FAQs

Q?

Which optional extra is required to remove accessibility to the scissor mechanism on the scissor lift platforms?

A.

We are able to fit bellow skirts to all our scissor lift tables except our Economy Range. The bellow skirt provides an enclosure around the scissor mechanism to prevent objects and materials entering under the platform thus reducing damage and/or injury.

Q?

What material are the wheels made from on the mobile scissor lift table range?

A.

They are made from a high quality, impact resistant nylon to allow smooth running performance on even floors.

Q?

How is the EZ Loader setup?

A.

Once you have located your EZ Loader within the working environment safely, you pressurise the pneumatic scissor mechanism by connecting your air supply to the tank valve. Set the EZ Loader adjust knob to Light Weight setting. When connected, you set the air pressure to 60 psi (shown on the air gauge) in the raised position. Place your load on the rotating platform. Now, slowly open the purge valve (releasing air) and close the valve when the required working height is reached. You can adjust the EZ Loader knob to Medium and Heavy for heavier loads.

Q?

What is the most suitable handling equipment to lift goods to a mezzanine floor?

A.

The most suitable handling equipment to raise goods to a mezzanine floor depends on the application in hand. For example, if you need to lift pallets up to a mezzanine floor, a suitable and common option is a pallet stacker. However, if you wish to raise individual boxes or materials, a mezzanine goods lift or scissor lift platform may be more suitable.

Q?

A mezzanine floor is a raised level or platform that is structurally independent from the building or property. Mezzanine flooring is usually supported by steel columns that provide additional floor space for storage or office areas.
