That is the equivalent of approximately 4,450 pounds!

Battery Powered

The TranzVolt is interchangeable with major leading battery brands batteries as well so you will always be able to keep the job going! We started the development of a solar platform lift to provide the most reliable solution for solar installers. We listened to customer requests and delivered the TranzVolt Platform Ladder Hoist.

Converting construction equipment for remote-controlled access has several advantages over push-button operations. The most obvious advantage is safety! The TranzVolt has convenient one-press operation controls Operators can safely send the Solar Platform to the roof. The TranzVolt Homing System will automatically stop the solar platform at the designated location without any additional steps.

Now the team on the roof can safely unload up to five panels while the platforms lock into position. There is no need for foot pedals or brakes! With the TranzVolt, teams can focus on loading and loading without having to wait for the Platform to return. Simply press the button and send the TranzVolt on its way!
