UTB E-Z Reach Hydraulic Lift & Tilt Tables

To precisely position containers or other items with independent control of lift and tilt, E-Z Reach Lift and Tilt units are ideal. With their exclusive Universal Tilter Base (UTB) they compensate for the shifting center of gravity as loads are tilted.

The open frame top allows the tilting hydraulics to retract within the frame resulting in a lower profile when in the full down position. The UTB also combines a shorter but wider stance for improved stability in a small footprint.

Backsaver Contoured Legs Contoured Legs
With extra width at the pivot point, Southworth's contoured legs combine great strength with lower collapsed height.
Backsaver Flow Control Adjustable Flow Control
Pressure compensated flow control valve with lock out. Preset and locked at 10 F.P.M. maximum lowering speed per ANSI Standard, MH29 where applicable.
Backsaver Torque Tubes Heavy-Duty Torque Tubes
Torque tubes minimize platform twisting and deflection for high degree of rigidity and stability.
Backsaver Bushings Lubricated-for-Life Bushings
All pivot points have hardened pins that operate in lubricated-for-life, virtually maintenance free bushings.
Backsaver Hoses Heavy-Duty Hoses
All Southworth lifts have heavy-duty hoses with burst strength 600% greater than the hydraulic operating pressure.
  • Oversize, Low-Pressure Hydraulic Cylinders
    Low operating pressure extends the life of hydraulic components. Chrome-plated piston rods are corrosion resistant, and cylinder walls are honed.
  • Tell-Tale Return Hydraulic Fluid Line
    Clear plastic return line from cylinder rod bearing to tank gives visual indication of need to repack cylinder and prevents fluid spillage in the event of a bypass.
  • Built In Safety Chock
    Prevents accidental lowering of table during maintenance.
  • Wear Indicating Rollers and Roll Retainers
    Rollers are captured in the base by means of retainers to prevent accidental separation or misalignment. All oversized width tabletops also include an upper set of retainers.

  • Power Units Full JIC Style Continuous Running Power Units* - Continuous running power unit built to JIC specifications.
  • No Coast Valving - Fast acting hydraulic valving, which decreases upward coast, for use where more precise positioning is desired.
  • Minimum Downdrift Valving - Near positive shut-off valving for use where platform must maintain position for extended periods of time.
  • Continuous Running Power Units - Heavy-duty power units with special cooling features. Power unit runs continuously, and valves are actuated to activate lift. Used for extremely high jogs or cycles.
  • Double Acting Cylinders - For special applications where it is necessary to provide both power up and power down.
  • Air Bag Actuation - Inflatable air bag provides limited travel lift actuation. Used where electrical power is not desirable or where only two positions are required.
  • Screw Jack - Lift is actuated by gear motor driven worm or ball screw. For more precise, repetitive positioning or where hydraulics are not desired.
  • Hot and Cold Temperature Hydraulic Packaging - Special sealing and hydraulic fluids for use in hot or cold atmospheres.
  • Velocity Fuse(s)/Excess Flow Protectors - Hydraulic control prevents table free fall in the unlikely event of massive hydraulic failure.
Electronic Control Options:
  • Wall Mounted Push Button - Permanent wall mounted controls for use where a fixed operating station is desirable.
  • Automatic Leveling Package - Optical sensing control positions table and stops travel at any preset height.
  • Maintained Contact Controls - Up/down/emergency stop push button control which stops travel automatically at preset level. (Control button does not have to be held.)
  • Electrical Quick Disconnect - Quick disconnect plugs for use with portable or frequently relocated lifts.
  • Special NEMA Rated Electrical Packages - A variety of electrical packages designed to meet NEMA standards for outdoor, explosion proof, and other installation requirements.
  • Visual or Audible Signals - Lights or bells used to warn personnel when lift is in operation.
  • Travel Limit Switch(es) - Electrical switch stops travel, prevents overtravel, provides height positioning, and can activate associated equipment. Should be used with mechanical stop for fixed lowered height.
  • One-Touch Auto Leveling - Increase productivity in repositioning applications. Raise or lower lifts a specific increment at the touch of a button.
Mechanical Options:
  • Narrow Base - Reduced width base to fit special needs. Must be lagged for stability.
  • Wide Base - Increased width base provides extra stability for wider loads.
  • Sub Bases - Extra base unit increases low height of standard designs. Provides a positive stop at predetermined down level. Frequently used for integration with automated systems.
  • Lifting Eyes - Steel eye bolts allow table to be lifted with hoist. Frequently used in pit mounted applications for ease of installation and maintenance.
  • Lag Plates - Permanently attached plates or angles with bolt holes for lagging tables to floor.
  • Increased Roll Over Capacity - Structural strengthening of table support for use in pit installations where loaded trucks or transporters must traverse the platform in its lowered position.
Portability and Transport Options:
  • Semi-Live Portable - Consists of wheels at one end of base and pull plate at the other, plus wheeled jack handle. Used only for moving table to a new position, and not for transporting materials.
  • Powered Traverse - Hydraulic motor drives two wheels on a single shaft via a chain and sprocket.
  • Vee Groove Wheels - Steel wheels with groove for use with inverted angle or Vee track to provide unidirectional horizontal movement.
  • Flanged Wheels - Steel wheels with flange for use with flat or rail track to provide unidirectional horizontal movement.
  • Casters - A variety of casters, mounting arrangements, and floor locks is available for use where full portability and maneuverability are desired.
  • Push Bar - Hand height bar to facilitate manual movement of wheeled or castered portable units.
Platform Options:
  • Access Plate - Removable or hinged plate in platform surface allows access to power unit and hydraulics when lift is in lowered position.
  • Anti-skid Platform Surfaces - Diamond tread platform surface or abrasive type paint provide better traction for powered vehicles and reduce danger of personnel slipping.
  • Vee Cradle Platform - Vee shaped platform provides centering and secure handling of cylindrical loads, such as rolls.
  • Fork Pockets - Structural fork pockets allow entire unit to be lifted and moved by fork truck.
  • Stainless Steel Platform - Corrosion and damage resistant surface for use with corrosive materials or where frequent wash down is required.
  • Wheel Chock - Counter-weighted wheel chock recessed in table top. Automatically engages as lift raises and prevents wheeled vehicle from rolling in set direction.
  • End-Shifting Platform - Manual or powered platform end-shift used to align loads with other handling systems or operating equipment.
  • Ball Transfer Top - Fixed or retractable ball conveyors for omnidirectional movement of load on platform.
  • Fixed and Removable - Handrails with Snap Chain For use in applications involving personnel lifting. Removable rails allow access from any side when lift is not in use.
