The EXCLUSIVE and patented Sun West Scissor COW is here and ready to save you deployment dollars. The scissor lift COW was born from the desire to speed the deployment of MatSing and other large multi-beam antennas, while eliminating the costs associated with crane rentals and man-lifts for these deployments. For example, it can take a crew hours to have a crane mount the 500-lb MatSing 12.6 antenna and install upwards of 36 lines of coax on a mast or tower. 

With the custom designed and purpose built scissor lift, the MatSing 12.6 can be permanently mounted to the scissor platform and travels with the vehicle, eliminating the crane and man-lift.  Therefore, leaving only the feeder cable connections to the antenna from a bulkhead port plate on the vehicle. The antenna rotates 360° further speeding deployment. The hydraulic system uses an environmentally friendly vegetable oil that is even considered safe in California.
