Skyjack Scissor lifts

Skyjack Scissor lifts

How to Calculate Scissor Lift Length
The scissor jack lift's length 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 instance of this to show the point would be a 20-foot lift length which is featherweight made from Styrofoam that is practically weightless. It certainly will not be able to support at much of a height and can not support a lot at all.

Determine how high in the air the platform will be raised to calculate or determine the scissor lift length needed to support the weight of both occupants and objects on the platform in relation to the platform's weight.

The number of cross-sections of scissor folding supports sections which would be required to be extended at their full extension to be able to reach the needed height within the weight support parameters. Finally, you will never want to ascend a few employees up on a platform together with their materials which is on a platform supported by any type of unstable structure since clearly any machine that is prone to tipping would really put people in an extremely dangerous situation.

Determine the weight of every scissor cross-section. This is very important to determining the weight and length of the scissor lift you would require in addition to the overall stability of the machinery. When completely extended, determine the angle between the scissor arms measured against the horizontal or ground level.
