Scissor Lifts – a description

A scissor lift is an item of loading equipment.  They are ideal for lifting and moving loads between different levels where the height difference is less than two metres, such as loading bays and docks.  Many scissor lifts include handrails, hydraulic power pack enclosures and bridging plates for extra safety during operation.

They are commonly used in the warehousing, logistics and distribution industries.

Pickerings Lifts can help you select the right size scissor lift, layout, service and maintenance plan to best suit your requirements.
