Scissor Lift Rental

Scissor Lift Rental

Thinking about renting a scissor lift for your fleet of aerial platforms? Scissor lifts are extremely reliable and a great addition to any professional fleet as they allow you to quickly and easily perform jobs at height whilst offering more safety than other means of working at height such as step ladders, towers, or scaffolding.

They also don’t require long set up times, helping you to get the job done more efficiently. If you need to complete repetitive jobs where a straight vertical lift is required, then a scissor lift is the ideal solution. Not only can you reach heights in excess of 30m but they also offer a large amount of platform space and great lifting capacity to allow you to carry multiple workers.

What is a scissor lift?

As the name suggests, scissor lifts use a crisscrossing configuration of tubes powered by  hydraulic cylinders to raise the platform. When raised, the criss-cross effect resembles a pair of scissors and explains the name that we’ve come to refer to them by!

Electric vs Diesel

Scissor lifts are self-propelled machines that can be powered electrically, by diesel, or a hybrid of both. Which power option you choose will largely be dependent on the application.

Diesel powered MEWPs are more suited to external jobs on construction sites as they can offer more power for tackling challenging ground conditions and rough terrain. They are commonly used on industrial job sites including steel erection, building installation, and other construction projects.

Electric powered MEWPs are best used for indoor applications as they offer a low noise and zero emission solution for working at height. Many of the platforms we offer are fitted with non-marking tyres to protect interior flooring when carrying out work and feature a small, compact design so that they can fit through tight doorways and corridors.

Our range of super platforms features lifts from some of the industry’s most established manufacturers such as JLG, Holland, and Dingli.
