Hydraulic Lift

Our hydraulic lift has been designed for applications where height and positional adjustments are required. A classic example of a hydraulic lift in action is when the height of your chair is adjusted at the hairdressers. A foot pedal is used to release the internal oil that raises the seat height. Other common applications for this product include adjusting the height and positions of backrests on hospital beds, treatment couches, similar medical equipment and lifting platforms.

What does a hydraulic lift do? 

The hydraulic lift provides an ideal solution when you need to adjust the height and position of an application easily. 

The foot peal can be pumped to raise the height of the object or pressed to release the oil and lower to the desired position.

What are the key benefits of a hydraulic lift? 

  • Simple operation, lifting with a single lever 
  • No power supply required 
  • Lifts up to 900kg 
  • Nine models available 
  • Easy installation 
  • Maintenance free 


How does a hydraulic lift work? 

Each hydraulic lift is fitted with a pedal which is used to raise or lower the height of the application. To lift the load, the foot pedal has to be depressed through an arc of approximately 45 degrees several times until it reaches the required height by the operator. To lower the load (or compress the hydraulic lift), the foot pedal is simply moved upwards by approximately 10 degrees.
