Lifting Platform Equipment Types
There are various factors to consider when you check out a used lifting platform auction or look to buy a lifting equipment, such as the type most appropriate for the tasks you have in mind. Boom lifts are available in straight and articulated models. Straight power lift platforms are used for high reach, unobstructed jobs. Articulated boom lifting platforms can be manoeuvred around various obstacles due to their articulation points. Scissorlifts rise only on the vertical plane, are used only for working directly overhead, and consist of a series of folding 'X' pattern supports that elongate to elevate the lifting platform.
Mechanical lift equipment use either screw threads or a rack and pinion system to rise and are limited in the height they can attain and the amount of weight they can carry. GENIE are the leading manufacturer in this field, offering a wide range of equipment and tremendous reliability. Used lifting equipment from GENIE are plentiful on the market. However JLG scissor lifts are attracting very favourable feedback, whether electric or engine powered.
