Classic Deluxe Power Lifter
With an adjustable U-base, a reverse-mounted actuator, and a 6-point cradle, the Deluxe Power Lifter offers smooth, quiet transfer in one package.
The directions were hard to understand.
The directions and screws that were enclosed were both difficult.

87, 200 pounds and I cannot walk.
Study, reliable piece of equipment.

I am a 54 year old male who is a paraplegic. I also have weak right arm and diminished lung capacity due to a car crash.
Correct sling is key to proper use.
Design is great. Instructions to put together were less then weak.
Instructions to put together were not clear or well explained.

Good balance, smooth lift, easy wheel locks, easy to guide patient
The extension cord connection to the lift is too delicate. It is always coming out of lift.

Classic Deluxe Power Lifter: Review
Battery charge wires become disconnected easily

Electric is the way to go!
Very smooth movement both when pushing around and for the patient going up and down
Charging cord is very short and if your patient is tall when the arm is fully extended the patient is very close to the main support. We don't have to ever raise it that high but just thought you'd like to know

Good product. Wish we had ordered one with weight scale.
Ease of operation.
Slings are tricky to figure out at first. Need more instruction perhaps to indicate best strap position for seated position.

Physical disability associated with surgery. As a bilateral bk amputee, sternum precautions following open heart surgery limit mobility.
Great for the price!
The easy use of the product and the price of the product in comparison to the same product offered by other companies.

The product makes it easy to move my husband to his wheelchair.
It does what it is supposed to, very well.
Good strong steel components. Well designed slings. Base expands from 24" to 36" or so - can reach outside wheel chair or toilet and be closed up to go through narrow doorways. Very stable even when closed up with 200# person in the sling. Large wheels so it rolls well on carpet. Can go low enough to lift a patient lying flat on the floor and raise them high enough to place on any bed - well, perhaps not the upper bunk bed, but any reasonable bed. Once you get around the poor user manual, the system is very easy to use and maintain.
The battery charger has a clip on the bottom front edge that clips to the main post of the lift. The battery has a clip on the front top edge to clip to the main post of the lift and sits on top of the charger. There really isn't anything to hold them together, so they immediately fold like a '>' symbol, then the clips let them fall out. An 'Ace' bandage wrapped a few turns around the battery / charger junction and the main lift post will solve the problem. The owner / user manual sucks. It's awful and surely results in a huge number of phone calls to Hoyer's or Spinlife's service departments. I am considering writing an owner's manual for it and then submitting it to Hoyer.
