Mobilift is a multipurpose, portable wheelchair lift that provides access to stages, outdoor bleachers an elevated platforms. According to product info, the lift is ideal where structural modifications are impractical, unattractive, too costly or prohibited for historic reasons. It is manually powered making it easy to use and highly portable. The absence of batteries, hydraulic and electric components make the lift extremely reliable and virtually maintenance free.
Township vehicles will be modified to transport the Mobilift.
