2 - Insulated or Non-Insulated

The letter 'S' at the end of a model name signifies steel, meaning it is the non-insulated version of that lift. Anything without an 'S' is fiberglass. For example: DTAX is the insulated (fiberglass) version and DTAXS is the non-insulated (steel) version. Many of our lifts are available both versions. The model names are as follows:

Insulated Non-Insulated
DO DOS
DFSL DSL*
DT DTS
DHT DHTS
DTA DTAS
DTAX DTAXS
DPM DPMS
DPM2 DPM2S
DLT2 DLT2S
-- DVS**
*The DFSL is the only lift that doesn't follow the standard, add an 'S' for the non-insulated version naming system. The 'F' stands for fiberglass
**The DVS, or van series aerial lift is available in the non-insulated or steel version only.

 


 

3 - Model Numbers

The number at the end of the aerial lift name signifies which model number it is within each series. This number is also the max bottom of the basket height*. Here is a breakdown of all the models available with specifications.

*DO and DFSL series aerial lifts signify working height instead of bottom of basket height.

4 - TYPE OF CONTROLS / BASKET STYLES

Every once in a while you may notice a couple letters at the end of a lift name. For example: DPM-36 DU or DTAX-45 FP. These letters can either signify the basket style or the types of controls used to run the lift. Here is a quick explanation on what the letters stand for and where you may see them used.

TYPE OF CONTROLS

Here are the types of controls used to run the lifts and with which models they are available. For example you may see DTAS-35 FP or DTAS-35 TS.

DC - Drive (Battery) Controls
TS - Two Speed Controls
FP - Full Pressure Controls

  DC TS FP
DO     X
DOS     X
DFSL X X X
DSL X X X

BASKET STYLES 

DPM, DPM2 & DLT2 SERIES ONLY

Our material handling aerial lift lines are available with a variety of basket styles. Since all of these lifts have full pressure (FP) controls the model name instead includes the basket style designation. For example: DPM-47 DU or DPM2-52 MH. Here is a breakdown of what the basket style abbreviations stand for.

DP - dual person, non-material handling
DU - dual configuration: dual person OR single person, material handling
MH - single person, material handling
SP* - single person, non-material handling

*SP is available on DPM-36 and DPM-40 only
