Second hand scissor-lift
One has to paint the outer walls of a building comprising 12 floors. Reaching the first few floors, say first two, may not pose one a great difficulty, however, trying to access the areas above that definitely requires a special arrangement. And that special arrangement is a scissor-lift, also called a cherry picker.
So, what is a scissor-lift?A scissor-lift or scissor-lift platform is used to have an access to great heights. It has a platform with a scissor like support that helps to raise a person to a desired height. The platform is raised either pneumatically or mechanically. The base of the lift comes with wheels or tracks.
True that the primary reason of manufacturing a scissor-lift is to reach the unreachable areas, however, the arrangement is also used to bridge smaller heights.
Interestingly, there are trucks that are equipped with scissor-lifts. These trucks are used when travelling long distances.
