Scissor Lift / Man Lift
Your Place for Lift and Construction Equipment
A man-lift is a type of aerial lift that is constructed to lift a person up and down vertically. Safety is the number one factor in utilizing a scissor lift / man lift. It is used in construction to reach high areas for installation or maintenance purposes. For extreme heights, ladders are not an option. Scissor lift / man lifts are usually the only option to safely reach high work areas. All scissor lift / man lifts are equipped with safety rails and emergency shut-off switches to assure worker safety. Scissor lift / man lifts can reach heights that other equipment cannot. Scissor lift / man lifts reach heights of 12' to a height of 53'. The smaller units are small enough to bring inside to lift workers to do finishing work in structures such as hotels, sports arenas, and large office buildings. For inside applications scissor lift / man lifts can be powered by an electric motor which eliminates the hazard of noxious fumes.

Before operating a scissor lift / man lift the operator is REQUIRED to read the safety manual that is located on the unit typically in a hard plastic container.
