Haulotte Group/Bil-Jax
Pro-Jax Utility Scaffold from Haulotte Group/Bil-Jax measures 29 inches wide — narrow enough for a single user to maneuver the unit through doorways — and is available with 6-, 8- and 10-foot brace lengths. The steel construction design reinforces a plywood deck and supports a 1,000-pound capacity. Units may be stacked to provide a maximum working height above 23 feet. The patented Saf-T-Lok allows users to adjust the platform height in 2-inch increments, ensuring that the platform remains level and locked securely during use. Patented knurled rungs provide an added measure of safety.

Werner Ladder
Werner’s PS-48 portable scaffold is designed to set up in seconds, provides multiple working heights, and the smooth gliding wheels allow for easy maneuverability. With a highest standing level of 30 1/8-inches and a width of 46 1/8-inches, it provides more than a 6-foot reach, and adjustments are easy with two individual planks that lock onto the four side crossbars. The total standing area is 41½-inches x 17 inches. The 500-pound load capacity (user and materials) portable scaffold doubles as a workbench or multi-level storage/organization unit.

Cosco Home and Office Products introduces the 20-6SS F1AY 6-foot Type-1A Signature Series fiberglass stepladder. The ladder features durable, lightweight, non-conductive fiberglass side rails. It comes equipped with a platform top step for a comfortable working space and non-marring, skid-resistant stabilizing feet to protect floor surfaces. The self-folding working tray includes recessed areas for paint cans and tools, a locking drawer with a cover and a drill holder.

Alimak Hek
The Hek Modular System is designed to reduce the number of components and maximize exchangeability of components between different machine types. The new mast-climbing transport platform product is broken down into three ranges: light, medium and heavy. Within each range, using three basic components, a series of various machines can be configured consisting of mast-climbing work platforms and transport platforms. All models operate on the same basic components. An Alimak mast and a single drive unit can be assembled to configure either a mast-climbing work platform or a transport platform, thus reducing the initial investment. The system is designed for higher lifting capacity and work platform areas are flexible and can be specified for each individual project.

Telpro Inc.
The Panellift Model 439 from Telpro is a manual multi-stage chain-drive drywall lifter designed to work alone when installing wallboard to walls, and cathedral and flat ceilings. The Panellift has a load height of 35 inches, and maximum reach of 14 feet, 5 inches and a two-way overload-preventing torque limiter.
