Hello, I could use some help determining what size hydraulic cylinder I need to be able to tilt my turbine tower up. What I have is a 70 ft tower where the first 20 feet weigh 2500 lbs, the 2nd 20 weigh 1700 lbs and the 3rd 20 ft weigh 1000 lbs and the last 10 feet weigh 1000 lbs. For a total weight of 6200 lbs. The Tower is hinged at the 2 ft point and the cylinder base will be attached 1 ft away from the base of tower and attached to the tower at the 6.5 ft point. How would I determine the force required to get this vertical?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
