Each model features quiet, emission-free operation that makes them ideal for sensitive work environments and areas with heavy personnel density. Some models also feature up to 25% gradeability and higher clearance, making them suitable for outdoor environments in addition to indoor spaces. Electric scissor lifts can be outfitted with solid non-marking tires or foam-filled tires based on your job site.
For outdoor applications on difficult surfaces, look no further than a rough-terrain scissor lift. These units feature large rough terrain tires, extended ground clearance, and up to 45% gradeability. Many models also feature 4-wheel drive and outriggers for enhanced handling and stability on mud, gravel, and other demanding terrain. This allows for vertical access in areas that other scissor lifts wouldn’t be able to reach.

Also known as aerial work platforms and aerial lifts, scissor lifts are a popular choice for aerial access. Their simple design and operation make them a great option for both indoor and outdoor use. With models that can fit through a standard doorway and units with large platforms and outriggers, there’s a scissor lift for every application. Many scissor lifts also feature extendable platforms to allow for additional personnel and tools. This allows you to optimize productivity without compromising safety.
The first scissor lift was constructed in 1963. The original design is largely similar to the designs used in current models, albeit with several refinements. Some examples of these refinements are extendable platforms, multiple steering modes, and outriggers for enhanced stability. Scissor lifts are identifiable by their “X-shaped” lifting mechanism, flat platforms, and entirely vertical lifting operation. Some modern models feature track-style tires instead of conventional wheels, though these units are not regularly employed in most environments.
As aerial lifts increased in lift height capabilities, so did the safety risks. As a result, fall protection equipment became mandatory, and manufacturers created numerous emergency safety features. Examples of these are emergency stop buttons, foot pedals that must be pressed for operation, and powerless descent capabilities in the event of a fuel shortage. With these modern features, scissor lifts offer exceptional vertical access capabilities with a reduced risk of operator harm. Today, scissor lifts are one of the most widely utilized pieces of equipment on job sites around the world.
