What are scissor lifts?

Scissor lifts, also known as personnel platforms, hoists, lifters, and genie lifts, consist of a large platform area raised by a scissor-like mechanism – hence the name. This criss-cross pantograph allows the scissor life to extend to great heights in a safe and secure way.

The vast vertical work platform can fit two or more operatives at any one time and also provides ample space for transporting loads and tools in one go.

What are scissor lifts used for?

Scissor lifts are used to provide elevated work areas or for raising or lowering loads with ease. Great for accessing difficult to reach areas, scissor lifts are a versatile piece of equipment suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Scissor lifts have less reach than cherry pickers, but can handle heavier loads. Certain models extend as high as 60 feet and can handle any application that would usually require scaffolding or ladders. This makes them highly useful in construction, logistics, and many other industries.

Where access to great heights is not necessary for the job at hand, scissor lifts are a great and affordable choice where multiple personnel or goods need to be elevated or lowered.

Remember to assess your work environment to understand its requirements before investing in a scissor lift, including the terrain, the emissions tolerance, and the needed reach.
