Skyjack Scissor lifts

Skyjack Scissor lifts

How to Calculate Scissor Lift Length
The length of a scissor jack lift is proportional to the scissor support weight and the integrity of the steel cross sections over the length. The scissor structures weight and length are corollaries, meaning that the former determines the latter for a stable scissor jack. An extreme example of this to show the point would be a 20-foot lift length that is featherweight made from Styrofoam that is pretty much weightless. It definitely would not be able to support at much of a height and can not support much at all.

To be able to calculate the length of a scissor lift, determine how high in the air you require to support a platform which will support of the weight of the objects and occupants on the platform as well as the platform's weight.

The number of cross-sections of scissor folding supports sections that will be required to be extended at their full extension in order to reach the required height within the weight support parameters. Finally, you would never want to ascend some employees up on a platform together with their materials that is on a platform supported by any kind of structure that is unstable since obviously any equipment that is susceptible to tipping will really put individuals in an extremely dangerous situation.

Each cross section should be weighed to determined the overall weight and length of the scissor lift in addition to the overall stability of the equipment. When completely extended, determine the angle between the ground or horizontal level against the scissor arms measured.
