For scissor and boom lift operators, it’s not just about how high the lift can go or how far it can reach, but also how to the get the job done once they’re at height.
For example, work-at-height tasks such as welding might require
power in the platform. In other cases, HVAC, electrical, lighting and plumbing tasks might require work in space-restricted areas.
This is where accessories certified for use with mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) can deliver task-specific benefits. From products that provide a convenient place to store and hold tools and material to systems that deliver power in the platform,
as well as platforms that improve accessibility for space-restricted areas and more, accessories can help an operator get the most out of their equipment, enhancing efficiency and productivity.
Take, for example, the Genie® Lift Power™
system, which includes a new generation of hydraulically driven generators. A three-phase, 240V (60 Hz) 12 kW generator solution is uniquely configured for North American boom lift welders to run heavy-duty weld machines, with lower power options
available. Delivering power almost immediately with just the flick of a switch, the modernized system means fewer interruptions when using generator-to-power tools, an important upgrade, particularly for welding at height.
For work that in space-restricted areas, the Genie Lift Tools™ Access Deck for scissor or boom lifts provides a secondary surface to work from, elevating operators 22 in (0.56 m) above the platform floor. This extra boost can be
just what is needed to safely increase productivity for applications that take place in restricted spaces. In addition to improving jobsite efficiency, accessories like the Access Deck can reduce equipment rental costs because they could, in some
cases, eliminate the need to rent a second lift with a smaller platform and/or lower occupancy for those hard-to-reach areas or other specialty jobsite needs.
MEWPs themselves are powerful tools that enable safe work at height. But, when
paired an add-on or accessory developed specifically for your task, they can deliver even greater safety and productivity benefits.
