Haulotte Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts
Industrial lifts have traditionally been used in production and manufacturing environments to help raise and lower supplies, workers, and merchandise. The scissor lift, also called a table lift, is an industrial lift that has been modified for wholesale and retail settings.
Most clients, who have been in a store late at night, shopping the aisles, have probably seen one, even if they did not know what it was. Essentially, the scissor lift is a platform with wheels that acts like a forklift. In a non-industrial environment, the scissor lift is great for performing tasks that require the speed or mobility and transporting of individuals and materials above ground level.
The scissor lift is a unique machine in that it does not use a straight support in order to raise workers into the air. Instead, the scissor lift platform rises when the linked and folding supports beneath it draw together, making the machinery stretch upward. When the machine is extended, the scissor lift reaches approximately from 6.4 to 18.8 meters or 21 to 62 feet above ground. This depends on the size of the unit and the purpose.
The rough terrain scissor lifts could either be powered by hydraulics or by an electric motor, although, it can be a bumpy ride for the employee inside the lift going to the top. The scissor lift design keeps it from traveling with a constant velocity, rather than traveling slower with more extension or traveling faster during the middle of its journey.
The RT of rough terrain style of scissor lift are a very common style of lift. RT models will typically feature increased power of the IC or internal combustion engine. The variations come in petrol, gas, combinations or diesel. This is needed to handle the increased weights and steeper grades of 18 to 22 degrees that are usually associated with this particular class of scissor lift.
