MAC's Vertical Home Lift Specifications
The MAC's Vertical Home Lift was designed and engineered for home use. It's easy to operate easy to install and virtually maintenance free. Every safety detail has been carefully designed into the PL-50 and PL-72, including a non-slip platform, constant pressure switches, a low platform for easy roll-on/roll-off, safety barrier and railing, and rolled edges.
The PL-50 and PL-72 are sturdy enough to lift and lower up to 600 pounds and will accommodate electric wheelchairs and scooters. Running on a gear box and chain, the PL-50 and PL-72 provide a smooth and quiet up and down ride, requiring little maintenance. All mechanics are fully enclosed, yet easy to access through the rear or front of the housing unit. The lifts are completely weatherized and attractively finished in off-white. Shipped fully assembled, the PL-50 and PL-72 install in 6 easy steps. The Mac's Vertical Home Lifts are the economical and practical answer to stair barriers.
