JLG Industries’ portable manlift – LiftPod – won the first ever Access International Product of the Year award. The LiftPod was recognised as a safer, more productive alternative to ladders, given its working height of up to 4.2 m (14 ft), easy-to-transport sections and a platform raised by a battery pack or a standard 18 V power tool.
The LiftPod® FS60 portable manlift was also named a 2011 New Product of the Year by Occupational Health & Safety magazine.
