Specifications and applications:

The compact dimensions of the Manitou 100 SC diesel powered scissor lift facilitate its use on sites with obstructions. Foldable guard rails enable passing through doors and transport via a goods-lift. This diesel powered scissor lift has a capacity of 680 kg, allowing up to four people and more than 360 kg of materials required for aerial work. Our 100 SC diesel scissor lift is equipped as standard with a platform extension of 1.52 m.

This extension considerably increases an operators' working surface area, their comfort and overall safety on site. Like the rest of our diesel scissor lifts, this model is equipped with four hydraulic stabilisers and automatic levelling in order to secure operations at greater heights.

Our 120 SC diesel scissor lift enables operators to work comfortably at a height of 11.96 m. Its capacity allows for two possible configurations: four people inside + 134 kg of material or 2 people outside + 294 kg of material. Its platform extension of 1.52 m can increase the operator's working surface area and simplify the approach to certain areas that are difficult to access.

Due to its smaller width and its foldable guard rails, the compactness of the Manitou 120 SC diesel scissor lift is a real benefit. The 140 SC diesel scissor lift is our all-terrain platform that provides a capacity of 363 kg for aerial work (14.2 m). Two configurations are possible. Indoors: three people + 134 kg of material or, outdoors: two people + 203 kg of material. This diesel scissor lift is equipped as standard with an extendable working area of 1.52 m.
