US manufacturer Lift-A-Loft has unveiled a new compact vertical mast lift, called Vertex.

Vertex can elevate to 12 ft (3.6 m) of platform height allowing a working height of 18 ft (5.5 m). The compact unit is designed to travel through a standard door and can work in very narrow aisles and congested environments. The unit offers 500 lbs (227 kg) capacity and comes with a variety of options to help with order picking and other applications.

The new mast lift offers 90-degree platform rotation to either side, providing 28 inches (8.5 m) of side reach. The unit can also be used to quickly rotate from one side of an aisle to another when pulling stock. The Vertex can drive at full elevation even with the platform rotated to either side.

“The Vertex is our first step toward building a lower cost product that can be manufactured and sold in volume,” said Todd Hunt, president, Lift-A-Loft.

Vertex features a maintenance free mast design and reversible electric drive motors. A CAN bus system controls the machine’s functions and the multi directional joystick makes the unit easy to maneuver.

Lift-A-Loft will enter full production of the Vertex in June and has numerous pre-production units on order.
