    Presto Lifts Inc.


    Hydraulic Floor Level Lift

    Ergonomic XZ Series hydraulic floor-level lifts from Presto Lifts Inc. can handle loads of up to 6,000 pounds. They’re useful in all of the usual lift-table applications (assembly, maintenance, palletizing, etc.) and can be easily loaded/unloaded with an ordinary hand pallet truck. The platform of an XZ lift lowers to floor level, leaving the pan-style platform no more than half an inch above the floor for easy roll on/roll off. Accessible from all four sides, XZ lifts rise to a height of just over 35 inches to minimize bending and lifting. A bright, yellow 6-inch flexible strip is mounted to the lip of the platform to protect against toe injuries.
