Are Drive On Lift Tables Available In Custom Sizes?

As standard, No Low lift tables are available in 3 different capacities: 2,500 lbs, 4000 lbs, and 6000 lbs are the different capacities you can choose from. Standard platform size range is from 44”Wx48”L to 50”Wx54”L and standard vertical travel is 35”. There are applications that do need a bigger platform size, more capacity, or a higher vertical travel. Also as standard, No Low lift tables have a back stop meaning you can only take a load on and off of the lift from one end. It is possible to get an application where the No Low lift table does not have a back stop. This therefore allows the operator to pick up the load from the front or back of the lift table.

Why Do Lift Tables Have a Guarded Foot Pedal Control Option?

A lift table’s standard and most common control unit is a push button control unit. The problem you may experience with a push button control unit is that in order to operate the lift table, the operator must use their hands to control the table. This can slow efficiency because if an operator is positioning a load and decides to raise or lower the table, he must first position the load before operating it. If he has a guarded foot pedal control station, the operator can simply lift the table using his foot while positioning the load. This option increases efficiency while still being safe.
