HSE Bulletin: Liftlux Scissor Lift
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
HSE have published a bulletin on the recent structural failures of the main support structure (chassis) on Liftlux models SL260-25 and SL245-25 scissor lifts.
During the incidents cracks propagated across the entire width of the chasses causing the machines to collapse.
No similar failures have yet been identified in Liftlux models 210-25 and 205-25, although because these models are of a similar design, they should also be subject to the action detailed by HSE.

LEARNING POINTS / ACTIONS TAKEN
If you have one of these machines and have not completed the inspection as required by the manufacturers’ bulletins released recently, you should immediately withdraw it from service so that it can be examined by a competent person.
During examination, extreme care must be taken to ensure that the examination is done safely without a risk to the examiner should the chassis collapse. For example, additional props and supports should be placed under the machine chassis if the examiner needs to gain access beneath it.
