A scissor lift is a type of aerial work platform (AWP) used to elevate workers and equipment to reach high areas. It operates on a set of interlocking, crisscrossed supports that extend vertically, providing a stable platform for lifting.
What Are The Main Types Of Scissor Lifts?
There are primarily two types of scissor lifts: electric scissor lifts and rough terrain scissor lifts. Electric scissor lifts are designed for indoor use and run on electric power, while rough terrain scissor lifts are suitable for outdoor use on uneven or rough surfaces, often powered by diesel or gasoline engines.
