BendPak introduces new full-rise scissor lifts

BendPak has introduced the new SP-7XE Series of full-rise scissor lifts. They are rated for a capacity of 7,000 lbs. and can raise most cars and light trucks nearly six feet. BendPak says these lifts are made for shops with space constraints.

Floor- and flush-mount (SP-7XEF) models of this frame-engaging lift are available. They fold flat when not in use. 

“The SP-7XE Series is a great choice for shops with limited space or those that don’t need a lift all the time,” explains Sean Price, BendPak director of sales operations. “Most people can work comfortably under an SP-7XE, and its open-center design makes rolling equipment under the vehicle easy. Since there are no posts, technicians have full access to the sides of the vehicle, without worrying about door dings. When work is done, it collapses fully out of the way, so the bay can be used for other tasks.” 

SP-7XE Series lifts are installed without a cross member. Instead, reinforced steel at the base and along the top of the runways provide the structural support. The expanded base of the lift has a heavy, boxed-steel formed frame. 

The company also notes the following features: An operator stand allows releasing the pneumatic safety locks from a safe distance without any manual lifting of release arms or latches. The locks disengage when the lift lowers automatically. Multiple locking positions are provided. The locks engage or disengage at each position with the movement of the scissor lift frames. 

Each SP-7XE Series lift comes with installation and maintenance instructions along with graphic safety decals, maintenance decals, a vehicle lifting point guide and a safety instruction placard to train personnel on proper safety procedures and maintenance guidelines, BendPak said.
