Do I need special training to operate people-carrying lifts?

You do not need any special training to operate people-carrying lifts, as the operator is legally responsible for the use and operation of the people-carrying lifts. You will receive instruction in the operation of the equipment from us before commissioning or when you collect the people-carrying lift you have hired. However, we recommend that you attend an appropriate IPAF training course at our training centre to ensure the safe use of the people-carrying lift.

Can I transport loads in the basket of a people-carrying lift?

No. The work basket of the people-carrying lift is only used to lift you and your tools to a height. Smaller materials that you can easily hold in your hands, such as ceiling lights etc., can of course be taken into the work basket. For larger loads, such as sofas, safes, etc., we recommend a telescopic forklift.

Do the tyres of the people-carrying lift leave marks on my floor?

No. All our people-carrying lifts have non-marking tyres that leave no marks on your floor. This means that our hire equipment can also be used on sensitive floors, such as sports parquet floors. Always observe the load limits per wheel specified by the floor manufacturer for rolling loads.

Can I use the people-carrying lift to travel through narrow corridors and doors?

This is usually not a problem. With a height of 1.98 m and a vehicle width of 0.74 m, our PL 110 people-carrying lift also fits through narrow passages and has a considerable working height of 11.02 m.

How many people do I need to use a people-carrying lift?

All our people-carrying lifts are designed for one-man operation.

Can I move the people-carrying lift even when the workman basket is fully extended?

No. Due to the great working height offered by our people-carrying lifts, a lateral support is required to prevent the people-carrying lift from moving when the workman basket is extended.

Do I have to clean the people-carrying lift before returning it?

Cleaning is included in the hire price for normal use of the people-carrying lift. You should remove coarse soiling that requires intensive cleaning, such as paint, silicone, acrylic, concrete, etc., yourself before returning the lift. Alternatively, the cleaning costs for stubborn stains will be charged separately. The best way to find out about your individual application in advance is to visit one of our hire stations or call us on +49 921 789920.

Do I have to collect the people-carrying lift I have hired?

No. Our people-carrying lifts are not road-legal, which is why they may not be moved on public roads. Our in-house fleet of low-loaders will deliver your hired people-carrying lift to the desired location on the desired date and pick it up again at the end of the hire period. If you have your own means of transport, you are welcome to collect your hired people-carrying lift from one of our Wagert hire stations.

Is there a minimum hire period for people-carrying lifts?

No. You are flexible when it comes to the hire period for our passenger lifts. Whether 1 day or 1,000 days. We will be happy to advise you by telephone on +49 921 789920.

Can I book operating personnel for the people-carrying lifts?

Are the safety harnesses recommended for using the people-carrying lifts included in the hire price?

No. All our people-carrying lifts are delivered to you without safety harnesses. However, PPE kits (PPE = personal protective equipment) can be purchased from us. For safety and hygiene reasons, it is unfortunately not possible to hire safety equipment.

Am I allowed to drive a people-carrying lift on public roads?

No. Our people-carrying lifts are not road-legal, which is why they may not be used on public roads. They are also designed for indoor use. We will be happy to deliver your hired people-carrying lift to your place of use.

Which is the largest people-carrying lift I can hire?

People-carrying lift – the safe and stable working platform

Our people-carrying lifts are a particularly compact, comparatively lightweight type of work platform that is specially designed for indoor use. The electric-powered people-carrying lift scores highly with its compact design. Above all, its very narrow design ensures that the people-carrying lifts fit through narrow corridors and doors and can therefore reach almost any location. The vertical lift is also characterised by its low weight of just 360 kg. This not only makes it easier to transport the device, but also to assemble and dismantle it quickly in one-man operation. Another advantage: reliable stability thanks to lateral support. The load capacity of the workman basket of almost 160 kg ensures that a worker as well as equipment, machines and work materials can be reliably transported upwards to a working height of up to 11.00 metres. This saves energy, time and manpower.

Good to know: Thanks to their narrow width, manageable weight and abrasion-resistant tyres, the people-carrying lifts are ideal for indoor use. This makes them a safe and uncomplicated alternative to ladders - especially when you consider that ladder accidents are statistically the most common type of fall accident.

What is a people-carrying lift?

A people-carrying lift is an electrically operated people-carrying lifting platform that transports a person safely and stably to a certain height. These efficient lifts are generally used when the use of ladders is too dangerous and the use of scaffolding is too costly and inflexible. The lift can be set up quickly and saves space. It is equipped with a work basket that can be raised and lowered hydraulically using a lifting arm. It is electrically raised and lowered directly from the workman basket, making this work platform suitable for one-man operation.
