Scissor Lifts FAQ

Electric scissor lifts operate using a series of linked, folding supports in a criss-cross ‘X’ pattern. This mechanism is known as a pantograph. When the pantograph extends, the lift rises vertically, allowing operators to reach higher areas safely. These lifts are typically powered by electric batteries, making them suitable for indoor use due to their low emissions.

Yes, scissor lifts are designed for ease of use. They come with straightforward controls for manoeuvring and lifting. However, proper training and familiarisation with the specific model’s controls and safety features are essential for safe operation.

Low-Level Access Lifts: Ideal for indoor settings, low-level access lifts are compact and maneuverable, making them perfect for tasks in confined spaces and for jobs up to a certain height.

Electric Scissor Lifts: These are suited for indoor use or smooth outdoor surfaces. They operate quietly, have zero emissions, and are typically used for maintenance and installation work in sensitive environments.

Diesel Scissor Lifts: Designed for outdoor use, diesel scissor lifts handle rougher terrain and have a higher lift capacity. They are ideal for construction sites and large-scale outdoor projects.

Each type has its specific advantages, depending on the job requirements and environment.
