With such a wide range of Mobile Lift Tables on offer, 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.
What is the maximum load capacity your work requires?
The most important difference between our lift tables is the load capacity. This determines how much weight each mobile lift table can raise and move safety. Our current range of mobile scissor lifts have load capacities between a modest 150kg and a huge 1000kg. Choosing the correct capacity will require you to know the heaviest possible weight you intending to lift using the trolley. It's always better to overestimate this as it's never safe to load a lift table with items that exceed the load capacity.
How high does your lift table need to reach?
Our mobile tables have heights from as low as 225mm which can raise up to around 1600mm high. The height you require will depend on how the scissor lift table is to be used. For instance, if the lift table is commonly used as a mobile workstation, choosing one that will raise to a comfortable height to stand over is ideal. To achieve the maximum table height we recommend choosing a double scissor lift. These are built to reach far greater table heights whilst also maintaining a generous load capacity.
How do you want the platform to raise?
We offer a few different mechanisms to increase the lift table platform height. Most of our mobile scissor lifts are hydraulic, using a simple foot pump action to increase the table height gradually. An affordable alternative to this is the manual scissor lift table. This is height adjustable via a rotary hand crank that is turned until the manual lift table reaches the desired height.
A faster alternative to both of these is our electric mobile scissor lift tables. These mobile trolleys are powered by battery and operated using buttons to easily raise the platform. They increase the cost of each unit but will help to greatly improve overall work flow and production times.
How quick do you need your new lift table delivered?
Fortunately, all of our mobile lift tables have lead times of 10 working days or less for UK mainland delivery. We can even offer super fast next day delivery and delivery at more convenient time such as AM and Saturday deliveries. These delivery options are available as upgrades on our product pages.
