The Pioneer Commercial Lift

Designed for commercial applications where a lift is required for disabled access and overhead space is not an issue, the Pioneer is perfect for organisations or businesses who have budgetary restraints.

Built to comply with the requirements of the Australian Standard 1735 part 16 and BCA E3.6, the Pioneer can travel up to 4 metres and is able to carry 350kg. Custom built and supplied within short delivery times, the Pioneer is supplied with its own self-supporting shaft and offers huge savings in that cladding can be attached directly to the lift shaft and no machine room is required. Driven by two oil hydraulic cylinders, the Pioneer is economical to run and service.
