MUNCIE, IN - Lift-A-Loft Corporation announced the development of a brand-new self-contained scissors lift that can easily mount or be removed from the bed of a pickup truck.

The TL22 was developed for lift users who do not need to trailer and haul a separate lift to the job site.  If a pick-up truck can be positioned directly at the work location, then the TL can be used to quickly and efficiently do the job.  Applications for the TL may include, Bridge and Tunnel Repair and Inspection, Commercial Sign Work, Construction, Facilities Maintenance, Film work, Holiday Decorating, Home repair, Hunting, Painting, Parking Lot and Street Light Work, Security, Traffic Signal Maintenance, and Tree Trimming.

"Keeping it simple is Key," says Lift-A-Loft CEO William Fulton.  "After a simple installation kit is installed, the TL22 can be placed in the bed of the truck to do a specific job.  When the truck bed is needed for other jobs, the lift can be removed and stored in just minutes.  One truck can be used to change lights in the morning and haul cargo in the afternoon."

The TL22 can be mounted in any pick up truck that offers 2,650 lbs. of payload with an 8' long bed.  It features a self-contained power pack that automatically re-charges from the trucks electrical system.  The truck also does not need to keep running while the lift is in operation.  This saves on fuel and is good for the environment.  The unit meets the requirements of ANSI A92.2 and does not require outriggers.

The TL22 offers 500 lbs. of platform capacity.  When mounted on a 32" truck bed, the unit provides 21'10" of platform height.  The unit also comes standard with a 36" rear extenda-deck that adds to the products versatility.

"Preliminary Field tests and Demonstrations have gone well," says Lift-A-Loft Sales Manager Doug Jeurissen.  "This is a simple inexpensive product that definitely fills a need in the market place"
