Designed to eliminate the backbreaking labor of loading and unloading your crew's tools, Vanair® ETL-500 electric tool lift handles up to three pneumatic tools with no problem. With our electric tool lift, your tools are securely transported to the jobsite, where they are safely lifted from the truck to ground level. The ETL-500 eliminates the hassle of a hydraulic system by being powered by the vehicle's battery. Because our actuator has a compact design it is easily incorporated into the frame of the lift, providing more room in the bed of your vehicle.
