The Oxford Advance folding hoist is an affordable lift that is useful for travel and also for many of those users with ceiling track systems as a backup in the event of outages.
The Oxford Advance is really easy to assemble, weighs 45kg, battery weight 6Kg.
We have this video demonstrating how to assemble the Oxford Advance:
Quick Steps to Assemble
- Have the Oxford Advance positioned in the sitting position
- Pull the elastic strap over the front castors and let it retract into the mast
- Lay the advance down on the floor, castors down. When lower keep hold of the front castors (DO NOT DROP)
- Apply rear castors
- Go to the front of the Advance
- Lift mast & boom until vertical
- Mast must slide into the floor base
- Lock mast with black locking mechanism
- Go to base of the legs and pull the leg locking mechanism out and open the legs as far as possible
- Test the closing and opening of the legs using the leg opening pedals
- Unhook the spreader bar from the secure fixing
- Fit the battery
- Hoist is operational
To fold the Advance hoist reverse the procedure.
Tips & Tricks
- Hoist not operational, won't work? Check the emergency stop button is not pressed in
- How do I know if battery has failed? Click it into the charger, within a few minutes the light goes out! #deadbattery
- How long does a battery take to charge? Approx. 8 Hours
- Should I keep battery on charge? Yes, when it's not in operation, put it on charge, if used in a care environment, we recommend a second battery. When one is operation, there is another charging. Minimises down time
- Service the hoist annually if used as a backup solution
- LOLER service requirements are annual service, 6 months later an inspection and then 6 months later the procedure is repeated
There is no travel bag or case for the Oxford Advance. If you need a travel hoist that requires a case to protect whist flying, you'll need the Molift Smart 150 portable hoist.
