Discuss Need Help With Scissor Lift in the American Professional Electrical Advice Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hi,
I have an older scissor lift that uses four 6 volt rechargeable batteries that are tied together. My scissor lift has an onboard charger that I plug up to 120 volts ac in order to charge the batteries. The scissor lift does not get used a whole lot, but there definitely are various times that I need to use it at my shop. The batteries are expensive to buy and I just don't get enough use out of them to justify the cost each time I need to replace them. Is there a converter that I could get and wire up to my scissor lift that would convert 120 volts ac to 24 volts dc? If this is possible, I could just keep the lift plugged up while I am using it. And, if the batteries are needed for stability, I could just leave the old batteries in place. Please let me know if this is possible and where I can get the converter. Thanks for your help.

Larry
