Hydraulic Outrigger Cylinder for Aerial Work Platform

Outrigger Cylinder is an important component used for high-altitude work platforms, usually installed on the support legs or stabilizing legs of the platform to stabilize the platform. The leg cylinder controls the extension and fixation of the legs to increase the stability and safety of the platform.

Aerial Work Platform Outrigger Cylinder

Outrigger Cylinder is an important component used for high-altitude work platforms, usually installed on the support legs or stabilizing legs of the platform to stabilize the platform. The leg cylinder controls the extension and fixation of the legs to increase the stability and safety of the platform.

The working principle is as follows:

  • Structure: The leg cylinder is composed of a hydraulic cylinder and a piston rod. Hydraulic cylinders are usually installed on the legs, and the piston rod is connected to the bottom of the legs or other supporting structures.
  • Hydraulic pressure transmission: The hydraulic system delivers high-pressure hydraulic oil to the leg cylinder through a hydraulic pump. Hydraulic oil pressure acts on the piston of the hydraulic cylinder, pushing the piston and its connected piston rod to extend or retract.
  • Leg extension: When hydraulic oil enters the leg cylinder, the piston rod begins to extend. This will cause the legs to extend, increasing the support area of the platform and providing greater stability. When hydraulic oil is discharged from the leg cylinder, the piston rod retracts and the leg returns to its initial position.
  • Fixed support: Once the legs are extended to the desired position, the hydraulic system will close the inlet and outlet of the hydraulic cylinder through a control valve, locking the position of the piston rod, thereby fixing the legs. This maintains the stability of the platform and prevents accidental extension or folding of the legs.
  • Control and adjustment: The hydraulic system of the leg cylinder is equipped with a control valve, which can be operated by a controller or button to control the extension and fixation of the legs. The operator can adjust the length of the legs as needed to adapt to different work scenarios and terrain conditions.Hydraulic Outrigger Cylinder for Aerial Work Platform

The leg cylinder is installed on the legs or stabilizing legs of the high-altitude work platform, and increases the stability and safety of the platform by controlling the transmission of hydraulic pressure and the expansion and fixation of the legs. Their working principle is simple and reliable, providing a safer and more stable working environment for high-altitude operations.

Feature of Our Outrigger Cylinder

Compared to other hydraulic cylinders, leg cylinders have the following characteristics:Hydraulic Outrigger Cylinder for Aerial Work Platform

  • High stability: The leg cylinder is mainly used for the support and stability of high-altitude work platforms, so the requirements for stability are very high. Leg cylinders are usually designed and manufactured to withstand large lateral forces and pressures to ensure the stability and safety of the platform during high-altitude operations.
  • High load-bearing capacity: The leg cylinder needs to bear the weight of the platform itself as well as the load of operators and equipment. Therefore, leg cylinders usually have a large load-bearing capacity, which can stably support high-altitude work platforms and provide sufficient safety and reliability.
  • Height adjustability: The leg cylinder needs to have the ability to adjust its length to adapt to different work scenarios and terrain conditions. Through the control of the hydraulic system, the leg cylinder can be retracted and fixed to adjust the length and position of the legs, in order to achieve stability and balance of the platform.
  • Safety self-locking function: The leg cylinder usually has a self-locking function. Once the leg is extended to the desired position and fixed, the hydraulic system will automatically lock the piston rod to prevent accidental extension or folding of the leg. This safety self-locking function ensures the stability and safety of high-altitude work platforms.
  • Durability and reliability: Due to the special working environment and strict safety requirements of high-altitude work platforms, leg cylinders need to have good durability and reliability. Leg cylinders are usually made of high-quality materials and advanced manufacturing processes, and undergo strict quality control and testing to ensure their long-term reliable operation under high-strength working conditions.
    These characteristics make the leg cylinder an ideal choice for high-altitude work platforms, providing stable, safe, and reliable support and stability functions. Whether in the fields of construction, maintenance, decoration, or other high-altitude operations, leg cylinders can meet strict requirements and provide a safe and effective working environment for operators.
