Scissor Lift Hire

Scissor Lifts, also known as MEWPs, Personnel Platforms, Hoists, Lifters, and Genie Lifts, take their name from the scissor type mechanism upon which the work platform is mounted. When working directly overhead or needing to lift larger loads these machines are ideal. Their large working platform area enables two or more operatives, tools and materials to be lifted to the job.


  • Large platform area – for men and tools
  • Working heights to 34m

Battery/Electric Scissor Lifts

Battery scissor lifts are idea for indoor use. They have zero emissions, quiet operations and are both compact and manoeuvrable. They charge over night to give a full days operation. With various working heights, machine widths and narrow aisle models.

Choose from the new JLG ES range. These lifts offer quieter energy efficient electric drive motors. On a single charge the electric drive delivers more than double the battery life of hydraulic driven machines. Together with excellent manoeuvrability, smooth proportional drive and lift speeds, they are the best machine on the market.

Diesel/Bi-Fuel Scissor Lifts

Diesel scissor lifts offer the versatility of a direct fuel power unit that can be run for longer periods than battery operated units that will need recharging periodically. Bi-fuel scissor lifts offer a combination of a battery pack for indoor use and a small diesel engine for outdoor use. Easy to switch between power units, they offer total flexibility on site.
