Do you want one with a scissor lift type arrangement, or with a "prongs" arrangement (more like a forklift)

For instance, the scissor types have a nice flat surface that remains level, so you can slide stuff off a table onto the lift, or from the lift onto a table. But you don't have access "under" the platform.

    we're using an older genie lift as a server lift currently.  which as
    you can guess isn't designed for servers.  the most recent set of
    compute nodes we purchased are pretty much impossible to lift by man
    (even if that was a good idea) and the genie lift is getting awkward
    in our cramped data center given it's design and server weight.

    i can certainly google for one, but they all look great in the
    glossies.  does anyone want to provide some real world info?
