Tips and guides to help you find the right access equipment

Here's some tips and guides on how to find the right access equipment for your job

1. What is a Scissor Lift?

Scissor lifts are motorized vehicles with railed platforms. Commonly found throughout a range of industries in Australia, scissor lifts provide reliable solutions to a number of issues. They’re utilised to access difficult-to-reach places and can be powered by either gas or electricity. iSeekplant has hundreds of scissor lift hire suppliers located across the country.

 

2. What is the right Scissor Lift for my job?

There are two main questions you need to consider when you hire a scissor lift. Those questions are:

  1. How high do I need to reach?
  2. What terrain am I operating the scissor lift on?

By accurately identifying the answers to these questions, you will be able to make a smart hiring decision, saving you both money and time. Gas-powered scissor lifts are typically used in outdoor settings, while electrically-powered scissor lift hire is more suitable for even terrain such as warehouses.

3. Do I need a ticket to operate a Scissor Lift?

Yes, you will likely need to obtain a scissor lift license prior to operation in most Australian states. The Elevated Work Platform (EWP) license is a statement for yourself and your employer to demonstrate that you’ve successfully achieved the necessary level of competence to operate electric scissor lifts, diesel scissor lifts and other elevated work platforms.
