Welcome from Rick and Patti Peterson, owners, and their team at Lake Benton, Minnesota, where the PowerLift enterprise was born! The world’s first production hydraulic door line started here in 1992. Please contact us - we'd be glad to be part of your next door project.

We are your local PowerLift hydraulic door and wall source for any new aviation, commercial, farm, or architectural door or wall you have in mind. PowerLift’s experience is unmatched, having performed tens of thousands of installations since 1992.
We also understand all aspects of replacing old sliding, bifold, fabric or overhead doors with PowerLift retrofits. When we remove old doors, we also expand your existing clear opening height and width. We’ll be happy to stop by, look over your building, and come up with the right answer for a new or retrofit door.
We custom build your PowerLift door right here in our shop! All-welded construction, a PowerLift exclusive, results in an exact fit and a lifetime free from any distortion from fasteners working loose. We deliver and install your door when it’s complete, so you have just one provider from start to finish of your project.
