How to Elevate Your Projects With Self-Leveling Tracked Lifts

Hyrax self-leveling tracked lifts bring innovation, enhanced safety and versatility to various industries and projects. These specialized machines adjust to stay level on uneven terrain, making them safer and easier to use. They are also classified as under CDL, so you can operate them without needing a commercial driver’s license.

The ability to efficiently operate on uneven surfaces expands the range of applications for self-leveling tracked lifts, allowing you to take on a wider variety of projects with this construction site equipment.

What Are Hyrax Self-Leveling Tracked Lifts?

Hyrax self-leveling tracked lifts are specialized machines that lift personnel and equipment to high places for specific tasks, such as trimming a tree or fixing a roof. They are unique in their ability to automatically adjust to stay level on uneven ground, making them safer and easier to operate.

This machine’s telescopic boom lift can be operated quickly and comes with a smart jib. Its toothed return wheels and extended counterparts ensure operators are stable and productive.

These tracked lifts feature a working height of 41 feet and a full 600-pound capacity in the basket, coming under CDL weight for a standard gravity tilt trailer. Since you do not need a CDL to use them, they are more accessible to more users.

What Sets Hyrax Apart in Aerial Lift Equipment and Technology?

Hyrax self-leveling tracked lifts offer take an innovative approach to boom lifts and spider lifts, such as:

  • Greater stability: Hyrax lifts feature auto-leveling up to a 15-degree slope, which adjusts the machine to remain stable on uneven surfaces. This feature reduces the risk of tipping, enhancing operator safety and promoting a safer work environment compared to boom and spider lifts, which may struggle on rough terrain.
  • Enhanced maneuverability: Additionally, the tracked design of Hyrax lifts makes it easier to operate them in smaller spaces, offering improved flexibility in confined work areas compared to traditional lifts on wheels.
  • Ease of operation: The self-leveling feature of Hyrax lifts eliminates the need for manual operation. This aspect can enhance productivity, whereas boom and spider lifts often require more skill to operate effectively.

These advantages make Hyrax aerial lifts a versatile option for various industries and projects.
