The Basics of Successful Specification

Maintenance and engineering managers must consider a number of factors when selecting an aerial work platform that best fits their needs:

  • What is the height of the projects?
  • Does the area feature obstructions or obstacles?
  • Is the task inside or outside?
  • What power sources are available?
  • What is the lift's capacity?
  • How many duties can the lift perform?
  • Is the lift easily transportable?
