The LiftPod® by JLG is the first personal and portable aerial work platform designed as an alternative to the ladder. Powered with any common 18-volt cordless drill and easily transportable in the back of a van, pick-up truck or SUV, the LiftPod provides users a 360-degree range of motion and the ability to work with both hands at a working height of up to 14 feet. The lightweight design and compact size of the LiftPod allow a single person to move it around on the work site with its non-marking polyurethane wheels. It also can be assembled by one person in less than 30 seconds. The LiftPod is operated with a typical 18-volt cordless drill or an optional power pack and a pair of two-hour quick-charge NiMH batteries to allow continuous work, with about 20 up-down cycles per battery.
