BendPak releases two-post lift

BendPak has released the new PL-6000DC two-post parking lift, which it says is designed to be ganged together with shared columns so more lifts can fit in a smaller area, indoors or outside. 

The new lift has a rated capacity of 6,000 pounds and can be installed in a typical 8-foot parking space. BendPak says it accommodates a wide range of vehicles, including SUVs, light trucks, sedans and sports cars, and offers a combination of short- and long-term parking on the same lift.

“When you’re constrained by space, you want to use what you have as efficiently as possible. The PL-6000DC’s compact footprint and ganged column design lets you optimize a parking area. Plus, it’s easy and economical to operate,” says Sean Price, BendPak director of sales operations.

The PL-6000DC uses dual telescoping direct-drive hydraulic cylinders to deliver better reliability, smoother operation, and lower maintenance than lifting chains or screw mechanisms, BendPak said. The platform can be stopped at various heights to fit a range of vehicles and ceiling heights. Automatic load-holding devices automatically engage as the parking lift raises, preventing sudden free fall in the unlikely event of a component failure. 

Additional safety features of the BendPak PL-6000DC lift include automatic locking during a power outage, emergency stop button, and upper limit switch.
