Can You Get a Portable Lift Table?

There are two ways to make a lift table portable. One is semi portable and the other is fully portable. To make a lift table semi portable, the table must consist of two wheels on one end and a removable dolly handle on the other end. To get a semi portable lift from point A to point B, the user of the table must take the dolly handle and place it into the dolly lift point. Once the user tilts the dolly handle towards them, the lift table will lift up, placing the wheels on the other end of the lift to touch the ground and be in use. The user can than move the table where ever they would like. The table must be moved without a load. A fully portable lift table is simply placed and welded onto a sub frame which consists of the frame itself and 4 wheels. It is not recommended to move a fully portable lift table with more than a 6000 lbs. load. Contact a Pentalift Sales Representative for more information.
