A boot hoist is a small crane designed to lift the scooter/powerchair in to the boot. There are two main types of hoists: two way & four way.
The four way option is a fully powered hoist that will lower and raise the scooter and also swing in and out of the car by remote control.
The telescopic 120kg hoist simply and efficiently loads and unloads scooters and wheelchairs to and from the boot. It has a single button operation and the automated sequencing can be stopped or reversed at any time. There is no requirement to guide the scooter or wheelchair throughout the hoisting process.
The Joey fits inside a minivan or full size van to lift the user’s unoccupied scooter or powerchair onto the platform and store in the van. Securing belts are included for added safety when the platform raises into the van.
40kg 2 Way Hoist
The 40kg 2 way hoist is ideal for lifting manual wheelchairs into the boot of most vehicles. The arm and boom fold away when not in use. It has a locking position for safety before lifting.
80kg 4 Way Hoist
This 4 way hoist lifts powerchairs and scooters up to 80kg. It fits into most 4x4s, MPV type vehicles, estate cars and some hatchbacks. The hoist assembly can be easily removed if extra space is needed.
The hoist is installed to the side of the vehicle and runs off the vehicle’s battery. It is, however, protected from overload by a fuse and current limiting device. Taller and wider wheelchairs and scooters can be accommodated with the newly designed hook and spreader bar.
