The Power Lift system for the 5500 & 5550 HiTorque bench mills functionally replaces the Z-Axis manual hand wheel that is used to raise and lower the mill head. Using the Power Lift system is really easy, just press the switch up or down and release, and you are done. It is much faster than using the hand wheel, and much easier on your shoulder.

There is a small knob for manual Z-axis movement giving it the ability to make fine adjustments manually. Does not interfere with Z-axis DRO use.

High-torque motor which generates about 75 - 79 dB of sound.
