LAL Railway Interchange Exhibit

There are hundreds of applications for aerial lifts in a broad range of industries. For some of those industries, scissor lifts aren’t just an occasional tool—they’re integral to day-to-day operations. The railroad industry is one of those industries.

Lift-A-Loft’s products and services are used by many key freight haulers and commuter rail operators. You’ll find our vertical mast lifts, scissor lifts, and truck-mounted units used in a variety of applications within the railroad industry. We’ve been supplying lifts to this industry for over fifty years.

For this reason, Lift-A-Loft is looking forward to attending this year’s Railway Interchange exhibition in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Railway Interchange is the largest event of its kind in North America. With over 650 exhibitors, it’s a 300,000 square-foot showcase for the latest technology, services, and research in the railroad industry.  We’re proud to be one of the fourteen Indiana companies among the many great exhibitors. We love the opportunity to catch up with others in the industry and to share our railroad support equipment with the over 7,000 show attendees.

If you’re in the area, stop by the Indiana Convention Center between September 29 and October 2 to say hello and check out our offerings. If you can’t make it, you can keep up with the exhibition by following #RailwayInterchange on Twitter—and you can always check out our website to get a look at some of the great lift products and services we’ll be sharing!


Making Headlines

In a recent issue of US Business Executive, Lift-A-Loft earned kind words regarding our commitment to excellent service, customized aerial lifts, and a rich understanding of the industry acquired through more than 60 years of experience.

“Our name has become synonymous with aerial lifts in the industry,” explains Todd Hunt, president of Lift-A-Loft. “Lift-A-Loft is now a generic term. Even some of the largest companies in the world like Boeing use our name to refer to other brands of aerial lifts. I’ll hear them say, ‘Go get the Lift-A-Loft’; that just goes to show how long we’ve been around.”

The Lift-A-Loft story began in the 1940’s, when we started engineering outdoor vertical truck-mounted lifts to service streetlights. By identifying a need and creating a solution, Lift-A-Loft revolutionized the performance of maintenance work through the use of aerial work platforms.

“We’re the oldest aerial lift manufacturer in the world,” shares Hunt. “We’ve been doing it longer than anyone in the industry and we pride ourselves on remaining 100-percent made in the U.S.”

As Lift-A-Loft continues to grow, so does our reputation for quality, custom-made aerial work platforms. “Our core business and what really sets us apart is our willingness to involve ourselves in custom solutions,” Hunt notes. “We view our customers as partners and we believe in building long-term relationships with them. For the most part, we’re building a system specific to a particular customer’s needs.”

In addition to specializing in custom-designed aerial lifts, Lift-A-Loft has also retained an outstanding reputation for standard aerial lift solutions. The combination of custom and standard products has provided Lift-A-Loft with continued relevancy and has fortified our name as an industry leader.

Whether your work requires a custom or standard aerial lift, Lift-A-Loft has the engineered solution you need. As Hunt notes in the interview with US Business Executive, “We have a niche company. Couple that with the fact that we treat our customers in the same manner in which we’d like to be treated and it makes for long-term, profitable relationship for both parties.” Be sure to contact Lift-A-Loft for your aerial lift needs!

Product Spotlight: TMX Truck-Mounted Lift

Lift-A-Loft (LAL) offers its customers a full line of safe and reliable aerial lifts and equipment. Whether customers are performing a manufacturing process, conducting inspections, or repairs, LAL has many solutions for working at height. Check out the TMX truck-mounted lift in action! – t=18

The TMX series truck-mounted lift is available with an optional telescopic overhead lanyard system that provides fall-arrest protection for workers performing aircraft crown maintenance. The machine was engineered with safety, efficiency, and reliability in mind, allowing for up to three workers to be secure while working over the center of an aircraft fuselage.

The telescopic scissor mechanism allows for a maneuverable and compact truck-mounted maintenance lift while still producing a 15-foot long work platform. It also provides a wide stance at full elevation and a secure work platform that is impossible to attain with a conventional scissor lifting apparatus.
The platform can traverse 8 feet to the rear of the unit in order to provide over-wing access. This system is also outfitted with four electrically actuated slider panels that can be extended 48 inches to one side of the platform.

The overhead lanyard system can be extended to let workers access the fuselage to conduct inspections and make modifications or repairs. Tools and parts can easily be brought up to height with the large working platform of the TMX.
This lift is a fantastic representation of the quality for which Lift-A-Loft is known. As always, be sure to contact us for any of your aerial lift needs.
