is a platform which move vertically with the mechanism linked, folding supports in a criss-cross “X” pattern called scissor mechanism. The upward motion is achieved by the application of pressure to the outside of the lowest set of supports, elongating the crossing pattern, and propelling the work platform vertically. The platform may also have an extending deck to allow closer access to the work area, because of the inherent limits of vertical-only movement
Scissor Mechanism work on the principal of:
- lead screw
- rack and pinion
Depending on the power system employed on the lift, it may require no power to enter “descent” mode, but rather a simple release of hydraulic or pneumatic pressure. This is the main reason that these methods of powering the lifts are preferred, as it allows a fail-safe option of returning the platform to the ground by release of a manual valve.
Apart from the height and width variables, there are a few considerations required when choosing a scissor lift. Electric scissor lifts have smaller tyres and can be charged by a standard power point.
