PowerLift is a Time-Saver for a Canadian Aircraft Refueler: Case Study 
Today, we are also eager to tell you how our PowerLift has helped a Canadian aircraft refueling company save significant time and ease the burden on their workers by using our lightweight, portable lift.

Problem: Harnois Aviation, located in St. Thomas Quebec, has been in business since 1958 and is committed to providing high quality petroleum products to clients in the aviation field and beyond. When refueling aircraft, workers form Harnois Aviation were using step stool scaffolding. The scaffolding was heavy, tough to roll around and did not provide a lot of flexibility. Workers were constantly needing to go up and down the stairs, which caused safety concerns and fatigue.

Solution: Pascolift, a ReechCraft dealer in Canada, provided Harnois Aviation with the perfect solution to their access problem! The ReechCraft PowerLift was able to save Harnois workers significant time as they are able to leave the PowerLift erected in the air as they move it around from aircraft to aircraft to refuel.

Benefits: Issues of worker safety and fatigue were addressed: workers no longer have to climb any steps to reach the refueling area. Additionally, when it is time to store the PowerLift, it is quickly lowered and disassembled without the use of any additional tools!

PowerLift's flexibility of use, combined with its lightweight frame, has so many uses that other machines cannot do! According to Eric Maffolini of Pascolift, “The PowerLift is working out great and Harnois Aviation is loving it! We were able to provide Harnois with one hour of training and they quickly realized how much time they would save!”

Just imagine the projects this lightweight machine could do for you! Whether it's hauling materials up and down stairs, indoor or outdoor projects, lighting, or even aircraft refueling, PowerLift can do it all!

Thanks to our dealer Pascolift, out of Drummondville, Quebec, for passing this great story along to us! If you have a ReechCraft project and would like to be featured on our blog, email pictures and information about the project to customer.service@reechcraft.com.

Here's what some of our customers have to say about PowerLift:

From Rory with Kangaroo Electrical"It's mind blowing how simple and easy the PowerLift is. As an electrician constantly working at height, this has allowed me to literally do more jobs in a week. I have cut down on scissor lift hire ten fold and I am taking on more work, which ultimately means more money in my pocket."

From Brett with Munro Group: "An amazing piece of machinery that we have integrated into our business. We use the Powerlift across our entire portfolio for a myriad of applications. The Powerlift's portability and ease of operation has ultimately saved us time and money. The constant battles that we and many other businesses face with working at height have just been made a hell of a lot easier."

From Phil with Decor Blinds Australia: "Well done ReechCraft, the PowerLift has proven to be an affordable, practical and safe tool for our business. We are accessing areas that would previously have cost us a considerable amount of money hiring either scissor lifts or static scaffolding in order to complete a job that can take ten minutes. As a lot of our work is at height, we have found the PowerLift to be incredible"

Learn About our Machines: OverSpeed Braking System & Tools-Free Connection System

Thank you for your interest in ReechCraft! We are eager to tell you about a couple of components that make our ReechCraft machines safe and easy to use while still being lightweight and portable.

We are proud to announce our latest generation PowerLift gearbox featuring an all-new Integrated OverSpeed Braking System. This new system provides even greater safety redundancy by automatically stopping the platform in the event of over speed. The OverSpeed Braking System eliminates the need for the cone brake, which was used on earlier models. This gearbox is expected to be released soon and will be available to purchase as an upgrade for previous PowerLift models.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Another feature that sets ReechCraft apart is our Tools-Free Connection System, which allows users to quickly and easily customize the height of their machine without the need for any additional hardware or equipment. Both PowerLift and PowerMast feature a quick, tools-free connection to ensure efficiency and safety while stacking mast sections. Each mast section includes a locking feature that requires mast connections to be locked in place before the platform or basket can advance. Adding, removing and stowing mast sections takes only seconds with our specially designed tools-free connection system! Click HERE to watch a video about this exceptional system.

Heritage Printing & Graphics: Case Study

Since our founding in 1993, ReechCraft has set itself apart with innovative products and first-rate services. We pride ourselves on our ability to respond to the market with our durable product solutions. Read below to learn how ReechCraft's PowerLift is helping a printer and sign company make day-to-day tasks easier! 

______________________________________________________________________________________

Company: Heritage Printing & Graphics

Locations: Charlotte, NC, Washington, DC, and Waldorf, MD

Problem:
Heritage installs custom cut signs, convention and meeting displays, and custom interior graphics as well as providing commercial printing, mailing services, graphic design and branding with a mission to provide quality visual communication solutions through best production practices supported by superior services. Heritage Printing & Graphics was looking for a solution to provide a safer work environment and easier method of installing signs and vinyl graphics because they can be large and very cumbersome making the use of ladders impractical and unsafe.

Solution:
In the last quarter of 2017, Heritage was budgeting for an upcoming year and a priority of the production department was to purchase a PowerLift from ReechCraft. In 2018, Heritage made that purchase along with a Hitch Hauler which allows for easy transportation between job-sites because it attaches to any standard 2” vehicle receiver to transport their PowerLift. They saw an immediate improvement in time and efficiency, initially using the PowerLift throughout their production area. Recently, Heritage printed and hung a large banner using the PowerLift; the banner was 8 feet wide and 92 feet long, and was attached to a wall 18 feet off the ground. They are also using the PowerLift to install displays, wall wraps, and window graphics for clients. As Heritage continues to grow, they plan to use the lift to install wiring and lighting.

Benefits:
PowerLift has been a welcome addition to the team at Heritage, proving itself to be useful, highly portable and versatile! According to Brent Thompson, Production Manager at Heritage Printing & Graphics, “The PowerLift provides us with more capabilities on installs, especially in stores and tight spaces. We utilized the lift to add new graphics to our sign shop too!”. Heritage's General Manager, Lamar Scott added, "We are very happy with the PowerLift, it will be useful for years to come!"

Fixed Base PowerLift Solves a Theme Park's Access Problem: Case Study

Since our founding in 1993, ReechCraft has set itself apart with innovative products and first-rate services. We pride ourselves on our ability to respond to the market with our durable product solutions. Today, we are eager to tell you how ReechCraft built a custom PowerLift to help a popular theme park inspect and maintain their attractions.

______________________________________________________________________________________

 

Problem:
Theme park employees needed to access cables, audio/visual and lighting and perform regular inspections and maintenance on one of their major attractions. However, the access point was located behind the attraction's wall, with very little space and wall obstructions that were part of the attraction's set. The biggest problem was the incredibly limited floor space that employees had to maneuver in and around, making the job impossible for standard aerial work platforms or scaffolding.

Before contacting ReechCraft, the company had previously tried suspensions, rappelling and boat swing chairs to access the area. These ordinary access equipment methods caused safety issues and usability limitations for the company.

Solution:
ReechCraft created a custom PowerLift with a fixed, floor-mounted base that was permanently anchored to concrete to solve the problem of limited floor space. There are multiple fixed bases located in strategic positions throughout the theme park and the major attraction. These fixed bases are unobtrusive and fit in the very small areas in the attraction's space. The PowerLift's portability allow it to easily access any of these fixed bases throughout the park.

This custom PowerLift is easy to transport and is taken down for storage when it is not in use. This allows the ride to fully function without hindrance when it's not undergoing inspections or repairs.

This ground-supported solution completely addresses any safety issues that ladders and rappelling access methods created. With this custom PowerLift, workers are free to use their hands and utilize the minimal available space, all while reaching work heights of 26 feet.

Custom Products for Your Unique Access Needs

Thank you for your interest in ReechCraft, and thanks to all of you who visited us at the World of Concrete Expo last week!

A Custom PowerLift for a Popular Cruise Line: Case Study

Problem: A popular cruise line recently launched a brand-new cruise ship featuring state-of-the-art LED technology in their Atrium Bar. This column is the focal point of the cruise ship's lobby, but also presents unique challenges when it comes to routine maintenance and inspections because of its height, nearby obstructions and unusual shape. The location of the atrium on the cruise ship also made it difficult to find a solution to address the problem.

Solution: ReechCraft created a custom, modular, elevated platform with a table-like design where masts can be quickly attached, unattached and reattached. The main mast allows many access points to the LED column, and the custom platform is able to be moved on or around any obstructions for optimal access at any of the column's access points. ReechCraft's compact and lightweight equipment was portable enough to move around the ship and get to the Atrium Bar.

Benefits: The cruise line is also able to use this custom aerial work platform in other locations around the ship. The masts quickly detach from the custom table-style base, which offers more usability in other areas of the ship and maximizes the benefits of this custom setup. The modular design also makes storage a breeze.

Custom ReechCraft PowerLift on Cruise Line

Since its founding in 1993, ReechCraft has set itself apart with innovative products and first-rate services. We pride ourselves on our ability to respond to the market with our durable product solutions. Today, we are eager to tell you about a custom machine and how we helped this client find a solution to suit their unique access needs.

Application: Custom PowerLift

Company: Cruise Line

Problem:
A popular cruise line recently launched a brand-new cruise ship with state-of-the-art LED technology. This new ship features an LED column in their Atrium Bar. This column is the focal point of the cruise ship's lobby, but also presents unique challenges when it comes to routine maintenance and inspections. The LED column is tall with obstructions like bars, chairs, and stools, which makes access and maintenance challenging.

The LED panels on the ceiling can be accessed, but the unusual shape of the column made maintenance at the different heights challenging. The location of the atrium on the cruise ship made it difficult to find a solution to address the problem.

Solution:
A cruise line representative stated the following about the custom aerial work platform created by ReechCraft: “For our ship, there were no other practical solutions that were as portable as ReechCraft's PowerLift with custom designed platform.”ReechCraft created a custom, modular, elevated platform with a table-like design where masts can be quickly attached, unattached, and reattached. The main mast allows many access points to the LED column, and the custom platform is able to be moved on or around the obstruction for optimal access at any of the column's access points. ReechCraft's compact and lightweight equipment was portable enough to move around the ship and get to the Atrium Bar.

The base of the platform wraps around the bar, has four locking swivel casters on the table base, and comes with two leg heights to accommodate different levels. The base allows various lateral positions that allow the worker to gain a better position on the LED column.

Benefits:
The cruise line is also able to use this custom aerial work platform in various other locations around the ship. The masts quickly detach from the custom table-style base, which offers more usability in other areas of the ship and maximizes the benefits of this custom setup. The modular design also makes storage a breeze.
