Alerts have been issued by the Office for Product Safety and Standards regarding the following models of scissor lift.
Tecalemit Scissor Lift SF9094 or 5 and SF9064 or 5 (Manufactured 2014 – 2018)
Saturnus EV 40, 45 and 50 Scissor Lift (Manufactured 2014 – 2018)
The manufacturer had previously identified a potential weakness in a weld on the scissor lifts, provided a kit which should be fitted to the scissor lift and issued instructions to avoid using the lift with a load exceeding 3.5 tonnes until the kit has been fitted.
However while awaiting the fitting of the kit, a lift catastrophically failed with a load of less than 3.5 tonnes. Operators are now advised that they should stop using the scissor lift immediately until the manufacturer’s kit has been fitted.
