A new, medium rough terrain scissor lift from Kennards Hire was ideal for maintenance work at an electricity sub station where the ground surface was uneven.
Integral Energy used the machine at its Quakers Hill facility to connect flexible connectors from 132 KV busbars to 132 KV isolators. Medium rough terrain scissor lift is a safe way of working at heights, and allowed it to meet all occupational health and safety requirements.
The wider wheel base is good on uneven ground, and the work platform is large enough to easily accommodate two blokes and their tools.
The medium rough terrain scissor lift is extendable, so one does not have to move the machine around as much.
Kennards says the medium rough terrain scissor lifts, which it introduced in mid 2006, have been popular for situations ranging from rough building sites to slightly sloping slabs.
The diesel-powered JLG machine is 1.75m wide, with self-levelling outriggers.
It has a platform height of up to 7.92 metres (26ft) and the work platform is 1.65m by 2.59m, with a load capacity of 567kg.
Battery electric-powered, 9.75m (32ft) and 5.8m (19ft) scissor lifts, which are suitable for level slab use, are also available.
Kennards has also added spider lifts and boom lifts to its fleet of aerial work platforms.
The 12m boom lift has a dual operating system, running on either diesel or battery electric power, while the Spider Lift has rubber tracks for navigating soft or uneven ground and is self-driving.
