Titanlift boasts 17 feet of working height and 1,750-pound load capacity

Augusta, GA - March 4, 2013 - With up to 17 feet of working height and equipped with a 48-volt powertrain, the new Cushman Titan T-1145 scissor lift has the versatility and power to get the work done.

"The combination of an aerial work platform and an electric burden carrier, gives the Titan T-1145 the speed and versatility to increase productivity compare to traditional scissor lifts," said Darryl Heffline, vice president of commercial business at Cushman. "With 17 feet of working height, a load capacity of 1,750 pounds and a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, the features of the T-1145 quickly dwarf even the largest jobs."

The Cushman Titan T-1145 has seating for two passengers and comes with a fully electric, zero-emissions 48-volt powertrain. Other features include a 19-inch slide-out deck extension, swing-out battery tray, front and rear bumpers, a DC-to-DC converter, four-wheel hydraulic brakes and headlights with turn signals.

A single operator can deploy the aerial work platform in under 60 seconds to get right to work. With the scissor lift detracted, the vehicle functions as a burden carrier, able to transport a 1,750 lb payload and tow 4,250 lbs at 13 mph to improve workplace productivity. The electric vehicle's quiet operation is ideally suited for indoor use by reducing workplace fatigue and customer disturbance. The T-1145 is built and tested in accordance with ANSI A92.3. Operator safety is further enhanced with interlocks and vehicle stabilizers.
