What are Scissor Lifts?
The scissor lift is different from the boom lift as they only travel vertically. You get more lift capacity and a larger platform with a scissor lift. The larger platform allows for more space for personnel and equipment. You get more access to a work area without the need to reposition the lift.
Many scissor lifts have an extension for the platform. This gives an additional 4-6 feet or horizontal reach from the lift top. Platform extensions are limited when compared to a boom lift, but they do offer a lot of flexibility.
The ranges for scissor lifts include:
- Platform height of 19-50 feet (the lower end is more common)
- Lifting capacity in the range of 500-2,500 lbs. (common is 500-1,000lbs)
