Rim lift with the Paratech HydraFusion Strut explained by Paratech Instructor Nigel Letherby. Nigel is playing around in the Paratech backyard and coming up with new ideas to make your rescues safer, in this video a safe and fast way to make a rim lift with the Paratech HydraFusion Strut.
The Paratech HydraFusion Struts (AcmeThread) are comprised of a 3″ diameter threaded aluminum shaft that extends hydraulically out of a 3 1/2″ diameter aluminum tube. The hydraulic lift capacity is 10 U.S. tons with a 2:1 safety factor.
Once the strut is extended, the AcmeThread collar is spun down to the locked position and creates a 20,000 lbs. 4:1 safety factor for stabilization.
Place strut into position, ‘EXTEND’ threaded shaft into desired length, ‘SPIN’ collar to ‘LOCK’ the strut.
It is as easy as… ‘EXTEND & SPIN TO LOCK’
Adjustments to the threaded shaft can be made in ANY increment up to the maximum length of the strut.
