What to Consider Before Renting a Scissor Lift

Scissor lifts are not all the same, and choosing the right scissor lift for your project is imperative both for your safety and for the outcome of the project. The following factors should be taken into consideration when choosing a scissor lift.

Lift Weight and Load Capacity: When renting a lift, consider the lift’s weight and load capacity so you can complete your job safely and successfully. It is important to consider the size of your scissor lift when estimating its power. For example, a 32-foot scissor lift can carry 5,900-16,600 pounds, while a 19-foot scissor lift is only capable of carrying 2,700-7,000 pounds.

Job Site Conditions and Terrain: The terrain of your job site, in particular, will determine what type of scissor lift you will need. The heavy-duty scissor lifts suitable for uneven or outdoor terrain may be different from the light electric scissor lifts that can be used indoors and on flat surfaces.
