Marcotte Mining has completed development of an ultra-high scissor lift that the company said exceeds standard underground capabilities. Designed to provide a safe work platform for installation of services in tunnel headings, the UHL6000 ultra high lift carrier reaches heights up to 20 ft (6 m).

Marcotte said the unit was designed in response to a client’s special request. From initial consultation, to design, build and delivery, the entire process took only 10 weeks. Special safety features incorporated into the UHL6000 include outrigger jacks for added stability, an enhanced fire suppression system, side shift feature deck, and refined vertical and horizontal capabilities.
