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.
