About Lift Tables

A lift table is a device that utilizes a scissor mechanism to raise product, pallet loads, etc. Applications for used lift tables include pallet handling, vehicle loading, and positioning product to be worked on. Positioning product at the proper height to be worked on really helps reduce work related injuries because workers are no longer bending over or reaching up to work.

Lift tables are commonly powered using hydraulic cylinders that are pressurized via an electric pump. This actuates the scissor lifting mechanism, allowing the table to raise. There are also pneumatic lift tables, as well as hydraulic foot pumps for loads that are not very heavy. Manual lift tables are ideal for lighter loads, and we even stock manual lift table carts for added mobility, which makes for a great alternative to a battery stand for forklifts. American Surplus has a wide variety of used lift tables in stock for all of your material handling needs.

Lift tables are essential equipment for warehouses that deal with heavy loads. These tables are designed to move loads vertically, and they can be customized to suit various warehouse applications. A lift table consists of a platform that is supported by scissor lifts, hydraulic cylinders, or pneumatic cylinders. The platform is raised or lowered by activating the lift mechanism, allowing workers to load or unload materials at a comfortable height.

One of the primary benefits of lift tables is that they reduce the risk of injury among warehouse workers. By providing a safe and efficient way to move heavy loads, lift tables minimize the need for manual lifting, bending, and twisting, which can lead to strains, sprains, and other musculoskeletal injuries. Lift tables also help workers maintain a comfortable working posture, reducing the risk of fatigue and other occupational health issues.

Another advantage of lift tables is that they can improve productivity and efficiency in the warehouse. With a lift table, workers can quickly and easily move materials to the desired height, reducing the time and effort required to complete tasks. Additionally, lift tables can be used in conjunction with other material handling equipment, such as conveyors and pallet jacks, to streamline workflow and improve material flow throughout the warehouse.
