Harmar lifts for vehicles are designed to safely transport a power chair, scooter, or manual wheelchair on a vehicle. The specific lift you choose depends on the combination of vehicle, hitch class, mobility device, and your physical capabilities.
Auto lifts are designed with varying degrees of automation from manual to partially automated to fully automatic securement and lifting. The user should feel comfortable and capable of handling whatever that specific lift style requires.
An Outside Auto Lift is attached to the vehicle by means of a hitch and consists of an actuator and platform which secures and carries the mobility device on the back of the vehicle.
The operator of an Outside Lift should have the following capabilities:
Walk from front to rear of the vehicle and back.
Stand for two to three minutes while the lift operates.
Drive or push the mobility device on/off the platform.
Insert the key and rotate it 90 degrees to turn on and activate the lift.
Apply pressure to hold the up/down toggle switch while the lift operates.
For models requiring securement with retractors, connect hook to location on mobility device. Pull strap end or turn knob to increase tension (single and dual-hand retractors available).
