Hire an Electric Scissor Lift Today from APL

Scissor Lifts are aerial work platforms that feature criss-crossing braces that extend upward. Scissor lifts predominately only move up and down however most now feature an extending deck to allow for a bit of increased movement when elevated.

Scissor Lift Pros

  • Larger platform size – Scissor lifts are ideal for jobs when multiple men need to be lifted and still require the ability to move around when in the air.
  • Larger lift capacities – They also tend to have greater lift capacities than boom lifts meaning you can lift more equipment on the deck.

Scissor Lift Cons

  • Lower working heights – Most Scissor lifts tend to have lower working heights than boom lifts.
  • Reduced manoeuvrability – Because they can only move vertically, they cannot be moved up and over obstacles unlike boom lifts

COVID - 19

COVID – 19

Here at APL/APC we are committed to safety and are actively doing our part to reduce the chances of COVID-19 spreading. Whilst we employ a number of these practices anyway, we are taking extra care that all of our staff follow them.

Upon returning to our HQ, each machine is thoroughly cleaned with G101 multi purpose cleaner and extra attention is taken on high risk areas of the machine such as keypads and control boxes using special Biocidal cleaner.

All of our drivers have been given special disinfectant wipes and cleaning supplies to keep their trucks clean and reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

We are also disinfecting our offices daily and have adopted many safeguarding techniques including keeping a 2m distance between any two people at one time.
