1520 Scissor Hoist A model 1520 Scissor Hoist converts most flat-bed bodies into dumpers, and can be used with new dump bodies. The 1520 is effective on two-axle trucks from 10,000 lbs. to 30,000 lbs. gross vehicle weight. A double-acting electric power unit is standard or it can be ordered for a direct mount pump application. A 5-inch-diameter cylinder has a 20-inch-stroke to lift the body to the desired angle for efficient load delivery. The 1520 is rated as an NTEA Class 30, but is priced against lower-rated competitors.
