Q1.How much does it cost to rent an electric scissor lift?

A. The cost of hiring an electric scissor life can vary depending on its size, quality and duration of the hire. In Australia, the daily rate for an 8m scissor lift can range between $170- $400 per day, with weekly prices varying from $550- $1000. For a smaller lift, a 6m Scissor lift is recommended, and an 8m all-terrain scissor lift is recommended for job sights in which the ground is unstable/ unequal. 

Q2. Do I need any licensing/ certification to use a scissor lift?

A. According to WorkSafe, a high-risk work license for EWPs (elevated work platforms) is not required for any piece of machinery with operating work platforms of less than 11m from the base level (ground). Therefore all 6m and 8m & 10m scissor lifts & booms can be used by the open public.

Q3. How high does a scissor lift go?

A. The height of a scissor lift is dependent on which machine you hire, with that being said, machinery sizes range from ground level (0m) to the highest being around 14m (40ft) platform height. The most popular sizes are 6m and 8m lifts.

Q4.What's the difference between a scissor lift and a boom lift?

A.There are two distinct types of access platforms, usually called scissor lifts and boom lifts (or sometimes cherry pickers). The difference between the two is that a scissor lift can usually only move vertically, whereas a boom lift has an outreach, to work above areas not accessible from directly below.

Q5. Is there any safety equipment required for a scissor lift?

A. Generally speaking fall protection is advised for any heights above 1.8m (6ft) off the ground, protections of this nature include a safety harness, fall arrestor, inertia reel and safety clips (all of which can be hired from Smart Hire).
