Selecting the right Mobile Scissor lift table for you Application

Customers often ask us for guidance on which Mobile Scissor Lift Table will be right for them, and the majority of applications that we come across, can be meet by one of our 3 most popular scissor lift tables (see below):








Which one of these three tables is right for you, is of course based on what you need form the Lift table; with this in mind there are four main factors you need to consider:

Lifting capacity – what is the most weight you want the table to lift at any one time?

NB: It is important to note that these capacities are based on an evenly distributed load.

The NB15 has a 150kg capacity; the NB300MAN 300kg and the NB350D, as you probable have guessed is 350kg in capacity.

The required lift height – the NB15 has a raised height of 720mm; the NB300MAN – 1000mm, and the NB350D – 1300mm.

Table Size - this needs to be both large enough to securely handle your load and small enough to manoeuvre in the space that you require the lift table to operate in.

The NB15 has a table size of 700mm x 450mm; the NB300MAN 950x600mm; and the NB350D 910x500mm.

Lowered/Closed Height of the Lift table – this must be low enough for it to accommodate the lowest height that you are loading or unloading heavy items from; especially important if you need to move heavy loads from the ground itself onto the table.

The lowered heights for our 3 most popular tables are thus: 220mm for the NB15; 450mm for the NB300MAN, and 355mm for the NB350D.

As a general rule of thumb; though not always the case: capacity; Lift height, table size and lowered height all tend to rise together, from the Lift Table Manufacturers perspective it would be reasonable to assume that heavier goods will be larger, thus requiring a bigger table size, and as the table size increase so does the length of the scissor legs below them, which in turn give higher lift heights, and lowered heights.

So when considering the ideal table for you application, it is worth bearing this in mind, to maintain practical realism. For example a lift table with a very small table size but very high lift height, would have to have so many sets of scissor legs that it would look like a concertina, and stability may become an issue. Plus an abundance of scissor legs means that the lowered height, may not be particularly low.

If you would like to see more details on these tables or to see our entire range include electric lift table and even Static tables as opposed to the mobile lift tables discussed here.

The humble Lift Table – the Automotive Workshop, Workhorse.

Over many successful years of trading we have supplied our Lift Tables to an abundance of organisations in the business of Automotive production, repair, performance, and Motorsport including several Formula 1, Formula 3 and Formula 4 Race Teams.

The reasons for this are simple:

1. They get their job done with ease.

2. Represent great value for money.

3. Are easy to use, and inexpensive to maintain.

4. They do not require an operator’s licence, (although familiarisation with the product is recommended before use).

5. We have various options available including Manual, powered, mobile lift Tables and Static Lift Tables, and as an optional extra some of these can have table top attachments like Roller Bed and Ball Transfer tops.

6. Robustness and reliability through simple design (even the powered versions have relatively few parts – so less that can go wrong).

7. Compact design – generally speaking Scissor lift Tables have the smallest necessary foot print required to get the job of raising and lowering goods, from low to mid-levels done.


Amongst our Lift Tables Ranges the Mobile ones have proven most popular with our customers in the Automotive industry, as they enable staff to have the flexibility to work in different areas with easy, and minimal set up – they can literally move locations within operating areas and take their work with them.

And in 1st place among all of our Lift Tables, the one most popular one with Automotive and Motorsport customer is the NB300MAN.


The NB300MAN is a Manual Mobile Scissor Lift Table which raises and lowers via the turning of a central screw, as opposed to a hydraulic pump, the two main benefits of this are that:

  • - It eliminates “Hydraulic creepage” where over long periods of time as pressure in the pump can reduce, hydraulic lift tables can lower.
  • - Changes in the height of the table top can be changed more minutely so that Automotive Engineers can get the table/worktop to “just the right height”.


A key point to remember when using mobile scissor lift tables is to ensure that they are on level ground with an evenly distributed load, and that when moving them you do so with caution - Remember your lift table is a workhorse not a “Prancing Horse”.

If you need a tried and tested, precision lift table/ work station in your workshop, then give us a call on: FREEPHONE: 0800 038 9858

“For the want of a Heel Pin”

The Humble Heel Pin, is a simple, inexpensive item that serves a vital purpose – it can keep your forklift attachments like Forklift Access Platforms (also Forklift Mounted Jibs and Hooks) in place so that the Attachment, Forklift and most importantly their users are safer, furthermore it enables your business is to operate correctly; so that you can continue to keep your own customers happy.  To paraphrase Benjamin Frankin: 

For the want of a Heel Pin the Access Platform was lost,
For the want of an Access Platform the Vital Maintenance was lost,
For the want of Vital Maintenance the Warehouse was lost,
For the want of the Warehouse the Customer’s Order was lost,
For the want of the Customer’s Order the Customer was lost,
And all for the want of an Access Platform Heel Pin.

Heel Pin 

So when you buy a Forklift Access Platform; you may want to tick the box to add a spare Pin Kit to your order, because you never know when someone will lose one of the original Heels Pins that come with your Access Platform.

Which Lift Table – The right Scissor Lift Table for the job

When purchasing a Scissor Lift Table there are some general requirements to consider, for example do you need it to be:

Mobile or Static?

This is the most obvious part of the search to narrow down suitable Scissor Lift Tables for your requirements. Do you need to transfer the goods from one location to another or just from one level to another?




Manual or Powered?

The question to ask yourself here is how often do you require the table to lift – the more often the more likely you will need a Powered Scissor Lift Table. Note that there are both Mobile and Static Manual and Powered Scissor Lift Tables.

Once you know the general type of Scissor Lift Table that you are interested in, you then need to consider: the weight it needs to lift; the table size you require to accommodate the load and the height that the load needs to be lifted to.  Finally you may also need to consider the lowered height of the table, as goods will need to be lifted onto the table.

Check out all of the options HERE.
