At home, there are places which cannot be reached just by stretching out your hands. Attic and higher ceilings cannot be reached easily. One needs to use some tool to reach such place. When you wish to reach a higher place at home, you will use a ladder. You cannot use a ladder in a shop where the ceilings are very high and you cannot use them at work places where one needs to work up high in the air. In such places, where you cannot reach with your ladder, you can use a Scissor Lift. They are named so because of their appearance. The struts that are used looks like a set of scissors. They run on electric motors. These are also called as mobile elevated work platform. As the name indicates, they can also be moved around the area. They are also of use in many industrial floor areas.
