All platforms come with a specified lift capacity. EG, 19’ Electric Scissor, lift capacity of 227kg, this works on the principle of 2 average weight people (weighing 90kgs each) with a 47kg capacity of tools or materials. DS Site Services / DS Plant Hire accept no liability for the inability to complete jobs by the hirer overloading the platform / basket being loaded above this level.

It should be noted that machines are designed as platforms for people to work at height with light loads and should, under no circumstances be used as material hoists. Any infringement of this will be placing the machine out of it’s designed parameters and could potentially lead to machine damage, danger to personnel using the lift and anyone in the proximity of the machine. Should such an incident occur the machine will be confiscated and action will be taken against the hirer. For an explanation of issues concerning proper / improper usage of platforms please go to https://www.ipaf.org/en/faqs
