6 things you may not know about scissor lifts

When ladders or scaffold towers are inadequate, or you are looking for a more efficient and flexible solution to working at height, scissor lifts are the answer.

How much do you know about scissor lifts? Enfield-based leading plant hire specialists, Mr Plant Hire who offer a wide range of diesel scissor lift options for hire in the London area have outlined here a few things you may not know about them. Did you know…

  1. They can be used across a wide range of applications – from warehousing and retail, to construction, property maintenance and window cleaning, or garden maintenance.
  2. Operators are protected from falls by specially designed railings and harnesses connected to the scissor lift cages.
  3. Scissor lifts usually have four wheels and, in some cases, outriggers to plant into the ground to make it extra secure.
  4. They are quick and easy to set up. Scaffold towers need to be erected before use, but with scissor lifts, you can just drive up, climb on board, lift yourself up and be starting work in seconds.
  5. Scissor lift cages can move while the platform is raised up which gives you manoeuvrability even at full working height.
  6. Their versatility means they can be used in awkward areas including narrow access and on slopes, uneven ground or rough terrain.
