A scissor lift table is a type of work platform that is mounted on a telescopic tube to provide an elevated working surface. The working surface can be made up of various materials, including wood, metal, or PVC plastic. Because of their ability to be easily packed away for storage, scissor lift tables are ideally suited for many commercial applications, including warehouses and manufacturing facilities.

- Type of Material
Before purchasing a scissor lift table, determine whether you will be working with wood or with metal or PVC plastic. Scissor lift tables that are made of wood are typically low in cost, but many users complain that they are not as stable as their metal counterparts. On the other hand, scissor lift tables that are made of wood and have been coated with polyurethane or wax provide better stability and shine than those made of natural wood. Scissor lift tables that are made of metal and PVC plastic provide the greatest stability and durability, but they tend to be more expensive than their wooden counterparts
- Size of the Scissor Lift Table
Before buying a scissor lift table, consider the size of the table that you need. The size is measured by determining the dimensions of the table top, including its length and width. Many tables are sized according to how many legs are attached to them. For example, a four-legged table is about three feet in length and two feet in width, while a six-legged table is about five feet in length and two and a half feet wide. However, many users purchase scissor lifts with legs that can be removed; therefore, they can adjust the height at which they are working

Before buying a scissor lift table, consider the type of surface that you are going to use. Many table tops are made of plastic, which makes them ideal for light-duty work. Plastic tables can be wiped down clean with a damp cloth and left to dry before being used again.
Scissor lift tables with wood tops are not as durable and are best suited for heavy duty tasks. Wood tables should be protected by wrapping them in plastic after they have been used to prevent splinters from becoming embedded in their surface. As with plastic tables, wood tables should be wiped down and left to dry before being used again for cleaning

Some tables are shipped with these items attached; however, these accessories must be purchased separately if they are not included in the purchase price of the scissor lift table
