There are various alternatives for access platforms these days. There is a lift designed for practically any jobsite application and business. These self-propelled equipment boost productivity and increase efficiency.
Scissor lifts are made of an assembly of crossed tubes that work in a scissor-like manner to lower and raise a platform. Mostly utilized on firm, level surfaces, these lifts offer access to high places directly over the lift. Scissor lifts are valued for their big decks and their heavy lifting capacities that enable the operator to convey large and heavy tools and supplies. A platform deck extension rolls or slides out to provide a spacious work area.
Scissor lifts vary in size from 6.57-18.15 meters in height and .76 meters-2.29 meters in width. Wider lifts usually have larger deck areas, as well as greater extension capability and lift capacity. The model numbers of the manufacturer could be used to identify the platform height and width of the machine.
For outdoor use, rough-terrain scissor lifts are the ideal option. They are intended to be durable and tough in demanding construction worksites. They have four-wheel drive with efficient lift speed, positive traction control and big platforms. They are commonly used for construction, maintenance and installation.
Electric scissor lifts are the most mobile kinds. They have the advantage of being much less noisy and can fit through standard doorways. They allow maximum workspace for more employees and bigger loads. Their high steering angles and hard-rubber tires ensure excellent maneuverability. Electric scissor lifts are often utilized in indoor applications connected to air conditioning, ventilation and electrical works.
