Northern Industrial Tools Hydraulic Table Cart - 500-lb. Capacity
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.

Rugged but heavy
The Cart is perfect for our needs. We lift and transport printers weighing up to 250 Lbs. The problem we have is lifting the cart into our truck. It weighs almost as much as do the printers. The Base could easily support over a thousand Lbs. If I were to make any suggestions, it would be to use thinner guage angle iron on the base where the wheels attach. But that's the only drawback I can see.

Handy Hydraulic Table Cart
Like- I purchased this hydraulic table cart for aid in quick changeovers of 70 lb. press dies in my manufacturing facility. With the exception of coming up short by 2-3 inches on a few of my machines this handy little cart has worked out perfectly. The table top has ample room to accept the used die (and the new die) prior to installation of the new die...and it is also rigid enough to hold the (2) dies at full height with absolutely no strain to any of the cart's mechanism.
Dislike- The only thing that I did not like about this hydraulic table cart was the assembly required to install the foot petal release for the hydraulic jack. It took a few tries to final determine where the petal should be set for optimal performance. Maybe a pin or some sort of locator would help in assembly.

The cart works very well and comes in handy for more than just lifting. It is strong and rolls very easily with a load. Its great for lifting cabinets into position and heavy items be welded. Definetly would recomend this item.

A Top Productivity Tool
This cart is a fantastic work and back saver. I purchased it to move a large biological safety cabinet at work and it paid for itself within 15 minutes. That's how long it took two people to move that big cabinet out of one lab, down the hall, and into another lab. The folks working in the lab were amazed. They said that the last guy who moved it spent 3 hours with a pallet jack, cinder blocks, and 4x4's and almost dropped it.
We use this cart at least once a week and it pays for itself every time in productivity and safety gains.
Our only complaint is that the steel foot pump pedal sticks out far enough that it can hit your shins as you push the cart.
