Scissor lifts are a type of aerial equipment used to elevate workers and materials to an appropriate working height. They're primarily utilized in facility maintenance and construction applications, and they're typically self-propelled, meaning they can be driven right to different areas on the work site. The machines get their name from their lifting mechanic design, which features crisscrossing metal supports and a platform on top.
Once the machine begins to raise staff or materials upward, these metal supports elongate. When the scissor lift descends, the metal supports fold. Scissor lifts can reach hard to reach locations and provide workers with a stable platform to do their work on. In construction, workers regularly use scissor lifts to assist with cable wiring and inspections. Construction teams also rely on them to lift heavy materials and various tools to elevated areas.Download our company brochure
