How to Charge a Scissor Lift
Numerous individuals value the ease of utilizing a scissor lift. The ease of working and the security offered from the lift's basket offer a lot more piece of mind than attempting to complete a similar task using the step of a ladder. The safety risks involved with this specific machine make it the best alternative for carrying tasks from heights.
The majority of scissor lifts are operated by batteries that are internally mounted in the lift's base. These batteries have to be charged following a long shift or due to sitting after extended periods without use. It is a simple task to charge the batteries. This can be carried out without any specialized equipment or tools and needs no heavy labor.
In order to prepare the scissor lift for charging, park the machinery next to an electrical outlet. Make sure you are doing this in a well-ventilated area. Next, in order to prevent another operator from driving away with the lift plugged in, press the emergency shut-off switch. The emergency shut off switch is the large red button found in the lift basket, near the control box or the charger. Find the battery charger on the base of the lift on the right side. Often, models which are older will have the charger mounted on the rear of the lift.
The AC extension cord should next be plugged into the charger. Be sure to charge in a well ventilated area and plug the cord into an electrical outlet. In order to prevent accidental damage from being run over, the length of the electrical cord on the battery charger is intentionally short. This is because if any extra length were to drop out of the battery charger storage area when in use, extreme danger can potentially happen.
