Scissor lifts are a versatile type of aerial lift that can be used for a variety of tasks. They are often used in construction and industrial applications, as well as for maintenance and repair work. Scissor lifts typically have a large platform that can accommodate multiple workers or a large amount of equipment. The platform is raised and lowered using hydraulic cylinders, which give the lift its distinctive “scissor” shape.

Scissor lifts use a system of interlocking supports, or scissors, to raise and lower the platform. The scissors are connected to a hydraulic system that provides the lifting power.


Scissor lifts are available in both electric and diesel-powered models. Electric scissor lifts are typically used indoors, while diesel-powered models are more common for outdoor applications. Scissor lifts can be either self-propelled or towed behind a vehicle. 

Self-propelled models are more common, as they are more manoeuvrable and can be used in a wider range of applications.

There are several different types of scissor lifts, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Rough terrain scissor lifts are designed for use on uneven or unpaved surfaces. They typically have four-wheel drive and larger tires that provide stability and traction on rough terrain. 

Scissor lift training will give you the skills and confidence

Compact scissor lifts are smaller and more lightweight than other models, making them ideal for use in tight spaces. Some scissor lifts also have extendable platforms, which can be helpful when working at heights above 20 feet (6 meters).
