Taking the Weight Off. Penny Hydraulics Launch New Vehicle Lift.

28th October 2020

Staff shortages are a pain point for businesses, especially in supply chains, where absences through injury or delays from inefficiencies can cause serious issues and cost thousands.

Penny Hydraulics, the UK's leading manufacturer of lifting equipment has launched a brand-new product after their clients reached out for help.

The Lightweight LoadLift has been designed as a cost-effective lifting solution for those who need to lift up to 100kg. 

Weighing in at approximately 47kg, the lift provides van users with a compact lifting solution that doesn’t use up the payload or footprint of the vehicle. Making it the perfect option for deliveries of white goods, tote boxes, tool chests and components. And enabling drivers to move bulky items on and off their vehicle easily, safely, and efficiently.

Like many products in the Penny Hydraulics range, the Lightweight LoadLift was developed based on customer need. Designed to reduce the risk of manual handling related injuries and increase the efficiency of workforces.

It joins the rest of the companies’ vehicle mounted lifting equipment, comprising of SwingLift cranes, hydraulic PH cranes, hydraulic loading platforms, and winches. All of which are manufactured in the UK with an average 4-week lead time. Plus, a 12-month parts and labour warranty as standard.

Dan Casey, Marketing Manager, commented: “The Lightweight LoadLift will help businesses to unleash the potential of their vehicle and workforce, plus increase productivity and job capability.

One in every three accidents at work are caused by manual handling. The Lightweight LoadLift helps prevent these manual handling injuries that can cost businesses upwards of £8,000, plus improve health and safety procedures all round.

We’re very proud to launch the new lift and look forward to seeing how it will be received in the industry.”
