July 11, 2013 -The power unit in Butler Mobility’s inclined platform wheelchair lift is a high-quality, high-tech power lift and can be used for many other applications and purposes (such as material lifts, low-speed mixing purposes, packaging machinery and conveyors), says the company. The unit has a rigid, double-decker chassis design that includes thick aluminum plates and durable fasteners, as well as a brake that holds the motor without power and a gear box in a sealed unit. The unit’s chain drive is rated for more than a 6,000-lbs. capacity.
