With the sale my local Genie dealer is having, I am considering a new lift... thinking maybe a new sicssor lift or a aerial lift. anyone have any suggestions?

I currently own a small genie 1930 scissor lift, I am looking for a higher ceiling lift at the same time will fit thru a standard 36" wide, 7.5' doorway. Anyone got ideas?

Scissor lift is only good indoor with no obstacles, if you ask me

oh so you added door restrictions. small scissor lift then, they can come pretty narrow. Hope you find one that works.

I have almost no experience with aerial lifts Genie makes. I saw them in action by the window/glass boys a few times. They seemed like the size of a home fridge, fits on a pickup bed and goes as high as 30 feet. I was thinking sweet..no more towing around.

Scissor lifts only go straight up, so you have to have a good surface where you'll be working.

If you can't get the equipment below where the work is to be done or it is unsafe to do so, aerial can be parked on a safe, rigid area and reach in.

So, I think aerials are more versatile

They are really 2 different beasts as far as I'm concerned, what are you using them for primarily?

I would go aerial if it's similar to the pick. That way you can have one for exterior at your beck and call.

If you only need a bigger one for interior occacasionally why bother?

Never heard of one that small would be interested in pics if you have.:clap:
