RE: The tariff classification of the Hybedlift MH-1000 from Canada

Dear Ms. Williams:

In your letter dated June 7, 1994 on behalf of Atelier Fabrication you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The Hybedlift MH-1000 is a mobile machine designed to allow an individual to raise and tilt a hospital bed. It basically consists of a steel frame, two handwheels, a safety belt complete with harness, and a hydraulic pump, all mounted on a base containing four swivel wheels. Utilizing the unit an individual can manually raise a hospital bed, and then tilt the bed from its normal horizontal position to a vertical position. The bed can then be easily transported about or serviced. The Hybedlift is 48 inches high, 22 inches wide, 22 inches long, and weighs 185 pounds. It has a lifting capacity of 1000 pounds.

The applicable subheading for the Hybedlift MH-1000 will be 8428.90.0090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other lifting, handling, loading or unloading machinery: other machinery: other: other. The rate of duty will be 2 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
