This is your scissor lift for the real heavy stuff you need to move, and move efficiently and safely. It has a speed of about 7km/h, which means its quick and therefore going to save you time and money.

The diesel scissor lift is generally used for outside work.

Electric Scissor Lift

These scissor lifts are used mainly indoors, in places such as warehouses, malls and even wholesale supermarkets.

What makes the electric scissor lift even more of a keeper is its width. It has a small width, able to go from aisle to aisle in warehouses without disturbing anything. More than this, it’s completely silent because it’s run by electricity and not diesel. When you purchase an electric scissor lift, you’ll also be doing your part for the environment since there are no fumes whatsoever.
