Boost Worksites with SQMH’s Scissor Lifts: Better Productivity

Scissor lifts are a versatile and cost-effective solution for businesses looking to improve worksite productivity and their bottom line. With improved safety, increased efficiency and a range of applications, scissor lifts are a valuable addition to any worksite. SQMH, located in Toowoomba, offers a great range of scissor lifts, including electric type from Sinoboom. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of scissor lifts and how they can positively impact your business.

Improved safety

Scissor lifts are designed to provide safe and stable access to high and hard-to-reach areas. Compared to ladders and scaffolding, scissor lifts provide a larger working platform and are equipped with safety features such as guardrails and non-slip surfaces. Electric scissor lifts, in particular, eliminate the need for manual labour, reducing the risk of worker injury.

Increased Efficiency

With a scissor lift, workers can easily move up and down to complete tasks quickly and efficiently. This eliminates the need for time-consuming set-up and tear-down of ladders or scaffolding, allowing workers to focus on completing the job at hand. The larger working platform also means that more materials can be transported in a single trip, reducing the number of trips required.


Scissor lifts can be used in a variety of industries and settings. They can be used for indoor and outdoor work, on uneven terrain or in narrow spaces, and can even be used on elevated surfaces such as mezzanines. Electric types, in particular, can be used in environments where emissions from gas-powered equipment are not allowed, such as indoor facilities.


While scissor lifts may require an initial investment, they can ultimately save businesses money in the long run. By eliminating the need for manual labour and reducing the time required to complete tasks, businesses can increase productivity and reduce labour costs. Electric scissor lifts can also save businesses money on fuel and maintenance costs compared to gas-powered equipment.

Choosing the right access equipment for your business

When selecting a scissor lift to buy or hire, it is important to choose the right equipment for your specific needs. SQMH offers a range of scissor lifts from Sinoboom which offer quiet operation, low emissions and a range of working heights and platform sizes to accommodate various tasks.
