I am using a hydraulic cylinder with a pulley on top. The bottom of the cylinder is fixed and the top has the pulley mounted on it free to rotate. I am trying to double the lifing height of the cylinder. The cylinder stroke is 24inches and I need to make if lift something from the ground up to 48inches. I am using a chain that one end is connected to the base of the cylinder, the chain is draped over the pulley and back down to the ground where it is attached to the object I am lifting up 48 inches. I am trying to figure out how to determine what diameter pulley to use to double the lifting height of the cylinder. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks,

Glen
