When it comes to scissor lifts there are several factors you need to consider before deciding on which machine is best for your particular application. What’s your budget? At what height do you need to work? Will you be working inside, outside or both? Will you have access to a power source to charge the machine? The list is virtually endless.
These are some of the general questions you will want to ask when purchasing or renting a scissor lift. Answers to these questions will help guide you towards the right unit for the job in terms of general specifications, but as with all equipment, additional features beyond height and weight differentiate one scissor brand from another. So, while all scissor lifts may look similar, they are not the same.
Many scissor lift models allow operators to complete a specific task, but how efficiently that task is accomplished, along with the safety, serviceability and durability of the machine will be impacted by the model selected. Add to that any advanced technologies built into the machine and you’ll quickly find there are several differentiating factors among various brands that can impact your return on investment (ROI), so do your research and choose wisely.
