Dumbwaiters

Modern Applications for an Old Technology

Matot's Core Product - its what we have been building since 1888

Dumbwaiters are typically the most economical choice for a lift system.  Available in any size configuration up to:  39″ deep x 39″ wide x 48″ high and usually carrying 100-750 lbs.  Dumbwaiters can stop at counter height for hand loading or floor level for carts and hand trucks.  If the dimensions you need exceed those listed above,  you probably want to view our Material Lift Products, which handle heavier capacities and larger dimensions.  Matot will custom engineer and manufacture any variation of dimensions at no extra charge.  No company has more expertise or knowledge than us.  We are here to guide you through the design process.
