wheelchairliberty's website is responsive and has good product write-ups, not un-wieldy, with both price assurance and authorized seller. I didn't need to look further. It was a pleasure to shop on.
Hoyer Classic is a trusted device in it's class with thoughtful design engineering. I really don't want to attempt saving a couple hundered or paying more for an off-brand little and get surprises. The electric I'm sure will save time - if middle of night lifting is required the extra time of hydraulic would only stretch out a distrought situation.
I saw allot of designs and Hoyer had something others omitted in many parts - the design goes well beyond initial release - it is a matured design from long experience. And HPL402 is actually less than many that have all same specs. I don't want a foldable - my mom can't do that and I hear traveling nurses don't lug along lifts.
