Only the sky is the limit

We are proud to present what is probably the largest scissor lift ever built in the world: with a working height of 37.50 m, the PB S370-24ES 4×4 reaches heights that were considered impossible with scissor lifts just a few years ago.

From now on, the PB TOP 24 machines will take you high above the ground.

The TOP 24 series not only sets a new working height benchmark for PB with up to 27 m, but also generally plays a big role in the scissors market. The same applies to the load, at which 1 (!) Ton is cracked for the first time. That not only makes domestic customers sit up and take notice, but …

Perfect for areas of application that do not require extreme working heights, but only offer limited space. Compact, agile, fast – and completely emission-free. So thoroughly ECOnomic.
