Why Use a Scissor Lift?

Scissor lifts are ideal for situations where you won't have to work around obstacles. They're easier to use than scissor lifts and are a great deal safer. One way of thinking of a scissor lift is as an "elevated work platform" since it has railing just like a catwalk or mezzanine.

When Is a Scissor Lift Necessary?

Basically, if you are in a situation in which you need to reach something high and using a scissor lift is a possibility, go with the scissor lift. In all other cases, use a scissor lift. Use a scissor lift when:

  • When trimming trees for a landscape job, use a scissor lift to safely get to places previously unreachable
  • Working in the aviation industry and hanger maintenance requires one to be in many places only accessible by a scissor lift
  • Use a scissor lift for warehouses and stocking.
  • Entertainment jobs may require the use of a scissor lift to set up a stage, lights, and other things related to the logistics of a particular event.
  • Heavy construction jobs are no longer reliant on scaffolding and ladders. Use a scissor lift to get where you need to go instead.
