Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

It is really vital to utilize extra care when utilizing a rough terrain scissor lift. Operators must be completely aware of the surrounding environment. Long booms on the machines act as levers from the drive units center. For example, a 6 inch bump can lead to a 3 foot bounce when the operator is at the driver controls. Take into consideration all other traffic nearby, because they may not be aware that you are moving. Plan your assent cautiously. Park the boom lift on a flat surface which has no mud or water. These areas cover deep potholes which can be potentially cause the occupants to fall if the tires fell into the holes. If provided, use all of the outriggers, extended to their full extension position. Be sure to just use wooden chalk blocks which are approved.

Lots of lifts work from a metal platform on the end of the boom. The long booms act as levers from the drive unit's center. A 6-inch bump can result in a 3-foot bounce while you are at the driver controls. Consider all other traffic. They might not know that you are moving. Plan your assent. Park the boom lift on a flat surface free of any water or mud. These areas can cover deep potholes wherein the lift tires can fall, tipping the occupants. Extend all outriggers, if provided, completely. Place only approved wooden chalk blocks underneath the outrigger pads to prevent the unit from moving.

Overhead power lines are a serious hazard for lift operators no matter what lift is being used. Like for instance, if the platform driver is not being aware, or if the platform is being controlled by employees on the ground which could not correctly access proximity to wiring and therefore, either the worker or the platform itself could be easily brought into contact with electrical wires. The employee could be electrocuted unfortunately unless properly insulated.
