Spuddy, It looks kinda low; what is the height of the surface of the table from the floor at maximum hydraulic extension? We think 28 to 34 inches is optimum, but we would accept 24", if all other criteria were met. It certainly has a good, sturdy, Industrial look.

I believe its a brake. I found it on Facebook marketplace. It is about 80 miles from here. The top is not exactly level so I need to see if that can be over comb.

Tracy, I will ask for a height measurement before I decide to go look at it.

This is a photo of how the top is attached. I was just told it raises up an additional 20.

Maybe 4? I need one of those things in my shop to move around the Alamo parts.

Might work at that DD. We will however have to dress it up a little with faux 19th century riveted iron banding, an era appropriate color scheme, and maybe paint the wheel shrouds too.
Wonder how well it would handle the stresses of shooting the gun?

Douglas, Looks like a very useful lift to have in your shop, but ours is so small, as you have seen, that there would be no room to maneuver it. If it had the improvements of which little seacoast writes, not only would the strength and toughness be measurably augmented, but most likely manueverability also.

I must have been on drugs when I posted that here. I meant to post it on Michael's Alamo post. Using my super unnatural powers I will copy and paste it over there.
