Hello and welcome to the fully updated HAMER Lifting Systems Website where you can view our range of Manually Operated Lifting Platforms for home, hobby & industrial use.
Standard HAMER Lifting Platform being used for DIY vehicle repairs.
The basic HAMER (or Hand Actuated Manually Elevating Ramp) Lifting System has been steadily developed and refined over the past 10 years to produce a safe, simple, efficient and reliable means by which weights of up to 2.5 tonnes (5500 lbs) can be elevated up to 1.98m (6′ 6″) – for the extended height version, or up to 1.32m (4′ 4″) for the standard version by a series of manual arm movements.

At the recent Sustrans Volunteers weekend in Aviemore, Dunkeld’s Katharine Melville received one of three Appreciation Awards. Xavier Brice, Chief Executive of Sustrans, presented the certificate to Katharine who, along with several other ByCycle members, has worked for many years as a Ranger on the off-road sections of NCN77 and 83 near Dunkeld..
