An Important Guide To Scissor Lift Purchasing Factors

Posted on

aichi scissor lift group inside warehouse black and whiteWhat is a scissor lift? A motorized vehicle with a railed platform that can be raised straight up is known as a scissor lift. Cris-crossing metal supports that elongate as the platform is raised are the basic feature of scissor lifts that distinguishes them visually from other equipment used to work in higher elevations.

According to a study published by Global Market Insights in February 2018, the rental market for aerial work platforms is expected to reach $24 billion by the year 2024 (up from around $15 billion in 2016). This sharp increase in demand is largely attributable to the booming construction industry with scissor lifts seeing the largest increase in equipment demand.

And it makes sense. Scissor lifts are practical, inherently safer than using a ladder, and they’re a more economical solution than many other powered types of equipment.

This guide will help you understand these factors and make a better, more informed decision when it comes to the type of equipment you want on the job site. Continue reading
