Portable, versatile lifting devices for field service professionals

Field Service Lifts

Alum-a-Lift is proud to offer the Trav-a-Lift, a portable lifting device that is uniquely suited to the field service and replacement of heavy components. Our equipment can lift and install loads up to 400 lbs to heights of up to six feet.

Lifting is achieved via either a lead screw or winch arrangement, housed in single or dual-stage mast assemblies.

Trav-a-Lifts are equipped with a universal input shaft and removable hand wheel, allowing a load to be raised manually or by using a standard powered hand drill. The Trav-a-lift can also act as a mobile workstation if a technician is performing field repairs.

Lifts Configured to Your Exact Specifications

All Alum-a-Lift solutions are configured for your specific application. Our expert engineers address load capacity, lifting height, reach, floor and overhead obstructions, grated flooring, and other environmental factors.

Easy to Assemble

The Trav-a-Lift can be easily transported, assembled, and used by a single technician. Our lightweight, compact lift can be assembled in minutes without requiring tools.


A Trav-a-Lift’s portability is its defining characteristic. These mobile lifts can be transported in a truck, van, or small passenger car. Hard plastic shipping cases are available, increasing the transportation possibilities. When packaged in its ATA-rated, foam lined, wheeled case, a Trav-a-Lift can be taken as luggage on a plane or shipped by parcel or freight carrier. Trav-a-Lifts deployed at strategically chosen depots can provide global support for your technicians.


Trav-a-Lifts benefit from the vast Alum-a-Lift library of lifting devices and end-effectors, including booms, slings, fork sets, platforms, and roller decks. Like the lift itself, these end-effectors can be easily disassembled and flat packed for transport.

Alum-a-Lift has successfully deployed field service lifts that handle medical components, flat panel LCD and plasma displays, batteries, semiconductor fab tooling, power supplies, pumps, routers, servers, and numerous other devices and products.

“[T]he field folks using these tools are overwhelmed with satisfaction! It seems to be worthy of all the hype!”
