Scissor Lifts

Scissor lifts

Scissor lifts are motorized vehicles with platforms that can be moved straight up and down. The lift has a scissor-like appearance because of the criss-crossing metal supports that are used to raise and lower the platform.

Scissor lifts are widely used in construction and manufacturing, and can be used to access high shelves in warehouses, the tops of tall poles and the higher floors of buildings on construction sites.

How does a scissor lift work?

Unlike other access equipment, a scissor lift can only move vertically. The unit is driven into place, and then the railed platform is raised to the desired height.

Scissor lifts normally use a pneumatic or hydraulic actuator to raise and lower the platform.
