What is a Motorcycle Scissor Lift?

A Motorcycle Scissor Lift is a relatively compact, easy-to-use lift that can be used to lift motorcycles and similar vehicles. Generally used when performing maintenance and repairs, a Lift can also make it easier to do things like change the oil or check the air pressure in the tires.

Motorcycle Scissor Lifts are the perfect solution for displaying and maintaining your motorcycle. They allow you to easily work on your bike reaching all areas of the vehicle. The scissor lift itself is very stable and safe, and it can be used in commercial garages or even at home for a hobbyist.

When not in use, this type of Lift makes an excellent storage device for storing your motorcycle.

What are the different types of Motorcycle Scissor Lifts?

There are several types of Scissor Lifts available on the market today – electric, hydraulic, pneumatic, or a combination of all. Each type has its own benefits and drawbacks when it comes to using them as Motorcycle Lifts in your garage or workshop environment, so it is essential that you research properly before you make a decision on which is best for your needs.

Safety and specifications

A Motorcycle Scissor Lift is a safe, easy to use device, with hydraulic cylinders that raise or lower the platform which holds your bike securely in place as it is being worked on. The platform also has an adjustable height range.

These lifts are specially designed to support the weight of motorcycles, which have a different centre of gravity than cars and trucks. The anti-rollback feature on most models prevents accidental movement when you’re working under the vehicle, so you don’t have to worry about hurting yourself or damaging your bike (or anything else). This is an effective safety measure for all Scissor Lifts and is a feature that should be considered by anyone buying a mobile platform lift.

OMCN Motorcycle Lifts have several features that make them convenient and safe to use. Including a front stop to aid in placing the bike, even those with central stands. The low profile vice is provided with all models, while the lift moves on full rollers instead of sliding blocks. The retractable ramp takes up minimal space on the floor when the lift is up. The pins on every model have greasers embedded for smoother operation. A rear opening facilitates dismounting of the wheel, while an aluminium protection plate in the middle of the platform prevents stands from slipping. The lifts also come equipped with galvanised trays and a mechanical safety device for added security.

The scissor lift is designed for one person to use and operate. This makes them ideal for use in any garage, home workshop, or commercial setting where space is limited.
