Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

It is vital to use extra caution when using a rough terrain scissor lift. Operators should be completely 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 can result in a 3 foot bounce when the driver is at the driver controls. Take into consideration all other traffic in the vicinity, since they might not know that you are moving. Plan your assent carefully. Park the boom lift on a flat surface which has no mud or water. These areas conceal deep potholes that could be probably cause the occupants to fall if the tires fell into the holes. If provided, use all of the outriggers, fully extended. Be certain to only utilize approved wooden chalk blocks.

Many lifts work from a metal platform on the end of the boom. The extended booms act as levers from the center of the drive unit. A 6-inch bump can cause a 3-foot bounce while you are at the driver controls. Be aware of all other traffic. They may 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 wherein the lift tires can fall, tipping the occupants. Extend all outriggers, if provided, to the full extension position. Place just approved wooden chalk blocks underneath the outrigger pads to prevent the unit from moving.

A serious hazard for lift drivers is overhead power lines. This is due regardless of what type of lift is utilized. Like for instance, if the driver of the platform is not being aware, or if the platform is being controlled by ground workers which is not able to correctly access proximity to wiring and thus, either the platform itself or the worker can be easily brought into contact with electrical wires. The employee can be electrocuted unfortunately unless correctly insulated.
