BendPak Introduces New Two-Post Lift

BendPak introduced its AP Series, a two-post lift with patent-pending features designed to make lifting internal combustion and electric cars, trucks and vans safer, easier and more efficient.

The AP Series features 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 on more vehicles than previous BendPak products.

The AP Series’ triple-telescoping nested swing arm design lets the inner arms retract fully through the back of the front arm assembly and around the arm pin of the rear arms to maximize retraction and extension.

The arms terminate with dropped-end pad receivers that step down even lower. These receivers can accommodate a wide range of stackable adapters and two-stage spin-up screw pads to reach countless lift points.

According to the company, two-post lift swing arm restraints minimize the chance of arms shifting during vehicle loading and service. The company said its Automatic Swing Arm Restraint System (ASARS) prevents dangerous, unplanned movement of the lift arms when raising and lowering the lift, as well as throughout the vehicle service process. The patent-pending 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 pounds of side force.

The third feature introduced in the AP Series is its automatic safety lock system. The company says this patented system ensures the safety locks/load-holding devices engage automatically while the lift is going up and makes releasing the locks for descent as easy as pushing a button. All structural load-holding components are housed within the lift column. The company said this allows for clearer space between lifts when installed side-by-side in tight work bays and streamlines handling, transportation and installation.

AP Series lifts are the most customizable and offer the convenience of wide or narrow installation to fit most bays, BendPak says. Bi-Metricm swing arms enable both symmetric and asymmetric lifting from a single lift. Each AP Series lift comes with a standard adapter package for precise engagement with a wide range of vehicles.

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

The 10AP, 10AP-168, 10APX and 10APX-181 are each been third-party tested and ALI Certified to meet industry safety and performance standards, BendPak said.
