eDaily: JLG FS80LiftPod

March 12, 2008

According to JLG, its new FS80 LiftPod is “the most portable aerial work platform in the world.” Each of the LiftPod’s five modules (base, mast and carriage, platform, power pack and work tray) is designed to be “carried by one person and can be assembled in around 30 seconds.” The LiftPod is a practical alternative to a ladder, says JLG, and typically can be transported in the back of a utility vehicle. The 63-pound base of the LiftPod is made of high-strength steel, and its mast (44 pounds) and platform (30 pounds) of lightweight aluminum. The new aerial work platform’s power pack (15 pounds) can elevate and descend with a worker an average 20 times before recharging is required. The LiftPod has a platform height of 7 feet 8 inches, a platform size of 24 x 20 inches, and a platform capacity of 300 pounds.
