Design and Construction of a Powered Toggle Jack System
The work of this research or project is to design and construct an electric powered toggle jack which offers easy lifting of loads especially cars whose capacities are not more than 1.25 metric tons. The components and parts associated in the design were determined through design analyses and calculations from which specification of dimensions and sizes are made. The basic components are the toggle jack, servo-motor, two –way switch and wires. These components were assembled or fabricated and tested for functionality and reliability and its carrying capacity. The electric powered toggle jack is capable of lifting vehicles with maximum load as specified. The device is very efficient with its good or high mechanical advantage.
