Do Twice the Work

The Wave Work Assist Vehicle is a revolutionary, mobile productivity tool that allows one person to safely and efficiently accomplish the work of two, traveling twice as fast as the average walking speed.

  • Reach working heights of up to 17 feet supported by a four-point safety system

  • Travel up to five miles per hour to reduce downtime between worksites

  • Simultaneously elevate operator and load for smoother, more efficient workflows

  • Maneuver through tight aisles and doorways as narrow as 32 inches

Safety at Every Turn  

Access 1 2 3, the Wave's built-in system of protection and control, starts the moment the operator turns the key switch. The system coordinates a functional display, manages lift and lower options and controls travel speeds, steering and braking.

The Wave's four-point safety system provides enhanced operator control and safety.

Interlocking gates must be closed to raise or lower above 20 inches.

Safety sensors below the platform disable raise, lower and travel if someone or something applies pressure to the motor cover located below the platform.

Wave series platform sensors

Hand sensors ensure the operator has both hands on the controls for normal travel and lift functions.

Dual foot pedals include sensors to ensure the operator has both feet properly positioned on the platform. The Wave automatically stops travel and lift/lower functions if either foot is removed.
