Pneumatic Pan-Style Scissors Lift with Industries-best 4" Reach Over Distance and 48" of Travel

Collapsable to a mere 1/2-inch, and boasting an industry-lowest 4-inch reach-over, Autoquip's XLR Air (XLRA) family of pneumatic hydraulic scissors lifts provide easy operator access to pallets and loads being assembled over the side of the scissors lift. Vertical air cylinders also allow for 48 inches of travel, the highest vertical travel in the industry for scissors lifts with pneumatic actuators, and capacities up to 3,000 pounds.

Common settings for air-powered industrial scissors lifts include explosion-proof environments, food processing plants, or other areas where it is more economical to power the units using shop air supply rather than single or three-phase electrical power. 

XLRA pneumatic scissors lifts are designed and manufactured in America's heartland to the highest standards of safety and reliability. In fact, this family of ergonomic pan style scissor lifts offers a significantly higher level of quality, safety, and durability than competing brands - while still being competitively priced. Standard options are available, however, the XLRA family provides a strong foundation for customization. The Autoquip design team can easily add numerous standard options or engineer features to fit your specific application.

Features and Benefits

Durability and Quality

  • Joints, the most critical wear points in the lift, feature chrome-plated, 100,000 psi, ultimate-strength pins for premium load strength and long life.
  • ½ 1/4-inch-thick steel platform (3/4 inch minimum for thru load) minimizes deck deflection, maximizes load stability, and greatly extends the life of the platform deck.
  • Solid steel legs and added stiffeners provide overall stability and straight, repeatable roller tracking as the lift raises and lowers.

Maintenance and Warranty

  • Autoquip offers an industry-best 2 year warranty on all parts as a promise that you've purchased the industry's most reliable scissors lift.
  • On-board maintenance devices enable maintenance crews to safely and effectively block open the scissors during inspection and routine maintenance.
  • Maintenance-free bearings at pivot points require no lubrication.
  • Vertically-mounted cylinders are easily accessed for inspection and maintenance.
  • High-strength steel rollers are easily replaced, minimizing downtime.


  • An industry-low 4-inch reach-over the sides of the lift keeps all work within the ergonomic "power zone."
  • 1/2-inch collapsed height increases the total ergonomic range, minimizing bending and improving worker productivity.
  • Simply connect shop air supply using the quick-disconnect air fitting to begin using.
  • Near-zero lowered height is easily accessed by pallet jacks and other wheeled loads, making costly permanent concrete pits unnecessary.
  • low reach-over also provides the smallest footprint in the industry for pan-style lifts, reducing floor space requirements and consumption


  • Hinged ramp at the front of the lift also serves as a toe guard, keeping toes clear of the ground-level platform as it lands on the floor.
  • Fixed flow control mounted directly to the air actuator controls the descent of the lift platform in the unlikely event of a sudden hose rupture.
  • Minimum 3:1 structural factor of safety makes these lifts the most structurally sound lift in the industry.
  • Compliance with recognized standards:
    • ANSI MH29.1 - Safety Requirements for Industrial Scissors Lifts
    • NFPA 70 - National Electric Code
    • ASTM - A36 - Structural Steel Standard
    • ANSI Z535 - Safety Labeling Requirements
    • AWS D.1 - Welding Standards
    • Applicable portions of OSHA 29CFR1910 - General workplace safety
