Scissor Lift

Scissor lift

A scissor lift is a type of platform that can usually only move vertically. The mechanism to achieve this is the use of linked, folding supports in a criss-cross pattern, known as a pantograph or scissor mechanism. The upward motion is achieved by the application of pressure to the outside of the lowest set of supports, elongating the crossing pattern, and propelling the work platform vertically. The platform may also have an extending bridge to allow closer access to the work area, because of the inherent limits of vertical-only movement.

The contraction of the scissor action can be hydraulic, pneumatic or mechanical. It allows a fail-safe option of returning the platform to the ground by release of a manual valve.

The Scissor Lift was first patented in 1963 by Charles Larson of the usa.

My project was inspired by jlg 260mrt Scissor lift.

The model has one-cylinder engine transmitted with a chain and  gears, it can move left – right, and the platform can be moved vertically.

I don’t have much bricks so I was limited with the whole project. The colors are not aligned and I’m not satisfied with the fence on the platform. 

Thanks on supporting me and best regards to all of you!
