How to Charge a Scissor Lift
There is a great convenience when utilizing a scissor lift, since the convenience of working and the lift basket's safety provides peace of mind while attempting to carry out tasks which could have otherwise needed utilizing the step of a ladder. The safety risks involved with this particular equipment make it the best choice for performing 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 after a long shift or due to sitting after extended periods without use. It is a simple job to charge the batteries. This could be carried out without any particular tools or equipment and requires no heavy labor.
So as 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. After that, 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 big red button located near the control box or the charger, in the basket of the lift. Find the battery charger on the right side of the base of the lift. Normally, models which are older would have the charger mounted on the rear of the lift.
The AC extension cord should next be plugged into the charger. Be certain to charge in a well ventilated place and plug the cord into an electrical outlet. In order to avoid 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 place while in use, extreme danger could likely occur.
