Solid Steel Base Plate

You will notice with our 4-post automotive lifts two distinct features; the thickness of the plate, and the location of the post welded on the plate. Having a thick plate prevents warping when welding the posts. By having the post toward the center of the baseplate, (rather than one on the outer edge), it allows for better weight distribution, increasing the stability. While there is an option to anchor the lift, it is recommended that you let the lift remain free standing. Having a free-standing lift provides you with the option to move the lift around inside your garage, or even outside of your garage if conditions allow.

Enhanced Underside Construction

Three new features comprise our enhanced design underneath the power side runway. 1) The cable block rollers have been replaced with durable nylon pads that will not wear as fast as the rollers and are less intrusive, while serving the same purpose. 2) For added convenience, you can adjust the cables underneath from the cable block. 3) The welding of the ramp construction has been enhanced to provide more strength.

Industrial Grade Cables & Pulleys

Cables and pulleys are one of the most important stability features on all 4-post lifts. Using industrial grade steel cables, pulleys, and axles provides less stress on your operating components, increasing their life span.

Primary & Secondary Locking Systems

Our 4-post automotive lifts include a primary safety lock and a secondary slack cable lock. When raising the lift, you will be able to hear the synchronized locks engaging in each laser cut lock position. If a cable were to fail, for any reason, the secondary lock would engage to prevent the lift from falling. Our double lock design, paired with a single point manual release, will provide you with a safer lifting experience.

Designed for Quality, Safety, & Strength

The enclosed posts with laser cut locks provide a solid position for your locks to rest on when working on or storing vehicles. The sliders enhance the stability by encapsulating the post to greatly reduce movement of the lift, which is a common complaint about c-channel lifts.

device for the runways, and overall assembly usually works best with 2-3 people. The
