Heavy duty work bench with retractable wheels

Recently a customer of ours came in looking for a heavy duty bench for his shop – something that could be moved if necessary, but would also be rock solid when needed. We made this up for him: a powerful workbench with retractable wheels. A pair of hydraulic jacks, some heavy duty casters and clever fabrication resulted in this beauty:

Got a custom project of your own? Give us a call or stop by and we’ll work out a plan to get it handled.

Norlift sells new and used forklifts, new and used industrial racking, material handling products (think bins, shelving, handtrucks, pallet jacks, etc). And we look good doing it. Not as good as you’ll look buying it, though. We’re already a little jealous of you.

Need wheels or casters? We also do those. We carry everything from furniture glides and casters, to heavy duty industrial casters at Wheel and Caster. For highly entertaining reading on the subject of casters and wheels, check out The Caster Blog.

Home Improvement Chain Closes Store – We Got the Racking!

We’ve been tearing out a home improvement store that closed recently – big warehouse full of racking, wire deck, massive carpet roll displays, and a lot of other odds and ends. The trucks are starting to come into Norlift now.

This is a great deal more inventory than we’d like to have on hand, and we’re wanting to get it moving! Give us a call today at 535-1776 for more information.
