Scissor lifts are predominantly designed to safely reach working areas at height in confined spaces. Specifically, 19-ft electric scissor lifts are designed to be able to pass through a standard doorway, are easy to maneuver, have a good lifting capacity for taking materials to appropriate work heights and usually have an extendable platform to reach out over obstacles. They are also easily transported on lightweight trailers and vehicles. In fact, 19-ft scissors are the most popular size.
Measuring 30 in. wide, the Snorkel S3019E electric scissor lift was introduced in response to the new ANSI A92 standards, and features a patented, industry-first design in which the scissor stack stows entirely inside the chassis. This delivers a low stowed height, to pass through standard doorways without the need for the folding guardrails, and delivers a low step-in height that reduces the risk of trips or falls when accessing the platform, and reduces operator fatigue. The S3019E features electric drive and steering, eliminating hydraulic hoses and the risk of leaks in sensitive areas. For more info, visit snorkellifts.com.
