What do customers say about the Aichi Scissor Lift: A contractor who builds non-combustible homes liked this machine so much he purchased two units for the job site.   Another feature customers like is the ability to lower the safety handrails so the unit can fit through most standard doors (measuring 80″ high by 32″ wide).

I personally like this product because of how smooth the ride is. The standard options on the lift also make it extremely user-friendly. 

What Alternatives Are Available? Currently, JLG ranks number one in this class, but Aichi is ranked number five and climbing. The AICHI scissor lift is a trusted worldwide aerial equipment manufacturer, renowned for its tradition of excellence and commitment to quality and efficiency.
