Custom Equipment Secures First HB-1230 Scissorlift Order

Jan. 3, 2014
Custom Equipment’s new HB-1230 scissorlift features a working height of up to 18 feet and a 30-inch-wide platform that can be extended to nearly 7 feet long.

Custom Equipment last week filled the first order for its new HB-1230 scissorlifts, the most recent addition to the company’s full line of Hy-Brid Lifts low-level access equipment. American Scissor Lift, Stockton, Calif., an independent dealer that rents, sells and services scissorlifts, boomlifts and telehandlers, purchased the first 27 units.

Custom Equipment introduced a prototype of the HB-1230 lift during The Rental Show in Las Vegas in February 2013, and American Scissor Lift was among the first companies to test it. The new HB-1230s will join 62 HB-1030 lifts that American Scissor Lift already has in its fleet.

“Our customers use our Hy-Brid Lifts for everything from electrical to drywall to plumbing,” said Mike Melthratter, president of American Scissor Lift. “They work in congested areas that often have low floor loading requirements, so they need lifts that are light enough and small enough to maneuver around framing and through doorways, but still provide enough platform space and capacity for their tools and materials. Hy-Brid Lifts meet those needs, so contractors generally keep them on jobs from start to finish.”

With HB-1230 lifts, contractors can work on projects like electrical, plumbing, drywall and sprinkler systems at working heights up to 18 feet. They can hold two people and up to 500 pounds on their platforms, which are 30 inches wide, 55 inches long and feature extensions that add nearly 29 inches of length.

Custom Equipment engineers and manufactures all-purpose Hy-Brid Lifts in electric and push-around models. For more information, visit
