There are many options for access platforms today. There is a lift designed for virtually any business and jobsite application. These self-propelled machines boost productivity and increase efficiency.
To be able to raise and lower a platform, scissor lifts are constructed of an assembly of crossed tubes that work like scissors. Commonly utilized on surfaces which are firm and level, these lifts offer access to high areas directly over the lift. Scissor lifts are valued for their large decks and their heavy lifting capacities which permit the operator to transport huge and heavy materials and tools. A platform deck extension rolls or slides out to provide a spacious work area.
Scissor lifts vary in size from .76 meters-2.29 meters in width and 6.57-18.15 meters in height. Wider lifts tend to have larger deck areas, as well as greater lift capacity and extension capability. The model numbers of the maker can be used to identify the platform height and machine width.
For outdoor use, rough-terrain scissor lifts are the ideal option. They are designed to be tough and durable in demanding construction worksites. They have four-wheel drive with efficient lift speed, positive traction control and large platforms. They are commonly utilized 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 larger loads and more employees. Their hard-rubber tires and high steering angles ensure superb maneuverability. Electric scissor lifts are usually utilized in indoor applications connected to air conditioning, ventilation and electrical works.
