At Above All Equipment Sales, we sell both new and reconditioned scissor lifts across many different brands, including Genie Scissor Lifts and Skyjack Scissor Lifts. Though we specialize in indoor lifts, we do carry an inventory of outdoor or rough terrain scissor lifts as well.

Whether you need a scissor lift for HVAC, electrical, painting, construction, or anything else, Above All is here to help you find the right equipment for your job. It is important to keep in mind your work environment when choosing your scissor lift.

Wide Vs. Narrow Scissor Lifts from Above All Equipment

A wide scissor lift is typically 46 inches wide, meaning it will not fit through your standard doorway. If you’re going to use a wide scissor lift, you will have to make sure you have a double door or larger entryway so the lift can fit through.

A narrow scissor lift is typically 32 inches wide, so they will fit through your standard doorway.

Scissor Lift Brands

Our most common scissor lifts at Above All are from Skyjack and Genie.

Genie Scissor Lift is the Genie GS-2632 or the Genie GS-2646, which are both great for maneuvering in tight spaces and can be used either indoor or outdoor.

Skyjack SJIII2646 and the Skyjack SJIII3226 are other popular scissor lifts.

We have all of our equipment specs for all of the current listings on our website. You can learn more by viewing those or by contacting us at Above All Equipment Sales.

When it comes to 19 foot and 20-foot scissor lifts, whether they are new, used, or reconditioned, there are many differences that can make or break your decision to buy one versus the other.

The difference isn’t just that extra foot in reach. There are many more differences between a 19 and 20-foot scissor lift. The 19-foot scissor lift seems to be more popular because they are the most affordable. But if you need to carry and lift heavy loads, you will have to go with the 20-foot scissor lift.

Weight Capacity in Scissor Lifts

The 20-foot scissor lifts were meant to lift up 750-1,000 pounds whereas the 19-foot lift can usually only lift about 500 pounds.

Price of Scissor Lifts

If you are trying to stay in a tight budget and you don’t need to lift over 500 pounds, then the 19-foot scissor lift is going to be your best option. They are more available to buy, easier to sell, and easier to maneuver.

Your options between a 19-foot scissor lift and a 20-foot scissor lift also comes down to where you are storing your lift. You need to make sure that your lift will fit through any doorways or hallways while you are using it, and situations like that.

The Best Brands for Scissor Lifts

The most popular brands for scissor lifts are Skyjack, Genie, and JLG. These are the most commonly sought-after scissor lifts because they offer the best mobility, functionality, and reliability in the industry.

Skyjack’s are made in Canada, so they are naturally better in colder conditions. A lot of business that we work with that work in cold food storage plants will use Skyjack because of this reason.

What to Look for When Buying a Scissor Lift?

Indoor Scissor Lift or Outdoor Scissor Lift?

The first this you need to consider when looking to buy a scissor lift is if you need it for indoor or outdoor use. There are many differences when it comes to indoor and outdoor machinery; mostly based on traction, height, and temperature/ weather.

New Scissor Lift or Reconditioned Scissor Lift?

The second thing you need to consider is if you want a new or reconditioned scissor lift. Essentially the only difference between new and reconditioned is the price. Reconditioned scissor lifts are used, but they have also had work done to replace all of the inner gears and part so that it is like new.

At Above All Equipment Sales, we sell both new scissor lifts and reconditioned scissor lift.

Other Factors to Keep in Mind When Buying a Scissor Lift:

  • Dimensions of the lift:
    • Will the lift fit inside?
    • Will the lift reach the height you need?
  • 90% of the scissor lifts we sell are new and reconditioned 19s and 26s.
