We recently purchased (12/17/2021) and acquired (12/27/2021) the PL400EF Hoyer Lift from Dansons Medical and are quite pleased with the unit. Interestingly enough, the lift quite easy to use and has been holding up quite nicely! We have been using the lift on a daily basis, as my wife suffered a stroke and is unable to walk on her own at this point in time. As we are in our 60's, this has been a saving grace to be able to move her from her bed and into a comfortable adjustable lounge chair. We purchased the unit with the 'free' sling, which is absolutely required when using this device. As of 1/5/2022, we are quite satisfied and pleased with the unit. We have not tried the portability, yet; however, we will be trying once the Winter weather clears! We would highly recommend acquiring this unit if you are in need of a well manufactured Hoyer Lift; which is also portable! Thank you.
