Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9606028A1] Apparatus for handling of objects (2) standing on a support base, and comprising a telescopatable strut (1) having a cylinder part (3) and a piston part (4), in which the strut, at the upper end of the cylinder (3) is adapted to be rotatably anchored directly in an upper corner box (7) or a similar means of the object (2), and in which the strut, at the lower end of the cylinder (3) is adapted to be anchored in a lower corner box (10) or a similar means of the object (2) by means of a link (9), and in which the strut (1) is longitudinally split at or close to its upper end, and in which the split upper cylinder part is formed as a compensation telescopic part (12, 13) permitting the lower part (11) of the split telescopic cylinder (3) with the link (9), which is connected to the lower corner box (10) of the object (2), to become displaced longitudinally thereby reducing the length of the active part of the cylinder when the object (2) is being lifted, whereby the imaginary line between the connection point of the strut (1) at the uppper corner box (7) of the object (2) and the foot (5) of the strut (1) is maintained substantially rectilinear while the object is being lifted or lowered.
