 Truck auxiliary lift and trailer suspension manufacturer, Silent Drive, Inc., announced a joint venture with Portable Lift Equipment, Inc. to manufacture and distribute the TP 9000 mobile scissor lift, a towable, auto-leveling scissors lift that does not require a special trailer for transport and can be used for tree trimming applications.


The TP 9000 features a 48-inch by 64-inch platform with a 30-inch rollout deck extension and a 28-foot maximum working height. Two 12-volt DC deep cycle batteries provide 50-100 lifts per charge. An on-board battery charger and 110 VAC power are standard.

The lift meets ANSI and CSA standards and features outrigger legs for stability, as well as non-slip steps and platform to ensure user safety. An optional auto-level feature allows the lift to be set up quickly and safely. The lift can also be customized for specific applications. A self-drive option will be available in July of 2009.
