How to Choose the Best Scissor Lift for a Construction Site?

submitted on 20 December 2021 by easytoolhire.com


A scissor lift is the perfect piece of kit for reaching those hard-to-reach places, safely. A mobile scissor lift gives you the lift you need to work at height without the need to erect scaffolding. Before you Google “scissor lift hire near me”, easyToolhire has a fantastic range of scissor lifts for hire in Scotland, including diesel scissor lifts and electric scissor lift hire, but if you want the best scissor lift for your construction site, what should you look out for? In this blog, we look at how to choose the best scissor lift for a construction site and point out key factors that you need to consider:

Take a look at your site
To get a good idea of the type of scissor lift you need, you need to look at your construction site. What is the nature of the project you are working on? Be honest with your appraisal. Ask yourself: what do I need the scissor lift for? Then go from there.

Check out your platform height
It is very simple to work out the platform height of your mobile scissor lift. The distance between the ground that the scissor lift is standing on and the base of the platform that the operator is standing on is your platform height.

What is my working height?
Before you Google “scissor lift near me”, you need to consider your working height. A scissor lift’s working height is different to its platform height and should be considered as follows – working height refers to where your maximum reach is. It is not the platform height, which is where your feet are. A simpler way to think of your working height is, platform plus the average height of an operator (roughly six feet or two metres). By calculating this figure, you can ascertain your working height and then choose the most suitable scissor lift near you.

Think about your terrain
Are you looking for scissor lift hire because you need to work on a roof, install lighting, or lift heavy items to an area with tricky access? Careful consideration is needed. Think about the terrain. Will you be on level ground or does your construction site have slopes? And what kind of surface will you be travelling on before you get to the area of your site where you want to carry out work? Is the ground smooth? Or does it have holes or obstacles? If the site you are working on is muddy or rocky, consider hiring a mobile scissor lift with wheels that can specifically handle your construction site’s surface.

Weight
How heavy is the item that you wish to lift? It is essential that you know the weight of what you are lifting as you may need to hire a larger mobile scissor lift or diesel scissor lift.

Power source – diesel or electric?
Will you be working inside or outside? Do you need mobile scissor lift hire for working on a project indoors or outdoors? If you are working indoors, you might want to consider electric scissor lift hire. Or if you are working outside, but close to a power supply, then electric scissor lift hire could be a good option for you. If, however, you are working outside then diesel scissor lift hire is the best route. If you are working on rough terrain or are lifting heavier items, diesel scissor lifts will be out to carry out your chosen tasks with more ease. They are designed to take the strain and are more suited to tougher jobs.

Space restrictions
Does the space that you need to access have narrow access? If space is tight then you may need to consider hiring a narrow scissor lift.

Once you have assessed all the above points, you can make an informed choice on the best scissor lift to hire. Narrow down your options by concentrating on platform height, working height and weight. The weight of what you are trying to lift and the height which you need to reach will determine your choice. But once you have these factors nailed, you can decide on the best mobile scissor lift for your construction site.

Safety should always be considered. If in doubt, consult your friendly and knowledgeable tool hire specialist today. Reputable and respectable companies will always be happy to help you choose the best product for your job.
