A scissor lift was required by a major grocery retailer to move pallet loads of goods into the store from the dock.
The problem was that the shaft that the lift table was going into was narrow and high which made the geometry challenging. It was also very important that the scissor lift be reliable and durable.
The product chosen was a Safetech AST3-4700 scissor lift, a customised 3 tonne Australian built scissor lift table with a 2.7 M x 2 M deck with corner guides in each corner, kick rails on three sides and interlocking controls.
The Safetech AST3-4700 scissor lifts was able to be installed into the narrow shaft and now provides the store with safe effective pallet handling. A Goods Hoist could not be installed in the shaft due to the narrow dimensions. In fact, only a triple scissor lift could achieve the necessary travel.
