The Leading Data Center Lift for Infrequent IT Hardware Moves

Moving IT hardware by hand—even lightweight 2U and 4U servers—quickly becomes a physical and logistical pain for all data center operations. The ServerLIFT® SL-350X server handling lift was built with this in mind, offering an intuitive and easy-to-use solution for lighter IT hardware in any data center environment. Server support goes up to 52U high (8 ft or 2.44 m) to allow for easy and safe transport from the dock to the rack, and back again.  It can also traverse ramps and floor gradients (max. angle of 6 degrees.)

The Smart, Affordable Choice

The ServerLIFT® SL-350X data center lift features a durable and ergonomic design in a light-duty unit. The powerful hand crank offers mechanically-advantaged lifting of IT equipment weighing up to 350 lbs (159 kg), meaning a tech no longer has to team up for risky manual lifts. Use the SL-350X data center lift within aisles as narrow as 36″ wide (91 cm). Tilt and angle the server or other equipment by up to 2 degrees using the stable, micro-leveling platform.

Danger in the Data Center​

“Manual material handling is the principal source of compensable injuries in the American workforce, and four out of five of these injuries will affect the lower back.”
– Occupational Safety and Health Administration

“Over 36% of injuries involving missed workdays were the result of shoulder and back injuries…lifting loads over 50 pounds will increase the risk of injury.”
– US Bureau of Labor

No More Manual Lifting

IT equipment manufacturers typically specify using two to four people for handling and installation. Even with four people, manually lifting equipment unnecessarily increases the risk of accident. Manual lifting also delays other critical data center tasks from being performed.

Save Time and Money with ServerLIFT®

Installing servers and related IT equipment by hand is both dangerous and inefficient. Depending on the number of people used to install equipment, data center efficiency can improve by up to 300% when using ServerLIFT® devices instead.

Two salaried employees installing a new piece of rack-mounted equipment weighing 75 pounds*, by hand, provides a perfect example. This task requires 30+ minutes of high-tension work per employee, risking muscle strain, pinched fingers, and other injuries. Conversely, a single tech using a ServerLIFT® data center lift can make the move in 15 minutes with no risk involved.

The ServerLIFT® Guarantee

The SL-350X Super-Duty Lift is backed by a worry-free, 30-day Money-Back Guarantee.


Compact Design

The open design of the SL-350X maintains a minimal footprint while allowing for total accessibility. The lift’s slim 24-inch base navigates narrow aisles and fits through standard-size doorways and elevator doors without tipping. With a tight turning radius and retracting side shelf, operators can move freely around the data center lift and work on either side without having to squeeze through or risk getting hurt. 

Sturdy, Mico-Leveling Platform

The platform of the SL-350X data center lift stays rigid and stable, even when lifting up to 350 lbs. (159 kg). This, along with the user-controlled micro-leveling SmartTILT™ shelf adjustment feature, provides the critical post-to-post alignment needed to precisely rack-mount any server, making installation a breeze.
