Manlift Hire in Melbourne

Manlifts are also referred to as aerial lifts or cherry pickers. They are aerial equipment used to elevate people and equipment to heights, such as during building or maintenance. Aerial lifts exist in a variety of configurations, including scissor lifts, boom lifts, and personnel lifts. They are extensively used in the construction, maintenance, and warehousing sectors. Manlifts are classified into scissor lifts, boom lifts, and vertical personnel lifts. Electric scissor lifts feature a manlift vertical platform that may be lifted or lowered. Boom lifts have a horizontally extending articulated arm that may reach heights of many floors. Vertical lift platforms are comprised of a single vertical mast and a tiny platform that may be lifted and lowered.

Some Questions You May Like To Ask Before A Manlift Rental

A manlift is a specialised aerial work platform (AWP) that is used to safely lift a worker and their equipment on both indoor and outdoor construction projects. They're distinguished from other aerial lifts, such as boom lifts, by their size, look, and application.

Manlifts can be transported via large and heavy duty trailers all across Australia. If you do not have the resources and means to have the manlift transported to the worksite, it is best to ask your access hire contractor whether delivery is also possible. 

Just like any other mobile elevated work platforms (MEWP), the working height will differ depending on its brand and model. The manlift's working height ranges from 5 to 18 meters.  Eastern Access Group Melbourne offers you manlifts that have working heights of 5.6 and 12.3 meters. Choose a manlift hire that will cater to your specific access work requirements. 

In general, manlifts can normally hold from 1 up to 2 persons inside the basket. Some bigger and more updated manlifts can also accomodate more than two persons at a time. However, you must confirm with your access hire contractor  the maximum number of persons who can operate the manlift. Knowing and abiding by the manlift's capacity will be a preventive measure for future accidents in the workplace. 

Manlifts can both be used indoors and outdoors but are recommended to be operated on even and level ground. Some manlifts are equipped with outriggers and stabilisers that help keep them in place. Safety is a number one priority at Eastern Access Group Melbourne. Always consult access hire equipment experts before proceeding to rent a manlift. 

These can include rough terrain scissor lift, articulating boom lifts, telescopic boom lifts, terrain scissor lift, diesel knuckle booms, diesel scissor lifts and electric knuckle booms. Always talk to your truste access equipment hire company for aerial work platform available that will suite your needs.
