Bushman teamed up with J&B Equipment, Inc. to design and build this 15-metric ton, ceiling-mounted, hydraulic scissors lift station. Two 7 ½-ton patented monorail hoists lift a complete jet engine into position so that the engine modules can be secured to struts that are supported by eight monorail trolleys on the scissors lift. The scissors lift then moves the engine up or down to the desired working height. The scissors lift includes an air-over-hydraulic backup safety system that will support the engine in the event of a main cylinder failure.
