California-based Orange Machine Corp. has introduced two new scissor lifts into the low level access market in North America.

California-based Orange Machine Corp. has introduced two new entries into the low level access market in North America. The single platform extension 1028SP and dual platform deck extension 1028DP scissor lifts both offer 10-foot platform heights and 28-inch widths, while weighing 1,050 pounds.

"It is the lightest, most compact self-propelled scissor in the USA," said Robert Parker, who with Johnny Parker, Ron Parker and Mark Parker, started Orange Machine Corp. John Parker made a 10-foot low-level access unit in 1966. "Our family ahs been in the AWP business since inception," Robert Parker said.

Standard features on the scissors are point-and-go control, flashing beacons, operator horn, non-marking tires, Full River AGM batteries and hand-crush protection.

The unit is assembled in China by Dingli and features components from England, France, China and the US, Robert Parker told ALH. The units have stowed heights with guard rails of 64.75 inches and without guard rails (platform only) of 22 inches. The scissors are 44.75 inches long, have a 37.5-inch wheel base and a lifting capacity of 500 pounds.
