Default Need of an elevator

Hello folks. I have a problem. Maby you can help me. I need a somekind of an elevator. I need it to get customers furniture rised up to a preferable working hight. The "riser" cant be very big since my shop is quite tiny. Obwiously its somekind of a table but what kind of a mechanism would it have? Please help the man in the slope

This trolley is like the one that I used in my TV repair business to remove the heavy TV from the vehicle, roll it into the workshop where it would be transferred to one of many mobile benches.

These should give you a few ideas, and the cost could be kept quite low, especially if you used a hand chain hoist, rather than electric. Might want to check out some of the other videos, you might come up with something you like even more. Best I can come up with.

What are the weight and heights of what you need to lift, Esko?
eg. 150 lbs. from flat on the ground to table height of 30" ?

A motorcycle lift would allow furniture to go from floor level to workbench height or almost workbench height and can lift 750-1000 lbs. Since so many people own motorcycles you can likely find one of these lifts used for a good price.

Yes Dan. That's the max aproximent hight of a dinner table but if I made the right measures 150lb=68kg it will propably be much less. I'm interested in what ideas you have to offer Theo. I'll be back with your hints(i'm in the shop). Hey Charley that was a good idea. Is the movement with the motorcycle lifter smooth and elegant or one hard pull? I really hope it wouldn't cost to much. In Finland everybody should be a miljonare... Everything is so expencive. An example. i was searching for a chip collector(the big thing with 4-6" tubes). I found a nice looking Finnish made machine. You never guess what it costed. Not more than 3400. It was the basic model.

I think, for a pro like you, the first link should tell enough.
