Diesel Scissor Lifts

Outdoor Scissor Lifts (Diesel, All Terrain)

Diesel Scissor Lifts are generally used outdoors. They are large, robust and can tackle even the roughest of terrain. They have individual self-levelling ‘riggers feet’ to ensure a stable & safe working platform.

There is a wide range of sizes available and typically can get much higher than an Electric Scissor Lift whilst having a higher weight capacity. Perfect for the likes of Solar Panel, Roof Sheets and other high-level works.

About Diesel Scissor Lifts

Diesel scissor lifts are more heavy duty than their electric counterparts with higher lifting capacity and maximum height limits for the same footprint which matters in constricted work sites. However, they are also generally larger to allow for four wheel drive and larger platforms for more rugged and heavy duty access equipment applications. Typically they are used outside and in rough terrain whereas electric scissor access lifts are better suited for indoor use.

In general, scissor lifts are a type of MEWP (mobile elevated work platform) aka AWP (aerial work platform). The raising mechanism consists of a series of support struts linked in a pantograph arrangement. Imagine a number of pairs of scissors with blade tip linked to handle and you’ll have an idea of how it works – and that of course is how it gets its name.
