Standard features

48' Outreach with 265lbs in basket

A stunning performance for such a small and light unit. Bringing 265 pounds 48 feet away from center generates a huge drop zone under basket, offering the possibility to drop material on the ground really fast. A great asset and awesome productivity increase.

5 feet articulated jib 140 degrees

The last section before the basket is called the jib. It is live even at full basket weight capacity. It offers maximum flexibility for a perfect final positioning at the working area. It also can be elevated while driving to allow better clearance of obstacles. On this unit, the amplitude of the jib is 140 degrees, allowing a total clearance of basket for all types of circumstances. It also allows a 10 foot height flexibility without touching the main booms.

Radio Remote Control Standard

The wireless remote control will take charge of all movements for drive, outriggers and boom operations from ground. It also provides the best wireless perspective and flexibility when driving in tight places. An on-board battery charger and extra battery are included.

Proportional Electric Over Hydraulic Basket Controls

Proportional ground controls allow smooth movements from both ground and basket controls. From the basket, an electric signal is sent down to ground and levers perform movements.

Hydraulic Basket Rotation

A key element to refined working position, real hydraulic rotation offers better insertion and final adaptability, and allows optimal working conditions.

Emergency LIVE Levers Ground Controls

Execute rapid emergency maneuvers with REAL live hydraulic joysticks for precision and safety in the movements. Get your operator down without stumbling in the process.

400° Unrestricted turret rotation

Offering reach even 20 degrees passed the 360 degrees "all around the clock" point, this great feature allows working at multiple areas from the same stabilization spot and is forgiving when you haven't started in the right direction.

AC Power to Basket

All units are equipped standard with GFI double outlet, with cable running through the boom. Perfect to use electric tools up in the basket.

Air/Water Line to Basket

A standard 3000 PSI air/water line runs from ground to basket through the boom to offer more flexibility and less weight in the basket.

Aluminum Standard Detachable Basket

The standard lightweight aluminum detachable basket can be removed in seconds from the unit to allow insertion in tight places, doors, gates, etc. Optional casters can be installed on baskets so they can be transported easily.

Black Deep Thread Extra-Long Rubber Tracks

Providing a major increase in both stability and weight distribution, extra-long black rubber tracks also provide an enhanced climbing capability to your unit. Made of durable rubber with a steel belt reinforcement, they are built to last.

High Quality Powder Coat Paint

Multi-layer powder coat baked paint is applied before parts assembly, offering the same protection everywhere on parts. Customs colors are available in option.

High Speed / Independently Operable Boom

All units are equipped with independently operable high speed booms, allowing far better insertion strategies and a lot more flexibility.

Hydraulic Variable Width Carriage

Designed to easily provide extensive stability to this particularly narrow unit, the real hydraulic track extension system will increase ground clearance and provide extensive stability for loading and climbing.

Patented telescopic boom power track

All hoses and harnesses are routed inside of the boom, and protected by a heavy duty unbreakable patented telescopic power track. All hoses and harnesses can be inspected and replaced quickly right on the job site.

Smooth and Automatic Basket Leveling

The hydraulic compensation system will keep the basket leveled to the ground all the time without any interaction required from the operator. For specific needs and tricky situations, there is a manual override.

Variable Outrigger Patterns

There are multiple outrigger positions since every outrigger is mounted on a swing-out pivot, allowing standard position (wide), narrow position or, for crowded floors, it is possible to mix positions for more flexibility.

Wind-Safe Up to 28 Mph (45 km/h)

The wind factor needs to be considered at all time when working in heights. Easy Lift units are fully safe under 28 Mph.

Safety

Basket anti-overload system

The anti-overload system is designed to prevent operation of a unit with an overloaded basket. An alarm and a red light, both at base and basket, will warn you. This system can be verified by operator during daily inspection.

Easy-to-Read Operational Pilot Lamps

For faster and more efficient troubleshooting from basket and base, the easy-to-read pilot lamps will quickly tell which condition isn’t met or what the current situation is.

Emergency Descent 12V Electric Pump

Bringing a harmed operator or broken basket control to the ground is always possible from the base using the emergency descent procedure. The electric 12V emergency pump just makes it easier since no manual pumping is required to move the oil and build pressure.

Emergency LIVE Levers Ground Controls

Execute rapid emergency maneuvers with REAL live hydraulic joysticks for precision and safety in the movements. Get your operator down without stumbling in the process.

Harness Anchor Points

All units are equipped with 2 standard harness anchor points located inside the aluminum basket. An additional anchor point is located on the fiberglass basket’s floor if the unit is equipped with this basket.

Passive Envelope Stability Management System

The passive stability management system is a working envelope monitored by several sensors and put together by a flow control. It is designed to prevent dangerous movements.

Smooth and Automatic Basket Leveling

The hydraulic compensation system will keep the basket leveled to the ground all the time without any interaction required from the operator. For specific needs and tricky situations, there is a manual override.

Wind-Safe Up to 28 Mph (45 km/h)

The wind factor needs to be considered at all time when working in heights. Easy Lift units are fully safe under 28 Mph.

A standard 3000 PSI air/water line runs from ground to basket through the boom to offer more flexibility and less weight in the basket.

Easy Access to Components

Minimal cover dismounting is required to access most of the main emergency components of the unit. Switches and hydraulics are easily accessible, allowing inspection and repairs right on the job site if required.

External Adjustable Wear Pads

Wear pads can be adjusted easily, no shimming required. Most can be replaced without the need to de-booming for extra convenience.

High Departure Angle

This is defined by how easy will you be able to climb any given obstacle (stairways, slopes, crosswalks, etc.) with limited use of ramps, wood blocks or else. The knowledge of this standard Easy Lift feature is crucial to make the best choice. This will be a blessing each and every time the unit will be used.

High Speed / Independently Operable Boom

All units are equipped with independently operable high speed booms, allowing far better insertion strategies and a lot more flexibility.

Hydraulic Basket Rotation

A key element to refined working position, real hydraulic rotation offers better insertion and final adaptability, and allows optimal working conditions.

Hydraulic Variable Width Carriage

Designed to easily provide extensive stability to this particularly narrow unit, the real hydraulic track extension system will increase ground clearance and provide extensive stability for loading and climbing.

Top Mount Lifting Points

On top of being safe due to their location on the machine and the fact that no spreader bars are required, top mount lifting points allow you to insert your unit in even harder-to-reach areas and places with a crane.

Variable Outrigger Patterns

There are multiple outrigger positions since every outrigger is mounted on a swing-out pivot, allowing standard position (wide), narrow position or, for crowded floors, it is possible to mix positions for more flexibility.

Reliability

Easy Access to Components

Minimal cover dismounting is required to access most of the main emergency components of the unit. Switches and hydraulics are easily accessible, allowing inspection and repairs right on the job site if required.

Greasable Fittings in All Pivot Points

All pivot points are easily accessible to prevent jerking, squeaking and insure a smooth pivot articulation.

High Tensile Steel Booms

All Easy Lift units' booms and structural components are made from Swedish high tensile flexible Domex SSAB steel. It allows the production of smaller, yet more resistant components.

Patented telescopic boom power track

All hoses and harnesses are routed inside of the boom, and protected by a heavy duty unbreakable patented telescopic power track. All hoses and harnesses can be inspected and replaced quickly right on the job site.

Proportional Electric Over Hydraulic Basket Controls

Proportional ground controls allow smooth movements from both ground and basket controls. From the basket, an electric signal is sent down to ground and levers perform movements.

Standard common 12V components

The electrical system is composed of standard 12V, North American, easy to find, Solid State, and compatible components. No hassle in finding 24V parts!

Standard high quality components

Most of the components used in our units are commonly used in industrial mechanical equipment on the market and are available everywhere in North America.

Options

Casters on Basket

Although it is far more convenient to be two men to move a basket, casters will make your task possible even if you're alone. No need to carry a dolly, just pure efficiency.

Custom Color Powder Coat Painting

Multi-layer powder coat baked paint is applied before parts assembly, offering the same protection everywhere on parts. This option will allow color matching through the RAL International Color Code to paint your unit with your own company colors.

Hostile Kit

Despite all your planning and care, accidents unfortunately happen. The 1/4-inch heavy duty thick aluminum plates composing the hostile kit will greatly minimize the impacts of such accidents on vital components of the unit: ground lever controls, outrigger switches and cylinders.

Non-Marking Soft Rubber Tracks

Never leave black marks anymore on any surface: concrete, brick patio, stone, marble, wood, epoxy coating, and so on. You will drive on non-marking tracks with peace of mind and won’t need to bite on your profit to clean up afterwards.

One-Man Fiberglass Basket

Very popular in the Utility and Tree Care markets, the one-man fiberglass basket will bring even more efficiency to those who often work in very tight places and hard-to-reach areas. There is no need to remove it at insertion and its dimensions makes it easy to insert within structures, branches, etc.

Outrigger Pads for Stabilizers

The outriggers needs some travel when they lift tracks off the ground. There are a few options available: 16 X 24 or 20 X 40 with or without sliding rails. Custom-made Teflon pads are designed to insure best load of each leg as well as best performance overall for operator.

Outriggers “Sinking” Alarm

The stability system on all Easy Lift units cannot prevent ground from collapsing under them. But as long as the outrigger's pressure is supported from ground, the unit will be safe and sometimes even able to work if slightly inclined. This system will warn the operator that the whole unit is inclined and/or sinking, even if it’s not possible to tell from the basket.

Strobe Light

With increasing safety regulations, this small option will soon make a huge difference and determine whether you will be able to go or not on a jobsite. Well worth it!

Two-Man Fiberglass Basket

This 2-Man fiberglass basket provides more flexibility regarding what tools can be carried up for work. The fiberglass makes insertion in branches as smooth as it can be.

Winter Start Package

Only one 110V AC standard plug is necessary to warm your hydraulic oil tank, maintain your battery fully charged and insure that your unit will start in cold weather. A must-have option for those whose next project is a garage for equipment.

Working Lamp on Basket

For a better view of the working area, under all circumstances, this powerful lamp will bring the sun everywhere.

Without a doubt purchasing a lift from UPequip was one of the most lucrative purchases in my career . As a 20 year tree climbing veteran it was a nice break up in the daily grind to not have to climb everything all the time. I love climbing but you simply cannot beat the production due to access and capabilities of the compact telescopic boom lift. It goes places and does things that have diversified my business and definitely increased income. The support from UPequip is second to none. They walk you through any issues with a phone call mostly, if on a rare occasion they occur. I love my easy lift and will purchase another as soon as possible.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here, but I felt compelled to share my experience with the folks @ UP Equipment. While I haven’t bought a significant number of brand new pieces of machinery, I have had years of experience trying to work with manufacturers to dial out the bugs and difficulties with heavy machinery. Point being, I have something to compare with. When you’re truly ready to pull the trigger on a compact lift, I feel you owe it to yourself to give UP Equip a call. Their communication and support has been top notch from the very beginning. I first spoke with Alain Paré. If I understand his position, he primarily handles sales, although he has gone out of his way to help me whenever I’ve reached out. I’m getting used to bypassing him and contacting other point people within the company, and they have all presented the same positive and helpful attitude. These people would include Martin and Remi. Remi handles tech support, and his guidance has been priceless. He is timely and methodical, making diagnosis and repair in the field feel like a breeze. All that said, I don’t want to convey the notion that I’ve spent hours broken down, wondering how I’ll finish the day. The problems I’ve had with the machine have all been minor and easy to fix. It can feel daunting when something isn’t working and you have no idea how to even diagnose. With the support of UP Equip, I’ve handled every single issue within an hour of reaching out to being back in action. I’ve assembled a small tool kit, consisting of 5mm & 6mm Allen Wrenches, a 19mm GearWrench, a Grease Fitting, a Test Light, and small Micrometer. My lunch bag is bigger than this tool kit. Most importantly, I can work with confidence that the dealer support is behind me 100%, and their motto, “Simple Inside”, holds true to the last letter. If you saw the 87-48AJ on display @ Expo last year, you saw my personal machine just days prior to delivery. This machine has made my work with stone dead and crumbling trees in tight locations possible. UP Equip will be at Expo this year as well, and I truly feel they deserve a visit if you’re in the market for a machine. Thanks for everything, @UP Equip !!!

As a customer from the US, I was a little apprehensive about buying equipment from a vendor in Canada for when repairs/maintenance issues arose, but UPequip has been very helpful and prompt in answering any questions we've had regarding our lift. Their customer service is excellent and they have always made getting my equipment back up and running a priority.

UpEquip has been valuable asset to our business. As an equipment rental company, our 70-36A spider lift was a phenomenal addition to our fleet. Alain was incredibly helpful during the buying process, and we know their service department is a quick phone call away should we need any assistance. Highly recommend!

I purchase a 61-36A machine a couple of years ago. Overall, I’m very happy with the machine and extremely happy with the service I’ve received from UPEquip. The machine suits my needs very well and have had few problems. I have had a few issues with electrical problems.. The AC/DC converter went bad twice but UPEquip was always a phone call away to get me out of a jam. I would highly recommend buying one of there machines and the follow up service is PRICELESS

I purchased an EasyLift 87-48AJ from Up Equipment in March of 2020. It has done an excellent job for us, more than doubling production on any job requiring a climber. In fact, I no longer employ a climber. If I cannot get the EasyLift close enough to a tree on a prospective job, I simply don't bid on that job. During the past 8 months, I have only turned down one job!! The lift will go easily into back yards completely inaccessible to a bucket truck, and yet is very sturdy when set up and operating. My lift operator , who has operated several brands of lifts, comments often on how smooth and sturdy it feels. It is simple to maintain, and Up Equipment has been very helpful in diagnosing and correcting the few minor problems that we have experienced with it. I expect many more years of productive service from it.

We purchased a unit, very reasonable price, units are simple strong and dependable. We have work to do ! and didn't need a unit with all the gizmo's. Very smooth purchase and delivery process. Down to earth folks at UPequip they do everything they say they will do for you. Speaking with UPequip you can tell how dedicated the company is about their spider lift equipment. UPequip has always professionally responded. Highly recommended !!

To the tree guys out there I recommend the more robust 87-48 aj than the smaller units. Beats competitors units head to head on specs. Always someone available if you have questions. Extend the life of your old climber or keep employees out of danger in structurally compromised trees. Can access almost anything. These units are evolving and will become a game changer for the arborist community. Spend the money and get ahead of your competitors.

We purchased the 70-36AJ this past winter. We looked around and end up pulling the trigger on the Easy Lift for various reasons. We do lots of work in natural tree stands, along ravine pathways and areas where our Bucket trucks can not access and on trees where our Arborists should not be climbing. The access this allows and the versatility has given us a edge on competitors in our market for these kinds of jobs. We have been very pleased so far with the lift and have had no issues. Drives nice, fits into backyards easily etc. Great purchase.

I Received my 70-36AJ in September of 2016 to use in those hard to reach places and since I had this truck built it has become my main every day lift because it's so easy to move and setup anywhere. The fact that it is completely controlled by switches and relays "absolutely no computer inside" I have been able to diagnose and repair anything myself, but help is just a phone call away when you need it. I included a good photo of a setup we couldn't do with our truck. I have dozens of photo's of strange places this machine has been setup in. We love ours. We do a lot less creative and complicated roping now that we can always reach our work.

Hey guys. I just wanted to say thank you for all your fast and professional help. Additionally, I wanted to tell you how pleased we are with our second 87' lift. I was in the lift for 9 hours yesterday, on a large job removing hazardous ash trees, while working until dark, and the temperature was a high of 10 F. The new lift is such a difference maker. Thanks again, and hope you're all doing well! (Purchased 2 units)

5+ Stars for UP Equip. We purchased a 101-48AJ in the summer of 2019 and couldn't be happier. The EZ Lift is just that, EZ to use and operate and fix as well. We haven't had any big problems at all with it. When we do have questions UP Equip is quick to respond and help. They are available during off hours as well. Parts arrive promptly and are not outrageously expensive. We have used other brands of lifts that are problematic and break down frequently causing down time. That is NOT the case with the EZ Lift. The customer service and communication are excellent. Our tree crews love working with the 101-48AJ so much that we purchased another EZ lift in the fall of 2020. We are getting the 87-48AJ. Our operators find the EZ Lifts simple to operate. They are intuitive and not complicated like other lifts we have owned. EZ Lift is the ONLY lift we will use moving forward. Look no further, the EZ Lifts are the BEST around. Don't delay, if you need a lift order yours today it will make a huge difference with your productivity! Owner of 2 units
