How to Charge a Scissor Lift
There is a great convenience when utilizing a scissor lift, because the convenience of working and the lift basket's security gives peace of mind while attempting to carry out tasks that could have otherwise needed working off the rung of a ladder. The safety risks involved with this specific machine make it the right alternative for completing tasks from heights.

Nearly all scissor lifts are powered electrically by batteries that have been mounted directly onto the machinery. These batteries would have to be charged following a long shift or after sitting for extended periods without use. It is an easy job to charge the batteries. This can be done without any particular equipment or tools and needs no heavy labor.

The machinery has to be parked next to an electrical output so as to prepare the scissor lift for charging. This charging area must also be in a well-ventilated place. Next, in order to avoid 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 inside the lift basket, near the charger or the control box. Find the battery charger on the base of the lift on the right side. Normally, units which are older will have the charger mounted on the back of the lift.

After that, plug the charger into the AC extension cord. Be sure you are charging in an area that is well ventilated and next plug the extension cord into an electrical outlet. So as to prevent accidental damage from being run over, the length of the electrical cord on the battery charger is purposely short. This is because if any extra length were to drop out of the battery charger storage place when in use, extreme danger can likely occur.
