NORTON, Massachusetts—Presto Lifts is expanding its LiftStik line of lifter transporters. The Model PLS53-150 features compact design, maneuverability, and a powered lift making it useful in stockrooms, assembly areas, laboratories, offices, retail stores, food manufacturing and pharmaceutical facilities.

The LiftStik’s mast-style configuration places the platform and load directly over the four wheels to provide maximum stability. Using the fingertip control switch, operators can position loads at any height from 4.5 inches up to 53 inches. Lift controls are conveniently mounted on the push/steer handle and can be accessed when transporting loads. Lifting speed is 4.75 inches per second. The lift mechanism consists of a steel reinforced cam belt. There are no hydraulics, so there is no chance for fluid leaks.

Two platform options are available: wood laminate which measures 17.75 inches by 15.5 inches or HDPE plastic which measures 19.5 inches by 19.5 inches. The lifting capacity is 150 pounds at a 15.75-inch load centre, regardless of the platform specified.

Power to the lift mechanism is supplied by a 24 volt 7.2 Ah battery. A 115 volt external charger is included.

Front and rear swivel casters roll easily on any surface. Rear wheels feature a foot actuated floor lock to prevent the unit from moving as items are loaded and unloaded, or when used as a work positioner.
