Northern Industrial Tools Hydraulic Table Cart - 500-lb. Capacity
I bought this to transport sculpture from my car to a distant site, but found that just getting the table into and out of my car was a hassle ...perhaps I needed a hand truck to transport the lift table.!....it is awkward and heavy. Inside the studio, however it is very handy - moves easily and is very useful at different heights.

Useful little gadget
I hurt my leg recently and need a hydraulic lift to help moving things around. Did a lot of online research and finally decided on this model.
The table is small enough to move along a very narrow hallway in my house but strong enough to carry my required maximum load. I can maneuver it very easily up and down a 10 grade ramp. The frame seems very strong, no wobbling on the wheels.
Since there are several complaints about the leakage, I did a stress test by placing 5 bags of salt pellets (50 lbs each) at the maximum height for three days with no visible leakage.
This is enough for a 5 stars in my book.

Don't have to lift anymore!!
I use it to lift buckets full of manure to dump in the spreader, it works like a charm!! just pump, lift and dump!! It sure saves me lot of work. So far it looks well made and sturdy.

This table is great. Not just because it works as advertised but because it is extremely solid and well built. I was surprised it came completely assembled except for 3 bolts which took 2 minutes to put on. Solid, solid tool. I use it to lift my motorcycles. It's lowest height is plenty low to slide ride under the frame and lift it to a comfortable working height. The table is stable enough to remove one of the wheels without tilting over.

Good but not great
The table was exactly what I needed.
But, the pedal that releases hydraulic pressure was bent during shipping.
I tried to straighten it out, but it broke.
I made one that will NEVER break.

A BACK SAVER - Everyone should have one!
About a year and a half ago I messed-up all of the disks in my lower back while helping a friend work on a remodeling problem. After several months of not being able to do much of anything I bought one this so I could start working on projects again. I use it for everything now, I now longer work on anything bent over. I've used it to move heavy furniture, tools, and small engines. Wish I had thought of it sooner, my back would probably not be as bad now.

This is a great lift for something not too large. I used it to lift a window unit a.c. and hold it in place while I installed it. It is great if you don't have to lift something really high. This worked out great for me.

Excellent Handy table
Got this to use for laying my tools out and parts while working under vehicles while up on my garage lift. This is perfect for that and the ability to adjust the height with a hydraulic foot pump jack is quick and easy. The large wheels makes it easy to roll and two of them have locks so table will not move from where you want it. For the money this is one excellent deal!

Couldn't be happier
I love this cart. It does exactly what I purchased it for and I've used it on a hundred other things also. Note, this cart is VERY heavy. Everything seems pretty well constructed, however there is some flex in the handle when hauling a real heavy load, I'd prefer a bit more strength there, although I haven't had any problems. Moving heavy items from ground level up to my workbench, and from my workbench into the back of my truck is a piece of cake now.
