Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

When utilizing rough terrain scissor lifts, it is important to utilize extra caution and be completely aware of your environment so as to be safe. The long booms on the machinery act as levers from the drive unit's center. For instance, a 6 inch bump could lead to a 3 foot bounce when the operator is at the driver controls. Take into account all other traffic in the vicinity, because they may not be aware that you are moving. Plan your assent carefully. Park the boom lift on a flat surface that 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 completely. Be sure to just use approved wooden chalk blocks.

Lots of lifts operate from a metal platform on the end of the boom. The extended booms act as levers from the center of the drive unit. A 6-inch bump could result in a 3-foot bounce while you are at the driver controls. Consider all other traffic. They may not be aware that you are moving. Plan your assent. Park the boom lift on a flat surface free of any mud or water. These areas could cover deep potholes wherein the lift tires could fall, tipping the occupants. Extend all outriggers, if provided, to the full extension position. Place just approved wooden chalk blocks beneath the outrigger pads in order to prevent the unit from moving.

Overhead power lines are a serious hazard for lift drivers regardless of what lift is being used. Like for instance, if the operator of the platform is not being aware, or if the platform is being controlled by ground personnel which could not correctly access proximity to wiring and hence, either the worker or the platform itself can be easily brought into contact with electrical wires. The worker can be electrocuted unfortunately unless correctly insulated.
