Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts
When utilizing rough terrain scissor lifts, it is really vital to use extra caution and be completely aware of your surroundings so as to maintain safety. The extended booms on the machinery act as levers from the center of the drive unit. Like for instance, a 6 inch bump can cause a 3 foot bounce when the driver is at the driver controls. Take into account all other traffic nearby, since they may not be aware that you are moving. Plan your assent cautiously. Park the boom lift on a flat surface which has no mud or water. These areas cover deep potholes which can be potentially cause the occupants to fall if the tires fell into the holes. If provided, use all of the outriggers, extended to their full extension position. Be sure to just utilize wooden chalk blocks which are approved.
A lot of lifts operate from a metal platform on the end of the boom. The extended booms act as levers from the drive unit's center. A 6-inch bump could lead to a 3-foot bounce while you are at the driver controls. Consider all other traffic. They might not know that you are moving. Plan your assent. Park the boom lift on a flat surface free of any water or mud. These areas could conceal deep potholes wherein the lift tires could fall, tipping the occupants. Extend all outriggers, if provided, fully. Place just approved wooden chalk blocks under the outrigger pads in order to prevent the unit from moving.
Overhead power lines are a serious danger for lift drivers no matter what lift is being used. For instance, if the platform operator is not being aware, or if the platform is being controlled by ground workers that can not accurately access nearness to wiring and hence, either the worker or the platform itself can be easily brought into contact with electrical wires. The employee can be electrocuted unfortunately unless properly insulated.
