Portable Electro-Hydraulic Platform
Lift platform lets Bob Medd get into his Deere combine and tractor cabs. He also uses it for servicing equipment or for reaching anything on the farm that's too high to reach from a wheelchair.
Lift is moved around by hand pushed, or "wheeled" from seat but lift is provided by a 12-V battery operated hydraulic pump.
The platform raises to a maximum height of 14 ft. on a large steel mast directly behind the operator. The mast telescopes as it nears the top and, for storage, it can be hinged down out of the way. The platform, equipped with three pneumatic tires in a tricycle arrangement, has a seat into which Medd hoists himself from his wheelchair, using a lift bar.
