Wheel chair lifter
Anyone who has a physical disabilty that requires use of a wheelchair or 3-wheel scooter will be interested in this new wheel-chair lifter that lets you load a chair into the pickup box while sitting in the cab of the truck. The "Out-Rider" mounts right behind the cab on either the driver's or passenger side of the truck. It's electrically operated off the vehicle's battery and has motorized up/ down, swing in/swing out movement plus an electric actuator on the main mast that raises it up and down so you can gently set the load down in the bed of the pickup. Automatic stops limit boom travel. Bolts to the truck bed - requires no welding. It'll lift a wheel-chair, scooter or other objects up to 200 lbs. A control panel in the cab has a series of buttons that lift, rotate and lower the chair to the floor of the pickup. When unloading, it sets the chair down right next to the cab where it's easy to get into. Sells for $1,995. (Bruno Independent Living Aids, 430 Armour Ct., P.O.
