May 16, 2013 – Presto Lifts says its ergonomic XZ Series hydraulic floor-level lifts can handle loads of up to 6000 lb, are useful in all the usual lift-table applications and can be easily loaded/unloaded with an ordinary hand pallet truck. The platform of an XZ lowers to floor level, leaving the pan-style platform no more than a 1/2 in. above the floor. Accessible from all four sides, XZ lifts rise to a height of just over 35 in. to minimize bending and lifting. A bright yellow 6-in. flexible strip is mounted to the lip of the platform to protect against toe injuries. Meantime, the motor can be controlled by a foot switch or pushbuttons, and a 10-ft lead is available at no additional charge. Six models offer two standard platform sizes, but custom designs are available, as is bellows skirting.
