Haulotte Scissor Lifts
Scissor Lifts are specially made for working on projects directly overhead as they are just capable of lifting on a vertical plane. Scissor Lifts are designed of a series of linked and folding supports that crisscross in an "x" pattern. The pressure must be applied to the outside of the lowest set of supports in order for the unit to elevate into the air. This process extends the crossing pattern that vertically propels the unit. If the machine is hydraulically or pneumatically powered, lowering of the platform can be done by easily opening a valve to be able to release the pressure.
There are various scissor lift types. They could vary from indoor models to those types specifically designed for rough terrain that are better suited for different construction operations. The rough terrain models are specifically outfitted with stronger and more dependable tires that run by diesel or gas motors.
4 Mechanical Lifts
Normally, mechanical lifts are smaller models which utilize rack-and-pinion or screw threads symptoms to lift the platform. The mechanical lifts are limited in the amount of weight they can carry and the heights they could extend to. Mostly, these types of lifts are used for maintenance jobs such as indoor applications and changing light bulbs.
In the 1970s, the first scissor lifts were built. Even though various improvements have been made since that time in the categories of materials and safety, the basic original design is still often used. This particular machine became the ideal alternative for many indoor retail establishments which were beginning to expand their inventory. The scissor lift is like the forklift. The scissor lift has become sought after and well-known for its portability as well as its effectiveness. In addition, the scissor lift offers the only industrial platforms that could be retracted and could fit into the corner of the building.
