Things to consider when purchasing scissor lift tables
In our range of scissor lift tables there are a few key factors that will determine the best lift table for your work. Below we've written a short summary of questions to consider when purchasing. Please note that many of our products have Data Sheets in the Downloads tab to the right of each product page to help answer your queries. These sheets contain specific information that's displayed clearly and easily.
1) What is the maximum weight of the items you need to lift?
A key difference between our lift tables is their maximum load capacity. Our current range has load capacities between 150kg to as a heavy as 1000kg. Choosing the correct capacity will require you to know the weight of the items you're intending to lift.
2) How high does your lift table need to reach?
Our mobile range has table heights from as low as 225mm extending up to 1618mm high. The height you require will depend on how the scissor lift table is to be used. For instance, the lift table is commonly used as a workstation so choosing one that's at a comfortable height to stand over may be preferred. To achieve the maximum table height we recommend using a double scissor lift.
3) How do you need the lift table to raise?
We have a few variations of how these scissor lift tables extend. Most of our scissor lifts are hydraulic, meaning that a simple foot pump action will raise the table height. The estimated amount of times it takes to pump down on the pedal will be referred to as the number of 'pedal strokes' in the product descriptions. An affordable alternative to this is the manual scissor lift table that is height adjustable via the hand crank. This is a simple rotary handle that is turned until the lift table is raised to the desired height.
A quick and effective alternative to both of these is our electric mobile scissor lift tables. These trolleys are powered by battery and operated using buttons making them incredibly quick and easy to use.
4) How quickly do you need the mobile scissor lift table?
Fortunately our mobile lift tables have lead times of 10 working days or less, providing you with fast and effective solutions for your handling and lifting requirements.
