What Is Elevating Work Platform?
  • An elevating work platform is a machine or a
    mechanical device that is used by the workers to
    carry out tasks at great heights. It can be
    termed as bucket truck or rather a mobile
    elevating work platform.
  • Elevated Work Platform is formally designed for
    the convenience of the workers to perform tasks
    at heights which are usually inaccessible.

What Are Such Platforms Used For?
  • Such platforms are mainly used to perform at
    elevated heights. These machines are not used for
    long periods of time as they involve risk of
    workers and commodity.
  • They are used for temporary tasks to be performed
    such as maintenance or construction work or else
    by firefighters in case of emergency. This
    feature differentiates them from permanent
    machines used in construction work such as
    elevators. They can be easily operated by a
    single operator.

What Are Various Types Of Elevated Work
Platforms?
  • There are various types of elevated work
    platforms. The various types of elevated work
    platforms have various and distinct features and
    applications. The driving mechanism is what
    causes the difference between them. Listed below
    are the classifications of elevated work
    platforms
  • Articulated Lift
  • They are mainly used for maintenance operations
    such as window cleaning and various indoor
    maintenance operations. They closely appear like
    Vehicle Loading Crane.

  • Trailer mounted EWP
  • These elevating work platforms are mounted on a
    moveable trailer and can be towed by most
    vehicles with a tow ball. They have manually
    adjusted stabilisers to provide stability for the
    platform while it is being used and have a range
    of working heights up to 26 metres.
  • Self-propelled EWP with scissor arms
  • These EWPs are self-propelled units for use on
    flat concrete surfaces or firm unsealed areas.
    The work platform is elevated by scissor arms
    which are powered by hydraulic cylinder. There
    are controls at ground level and on the platform.
    These EWPs can be fitted with outriggers, and
    their maximum platform heights can be over 30
    metres.
