After the pioneering Bluelift B72 changed the global market for compact lifts, the Bluelift B85 took the concept to the next level, – 85 ft. to be precise. Based on the same system, utilizing the genius combination between articulating lower arms, telescoping upper arm and a jib, the Bluelift B85 remains a very compact unit, yet offering an impressive 85 ft. vertical height and more than 47 ft side reach. Important standard features were carried over from the Bluelift B72 including most compact lift in its class, adjustable tracks, multiple-position outriggers with knee-joints and side reach in narrow outrigger position. And, like most Bluelift units, offered in 3 power versions:

  • Standard with the choice of either a Honda gas or Hatz diesel engine
  • Lithium Only offering an all-electric battery unit
  • COMBO offering both the choice of combustion engine and the Lithium Battery pack.

The Bluelift B85 comes standard with two identical control panels: The wireless remote allows the operator optimal drive view to position the unit safely. The wired control panel in the basket eliminates the need for swapping control boxes, and also serves as back-up should the wireless remote control be lost or malfunction. Thanks to it is reliable CAN bus steering system the Bluelift B85 offers an unsurpassed range of safety and comfort features from auto start-and-stop of the engine, automatic turret center stop to incline alarms & detection and variable speed.

The Bluelift B85 COMBO to this day remains a daily work horse in rental fleets around the world, offering unmatched value for money. And more importantly: Ultimate safety.
