Scissor Lift Table Optional Accessories

Options for lift tables and scissor lift tables are available for all of Pentalift's extensive product line including pre-engineered lift tables as well as custom built lift tables.


The maximum load (evenly distributed) that the scissor lift can accomodate and lift.

Capacity End / Side Axle load

The maximum amount of single axle load (in the case of rolling loads) which can be applied to the loading edge of the platform (end or side) when the lift is in any raised position. This rating considers: 1) that some amount of deflection will occur during load transfer, 2) the moving and impact forces imposed by the load, 3) that this is a temporary condition during load transfer only, and 4) that the scissors lift platform is static and non- moving




End And Side Load Scissor Lift

Capacity End / Side Edge Load

The maximum amount of static load that can be applied to the edge of the platform (end or side) when the lift is in any raised position. This rating considers: 1) that some amount of deflection will occur during load transfer, 2) that this is a temporary condition during load transfer only, and 3) that the scissors lift platform is static and non moving.

Hydraulic Velocity Fuse

Prevents free-fall if the hydraulic hose is severed. Note: The fuse may not lock if the lift table load is light in relation to its overall capacity.

Scissor Lift Velocity Switch

Power Unit Horse Power

For any given lift, increasing the horsepower rating of the power unit increases the lifting travel speed of the lift.

Scissor Lift Power Units

The power supply voltages available include 115 and 220 volt single phase. 230, 460 and 600 volt 3 phase.  380 3 phase 50 hertz voltage is also available. 3 phase voltages are recommended where possible to avoid any line loss issues.

Guarded Foot Pedal Control Station

Offers control of the raising and lowering of the lift via foot pedals.
Lift Table Fot Controls

Synchronization of multiple
lift tables

Using specialized electro hydraulic technology multiple lift tables are synchronized to raise and lower in unison.

Locate / Hold Pins

The purpose of the pins is to locate and hold the lift platform in a specific location for an indefinite period of time. The pin extends to rest on a hard stop in the pit wall or adjacent to the lift platform if it is not in a pit wall. Pins that are typically hydraulically activated to extend and retract under power.

Reinforced yellow vinyl bellows with pleats and reinforced rods help to prevent debris from entering the underside of the lift. [more...]
