The JLG LiftPod is the first personal and portable aerial work platform (AWP) on the market to replace the ladder. The price of the unit is 25-percent the cost and weight of an entry-level AWP. The LiftPod consists of three main sections — the base, the mast and carriage, and the platform — which are each about 55 pounds or less and can be assembled by one person in less than 30 seconds. Powered with a common 18-volt cordless drill, the LiftPod has a 14-foot working height and allows its user to work with both hands free in a 360-degree range of motion. The LiftPod’s lightweight and compact size allow for one person to move it around the worksite or transport it in the back of a pick-up truck with little effort. An optional power pack and a pair of quick-change batteries allow continuous work.
