Other Products


Scissor lifts and dock levellers are a common sight in the logistics industry. Scissor lifts come in handy to elevate personnel or materials in a work area. It is a mobile platform that can rise and lower with the help of crisscross beams. The movement of these beams resembles that of a scissor, giving rise to its name. Scissor lifts are perfect for applications requiring a vertical raising and lowering motion.

Areas of application of a scissor lift

A scissor lift, also known as an elevated work platform, serves various purposes both indoors and outdoors.

Indoor utility -

They can:

  • Fix high ceilings in schools, hospitals, hotels, factories, and warehouses.
  • Be used for working on plafond applications.
  • Lift or lower pallets and other heavy objects inside a warehouse.

Outdoor utility -

Their outdoor applicability includes -

  • Maintenance and repair activities - They are used to clean gutters, fix roofs, check AC pipes, etc.
  • Filming and recording outdoor events—Scissor lifts help record outdoor events like music festivals. They make filming from a higher angle possible, providing complete coverage while providing a safe platform.
  • To fix high power lines - They provide a stable podium for the electrician and his tools, a safe option for reaching high places.
  • To install signage - They are handy for installing signage in public places like roads. These could be commercial signage or warning signage for roadblocks, etc.

Choosing a scissor lift

To get the most out of a scissor lift, you must keep the following points in mind:

Altitude - Scissor lifts are available for a wide variety of heights. The height of your project should be the primary deciding factor for buying a scissor lift.

Size of the platform — The type of platform you choose is also a crucial factor. Miscalculation might lead you to get a scissor lift with a smaller or bigger platform.

A small platform will make it easier for the workers to carry the necessary tools, and a bigger platform might not fit your work area. The best solution is to opt for a scissor lift with an expandable platform.

Location of working space — The scissor lift you use will depend upon the location of your work. If you are working indoors, your scissor lift should have no emissions and not leave tyre marks in the area of the project

Your needs will change if your work area is outdoors and has rough terrain. You might have to opt for a four-wheel drive option for smoother, jerk-free work output.

Load capacity — This is yet another critical consideration. Your scissor lift must be heavy-duty for projects involving many tools and workers.

Nature of work - Your work will be the final deciding factor. For working on ceilings, your scissor lift will have to be one that can reach heights. If your working area is a warehouse, you will choose agility to move through narrow aisles. Here, height will not be a point of consideration.
