Levrack Mobile Workstation Review
Levrack Mobile Workstation Review
Levrack, a prominent U.S. manufacturer specializing in high-end storage systems, generously provided me with their 30” x 55” mobile workstation for a comprehensive review.
As the proud owner of Levrack’s industrial grade rolling shelf storage system, my expectations for the mobile workstation were naturally high.
I can confidently say that I was not disappointed. The Levrack mobile workstation is an exceptionally sturdy and heavy-duty unit, impressing me with its robust design from the moment I laid eyes on it.
For those familiar with my channel, the importance of mobility in my workshop cannot be overstated. With limited space, having all woodworking tools and tables on casters allows me to store them efficiently against the wall or create an open center space as needed.
Moreover, a mobile workshop facilitates thorough cleaning, floor refinishing, and effortless rearrangement of the shop’s floor plan for enhanced efficiency.
Constructed with solid steel interlocking parts, powder-coated in black, the entire system boasts durability. Featuring 4 side rails, 2 end rails, a wire decking shelf, and a heavy steel top, the Levrack mobile workstation stands out.
The table legs include a flat pad ¬¬with four holes for optional caster mounting or floor bolting. Each caster, with a 600 lb. capacity, is equipped with a locking brake and a grease fitting for maintenance.
The workstation includes adjustable-height rails, and a drop-in lower wire-decking shelf. With adjustable rails, it provides a maximum storage height of 20” with casters and 22” without casters. The side panel allows a 21” maximum height for sliding items from the side.
Floor Space Under Shelf
When assembled with casters, the shelf sits 10-1/2” off the floor in its lowest setting, offering additional floor storage or facilitating cleaning. The side panels feature fixed upper and lower support rails, providing different clearance heights.
The lower rail has a floor clearance of:
• 14-1/4” clearance height with casters installed.
• 8” clearance height without the casters.
Assembly is a breeze, with no fasteners except for optional caster mounting. Keyholes in the side leg panels and tabs in the horizontal supports ensure a secure and sturdy attachment. The absence of fasteners makes disassembly and reassembly easy for storage, relocation, or transport.
Levrack offers a 4-foot model at 54 inches long and an 8-foot model at 102 inches long, both standing 42 inches tall. The workstation tops come in 30”, 36”, and 48” depth configurations.
Field Modifications | Altering Height | Adding A Vise
I customize all my shop tables to match my Delta Unisaw table height for versatility. Despite the Levrack workstation measuring 36-1/4” tall, with wheels adding 6-1/2” (42-3/4” total), I successfully adjusted it by cutting 8” off the side panel legs.
This modification eliminated the top horizontal, side support rod, which provides structural support to the table and assists it from racking. This table height moved the bottom shelf supports 8 inches closer to the workstation top and while the table doesn’t really wobble, my plan is to weld the support rods back on.
Future modifications will include welding metal plating and angle brackets for bolt-mounting a woodworking vise and possibly a metal vise.
Room For Improvement
While the Levrack mobile workstation is undeniably durable and industrial grade, there’s room for improvement. The shelf rails could be reduced in size to maximize storage space under the table, allowing users to gain more space, or potentially add an extra shelf.
The current size of the shelf rails, match the worktable supports and at 2-3/4” x 6” deep, limit front storage height. Narrowing them by 3 inches could provide more flexibility in storage options.
With my field modification, after cutting 8-inches off the legs I now only have 12” max storage height from the front. If that shelf rail were 3-inches narrower, I’d get 15-inches of storage height from the front of the table.
Priced at $1200, the reviewed mobile workstation may seem steep, but the investment is justified by the robust and reliable system it offers.
In summary, the Levrack mobile workstation stands out as a U.S.-made, industrial-grade, heavy-duty worktable. Easy assembly, tool-free shelf adjustments, smooth rolling, secure locking casters – it’s undoubtedly the most durable and robust workstation in my shop.
