RV Travel with Handy Lift

We would like to express our sincere thank you for your Handy Lift product. We just had it installed on our bumper pull rv around the first part of May. We have been out on a couple of trips and it has been a life saver. My husband can't hardly walk or climb stairs and my knee is almost gone and I can't climb either. So your lift has made it possible for us to continue to travel in our rv for I hope several more years.

Newly Installed Handy Lift

I just finished installing the handy lift on our Motorhome. My mother bought it to aid her getting in and out. It was easy to install and works great.

Thanks so much for a great experience and great service.

Safety and Hydraulic Lifts

There are many uses for hydraulic lifts, from window washing to mobile lifts. In any type of situation, from personal to industrial, it is important to follow all proper safety procedures to avoid injury to yourself or others during use. Be sure to read the instruction manual for the equipment prior to use, and if certification is required, do not use the machine without the proper training and certification. In addition to these steps, also follow these common safety practices to ensure safe operation:

Inspection: It is important to inspect the unit before each use and several times throughout the year (as recommended) to ensure that the equipment can hold up to regular use. Look for loose connections, shaky joints, and a smooth operation every time. If needed, have the hydraulic lift serviced every few months to ensure it remains in top shape.

Usage: During use, always use any included safety elements, such as safety harnesses or helmets. Never jump on the lift, shake the lift, or lean out over the lift. These actions can cause unnecessary strain on the equipment, causing it to break or become damaged.

Maintenance: Always lower the lift completely after each use. Keep all parts clean and free of grease and oil. Keep safety equipment nearby and labeled for easy use. Label and color-code all controls to make it easy to operate the equipment, even under pressure. Lock the equipment in place when not in use, to ensure that the machine cannot roll away or turn on unexpectedly during service or when not in use.

If you follow the above safety tips combined with usage safety tips, you will not only stay safer, but your lift equipment will last longer too.
