Planet Lift Chairs - The Maximum

The Maximum group only contains one chair, the Mercury. This is truly the high end of the spectrum of Planet chairs that contains all the features of the previous groups but also includes heat and massage and genuine leather upholstery.

The Mercury is available with dark brown and tan leather upholstery. As I understand it, black leather will be added to the upholstery choices in 2016.

Features common to all the chairs

  • Lounger style that fully supports the legs (no gap between footrest and seat)
  • Easy to use hand control
  • Maximum seat elevation with superb stability in full lift position
  • Wide construction provides greater side to side stability
  • High Quality steel base for durability and cross supports
  • Engineered bushings and washers at pivot points provide quiet smooth operation and durability
  • Direct drive activation synchronizes right and left sides for easy opening
  • Low voltage motor, 24 volt, UL approved
  • Battery backup
  • Infinite Position
  • 4 Locking casters included
  • The spring assisted footrest to minimize injury or damage to anything it contacts when lowering
