    Question Portable Hoyer Lift?

    I'm thinking of getting one as a backup to my ceiling lift. Plus I would need it to travel. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Well, in general I don't recommend Hoyer brand lifts, but the Hoyer Advance (not the Advance-E) is an exception. Folds down for compact storage, and can pretty easily be used for travel. The other option is a Molift Smart 150. Neither is cheap, so shop around or price, and try to find a vendor who will let you try out the actual product.

    Occasionally you can find these for sale used, on eBay or elsewhere. Here is a Molift Smart, for example:

    And a Hoyer Advance:

    I also found this one from Prism: FGA-330 Portable Floor Lift, but have no experience with it. It is very similar to the Hoyer Advance.

    Thanks, It doesn't have to be Hoyer brand I'm just looking for a Sling style life. I use a Horcher Systems ceiling lift now.

    One of the other CareCure members had recommended the Molift 150 to me. It seems to have a compact footprint. Accessories include both soft-shell and hard-shell, rolling carrying cases.

    Haven't purchased it yet, but am still considering.

    I have a Hoyer Advance. We use it for vacations. Works great! Folds up nicely. When traveling we strap it to the drivers seat. It is a little awkward to move around but not to bad.

    We have had a MoLift Smart for about 10 years, great for when we travel as it's a perfect fit in the very back of our Honda Odyssey.and of course the one time our ceiling lift wasn't workinfpg I was glad we had it.

    The Advance-E does not fold up as compactly for travel as the Advance.

    Good lifts, but not designed for travel.
