Hydraulic Lift/Power Ramp Operation

(Full Size Vans Only)

An operator's manual and video disc are located on the side of the lift. It is recommended that anyone who will operate the lift review this.

Lift Operation Instructions:

  1. Vehicle engine running
  2. Hand brake engaged (located on left side of driver’s seat)
  3. Vehicle in park
  4. Open doors to lift, fastening these using the door straps
  5. Ensure the power switch on the lift is in the upright position
  6. Press FOLD on the hand-held lift control, then UNFOLD. This will release the lift if it has settled during transportation. It is important to do this each time the lift is used.
  7. When deploying the lift for the first several times, you may need to press on the lift with your foot as it reaches the ground, to allow the outer barrier plate to open completely. This is the necessary when an occupant is using the lift.

P Series Transit Bus-Style Door Operation

(P Series Vans Only)

The bi-fold transit doors can be activated using the switch located by the driver’s seat. The doors must be fully open before using the ramp.

The bi-fold transit doors can be activated from the driver’s switch while the van is turned off, however the van cannot be shifted into Drive while the doors are open.

An emergency release lever is located above the bi-fold transit doors. In an emergency, release the lever and open the doors.
