Single man lifts, also known as vertical mast lifts, provide construction and maintenance teams the aerial support they need to take care of jobs that are several feet off the ground. Manlifts are similar in form and function to boom lifts but with a vertical mast, so they are lighter and can be used on fragile surfaces.
Manlifts are also smaller, so they can fit into narrow spaces, giving operators the precision and reach they need to access difficult out-of-reach areas. Manlifts are available in two varieties: self-propelled/driveable man lifts, and push-around man lifts. The two models come with aerial work platforms designed to support one person as opposed to several workers like boom lifts. Check out the FAQs below to learn more.
The makes/models shown are examples only and equipment delivered may differ. Contact customer support to check on the availability of specific makes/models.
A push-around manlift will cost $104 a day, whether you’re renting a 15-, 20-, or 30-foot model. Longer-term rentals cost more for taller lifts.
For instance, a 15-foot rental will cost you around $213 a week or $497 a month, compared to a 20-foot rental’s cost of $252 a week or $520 a month. Monthly rentals will cost you about $520 for a 20-foot lift and $593 for a 30-footer.
Vertical mast lifts commonly extend between 15 feet and 30 feet, depending on the model.
There are three types of man lifts commonly used for construction projects:
Both a single man lift and boom lift perform aerial tasks. Single man lifts are ideal for tighter spaces where minimal tools are needed.
Boom lifts are larger and there are models that can reach higher than manlifts. They can accommodate more than one person for jobs that require multiple workers. They also have a greater range of motion than manlifts and can move at different angles.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires training and aerial lift certification. Online classes, videos, and tutorials are available, as well as in-person training. You can be certified to operate a manlift after completing an online course offered by the U.S. Department of Labor, or you can receive training from major manufacturers.
