There are numerous options for access platforms these days. There is a lift designed for practically any business and jobsite use. These self-propelled machinery increase efficiency and boost productivity.
Scissor lifts are constructed of an assembly of crossed tubes which work in a scissor-like manner to lower and raise a platform. Generally used on surfaces that are firm and level, these lifts provide access to high areas directly over the lift. Scissor lifts are valued for their heavy lifting capacities and their large decks that enable the operator to convey heavy and big tools and supplies. A platform deck extension rolls or slides out to provide a spacious work area.
Scissor lifts range in size from 6.57-18.15 meters in height and .76 meters-2.29 meters in width. Wider lifts usually have bigger deck areas, as well as greater lift capacity and extension capability. The manufacturer's model numbers could be utilized to identify the height of the platform and machine width.
The best choice for outdoor use is the rough-terrain scissor lift. They are designed to be tough and durable in demanding construction worksites. They have four-wheel drive with big platforms, efficient lift speed and positive traction control. They are commonly utilized for construction, maintenance and installation.

They allow maximum workspace for more employees and larger loads. Their high steering angles and hard-rubber tires guarantee excellent maneuverability. Electric scissor lifts are usually utilized in indoor applications related to electrical works, air conditioning and ventilation.
