Raising the bar
It’s in the mechanical advantage
Industrial scissor lifts can be raised and lowered to the precise height needed to slide a load onto and off the lift’s platform. When that transfer can be done with a conveyor, fork truck or other mechanical method, workers are saved from the potential for injury down the road and possible disability if left untreated. The mechanical advantage is out there – save your workers from back breaking lifting. You’ll also find lift tables even out the strength limitations among workers. Even the puniest person can keep things going when a scissor lift is used instead of brute strength.
