Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

It is really essential to utilize extra caution when using a rough terrain scissor lift. Operators must be completely aware of the surrounding environment. Long booms on the equipment act as levers from the center of the drive unit. Like for instance, a 6 inch bump could cause a 3 foot bounce when the driver is at the driver controls. Take into account all other traffic nearby, since they might not know that you are moving. Plan your assent cautiously. Park the boom lift on a flat surface which has no mud or water. These areas cover deep potholes that could be probably cause the occupants to fall if the tires fell into the holes. If provided, use all of the outriggers, completely extended. Be sure to only use wooden chalk blocks which are approved.

Some lifts will operate from the end of the boom on a metal platform. Long booms act levers on the drive unit. While you are at the driver controls, a 6-inch bump could cause a 3-foot bounce. Consider all other traffic. They may not be aware that you are moving. Plan your assent. Park the boom lift on a flat surface free of any mud or water. These areas can cover deep potholes wherein the lift tires could fall, tipping the occupants. Extend all outriggers, if provided, to the full extension position. Place only approved wooden chalk blocks underneath the outrigger pads in order to prevent the unit from moving.

A serious hazard for lift drivers is overhead power lines. This is due regardless of what kind of lift is used. Like for instance, if the platform operator is not being aware, or if the platform is being controlled by employees on the ground that is not able to correctly access proximity to wiring and therefore, either the worker or the platform itself could be easily brought into contact with electrical wires. The worker might be electrocuted unfortunately unless properly insulated.
