Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

It is important to use extra care when utilizing a rough terrain scissor lift. Drivers should be fully aware of the surrounding environment. Long booms on the equipment act as levers from the center of the drive unit. For example, a 6 inch bump could lead to a 3 foot bounce when the operator is at the driver controls. Consider all other traffic nearby, as they may not know that you are moving. Plan your assent carefully. Park the boom lift on a flat surface which has no water or mud. These areas cover deep potholes which could be probably cause the occupants to fall if the tires fell into the holes. If provided, utilize all of the outriggers, completely extended. Be sure to only use approved wooden chalk blocks.

Some lifts will operate from the end of the boom on a metal platform. Long booms act levers on the drive unit. While you are at the driver controls, a 6-inch bump can cause a 3-foot bounce. Be aware of all other traffic. They might not be aware that you are moving. Plan your assent. Park the boom lift on a flat surface free of any mud or water. These areas can conceal deep potholes in which the lift tires could fall, tipping the occupants. Extend all outriggers, if provided, fully. Place just approved wooden chalk blocks beneath the outrigger pads to prevent the unit from moving.

A serious danger for lift drivers is overhead power lines. This is due no matter what kind of lift is used. Like for instance, if the platform driver is not being aware, or if the platform is being controlled by ground employees that can not accurately access proximity to wiring and thus, either the worker or the platform itself can be easily brought into contact with electrical wires. The worker can be electrocuted unfortunately unless correctly insulated.
