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

A. The cost to hire/rent a scissor lift in Australia ranges between $240 - $550 per day for a 8m all terrain lift, and $800-$2000 for a weekly charge. However these prices are subject to change, depending on the duration of the rental period, size of machine and quality of service. To access higher areas, an 8m electric scissor is recommended for flat, soild ground; otherwise a 12m scissor lift is recommend.

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, however, our scissor lifts and booms above 11 meters require licensing.

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 16m (53ft) 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 includes a safety harness, fall arrestor, inertia reel and safety clips (all of which can be hired from Smart Hire).
