The Brig-Ayd Post Hoist is a simple unit that enables loading and unloading of wheelchairs and scooters weighing up to 75kg from a vehicle to which it is fitted. The hoist is supplied with a single point lifting hook and a lifting bar that attaches either side of the wheelchair or scooter. Either can be used.
The hoist has a power on/off switch and a rocker switch which is held down to either raise or lower the wheelchair/scooter.
The power switch also provides overload protection and will trip if the current drawn by the motor is too great. The arm of the hoist is rotated by hand to move the wheelchair or scooter in and out of the vehicle.
