Scissor Lift Tips for Painters


When it comes to painting, a number of scissor lift features will save time, prevent strains, minimize floor damage, and keep operators safe by providing a large platform that maneuvers to the necessary height.

  • Consider how many trips up and down a ladder or even scaffolding it would take to get a job done. With a small, lightweight, maneuverable scissor lift, you can simply load the platform with all of your supplies and use the lift system to reach the right height. It saves a lot of time and effort.


  • Our Custom Equipment engineers take the concept of making jobs easier on a person’s body seriously. Hy-Brid Lifts have one of the lowest step-in heights in the industry—just one step as low as 20 in and the “climbing” is done. We also don’t see a reason for painters to strain as they crawl under or over a chain with their tools to get in and out of the lift, so our lifts use full swing doors. All of this helps prevent injuries and falls, which lessens potential worker’s comp expenses too.


  • Choosing a scissor lift that’s incredibly compact—small enough to fit through standard doorways—will make the job much easier. A heavy-duty, extendable platform gives the option for extra working space for two people after maneuvering to a working height as high as 20 ft.


  • A big concern for painters is preventing damage to flooring. A lightweight lift with counter-rotating wheels can move across tile, laminate, and carpet without causing damage. Furthermore, choosing a lift with a completely self-contained hydraulic system will reduce any potential of a leak.
