In wider spaces, the compact footprint and zero turn of the Leonardo HD allow for many more units to be present on the jobsite than regular scissor lifts, creating a situation where each operator will be using his own lift, vastly increasing worksite efficiency and cutting time and costs. 

LEONARDO HD not only it provides a safer and more efficient alternative to ladders and scaffoldings, but it will also help coping with new H&S rules, minimizing interactions and ensuring the mandatory distance between workers, still allowing workers to do more by working on their own. 

Efficiency and Versatility

featherweight of only 1170lbs (Indoor only)

new dual Indoor/Outdoor version - unit total weight 1234Lbs

easily driven through doorways, tight spaces and passenger elevators 

dual rollout decks provide outreach at both ends without sacrificing any platform capacity

wheel locking device allows you to drive forward and backward in a straight line when accessing narrow aisles or driving on ramps

wide drive and steer non-marking tires – for reduced ground pressure and increased traction on tough job sites.


drivable at full height, fully loaded and with the platform fully extended, at an automatic slow speed of 0,52 mph: no more exhausting mounting on and off the platform or scaffold to push it into the right position.

unrestricted capacity 397Lbs reduce the need to climb up or down to load material.

built-in tilt sensor, flashing light and audible alarm are all standard features.

The Leonardo HD Drive-able Lift Platform in Action:


by: Balfour Beatty, Midland Metropolitan, Hospital Project


Leonardo HD & Solo-Gyps VS Traditional Scissor Lifts

Flynn Interiors Ltd is a specialist contractor currently installing plasterboard ceiling panels at the MMUH Project in Birmingham. 

The brief 

Seeking a solution which enables the faster installation of plasterboard ceiling panels, while complying with social distancing regulations on the jobsite.Site restrictions have meant that only one operator was allowed on one platform at anytime. 

The solution from Bravi Platforms

Working with hire company Nationwide Platforms, the Leonardo HD was introduced together with the Solo-Gyps drywall attachment. With zero turn,ultra-compact footprint and comfortable extendable dual decks, the Leona rdo HD boasts exceptional maneuverability within a congested building project.The addition of the Solo-Gy ps simplifies the positioning of plasterboard ceiling panels, saving manpower and effectively allowing one operator to lift panels without assistance. 

“Flynn Interiors have found the Leonardo HD to be extremely useful and time saving on site. It is easy to manoeuvre and has exceeded our expectations. We look forward to continuing to use this machine and seeing what else Nationwide has in store." Scott Holland - Project Manager of Flynn Interiors Ltd


  1. Find an alternative solution to save time and resources while installing plasterboard ceiling panels. 
  2. Complying with Health and Safety regulations, avoiding two operators working on the same lift at the same time. 
  3. Increase efficiency and productivity in very tight and congested working spaces.


  1. Reduce the installation time by 50% per panel and with one operator instead of two. (saving £150 per day in labour).
  2. Compliant with social distancing rules enforcing the concept of one operator per platform at anyone time. 
  3. Exceptional maneuverability in tight spaces, no manual handling, 0° turning radius.

Company Overview

Thanks to the inspiration and progress-oriented attitude of the owner and founder Pierino Bravi, Bravi Platforms is a globally recognized and respected aerial lifts manufacturer today, a pioneer of the creation of more efficient and safer methods to work at low heights.

A 40-year journey deeply rooted in the personal history of Pierino Bravi and his over twenty years of experience in the constructions sector. He started out as a Ceiling & Drywall Contractor, installing plaster board partitions and ceilings. By the mid 1980’s it was already one of the biggest Italian companies in this sector. As the installation company expanded, it was necessary to work as quickly and efficiently as possible, without increasing the workforce.

In 1995, Braviisol’s first manlift was designed and built to meet these working requirements, as suitable equipment was not readily available at that time. 

Through hard work, an unflappable optimism and a keen aptitude for innovation, by the 1990’s, Bravi was well established as a manufacturer of vertical lifts, as more and more companies realized these were tailor-made to their needs in the building industry, in the fact that we were first an end-user before we ever started manufacturing machines.

Since day one, 25 years ago Bravi has tenaciously championed the potential of the autonomy of the individual at work and continues to innovate the low-level aerial equipment sector by improving his initial concept and adding other models, following his first intuition “If you give workers the right tools and make them more productive, than everyone will have the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential.”
