EWPs for Hire
EWP stands for Elevating Work Platform, and they can be trailer mounted (and towable) truck mounted, or self-propelled. We have a range of Perth EWPs for hire, including spider lifts, boom lifts, scissor lifts and more, and the type you choose will depend on the terrain and stability of the ground. A ground assessment should be made to determine the best EWP for the job, so you can examine if there are poor wind conditions, underground services, soft ground, ground cavities, or sloping surfaces. EWPs is often used by firefighters, to gain emergency access, and for a variety of different tasks within the construction industry. Most EWPS are used to lift less than a tonne and some allow the use of power tools with connectors for compressed air or electricity. Worker safety is a priority, which is why Brisbane EWPs for hire have safety and guard rails set up around the platform, to reduce the risk of workplace accidents.
Scissor Lifts for Hire
Scissor lifts are a type of elevating work platform, and you’ll find plenty of scissor lifts for hire in Sydney and elsewhere in Australia on our website. These are incredibly mobile machines, and yet still have a sturdy platform for operators and railings to ensure safety. Scissor lifts get their name from the supports which look like crisscrossed, connecting scissors once they’re elevated, and these are versatile machines which can be used both in and outdoors. There are a number of scissor lifts for hire in Darwin, and on the iSeekplant database you’ll find mobile, easily manoeuvrable scissor lifts to increase productivity and safety. Scissor lifts can be powered in a number of different ways, including with a pneumatic or hydraulic system (generally considered to be safer as operators can easily release pressure to descend back to the ground), and mechanical operation system (usually with a rack system and sometimes with a pinion). You can also choose the best scissor lift for your project based on the weight you need to lift and whether you will be using it inside or outdoors.
EWPs and scissor lifts are much safer and mobile compared to ladders or small scaffolding, so if you’re looking for equipment for your next project, take a look at the extensive rental listings on the iSeekplant database.
