Hy-Brid Lifts Debuts LeakGuard System for Scissor Lifts

Hy-Brid Lifts LeakGuard

Hy-Brid Lifts introduced its trademarked LeakGuard system, an integrated surface protection solution for its MEWPs that provides 110% hydraulic fluid containment.

LeakGuard presents users with an alternative to inconvenient and messy containment methods, including commonly used diapers. This solution allows contractors to access more jobs with strict environmental and spillage regulations that require a leak prevention system. The single-tray system offers a more convenient option than models with three- or four-tray designs.

Hy-Brid Lifts will highlight LeakGuard and the company’s new series of scissor lifts at the ARA Show, Booth 4050 in Orlando, Florida, on Feb. 10-12.

Hy-Brid Lifts are electrically driven and steered which means only elevation uses hydraulics. This reduces the number of hydraulic connection points, which greatly minimizes the risk of any hydraulic leakage. While spills or leaks are highly unlikely, LeakGuard will give users peace of mind knowing their flooring is completely protected from hydraulic fluid spillage.

“Our customers were asking for a way to more effectively prevent potential hydraulic fluid damage to surfaces, so we made it happen,” said Terry Dolan, Hy-Brid Lifts president & CEO. “The integrated system features an intuitive, single-tray design, making things even easier for operators. LeakGuard will open doors to more opportunities by allowing contractors to get on highly regulated jobsites they may not have previously had access to.”

The system consists of a stainless-steel tray and disposable pads. The tray sits under the hydraulic pump in the base of the lift and extends under the scissor stack. The tray can be accessed by opening the cover on the pump side.

The system is easy to check for leaks, and in the unlikely event of a leak, the pad changeout process is simple and doesn’t take much time. Additionally, if the lift cylinder leaks, the hydraulic fluid will drip onto a tapered cover under the scissors, which captures the oil.

All Pro Series scissor lifts are manufactured LeakGuard ready, including the all-new 19-foot PS-1930. To make the lift LeakGuard equipped, the pan and pads can be purchased with the lift or added in the future without the need for modifications. Hy-Brid Lifts will also offer packs of replacement pads for customers to purchase in the future.
