Boom Lift for Rent

Scissor Lift or Boom Lift? Picking the Right Equipment to Rent for Your Aerial Project

You have a job coming up that involves elevated work. You need an aerial lift platform you can use to get your team plus necessary tools and equipment up into the air to tackle project responsibilities. Before you can start planning the details of your project, you need to pick a lift type. Usually, the question comes down to two types of lifts: do you rent a boom lift or a scissor lift?

The Differences Between Scissor Lifts and Boom Lifts

Australian Boom & Scissor Lift (ABS) has a fleet of more than 200 aerial lifts, including both scissor lifts and boom lifts. If you are looking for a boom for rent, we can provide it. We have a wide variety of each of these lift types, which means we can help you find precisely what you need for your project. If you aren’t sure whether a boom lift or scissor lift is right for the job, we can offer some advice on the subject.

Scissor lifts feature crisscrossing braces that look like scissors. These braces extend upward and carry your workers to the elevated area of interest for your project. Scissor lifts have high weight capacity and typically boast large platforms—features that make them ideal for carrying large crews or big pieces of equipment to an elevated worksite.

The main drawback of scissor lifts is that they offer limited manoeuvrability. Most scissor lifts can only go straight up, which means you need to get the base, or the wheeled part of the lift, directly below the elevated area you are trying to reach. Depending on the layout of the project site, it may not be possible to get a scissor lift where it needs to be to reach the elevated area.

In such cases, look for a boom lift for rent. Boom lifts feature a platform situated on the end of a hydraulic arm. This arm design offers much more manoeuvrability than you can achieve with a scissor lift. The arms can be angled in many different directions to reach otherwise inaccessible areas.

Boom lifts can also typically achieve higher heights than scissor lifts. The trade-off is that boom lifts usually can’t hold as much weight, which means you get a smaller platform, less working space, and fewer options for using heavy equipment on elevated jobs.
