Our Range of Scissor Lifts
We take pride in our diverse range of scissor lifts, designed to meet various project requirements.
Our fleet includes electric scissor lifts, ideal for indoor and quiet operations; tracked scissor lifts, perfect for rough terrains and steep slopes; and all-terrain scissor lifts, designed to perform in challenging outdoor environments.
Electric Scissor Lifts
Electric scissor lifts serve as an efficient elevated work platform (EWP), offering a temporary workspace, especially when operations demand elevation.
These lifts operate on electric motors, which are appreciated for their silent running and zero-emission capabilities. This makes them a perfect fit for indoor applications or in scenarios where noise and air pollution need to be kept at a minimum.
Outfitted with non-marking tyres, these lifts are the go-to solution for projects in shopping centres and indoor spaces and can also be deployed outdoors for various construction tasks on firm, level surfaces.
The defining feature of these lifts is their intersecting metal supports, or ‘scissors’, which expand vertically to raise the platform.
Electric scissor lifts are commonly employed for maintenance jobs, installation assignments, and picking stock in warehouse settings. However, they may not be the best choice for uneven outdoor landscapes or situations that require substantial mobility and adaptability because their movement is primarily restricted to vertical elevation.
All Terrain Scissor Lifts
All-terrain scissor lifts are sturdy aerial platforms engineered to function efficiently on uneven and challenging outdoor terrains. Outfitted with robust, durable tires and often boasting a four-wheel drive, these lifts provide enhanced stability and traction.
They’re usually powered by diesel engines and offer larger platform capacities, making them a fitting choice for construction sites, outdoor events, or any scenario that calls for work at elevated heights under rough conditions.
However, due to their substantial size and noise output, all-terrain scissor lifts might not be the best fit for indoor tasks or in settings where space is at a premium.
Moreover, they may not be the optimal option if the job demands considerable horizontal movement since scissor lifts primarily provide vertical lift.
As with operating any heavy-duty machinery, it’s crucial to adhere to safety procedures when using these lifts strictly. This includes wearing the appropriate safety equipment, ensuring the machine is operated on stable terrain, and staying within the specified weight limit.
Tracked Scissor Lifts
Tracked scissor lifts, sometimes referred to as crawler scissor lifts, are a unique kind of aerial work platform that comes equipped with tracks instead of standard wheels.
These tracks offer enhanced stability and balanced weight distribution, empowering the lift to traverse over uneven, rough, or soft terrains while causing minimal surface disruption.
This makes these tracked scissor lifts an optimal pick for projects situated in challenging outdoor settings like construction sites, woodland areas, or on hilly terrains.
Our scissor lifts come equipped with all mandatory safety features (our fleet is stepped up to a tier one standard) such as anti-slip platforms, guard rails, and emergency stop buttons.
