English term or phrase:scissors lift (truck)
This is a type of truck where the body lifts up hydraulically on supports that make an "X" when seen in cross-section (which is why it's called a "scissors lift"). The most common place they're seen is in airports where they are used to load food into the airplane kitchen. In the US they're often called(colloquially) "Skychef" because the name of this company often appears on them.
