Causes of Scissor Lift Problems

If your operations rely on this type of aerial lift, knowing the reason behind the breakdown of your machine is necessary.

Here are some of the common reasons why your equipment is acting up:

1. Overloading

Overloading your equipment is not advisable. Putting too much weight on the platform may result in the failure or breakage of the equipment. It may also result in injuries in the workplace. Watch out for warning lights and reduce the weight accordingly.

2. Inappropriate Use

Every Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWPs) has different ratings. These ratings indicate the situation where they can be safely used. It is essential to follow these to avoid work-related injuries. Scissor lifts that are for indoor use shouldn’t be used outdoors and vice versa. If ignored, it could result in broken equipment or serious injuries.

3. Tipping Hazards

When operating this type of equipment, make sure that there are no tipping hazards in the work area. It’s common for scissor lifts to tip when the ground is not leveled–checking the ground for any soft spots or humps before an operation should prevent accidents from happening. Additionally, you should also inspect if the tires are inflated properly.
