Rideable Material Lift- Ride With Your Cargo & Freight

RiderLift™ – Rideable Material Lift! 

Wildeck now has a material lift available that safely allows passengers to ride along with their cargo, man on board.

Welcome to the new and very affordable RiderLift™. This RML (rideable material lift) allows authorized personnel to safely travel between levels with their material at a fraction of the cost of an elevator installation. Wildeck is one of the first material handling equipment manufacturers in the U.S. to offer a type B rideable material lift.


The new RiderLift™ RML can offer many valuable benefits for your operation:

  • Increased material handling efficiency
  • Time Savings
  • Increased security by having workers ride with their material
  • Improves safety and reduces lost time from accidents. Employees will no longer carry boxes up or down stairs!
  • This lift enhances the utilization of your facility capacity
  • More affordable and easier to install than a passenger or freight elevator.
