StarTrack’s Custom Farm Seat and Standing Lifts are designed for people who have difficulty ascending or descending steps into farm equipment, construction vehicles, and heavy-duty equipment. A chair lift is for individuals who can transfer from a wheelchair to a chair lift, while a platform lift for individuals who can stand but not climb. This unique handicap technology is primarily developed for farm equipment but can include any application that provides the proper installation criteria, which is not demanding. Many agricultural producers who are affected by spinal cord injuries, neuromuscular impairments, or leg amputations use our lift to gain access to their tractor, combine, or other agricultural equipment. The seat lift operates on a simple swing mechanism for seamless entrance. The installation also includes a 433MHZ wireless remote control forward/reverse key fob with range up to 200 foot.
The lift includes a motor which operates on 12VDC 30amp standard or 24VDC, 36VDC, 48VDC if needed. The lift is powered using a brush PMDC motor on a acme thread rod linear actuator system. It is safer to operate linear actuators when the unit has a static load capacity to hold whatever weight is in place with no back drive. The 8ft track includes a 60" stroke and the 6ft track a 36" stroke. The length can be customized to match nearly any application where each mobility lift can be fully customized to suit individual needs.
While many have built their own lifts or enlisted a local fabricator to design and build one for them, there are problems associated with do-it-yourself methods. In a study of 21 homemade lifts, 38% of the operators reported having fallen from their lifts (Willkomm, 1997). The cost of secondary injuries that result from falls can be significant, where surgery and rehabilitation costs associated with a shoulder injury due to a fall can be as much as $100,000.00 (Seeman, 2000).
