Lift, tilt and rotate your platform

The Ergonomic series of scissor lifts, tilt platforms and turn tables (45°-90° angle range) provide the perfect solution for safe and convenience load positioning. Reduce worker fatigue/accidents and increase worker productivity by speeding up processing times for tasks such as feeding or receiving parts, palletizing, work positioning and assembly. Maintaining a comfortable work height and angle means less reaching, bending and twisting actions, resulting in more productive, safer and healthier workers.

Delivering the ultimate in strength

All premium platform lift models use high tensile steel rollers, self-aligning spherical bearings and lifetime lubricated brushings at all pivot points. The high tensile steel rollers help support the lift and add to its superior strength. Steel tread plates are constructed from 50,000-55,000 psi yield steel and all cylinders are built in-house.

SL (Scissor Lift) model construction

The platform is a unitized welded structure painted high visibility yellow with safety striping. The scissor legs are constructed of solid high tensile steel plate and heavy wall structural cross tubes. Self-aligning spherical bearings are utilized at the center scissor and cylinder base positions. Lifetime lubricated bushings are used at all other pivot points. Cam followers provide superior strength and performance for the rolling end of the scissor legs.

TP (Tilt Platform) model construction

The platform is a robust welded structure designed to minimize twisting and deflection. The deck is painted high visibility yellow with safety striping on the perimeter. The full width piano hinge pivot includes a zinc plated rod coated with anti-seize lubricant. The hydraulic cylinders have polished chrome rods, low friction seals and self aligning spherical bearings.

TT (Turn Table) model construction

The turn table deck is a solid steel plate with a large pin that pivots 360° within a center spherical bearing. The deck plate is supported and rotates on base mounted rollers. All rollers are sealed yoke-type high capacity cam followers. Push button units are powered with an integral mounted electric drive motor and speed reduction system.
