The Original Compact Lift Table

From the American Lifts product line, these industry-leading compact lift tables deliver significant lifting power with exceptional load capacities. With low collapsed heights and small platform sizes, these small work tables are ideal for smaller lift applications, or cramped warehouses with limited floor space.  All models offer captured rollers, two piece self-aligning cylinder, and high impact spiral wound bearings providing superior performance and durability.

The Compact Lift has incredible versatility and reliability. Available with unlimited possibilities for customizing these scissor lifts for a wide range of specialized applications.

  • Travel ranges from 25 to 84 inches 
  • Load capacities from 500 to 12,000 pounds
  • Best lifting speed
  • Long life cycle 

Features and Benefits

Durability and Quality

  • All scissors rollers are captured within structural steel channels to provide excellent load stability
  • High impact, spiral wound bearings at every pivot point provide maintenance-free, rugged resistance to abrasion, impact, and uneven loads.
  • Structural cross-members at every pinned joint in the scissors assembly minimizes leg deflection due to twisting or spreading under high/uneven loading.
  • All hydraulic cylinders contain two-piece, self-aligning piston rods that transmit minimal side forces to the cylinder hinges/pins, significantly reducing wear.
  • Structural steel channels in all upper and lower frames provide additional rigidity and resistance to twisting and bending of the lift under load.
  • Solid steel legs and added stiffeners provide overall stability and straight, repeatable roller tracking as the lift raises and lowers.
  • Joints, the most critical wear points in the lift, feature chrome-plated, 100,000 psi, ultimate-strength pins for premium load strength and long life.
  • Minimum 1/4-inch-thick steel-reinforced platform minimizes deck deflection, maximizes load stability, and greatly extends the life of the platform deck.

Maintenance and Warranty

  • Autoquip offers an industry-best 2 year warranty on all parts as a promise that you've purchased the industry's most reliable scissor lift.
  • One-piece, removable center axle pin adds rigidity to the scissors mechanism and allows easy inspection and maintenance of the axle pin - a task that is virtually impossible on competing brands.
  • On-board maintenance devices enable maintenance crews to safely and effectively block open the scissors during inspection and routine maintenance.
  • Sturdy, semi-transparent polyurethane oil reservoir provides an easily visible method of checking fluid levels and eliminates oil contamination due to rust.
  • Low pressure hydraulic circuit extends the life of all hydraulic components and puts less stress on the electric motor.
  • Double wire braided Parker hydraulic hoses resist wear, abrasion, and leaks.


  • Standard controls are prewired and internal power unit is onboard. Installation simply includes lagging the unit to the ground and connecting to electricity.


  • Hydraulic velocity fuses completely stop lifts in the unlikely event of uncontrolled descent due to sudden hose rupture.
  • Minimum 3:1 structural factor of safety makes these lifts the most structurally sound lift in the industry.
  • Compliance with recognized standards:
    • ANSI MH29.1 - Safety Requirements for Industrial Scissor Lifts
    • NFPA 70 - National Electric Code
    • ASTM - A36 - Structural Steel Standard
    • ANSI Z535 - Safety Labeling Requirements
    • AWS D.1 - Welding Standards
    • Applicable portions of OSHA 29CFR1910 - General workplace safety
