A rough-terrain scissor life is like a traditional scissor lift, but they're built specifically for outdoor use on uneven surfaces. The main difference is their reinforced tires and four-wheel drive capability. Most rough-terrain scissor lifts are also powered by diesel instead of batteries. In this article, we're going to take a closer look at what rough-terrain scissor lifts can do, and why you'd want to rent one for your next project.
What can a Rough-Terrain Scissor Lift Do?
Like other scissor lifts, all-terrain lifts are vertical. This means their arm only goes up. They can reach heights of up to 60 feet, and offer a large platform that can accommodate multiple workers with plenty of space between each worker. Some manufacturers, like Genie, include a slide-out extension deck to create an even larger work area for crews. These machines can carry over 2,000 lbs. so you can lift more equipment and workers and get the job done faster.
Many all-terrain scissor lifts often include the following features for added safety:
- Manual Lowering
- Motion, tilt and descent alarm
- Lanyard attachment points
- Self-closing gats
A variety of accessories are also available for rough-terrain scissor lift rentals, including:
- Extension decks for more space
- Light kits
- Leveling jacks
- Non-marking tires

More companies are choosing to rent rough-terrain scissor lifts to avoid their steep purchase price, storage, transportation, and maintenance costs.
