Tips For Purchasing A Scissor Lift
If you are not ready to pick up the phone just yet, take a look at our handy guide below to get you moving in the right direction to purchase your next scissor lift:
Choosing the right height
The listed heights of scissor lifts (19 foot for example) is where the operators feet will go, so you will need to add roughly 5 feet to the listed height to determine how high you will be able to operate. It is always important to make sure that your lift can handle the whole range of jobs your workplace may require, so we recommend getting a scissor lift a few feet larger than you anticipate.
How much do you need to budget?
If you absolutely need a new scissor lift, you will need to budget $15,000 to $28,000 for a smaller lift, and $30,000 to $50,000 for a larger or rough terrain scissor lift. If your budget is tight, a used scissor lift will save you at least 50% on a model 3 years old or more. Note- when buying a used scissor lift we recommend working with authorized manufacturer dealers who are trained to fully refurbish used lifts, compared to individual owners where it is more difficult to determine the quality of lift you are getting.
Selecting a manufacturer
When it comes to selecting a scissor lift manufacturer, you will be weighing cost vs. reliability in general. The top brands like JLG, Genie, Aichi and others consistently produce equipment that will last for years under any work conditions. Smaller manufacturers have a tough time matching the design and manufacturing quality, but they do offer more compelling scissor lift prices (particularly on new lifts).
