The apparatus which is responsible for raising and lowering the scissor lift is made from linked and folding supports that are designed in a crisscross or an x-shaped pattern.
The platform propels in a vertical way by applying pressure to the outside of the lowest set of supports, causing upward motion by extending the crossing pattern. The stroke, width, length and capacity or scissor lift are the most common product specifications. The difference between the devices's fully lowered and completely elevated position is known as the stroke. The platform's longest dimension is referred to as the length. Capacity is the maximum load or force supported by the scissor lift. The lift's narrowest dimension is its width.
