Mayline VariTask Basic - Hand Crank Adjustable Height Desk

item#: varitaskbasic

The Mayline VariTask Basic hand crank adjustable height desk is a great ergonomic work station that quickly accommodates a wide range of users. The work surface height range, 22 to 33 inches, can be raised or lowered each time someone pulls up a chair. Combined with a sturdy frame and 150 pounds of lifting power, the Mayline Varitask Basic is built for the long haul. Scroll down for more Varitask Basic features and specifications.

Mayline has discontinued this item.
The UPLIFT 900 Sit-Stand Ergonomic Desk (Silver) is a great replacement.

With the popularity of the adjustable height standing desk "on the rise," it's no surprise that there are a few more brands around these days. We've noticed some confusion among customers between our UPLIFT Desk and the similarly-named, but quite different, UpDesk. While the UpDesk PowerUp does offer many of the same features you'll see on UPLIFT desks, it also comes with a much larger price tag. Although you can choose from a handful of laminate colors on most UpDesk models, or a black or white dry-erase top on the UpWrite, UPLIFT offers the largest selection of top colors and sizes on the market - from 1" thick bamboo or GREENGUARD-certified laminate to powdercoated, UV-cured recycled wood, to 14 different species of solid wood, custom-cut to your specifications - UPLIFT fits any budget or decor. The UPLIFT vs UpDesk review chart below will help clear up your questions and show you why UPLIFT is #1.
