Harmar has lift systems for the inside, the outside, lifts that are hybrid as well as micro wheelchair lift systems. While some lift systems are relatively straight forward to assemble, others might be a bit tricky. Here’s what you have to consider when buying Harmar lift systems.
Harmar Inside Wheelchair Lift Systems
The inside lifts from Harmar are attached to a vehicle’s cargo section with a hoist mechanism which is specific to each system. This mechanism swings outside the vehicle and is used to hoist the electric wheelchair or mobility scooter into the vehicle.
The Harmar inside lifts and the hoist mechanism they use are perfect for SUV’s and big vans. Some Harmar inside wheelchair lift systems have a weight capacity of 200 to 400 pounds. This means that they can hoist an electric wheelchair or mobility scooter of that amount in weight. At Electric Wheelchairs USA we sell various Harmar Lift Systems for the inside, like the Harmar AL425 Axis II, and the Harmar AL425HD Axis II.
Within the inside lift systems range you can still choose from automatic powerchair lifts or choose the universal scooter models.
Harmar Outside Wheelchair Lift Systems
The Harmar outside lift systems for both the wheelchair and the mobility scooter acts as an attachment to the vehicle using a hitch. It comes as a stable platform that can securely fasten and hold a wheelchair or a scooter outside of the vehicle. When choosing a Harmar lift to buy, take the following features into consideration:
Platform size: Look at the platform size. Does it accommodate the size of your wheelchair or mobility scooter. Make sure as well that there is a bit of edge available after loading your mobility device in order for your device not to be flushed against the border of the lift.
Lifting capacity: Can the Harmar lift system you chose lift your particular brand and model of mobility scooter and electric wheelchair? Look at the weight capacity before you purchase and compare.
Manual or automatic: Whether a lift system is automatic or manual is very important as it determines the amount of exertion required of you.
Outside lifts can normally carry a load of 100 to 400 pounds. These are powerful machines that offer a great deal of protection for your mobility scooters and powerchairs. Of the Harmar outside lift systems, the Harmar AL100 Platform Scooter Lift is quite popular. It consists of a hold down arm that can securely fasten a mobility scooter or electric wheelchair. The Harmar AL100 also comes with a sturdy platform with a weight capacity of 500 pounds. The Harmar AL010 Micro Outside is another favorite outside lift. It was designed with 3 and 4 wheel scooters and power chairs in mind.
Harmar Hybrid Wheelchair Lift Systems
The hybrid lifts from Harmar are fastened in the cargo area of the vehicle. They can move out and down so that the electric wheelchair or mobility scooter can be moved from the ground onto the platform and from there into the vehicle. The lifting is done automatically. These lift systems offer the convenience of driving on and driving off.
