Electric Scissor Lifts


Electric scissor lifts are ideal for indoor work where accuracy and precision turns around sensitive material is critical.

The Skyjack product is versatile and reliable and therefore our chosen manufacturer for this application.



Manufacturers of long materials such as steel, timber and plastic often have huge warehouses with large amounts of wasted space – space that’s needed for a conventional forklift to turn which can have practical, financial and even environmental implications.

Combilift’s concept is built around the efficient use of space.  Our multi-directional and articulated technology alone can double the capacity of any warehouse – but with our bespoke service, you can tailor your Combilift for the performance and precision that you need.

With diesel, electric and gas-powered engine options, Combilift adapts to any environment seamlessly.  At home both indoors and out, the versatility and cost-efficiency we can bring to your business is unrivalled.
