Should You Use a Scissor Lift or a Boom Lift?

Should You Use a Scissor Lift or a Boom Lift?
18/02/2020

A lift is one of the safest, most reliable tools for working in small places. They’re easy to move in and out of place. They also provide a stable work platform.

When you hire a lift, you have two choices. Should You Use a Scissor Lift or a Boom Lift?? In order to make the best decision, please consider the following questions.

Will You Need to Place Equipment on Your Lift? If you’ll have cleaning supplies, power tools, painting gear, or other equipment with you, consider a scissor lift. You will have plenty of room to stand, and a platform for your equipment. On the other hand, if you’re simply going up with the items you can fit on your tool belt, you can easily use a boom lift.

Is Cost a Consideration? There are some variances depending on the exact equipment you rent, but scissor lifts are generally less expensive than boom lifts. That’s something to take into consideration when you consider your powered access choices.

How High Will You be Working? Generally, scissor lifts have a height limit of just over 15 meters. Boom lifts can go much higher, in some cases up to 39 or meters. So, if you need to work at a fairly significant height, you’ll definitely need a boom lift.
