Scissor Lifts

The scissor lift or platform lift, is an automated industrial lift that has been adapted to be used in retail, wholesale, manufacturing and production environments. Industrial scissor lifts have been used mostly within production and manufacturing facilities for many decades to efficiently raise and lower materials, people and other equipment. The scissor lift is a platform with wheels that operates like a forklift. It is effective for duties that require the mobility and rate of transporting people and objects into the air.

Scissor lifts can reach anywhere from 6.5 to 18.8 meters or 21 to 62 feet when totally extended. It is not like other models of forklifts that utilize a straight support to hoist its platform, rather it has folding supports directly below the platform that come together to stretch the platform upwards. Offered with either an electric or hydraulic motor, the scissor lift offers a rough ride due to the lift's design that keeps it from roaming with a invariable velocity. Instead, it travels faster in the middle of its journey and slows down with added extension.

The initial scissor lifts were initially built in the 1970's. Great advancements in safety and materials have been prepared since then, but the fundamental model is still used. A relative to the lift truck, the scissor lift became known for its portability and effectiveness, also becoming prevalent as they were the only industrial platforms that could be easily retracted to fit into the corner of a room. They are most oftentimes utilized indoors from warehouses to automotive repair, these equipment function in many different worksites carrying out many unusual jobs.
