BendPak introduces new AP Series of two-post lifts

BendPak introduces its AP Series of two-post lifts, which the company says are designed to make lifting internal combustion and electric cars, trucks and vans safer, easier and more efficient. 

Features of the new series of lifts described by BendPak include:

  • A swing arm design that offers both greater under-vehicle clearance and better extension and retraction to enable technicians to reach the OEM-recommended lift points.
  • BendPak’s Automatic Swing Arm Restraint System (ASARS), which prevents dangerous, unplanned movement of the lift arms when the lift is being raised and lowered, as well as throughout the vehicle service process. The design offers twice as much holding grip as traditional systems, with 360 degrees of forged steel teeth securing the arms in place to withstand more than 2,000 lbs. of side force. 
  • An automatic safety lock system that the safety locks/load-holding devices engage automatically while the lift is going up, with only a button push needed to release the locks for descent.

The series includes three 10,000-pound capacity models. The standard 10AP offers 73 inches of lifting height and an overhead beam height of just 145 inches for shops with lower ceiling clearances. The 10AP-168 has the same 73 inches of lifting height plus a crossbar that’s positioned two feet higher to accommodate high-roof cargo vans. The 10APX is a high-rise model offering 79.5 inches of lifting height with a 157-inch top beam. The 10APX-181 maintains 79.5 inches of lifting height and increases the top beam height to 181 inches.

The 10AP, 10AP-168, 10APX and 10APX-181 have each been third-party tested and ALI certified to meet industry safety and performance standards.
