Access Parts, based in Shrewsbury, UK, has built four specially designed, truck mounted scissor lifts for aircraft maintenance in Dubai. The lifts were ordered by Rapid Access LLC – the Middle East arm of Lavendon Group – and sold to the Emirates airline. The machines comprise an Isuzu NKR truck with a bespoke sub-frame chassis carrying refurbished UpRight X32 scissor lifts, supplied by Lavendon. Maximum platform height is 32 ft (9.7 m) and the units have four hydraulic outriggers.
