Big Lifter

Model VSL 570

The economical Big-Lifter is similar to Bruno’s popular Curb-Sider®. Stand near the bumper or curb, connect the docking device, push a button and the Big-Lifter lifts a scooter or powerchair into a minivan, van, truck, sports utility or crossover vehicle. Whereas the Curb-Sider automatically rotates and stows your mobility device, the Big-Lifter requires you to manually rotate and guide a scooter or powerchair into your vehicle. Often a caregiver is needed to operate a Big-Lifter.
