Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts

When utilizing rough terrain scissor lifts, it is really important to utilize extra care and be completely aware of your environment in order to maintain safety. The extended booms on the machine act as levers from the drive unit's center. For example, a 6 inch bump can cause 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 know 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, fully extended. Be sure to just utilize wooden chalk blocks that are approved.

A lot of lifts work from a metal platform on the end of the boom. The extended booms act as levers from the drive unit's center. A 6-inch bump can 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, completely. Place only approved wooden chalk blocks under the outrigger pads in order to prevent the unit from moving.

A serious hazard for lift operators is overhead power lines. This is due no matter what type of lift is used. For instance, if the driver of the platform is not being aware, or if the platform is being controlled by ground employees which can not correctly access proximity to wiring and hence, either the worker or the platform itself could be easily brought into contact with electrical wires. The employee might be electrocuted unfortunately unless correctly insulated.
