Scissor lift is a function of the mechanics on many lift types. In order to give any aid we need to know which type/application of the lift. Would do no good to give you a reputable manufacture of car lifts if you want to move freight off of a trailer.

"we are willing to buy scissor lifts for our plant." How will your plant use this scissor lift? Changing shop lights? Is it going to be used indoors? Indoors you have 2 options, 1) battery powered or 2) propane fuel for an IC engine. Neither one is very green, battery acid fumes or CO, both will make you sick or kill you. If it's going to be used out doors you can also find 4x4 RT units with IC engines fueled by propane or diesel. That takes care of the power plant. Now, how high in elevation do you need to go? 5 feet, 50 feet or somewhere in between?

Being you have told us where on Earth your located, I did a world wide search for you with About 3,470,000 results (1.01 seconds), →pretty simple←

When I worked at UpRight Scaffolding, we manufactured both scissor and boom man lifts. We had 2 (MX15 and MX19) scissor lifts that were narrow enough to pass through a common 30' door opening and when fully collapsed would fit into an elevator. Max. weight for the MX19 was 3,000 pounds which most elevators could handle. Both were battery operate. Not sure what kind of confines your working in and if that is what your looking for.

I don't know if they have a LEED designation or not, but I have been using Pentalift for over 20 years with good results.

Yes, I even heard about them, had gone through some of their reviews and got good comments about the products. I got the following link and it says they are LEED certified manufactures of heavy lifting equipment http://www.pentalift.com/

Please confirm that you are using the services of http://www.pentalift.com/ , If you are able to help me kindly help me on this matter.
