More about One-Person Lifts

Our one-person lifts for rent are reliable, portable and simple to operate for construction and maintenance jobs like electrical work and ceiling repairs. These vertical lifts, also known as man lifts or personnel lifts, can reach up to 34 feet for indoor maintenance, painting, inspection and other jobs. Their narrow width allows the lifts to pass through a standard doorway, and the “X” placement or outriggers will fit in tight work areas. From electric vertical masts to push-around vertical mast lifts, these lifts are convenient and easily moveable around your worksite. Available options include pew straddle accessories, ideal for working over pews/seating, as well as narrow options, like scissor lifts, that are ideal for tight spaces. Learn more about these pieces of equipment in our FAQ and Tips for Choosing sections below. 

FAQs
What's the difference between a vertical lift and a push-around lift? 

A vertical lift is a type of aerial work platform designed for tight, vertical lifting, ensuring mobility in small spaces. A push-around lift is a subcategory within vertical-lifts, where the lift is moved to its final destination before extending its platform.  

How high can a vertical mast lift go?  

The height of a vertical lift, also known as a single-man lift, varies by model and classification. The maximum range to be expected of a vertical mast lift is 20 feet when fully extended. 

Are safety harnesses required on a man lift or platform? 

A harness is not required on a man lift or aerial work platform as long as the guardrails meet OSHA regulations for acting as adequate fall protection. 

Choose the Right Vertical Lift
Choose your fuel source

United Rentals offers vertical mast lifts that come in push-around and electric, self-propelled models to get workers right up close to the work.

Electric-powered vertical mast lifts won’t damage floors or emit exhaust and are excellent for relatively low-height, indoor maintenance jobs in tight work areas.

Push-around vertical lifts are compact, versatile and offer excellent maneuverability.

Know your size

With small footprints, easy maneuverability and a tight or zero-degree turn radius, personnel lifts are perfect for tight spaces. 

Vertical mast lifts have a load capacity that ranges from 300 pounds up to 500 pounds.

Our man lifts can reach from 15 feet up to 30 feet, ideal for elevated painting and lighting work. 

Where to use a vertical lift

Twelve-foot electric-powered vertical mast lifts are ideal for indoor work and are designed to fit in narrow spaces, such as doorways, freight elevators and in between tight racks. Although these lifts work well indoors, they can also be used for outdoor projects.

Twenty-foot push-around vertical mast lifts with narrow platforms are handy for performing certain types of ceiling work without removing the ceiling grid.

Single-person lifts are also often used for painting and lighting work, warehouse stock picking and work in churches and offices.

Know your features

Vertical lifts are a safer and more efficient alternative to ladders. They feature a telescoping, rotating mast and are easily operated and driven from the platform. 

The mast-guide system provides stability while minimizing deflection and sway, but the lifts are built for portability and convenience, not heavy loads.
