Scissor Lift Hire FAQs

Your Questions, Answered.

Yes, in the UK, you are required to have a licence to operate a scissor lift. A PAL Card is a Powered Access Licence for operating Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs), Mast Climbing Work Platforms (MCWPs) or Construction Hoists (CHs). The training course is accredited by IPAF (International Powered Access Federation). A licensed operator can also be provided if needed.

Scissor lifts are designed for use on flat and level surfaces. It is generally not recommended to use them on slopes or uneven terrain as it can compromise stability and pose safety risks.

While they may have electrical components designed to withstand rain, they are not intended for operation in extreme weather conditions or submersion in water. It is important to avoid exposing scissor lifts to excessive moisture.

In general, scissor lifts are not designed for road use. They are primarily intended for indoor or controlled environments like construction sites, warehouses, and maintenance facilities. However, there may be specific scissor lift models that are equipped for limited road travel.

Yes, scissor lifts can be used on fragile surfaces such as finished floors or delicate ground, but precautions must be taken to prevent damage. It may be necessary to use protective measures like our protector mats or specialised mats to distribute the weight and minimise the risk of surface damage.

Scissor lifts can be used in confined spaces, but it's essential to consider the dimensions of the space and the manoeuvrability of the scissor lift. Ensure that there is adequate space for safe operation and that the scissor lift is compatible with the specific constraints of the confined area.

Scissor lifts typically have guardrails or handrails as built-in fall protection measures. However, additional fall protection measures like harnesses or personal fall arrest systems may be required in certain situations, such as working at heights above a certain threshold or in specific regulatory environments.
