All Southworth lift tables are built with standard features that provide reliable performance and a long service life. Down speed is adjustable. Contoured legs provide extra width at the pivot point, combining greater strength with lower collapsed height. All pins, rollers, shafts, and bushings are lubricated for life. Heavy-duty torque tubes minimize twisting and deflection for greater rigidity. Oversize, low-pressure hydraulic cylinders extend the life of hydraulic components, while heavy-duty, wire-braided hoses have burst strength 400% greater than the hydraulic operating pressure. Full-width axles and full-length roller retainers increase stability, even with off-center loads. “Tell-tale” hydraulic return lines are clear plastic, providing visual indication when it is time to repack the cylinders. Built-in safety chocks prevent accidental lowering during maintenance. 
Founded in 1890, Southworth is the world’s leading supplier of vertical movement and positioning equipment and the industry’s leading innovator. All models are available through a national network of highly trained distributors.
