Scissor Lift Hire

Scissor Lift Hire: Enhance Your Productivity & Safety

Scissor lifts are vital in providing safe and efficient work platforms across various industries, facilitating tasks from construction to facility maintenance. Opting for scissor lift hire offers economic flexibility, and tailored equipment selection for specific job requirements, and avoids the long-term commitments of maintenance and storage associated with owning such machinery.

Why Hire a Scissor Lift?

Hiring a scissor lift instead of purchasing one offers significant financial advantages, especially for short-term or varying project needs. It allows for the use of the appropriate lift for specific tasks without the overhead of maintenance costs and depreciation. Additionally, rental services often provide the latest models, ensuring access to the best technology and compliance with current safety standards.

Advantages of Using Scissor Lifts

The primary benefit of scissor lifts is their ability to provide a stable and secure platform for workers performing tasks at height. This stability is crucial for safety, reducing the risk of falls and injuries. Scissor lifts are also versatile, able to maneuver into tight spaces where scaffolding or ladders might not be practical, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor projects.

Electric Scissor Lifts

Electric scissor lift hire is ideal for indoor applications or environments where noise and emissions must be kept to a minimum, such as shopping malls, schools, and hospitals. They feature non-marking tyres to protect flooring and are capable of fitting through standard doorways. With platform heights ranging from four metres to twelve metres in length, electric scissor lifts accommodate ceiling work, electrical installations, and routine maintenance tasks.

Diesel Scissor Lifts

For outdoor projects, especially those on uneven terrain or in less controlled environments, diesel scissor lift hire is preferred. These lifts provide the power needed to navigate rugged conditions and offer higher lift capacities, ranging from six metres up to sixteen metres in length. Their robust nature makes them suitable for construction sites, landscape projects, and any situation where electric models might not perform as effectively.

Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

Rough terrain scissor lifts are equipped to handle the most challenging outdoor conditions with features like four-wheel drive and increased ground clearance. They are designed to ensure stability on muddy, sandy, or uneven grounds, making them indispensable for construction and industrial applications where other types of lifts might struggle.

In New South Wales, you do not need a specific license to operate most scissor lifts (those under 11 meters in working height). However, it is recommended that operators undergo training to ensure safe operation of the equipment. For scissor lifts that exceed 11 meters in working height, a High-Risk Work Licence (WP class) is required.
