Aerial lift platforms commonly come in one configuration. Lombardi Lift has created an aerial lift platform that can be configured into an L, U, wrap-around that offers 360° access to a vertical structure, and the conventional platform set up.

The platform can adjust to match an assortment of structure widths and depths and can move vertically up and down a structure.

The set up permits a worker or work team simultaneous access to two or more sides of a structure and reduces the need to re-position the boom lift during the job.

The platform includes most of the features found on a conventional aerial lift platform including a rotating basket or bucket, lanyard attaching points, top rail, mid-rail, gate and kick plate.

The platform also features a ladder for easy egress and ingress and comes with an operator’s manual and all the necessary safety decals, warnings, and instructions mandated by ANSI and CSA standards.

It offers improved and safe accessibility when working elevated jobs. In addition, it combines the maneuverability of an aerial lift, and the adjustability of scaffolding. Work can be performed without need of rotating the platform.

Donald Lombardi, owner of Lombardi & Son Masonry a company that specializes in brick and stone restoration and repair in Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts, designed the product as early as 2007. It has been patented and also has two additional patents from the U.S. and one patent from Canada.

In November 2016 Lombardi and Luke Lombardi, also of Lombardi & Son, demonstrated a prototype for the first time in Waco, Texas. Diversified Product Development, engineering and manufacturing company that specializes in heavy industrial equipment and is located in Waco, Texas, constructed the prototype.

Donald Lombardi noted that in 2017 he would be seeking a company to test the prototype and work with him on its development.

His long-term goal is for the Lombardi lift to replace conventional aerial lift platforms.
