In recent years, removing accessibility barriers for individuals with mobility challenges has become a frequently discussed topic. RAM has been helping people with mobility challenges for over 30 years and we are proud to continue doing so with our wheelchair lift products.

With a Trus-T-Lift™ home lift, porches, verandahs and upper levels, up to 14ft floor to floor, in homes become accessible for persons in wheelchairs or scooters, or anyone who has trouble walking up and down stairs. RAM has been removing accessibility barriers to improve the lives of thousands of people and families; just check out some of our testimonials.

Want to tell us your story?….we really enjoy hearing stories from people who use our home lifts or elevators, as this is the reason we got in to this business in the first place.

RAM also designs and builds lifts right here in North America. You can rest assured that we are building a quality product that is tailored to the USA and Canada specifically. Find out why RAM is The Most Trusted Name in Wheelchair Home Lifts by letting us help you with your project.

RAM has always believed in continuously improving our products to ensure they are as reliable and competitive as possible. We recently did a major update to the Trus-T-Lift™ to increase its load capacity to 750lb from the previous rating of 550lb. We also took the opportunity to create a whole new drive system for the Trus-T-Lift Home Lift and after rigorous testing we now know it is one of the best designs we have ever been able to provide. See how affordable it can be by letting us help you get a tailored quote today.

If this is all too much to consider, don’t worry, we can help walk you through any questions you may have.

How is the Trus-T-Lift™ 750 Different?

Trus-T-Lift Home Lift

  • Our drive system is based on a technology that will not have a reduced load capacity as your lift ages. Just check out our video on the drive system we use

  • By utilizing an ACME screw design RAM’s wheelchair lift is inherently safe. Some competitors do not even use fundamental safety features that are part of national codes. If you are not sure about a product you just ask one of our specialists and we promise to give you a fair and balanced perspective so you know what you are dealing with.

  • The Trus-T-Lift™ Home Lift comes in modular pieces that are easier to manage for our dealer partners that help can help you with installation and give the assurance that even if there are issue you will have someone nearby to help with any service you might need.

  • Our lifts are some of the quietest products available when installed and adjusted to our specifications.

  • We can do 750lb lifting capacity without hydraulics or expensive and more complex electrical systems due to our optimized drive train

  • Our Lifts are simple – the art of engineering is getting products to be simple. This also leads to improved reliability for you wheelchair lift and very competitive pricing

Dhe Trus-T-Lift™ has a number of unique features that provide significant value.

Soft Touch Paddles – many people who have mobility challenges have a hard time with small push buttons as well. RAM patented our Soft Touch paddle controls that make it easy to know which lever to activate and low effort as well. Even more, the control system makes sure that you can’t damage the motor by pressing them both at the same time and puts a delay in between pressing one and the other to direction… just another little thing we think about for you!

Simple Design – when you look inside a Trus-T-Lift™ there are very few parts. It might seem easy but to get design to be simple, robust, and effective is the art of great products. People like Steve jobs understood this and brought the whole world new perspective about how simple and intuitive takes a great deal of work. We’ve always subscribed to the same type of philosophy at RAM and we hope our efforts can help improve lives.

Geared Belt Drive – not all drive systems are created equal and RAM’s has evolved yet again with the Trus-T-LIft 750 design! We now have a geared belt drive as part of the design and this type of arrangement is what keeps your car engine running so well most of the time. By using a gear belt we also avoid slipping and loss of load carrying capacity. This is quite common in other belt drive, electric motor designs. We also avoid all hydraulics by staying to a purely electro-mechanical system. Check out the video to get a really good understanding of why this is so good.

All Electrical Components at the Top or On Board – in some locations water and other debris can cause significant concerns. By putting the motor, all major electrical connection, bearings, and drive components at the top of our lift tower there is a lower chance of damage during severe weather as long as the platform is in the elevated position. This is not the case with hydraulic solutions and many other competitor products.

Limited or No Pit Required – if you are using a porch lift or a lift that does not require an enclosure/ hoist way/ shaft then RAM provides an automatic toe plate ramp that allows for easy entry and exit from your lift. In cases where you need to enclose the lift for safety code reasons RAM has one of the lowest profile platforms available and this will ensure that you don’t have to put in a large approach ramp or deep pit to get access to your lift.

Indoor and Outdoor Design – RAM is based in a area with some pretty extreme weather and we have designed the Trus-T-Lift™ to handle both indoor and outdoor applications.

Machine Roomless (MRL) – all the equipment for the Trus-T-Lift™ is contained. This means you don’t have to find extra space for hydraulics, or other items in another part of you home or business. This may not sound like an important thing but in high density areas or homes that are looking at a lift as part of a renovation this can be critical.
