Snorkel Electric Boom Lift

Snorkel Electric Boom Lift

Types of Man Lifts
Scissor man lifts are made to vertically hoist workers to higher areas. They are commonly seen in the construction industry in order to transport or lift personnel form one place to another. Man lifts are power-driven and offer special handholds and platforms or steps to provide safe transport. The kind of construction work being carried out would decide exactly what type of man lift will be utilized in a project.

Electrically Insulated Man Lifts
According to Man and Material Lift Engineering, the man lift most preferred for working near electrocution hazards are electrically insulated man lifts. The electrically insulated man lifts provide protection to employees against accidental electrocution. These kind of equipment are in compliance with the American National Standards Institute A92.2 Category C, 46kV Rated. These electrically insulated man lifts offer fiberglass insulated booms, fiber optic control cables and are operated on nonconductive hydraulic hoses which serve to reduce ground fault.

Scissor Lifts
Scissor lifts are a special type of aerial man lift which is meant to transport employees vertically to difficult-to-reach areas. The scissor lift derived its name due to the scissor type of design of the folding supports which could raise and lower the platform. To be able to raise the lift, each one of the folding supports is opened so as to extend the platform to higher heights.

Scissor lifts could be either manually or hydraulically lifted. Hydraulic systems enable the scissor lifts to descend with just a release of hydraulic pressure, rather than depending on power. As the possibility of mechanical malfunctions preventing the platform from descending to the ground suddenly is eliminated, hydraulic systems make safer scissor lifts at the end of the day.

Capacity
Man lifts are designed in a huge range of weight capacities. Some man lifts have the capability to only hold many people while others have the ability to hold one individual. Platform lifts and scissor lifts are more beneficial for transporting numerous people, because boom lifts have less space located in their bucket.
