Scissor Lift Mounts To UTV
You can turn a side-by-side UTV into a mobile lift station with the UTX scissor lift from Innovative Equipment. The battery-operated attachment can lift 2 men or up to 600 lbs. up to 19 ft. in the air.     “Farmers and hunters love it,” says Marc Dack, Innovative Equipment, a division of Extend Manufacturing. “It’s handy for trimming trees and working on large equipment or buildings and is legal for hunting in at least 7 states.”
    The UTX has a net weight of about 800 lbs. and can be attached to any UTV with a 1,000-lb. cargo box capacity. Available with a 60 by 30-in. (UTX 30) and a 60 by 44-in. (UTX 44) working platform, the scissor lift is quickly installed or removed. The key to installation is the universal adapter plate. It is installed after removing the OEM cargo box. Once attached, the UTX can be added or removed in only 2 to 3 min., according to Dack. Once the UTX is removed, the cargo box can be reattached to the adapter plate.
    “We wanted to make it simple enough that a 12-year-old could put it on,” he says. “We’ve sold quite a few for a variety of uses. Hawaiian Airlines uses them as a quick response unit to get up high and work on jets.”
    Four manual jacks are included. Optional electric jacks are available. In storage mode, all 4 jacks are used to hold the UTX above the adapter plate level.
    The UTX is fully equipped with sensors that constantly evaluate stability when the lift is about to be used, as well as while in use. It has visual and audible overload and tilt alarms and lockouts.
    The UTX is powered by a self-contained 12V DC system with a heavy-duty battery. The charging unit uses 110 AC power. A single charge can power up to 150 lifts.
    “The battery is only used to power controls and the UTX’s hydraulic pump when lifting,” explains Dack. “Gravity brings the platform down.”
    The UTX starts at $8,100. In addition to use on UTV’s, the UTX can also be loaded and used on a forklift.
