MEC Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

Disadvantages of Utilizing Scissor Lifts
A scissor lift is a specific kind of mobile scaffolding. This wheel-mounted machinery gives power to a work platform that moves up and down. The lift can be powered by propane, electricity, gas or diesel. Scissor lifts are characterized by various scissor-like joints that raise the machine by collapsing and expanding. Many safety features are built into modern scissor lifts, particularly the newer models. As with any safety features, they might not be able to guarantee safety and some features can be overridden by operators manually or they can sometimes malfunction.

Accidental Elevation
Construction workers normally utilize scissor lifts to work at higher heights. Workers could hoist the work platform to just below the ceiling level. The problem with accidental elevation can take place if the workers bump into the elevation controls inadvertently when working. In the ceiling scenario, the controls could be activated accidentally and the platform could rise up and inadvertently crush them into the ceiling.

Employees have to be extremely careful, making sure they are completely aware of their surroundings. This would ensure they don't inadvertently electrocute themselves. If, for instance, the operator accidentally touches or makes direct contact with an electrical conductor or an induction field, tragic consequences could happen.

Lateral Loads
It is important to know the loading limitations while in operation of the scissor lift. These restrictions would be labelled in the scissor lift handbook. Mis-loading the platform could result in really serious consequences. A lateral-load is amongst the potential issues that could take place if the whole lift overturns. This situation happens if a heavy tool or material like a concrete slab that hangs over the scissor lift platform's side, causing the whole machinery to become unbalanced at once and greatly susceptible to dangerously tipping over.
