This is a very common question for people who are in the market for an aerial lift. The short answer is a very long time, but it all comes down to how you take care of it, just like any other machine.
How Many Hours Does a Scissor Lift Last?
As long as the scissor lift is taken care of properly with regular maintenance, they should last about 30 years.
The hours record differently than other machines such as forklifts that would count idle hours. A scissor lift will only count the hours as it is in motion, so if you are hanging drywall or doing electrical, it’s not counting those hours.
So, we would say that a scissor lift can last about 500 to 1,000 hours of movement.
