Diesel powered & rough terrain mobile elevating platforms
Diesel scissor lifts are perfect for reaching high levels on construction sites and building exteriors. They are heavy and often wind rated for safe outdoor work. These MEPs often have additional outriggers for improved balance and stability. They are ideal for construction, signage installation, painting, cleaning, and more.
Diesel scissor lifts are designed for external use. As the fumes produced by the engine can be harmful, they are not suitable for use indoors or in enclosed spaces. The diesel engine provides more power, so they are better equipped for travelling across roads and uneven surfaces. We also have rough terrain scissor lifts, with more robust tyres and better positive traction and gradeability - ideal for construction sites.

Do I need a licence for a scissor lift?
You do not need a licence for operating access equipment. However, for employees and contractors, the health and safety legislation for height regulations 2005 states that all operatives using MEWP equipment must be competent and trained via a recognised scheme. You can find IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) training courses for static vertical, mobile verticle, push around vertical equipment and more at ipaf.org.
From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.
If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.
YOU MUST NOT USE RED DIESEL IN HIRED MACHINES OR EQUIPMENT.
If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.
