Scissor Lift, Aerial Work Platforms, Order Picker or Cherry Picker

Scissor Lift

Scissor lift as it is commonly called, is also known as a cherry picker, order picker or aerial work platform depending on which industry you’re in.  To be technically correct, we carry only the order picker and aerial work platform but we still call them “scissor lifts” today because many still know them by this name in the industry. The correct terms are shown below:

Is this a Scissor Lift, Cherry Picker, Order Picker or Aerial Work Platform

Well, it’s sort of all of the above, however, the name that stuck to the industry is still the scissor lift even though many are actually referring to the aerial work platform.  However, traditional scissor lifts that have the signature scissor mechanism linked with the criss-cross X patterns are facing a downward demand as advancement in technology using telescopic masts have churned out a lighter and better “scissor lift” in the form of the telescopic mast aerial work platforms.

What’s more, there isn’t any cherries to be picked in Singapore.
