Scissor Lifts

Scissor lifts, also called mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) represent an affordable and versatile choice for working safely at height. Compact in size yet able to reach working heights beyond 10 metres, scissor lifts allow a single operator to position themselves precisely where needed.

We stock electric and rough terrain diesel scissor lifts from trusted brands like JLG and Hyundai. Our electric lifts feature zero emissions and ultra-quiet operation, making them ideal indoors. The rugged diesel models handle uneven terrain outdoors with larger platforms and higher lift capacities.

Cherry Pickers

Also known as boom lifts, cherry pickers feature an articulating arm that extends horizontally as well as vertically. This makes them perfect for reaching over obstacles when standard vertical lift access won’t suffice.

We offer diesel and electric cherry pickers with working heights from 10 to 18+ metres. Compact, low-weight units are suitable for access through doorways and congested sites. Larger units can lift multiple workers in a man basket with higher capacities for tools and materials.

Access Platforms

Rounding out our powered access range includes vertical lifts, material hoists and mobile scaffold towers. Vertical lifts feature a fixed vertical mast that lifts straight up and down, saving space compared to articulated booms.

Material hoists efficiently raise tools during construction, while towers provide an adjustable scaffold platform that’s simpler to erect than traditional scaffolding.

Access Platforms For Sale

In addition to short and long-term rental, TAG Forklifts offers access platforms for outright purchase. Our selection includes new JLG and Hyundai models alongside high-quality refurbished lifts. This allows smaller contractors and businesses to benefit from owning access platforms at significant cost savings compared to brand new units.

All our refurbished access platforms for sale undergo comprehensive reconditioning and testing by our experienced engineers. This includes:

  • Full-service, fluid changes and replacement of filters/perishable parts
