This mobile elevating work platform is popular because it is available in various sizes, variations, and configurations. In this post, we’ll take a look at what the JLG 3246 Electrical Scissor Lift can offer, and whether it would be suitable for your scissor lift hire needs.
The biggest difference between the JLG 3246 Electrical Scissor Lift and others of its kind, is that it isn’t powered by diesel, but rather relies on battery power. This makes it an environmentally friendly option that can be used in confined spaces such as loading bays, or indoors in places like warehouses and storage facilities, as the engine won’t emit any noise or fumes while it is in use.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that this means that it can’t deliver on performance. The JLG 3246 Electrical Scissor Lift offers reduced charging times so it can run for longer, and has 200% more battery life than most other electric cherry pickers.
With an elevated platform height of 9.68 m, this lift is well suited to jobs occurring at a height where access is needed from below. With a lift time of 55 seconds and lower time of 62 seconds, it wastes no time getting to work.
The JLG 3246 Electrical Scissor Lift has a platform size of 1.12 m x 2.50 m, and a deck extension of 1.27 m, with an unrestricted platform capacity of up to 320 kg. This means it can easily lift workers and equipment into the air and provide them a stable high capacity work platform.
The fact that the JLG 3246 Electrical Scissor Lift is mechanical, will work in your favour, whether you’re seeking to hire a cherry picker or investing in one. Its electrical drive and integrated components have been engineered to require less hydraulic oils, seeing as it only has two hoses and four fittings. This means it’s less likely to give you trouble on the job (even after prolonged use) and will cost less by requiring less servicing.
