Ranger RFJ-3000AL Low Profile Aluminum Racing Floor Jack Video Review

It’s video Friday! Okay, that’s not a really a thing, but regardless–YouTube user and BendPak / Ranger fan RGsedona just got a brand new Ranger RFJ-3000AL Low Profile Aluminum Racing Floor Jack. So he did the only logical thing one does after opening a box of shiny new quality garage equipment—review it on video for all the internet to see. Ever been curious about how low the RFJ-3000AL’s profile really is? Want to see it stacked up against the other floor jack competition? Watch this video!

Also, make sure to check out RGsedona’s other videos and give him a rating if you find them helpful. Thanks for the kind words, RGsedona!

Ranger Wheel Service Showroom Gets A Renovation

February 16th, 2010

Click here for pictures of the Ranger Wheel Service Showroom renovation

It may be winter, but here in Santa Paula, California, we’ve been getting temperatures exceeding 80° F. In short, we’re feeling the spring cleaning bug at BendPak. Maybe that’s why we decided that now was the time to renovate the BendPak / Ranger on-site wheel service showroom.

The Ranger showroom is not only a great place to check out all the latest BendPak / Ranger garage equipment and wheel service automotive products, but it also doubles as our specialized wheel service certification and training center’s classroom. This is where we teach our expert dealers, installers and technicians the proper care and maintenance of BendPak / Ranger wheel service machinery before sending them out in the field to serve you. Eventually, this floor will be covered in essential wheel service equipment like Ranger tire changers, wheel balancers, wheel aligners and even a BendPak X-Rack Alignment Lift.

Make sure to check out the transformation pictures here. As you go through, you’ll notice one of the large new additions to our Ranger wheel service equipment showroom is the checkerboard-style tiles by Swisstrax Garage Flooring. Installation has been a simple, no-hassle process and we’re very proud of how it looks. We figured since the showroom is displaying our wheel service products and garage equipment, we might as well put down the same impressive flooring that we’ve seen in our customers’ actual garages.

Stay tuned to the BendPak blog for more Ranger wheel service showroom updates. Once everything is ship-shape and ready for public viewing, we’ll be there to give you the exclusive grand tour.

Coming Soon: BendPak & Direct Lift Head-To-Head Comparison

February 12th, 2010

Click here for a sneak peek of the BendPak vs. Direct-Lift head-to-head comparison

Here at BendPak, we believe that one of the primary forces pushing our industry forward is friendly competition. And if you’re already familiar with, you know that we like to cut through the marketing fluff and simply put our best up against theirs. With this strategy, we can make sure that our BendPak car lifts and truck lifts are as robust and feature-rich as possible. At the same time, it’s enlightening to see the stark differences in design, materials and manufacturing that can exist between two seemingly identical products.

In our next round of testing to see how BendPak stacks up against the competition, we’ll be comparing a Direct-Lift Pro-Park 8 Plus and a BendPak HD9-XW car lift. Both have got their strong points for sure, so this will be a healthy competition. Sign up for the BendPak Blog RSS feed to stay on top of all the breaking BendPak / Ranger news. Stay tuned and be informed!

Until then, check out the preview pics of this four-post car lift comparison test.

BendPak Receives 2010 Progressive Manufacturing Award

February 11th, 2010

Click here to see BendPak among 100 of the most progressive manufacturers of 2010!

Managing Automation Media (the same folks who interviewed our very own Sina Moatamed last October) just announced their list of Top 100 Progressive Manufacturing Companies for 2010…and BendPak is on it!

It’s an incredible honor to be recognized by the industry as a progressive manufacturing leader. BendPak has long been known as the manufacturer of the world’s best car lifts and automotive service garage equipment, but it’s especially encouraging to also be acknowledged for tight-knit, collective operational excellence in the way that BendPak conducts its internal business processes.

BendPak’s overall commitment to high-quality products, world-class service and unrivaled support is only surpassed by our commitment to our customers. They are the primary source of motivation for everything that we’ve done in providing a consistently outstanding purchasing, product and service experience, especially against the backdrop of the current world-wide economic crisis.

As we proudly take our place alongside such industry giants as Cisco, Pepsi, Northrop Grumman, L’Oréal, IBM, Siemens and Xerox Corp., we want to assure you that we are not ready to rest just yet. Watch us closely for more positive changes in the near future as we continue to plan our goals with one unwavering focus: customer satisfaction and loyalty.

To everyone at Managing Automation Media, thank you very much for this honor.

Well, don't YOU look familiar? Ranger garage equipment as seen on the Adam Carolla CarCast.

More Ranger garage equipment spotted on the Adam Carolla CarCast this week. Just take a look all the Ranger shop equipment in these pics!

Aside from the wheel balancer and tire changer that we reported on about a month ago, this time around we’ve managed to pick out the following items:

You can also see a BendPak / Ranger banner up in the background! See anything we missed? Leave a comment below!

Also, make sure to check out the Ripper: Engine Removal picture gallery, as well as the footage of all the garage action posted below. In this episode of the Adam Carolla CarCast, Sandy, Adam and the CarCast team take the engine out of Sandy’s ’65 Mustang Fastback–AKA The Ripper–in preparation for an unannounced track day. Funny and informative as always.

Keep up the good work, guys! Maybe we should start slapping “As Seen on CarCast” stickers on our Ranger garage equipment, huh? Maybe? No? …Okay!
