  • weight restrictions?

    i need to get to a electrical junction box. due to adding lights above my approach area. the box however is 26 feet up. the scissor lift i inquired about is 4135 pounds and i weigh 180 pounds. is that more weight than my lane structure can handle?

    Probably yes but don't risk it. Use scaffolding.

      I would be very hesitant to put a 4300 pound structure on the approach. There are telescoping lifts that would probably work better for you -- something similar to the thing on the left in the picture. I've used electrically operated ones in the past and they were certainly not 4300 pounds as they were aluminum and fiberglass construction. Telescoping-Manlift.jpg

        thanks i felt the same way! sounds like way too much weight. im only gonna be up there 5-10 minutes. just long enough to make wire connections in junction box.
