A manlift is a type of device that is capable of carrying workers and equipment up to a higher level of another floor. They are useful in a variety of different fields including agriculture, oil and gas, construction, and more. The pieces of equipment that are on the market today tend to be relatively safe devices, but it is always important that anyone using the device adheres to basic safety procedures to avoid injury to themselves and to others. Only those who are trained to use the machine should be operating it, and it is important to move the manlift slowly to ensure the utmost safety for those riding in the lift and for others in the area.

Known in the industry by several names, manlifts are often referred to as man lifts, personal lifts and personnel lifts. There are three types of manlifts: self-propelled, push-around and belt-driven. All vary in size and specialization.

Manlifts have a bucket, basket, or work platform at the end of the boom, and then controls on the bucket, or on the main part of the machine on the ground. The scissor lift has only vertical movement – it can go up and down only. These are generally able to support a lot of weight, with some of the largest platforms capable of holding and lifting around 1,500 pounds. This is one of the advantages over the boom lift. However, these types of manlifts are only able to go up a couple of stories. Boom lifts on the other hand have both horizontal and vertical movement, and some of the larger options out there can extend up to 110 feet. This means they can reach much higher levels than the scissor lifts. However, they are not capable of holding as much weight.
