Scissor lifts are one of our most in-demand equipment rentals. A scissor lift is a motorized vehicle with a railed platform that can be raised vertically. Criss-crossing metal supports elongate as the platform is raised. However, our electric lifts and personal lifts do not feature the criss-crossed supports, but rather a single vertical segmented shaft. Scissor lifts allow stable and safe mobile access to very high job site areas. They come in a variety of sizes that accommodate both indoor and outdoor use.
