Scissor lifts are typical aerial work platforms used indoors or outdoors when mostly vertical movement is needed. Scissor lifts have relatively large platforms which makes them perfectly suitable for use in different types of industries, such as painting and cleaning which require space to move about. All machines come in both diesel and electrically powered models. Diesel powered scissor lifts are typically used in situations that require a larger platform and a bigger lifting capacity. Also, diesel scissor lifts can be used on different kinds of terrain. The electrical scissor lift can easily be deployed both indoors and outdoors.
