Scissor Lifts

Scissor lifts comprise our most popular access platform category, offering excellent versatility for lifting people and tools within warehouses, factories, retail outlets and more. We stock electric and rough terrain scissor lifts to suit your requirements:

  • Electric Scissor Lifts: Best for smooth, flat indoor surfaces, electric scissor lifts offer zero emissions and quiet operation. Drive speeds reach 4 mph and platform heights range from 5 to 33 feet. Popular models include the JLG 1930ES.
  • Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts: For uneven outdoor job sites, rough terrain diesel lifts feature larger tires and increased ground clearance. Lift heights range from 12 to 31 metres for these high-capacity platforms from JLG. 

Cherry Pickers

Also known as boom lifts, cherry pickers utilise an articulating or telescoping boom to achieve working heights from 34 to 180 feet. The hydraulic booms allow these access platforms to reach over obstacles and into confined spaces most scissor lifts can’t access.

We offer diesel and electric cherry pickers tailored for indoor or all-terrain use, including towable trailer-mounted lifts perfect for frequent location changes. Leading brands include JLG and Hyundai. 

Access Platforms

Besides scissor lifts and cherry pickers, TAG Forklifts’ extensive rental selection includes other access platform types to cover unique applications:

  • Vertical Lifts: Featuring a vertically telescoping mast, vertical lifts are ideal for high-density situations with minimal swing room. No outriggers makes them perfect for loading bays and goods lifts.
  • 4×4 Pickup Truck Mounts: These compact 4×4 mounted platforms offer enhanced off-road mobility thanks to the vehicle’s 4-wheel drive capabilities.
  • Trailer Lifts: Trailer lifts let you easily move the access platform between locations by towing it behind any vehicle equipped with a tow hitch. They combine portability with rough terrain competency.

Access Platforms For Sale

Alongside access platform rental, TAG Forklifts sells new and used cherry pickers, scissor lifts, telehandlers and vertical mast lifts across the North West. As authorised dealers for JLG, Hyundai and more, we offer premium access platforms built to handle years of use.

Our refurbishment programme also brings pre-owned units up to stringent quality benchmarks before sale. This provides a cost-effective way to invest in your own access fleet.
