Custom Equipment Introduces ZT-1630 Hy-Brid Lift

April 22, 2019 – Custom Equipment LLC introduced the ZT-1630 to its Zero-Turn Series of lifts.

A compact scissor lift with precision maneuverability, the ZT-1630 is the tallest offering from Hy-Brid Lifts, delivering a 16-foot platform height and a working height of 22 feet. The lift was previewed at the 2019 ARA Show in February in Anaheim, California.

“The ZT-1630 is a natural extension to our product line,” said Terry Dolan, Hy-Brid Lifts president and CEO. “Not only does a 16-foot lift help meet the needs of various industries, the ZT-1630 is a premium machine for serious operators. Contractors seek machines that boost their productivity and allow them to tackle challenging projects. This lift does just that.” 

The new generation of lifts — comprised of the Push-Around Series (PA Series), Pro Series (PS Series), and Zero-Turn Series (ZT Series) — aligns with Hy-Brid Lifts’ commitment to increased efficiency and safety on the jobsite.

The ZT-1630’s point-and-go-style drive allows movement in confined spaces and the proportional controls provide feather-like control for optimal lift positioning and precise jobsite mobility. The ZT Series features a compact size, large work platform, and high lift capacity. It also includes the built-in tool tray and signature lightweight design of Hy-Brid Lifts, which allows for earlier access to sensitive flooring.

According to the company, the ZT-1630 is a safer and more secure alternative to a traditional mast lift. The scissor stack supports the weight of the platform with four points of contact, while mast lifts are supported by only one point of contact. The lift also provides the operator a larger work area than standard mast-style lifts. 

Hy-Brid Lifts designed the ZT-1630 to comply with the all-new ANSI A92.20 standards. This regulation, which will become effective December 2019, covers design, calculations, safety requirements, and test methods for mobile elevating work platforms.

All Hy-Brid Lifts are heavy-duty, safe, and lightweight with low wheel loads that allow users to maneuver them over delicate floors and get onto green concrete sooner. They are USA-made with high-grade steel, and feature non-marking tires and a low step-in height. All lifts are covered by a two-year parts and labor warranty and a five-year structural warranty.
