CONSOLIDATED SURVEY & SITE VISIT INFORMATION:
The lifts are normally located at an elevated height equivalent to one riser. The riser element attached to the
lift platform is a flexible vinyl strip that can be a tripping hazzard. (A solid step element should be placed at
the edge of the raised lift to eliminate this problem.)
All lifts are the full dimensions of the witness box.
The solenoid valve needed replacement after 2 months, along with hydraulic seals. (Sinking due
to reduction of hydraulic pressure did occur.)
The abrupt movement was the only concern related to operation.
The 5-year warrantee, allowing 30 days to accomplish repair work, was amended to "5 working
days to complete repairs."
A steel bar was provided to hold the scissors lift in the highest elevated position for servicing; but
there is not enough space to place the bar in the frame as intended.
