What are Scissor Lifts ?

Hydraulic Scissor Lift Table

A scissor lift is defined as “a surface raised or lowered by the closing or opening of crossed supports pivoted like the two halves of a pair of scissors.”

Scissor lifts are popularly used in a lot of industries to reach high areas of work and also to lift or lower load. It has arms that open and close like scissors to raise and lower the height of the platform that is fixed on the top of the unit. This helps in adjusting the height of the platform according to one’s requirement.

Scissor lift is of three types, namely:

1) Hydraulic Scissor Lift

2) Mechanical Scissor Lift

3) Pneumatic Scissor Lift

The hydraulically powered units are the most popularly used machineries that can withstand huge amount of weight. These use pressurized hydraulic oil that is pumped into the machinery to make it function; that is to extend and contract its arms.These can reach up to great heights. However, care should be taken that such units have railings on the work platform to prevent workers from falling.

A hydraulic scissor lift can be easily fitted with a work platform of the user’s choice. These units can also be fitted with wheels to make moving them from one place to another easier.

The scissor lift platform is lifted upwards from the ground as soon as the arms of the Hydraulic Scissor Lifts are extended. They can reach upto a height of 20 – 60 feet, and can carry a load of upto 10,000 pounds.

The scissor lifts are widely used at construction sites, railway sites, warehouses, godowns and large industries etc. Where there are heavy loads to be lifted from the ground and are to be kept at elevated heights. These machines help in reducing the workload of the workers and can be operated just by clicking a button or pressing the pump with the foot.


Proper care should be taken while functioning the machinery. The point to be remembered always is that the machine is powered by oil. This oil becomes more fluid in summers and so the unit runs a bit faster in this season.

Proper working condidtions should also be maintained for ideal working environment for the machines and the workers. Hence knowledge and experience of handling such equipments and machinery is important.
