Foward Lift

Forward Lift’s new FS77 scissor lift uses less than 44 square feet of space and features a low-profile 4 ⅛ inch drive-over height for easy vehicle positioning. Its 24 ¾ inch independent platforms accommodate a wide range of vehicles and pick-up points. Ramps attached to the platforms are hinged to drop down to a 65-degree angle to increase accessibility for easier brake and wheel service or lock in the up position to extend the pick-up point surface area. The lift’s 78 ⅝ inch rise height creates working space for even the tallest technicians. It has a 7,700-pound lifting capacity.

The lift features a patent-pending inverse piston manifold system that fully synchronizes the platform movement during lifting and lowering cycles, eliminating the need for a connector bar between platforms that creates an obstruction on other scissor lifts. The same system offers blocked platform functionality that prevents both platforms from lowering if one platform is stopped by an obstruction or engaged lock, protecting the vehicle and the technician. 

The Forward Lift FS77 scissor lift features an easy-to-operate control panel and several features designed to protect against corrosion and wear, such as composite bearings, galvanized bottom weldment and a durable powder coated paint finish.
