PowerLift is a Time-Saver for a Canadian Aircraft Refueler

Today, we are also eager to tell you how our PowerLift has helped a Canadian aircraft refueling company save significant time and ease the burden on their workers by using our lightweight, portable lift.

Problem: Harnois Aviation, located in St. Thomas Quebec, has been in business since 1958 and is committed to providing high quality petroleum products to clients in the aviation field and beyond. When refueling aircraft, workers form Harnois Aviation were using step stool scaffolding. The scaffolding was heavy, tough to roll around and did not provide a lot of flexibility. Workers were constantly needing to go up and down the stairs, which caused safety concerns and fatigue.

Solution: Pascolift, a ReechCraft dealer in Canada, provided Harnois Aviation with the perfect solution to their access problem! The ReechCraft PowerLift was able to save Harnois workers significant time as they are able to leave the PowerLift erected in the air as they move it around from aircraft to aircraft to refuel.

Benefits: Issues of worker safety and fatigue were addressed: workers no longer have to climb any steps to reach the refueling area. Additionally, when it is time to store the PowerLift, it is quickly lowered and disassembled without the use of any additional tools!

PowerLift‘s flexibility of use, combined with its lightweight frame, has so many uses that other machines cannot do! According to Eric Maffolini of Pascolift, “The PowerLift is working out great and Harnois Aviation is loving it! We were able to provide Harnois with one hour of training and they quickly realized how much time they would save!”

Just imagine the projects this lightweight machine could do for you! Whether it’s hauling materials up and down stairs, indoor or outdoor projects, lighting, or even aircraft refueling, PowerLift can do it all!
