On my recent trip to the IWF in Atlanta I came across this little jewl. Its made by Southworth. Its an electric hydraulic lift table. Comes fully assembled ready to go, Just plug it in and your set. The lifting capacity is 1500 lbs. with the press of a foot pedal. The top measures 30’ x 60”. Starting at 6” off the floor and rasing to 42” at its tallest position. This is a jewl! I wish I had this a very long time ago. I’ve only been using for a few days so far and I’m already hooked on it. Just wish I had bought two of these. One for home and one for work. This little puppy is going to be a big back saver. I’m keeping it at work, but when I get home at night and go out in my shop to work. The first thing I think of is ( MAN I wish I had one of those here to!). I’ve had my share of back problems and think this will be one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. No bending over to install drawer slides, just raise it up a little. Putting on base, no problem. Raise it all the way up. For me this is fantastic! I think I even feel better at the end of the day, not quite so tired. Even if you don’t have back problems, you’ll love it! I added a 1” thick piece of mdf to the top and made it a 4’ x 8’ work surface. As soon as I get time I’ll be adding bracing on the under side with some 8/4 poplar to stiffin up the over hang and help keep it flat.
Try it you’ll really, really like it!
