Howdy!

Looking to see if anyone has had any experience with portable scissor lifts? Need something that can fit in an astra van :thumbup2:

Hi
presume you mean portable tower, i have always used a Razor Deck folds down low enough to go in most small vans, handy to transport tools etc into the job and 2 mtr platform height is tall enough for most shop fronts etc

Me too Kev! Lol

Theres lots of car hoists available. However, some look very flimsy to me and no way could i concentrate working below one.

How would that be viewed from a health & safety point of view, which is always something you need to consider & is there any requirement to have it tested every 6 months or so which can be expensive.

Re: Best portable scissor lift for vehicles?

Although the stands I have found do not look very robust trust me they are. Used in motorsport a lot for quick jacking and have been put through rigorous testing.

In terms of health and safety, these stands have various safety features and testing is something I will have to look into?
