Our manual lifts are custom built, manufactured in our London factory and usually available on a four-week delivery schedule.

Low running costs and exceptional reliability make these a popular choice for business owners. Our hand power lifts offer years of trouble-free service and no risk of breakdowns due to power failure.

There are two styles available;

  • Battersea H1, ideal for prepared food and manually operated via rope pulley
  • Battersea H2, ideal for transportation of goods to and from cellars and manually operated by a turn-handle

These hand power lifts can be installed anywhere in the UK by our own experienced engineers, however they are also suitable for installation by a local carpenter. In this instance, the manual lift will be provided complete with detailed drawing and fixing instructions

The Battersea H1 handpower service lift is ideal where small, light goods need to be moved

It is the perfect selection for a small restaurant where food needs to be transported from a kitchen to the restaurant eating area.

The lift is operated by a hauling rope at each level. A gear mechanism located above the lift, counterweight system and automatic brake make it light and easy to operate.

The entrances are at waist level height making it easy to load.
