An aerial work platform (AWP) is used to aid workers performing construction tasks at height. A manlift is an aerial work platform that is designed specially to lift a worker safely to the working height. A manlift is also commonly called a personal lift or personnel lift in the industry. Manlifts can be designed differently to be used for a variety of construction purposes. A manlift is useful for many occasions, such as for painting tall walls or ceilings, and washing windows of an office building. There are mainly three types of manlifts, self-propelled manlifts, push-around manlifts, and atrium or belt manlifts. These manlifts have similar features but vary in size and specialization which can be used for different construction purposes.


A self-propelled manlift is a small manlift that can lift a single person to ladder height with more base stability. The height can be adjusted with a collapsible frame. This manlift is small in size thus easy to move about. It is suitable for performing repairs on the ceiling, painting tall walls, and for construction that is small-scaled. On the other hand, a push-around manlift can raise a single worker higher than a self-propelled manlift can reach. It is also larger and has wheels and outrigger legs that provide a stable base. As another option, the atrium manlift or belt manlift is a large manlift with articulating jib which allows moving around obstacles, tank-like drive tracks, and outriggers. These features allow this manlift to be used for outdoor purposes as it can move around uneven surfaces.
