RP50FJC Fruit Juice and Oil Filter Crusher by Ranger

March 29th, 2017

Click here to view the product page.

You’ve seen oil filter crushers before. Ranger Products makes several, such as our renowned 25-ton monster crusher, the RP50FC. What you haven’t seen is an oil filter crusher that doubles as a fruit juice maker. Finally, no more switching from kitchen appliance to garage tool, and back to kitchen appliance. Who has the time? No one in our kitchen. The high-capacity RP50FJC allows operators to crush up to 10 small pieces of fruit at once!

This combo fruit juice and oil filter crusher is the first and only tool of its type, so the world-class safety certifications and quality standards of virtually all other Ranger products are less than an afterthought—to us, they don’t even apply! This idea has been rejected so many times, it’s even become a punching bag for the industry. The testimonials say it all!

One guy wrote, “Why are you doing this?”

Another said, “Is it safe for fruit to be crushed by the same device that removes hazardous oil from used oil filters?”

Within five minutes of seeing the crusher demoed in his store, one of our distributors said, “Get the hell out of my office.”

The RP50FJC is new, so we’re not surprised that no one really understands it yet. New things are often scary and hard to understand, like making fruit juice with a converted oil filter crusher. Think of what it was like to be one of the first people to see math. “Numbers?” They must have said. “That’s not going to catch on.” Well, look around you! Math is everywhere nowadays!

We have no reason to believe the RP50FJC is going to revolutionize the industry the way math revolutionized numbers, but we’re counting on it! In fact, we’re so sure you’ll love your new combo fruit juice and oil filter crusher, we’re devoting most of our earnings from 2016 into marketing the RP50FJC. If this doesn’t work out, we won’t even be able to afford therapy. YIKES!!!

But that’s confidence. And confidence means juice. It’s good business to be confident, and it’s good juice to be in business. And that spells R-A-N-G-E-R. Whatever you do, don’t overlook the cost RP50FJC combo juice and oil filter crusher. Only $9,999.99!!!

Is it safe?

Just repeat after me: Ranger makes juice!

Transform Your Garage with a Gunmetal Gray Car Lift

November 23rd, 2016

Since we announced the BendPak color shift from blue to Gunmetal Gray, we’ve gotten a huge response over the web. We didn’t make this choice blindly, of course; we spent months gathering opinions from customers and distributors, and overwhelmingly, the public call was for us to make the change to Gunmetal Gray. So, who are we to argue? We’re excited about this change because it marks a new chapter in BendPak’s storied history as one of the most successful and longest-running car lift manufacturers in the world.

While a minority out there has been hesitant to accept the change to Gunmetal Gray, we’re sure that when people see what these beautiful lifts look like in their garages, they’ll lose their fears very quickly. To help that process along, we’ve taken some four-post lift photos our customers sent us recently and digitally changed the lifts from blue to Gunmetal Gray. Hopefully this demonstrates why we’re making the change.

The overall contrast in this garage—comparing the two pictures below—is very clear. The original blue pops out and leaves a very obvious visual footprint in the garage. When you compare this to the effect of the Gunmetal Gray, you see the latter is much more at home in the shop. The BendPak blue will always have a place in our hearts, but it’s shocking how cleverly the Gunmetal Gray blends with the DeLoreans. We think the new color also lends itself better for showrooms. If you’re displaying a rare or classic car, like a DeLorean, you want a solid, functional car lift that looks great but doesn’t draw attention to itself.

In the shots below, notice how your eye is quickly drawn to the vehicles. In the past, when we were a younger and smaller company, we liked the extra attention on ourselves. Now that we’ve made our mark in the industry and you folks know that BendPak stands for the utmost in quality and reliability, we trust our name alone makes the difference for our customers—more than any color ever could—and that’s something that’s never going to change.

Yet another great example why Gunmetal Gray is a better color for servicing and displaying classic custom rebuilds. The original car lift nearly pops off the page; in fact, the vibrant blue appears almost as prominent as the car itself. That’s not necessarily what you want if you’re into classic builds. The Gunmetal Gray version, in our opinion, is much sleeker and sexier, especially because it helps emphasize the car. The individual who sent us this photo was initially skeptical but pleased with the result when we showed him what his garage would look like in the new color scheme. Can’t say we’re surprised!

The Camaro-lover in this last example has two beautiful cars that look great on our blue lift. With Gunmetal Gray, it’s clear BendPak is moving itself out of the limelight. Typical garage environments don’t necessarily demand a bright blue car lift to announce itself at all times, but if you do want the blue, we will be retaining it for special orders. That means there will be an extra service fee, but we always do our best to accommodate everyone’s preferences.

BendPak Recreates Color Scheme for Brand New Look

November 7th, 2016

gray2Santa Paula, California – November 2016 – When BendPak designed its earliest car lift models, they were painted Burgundy to match the tastes of that era. Years later, in the late 1980s, the company redesigned its brand and color scheme with the brilliant “BendPak blue” that defines their look today. This bold blue has helped solidify BendPak’s reputation and brand and has become a staple in the automotive aftermarket. After nearly three decades, BendPak intends to reinvent its colors to keep their brand evolving and relevant.

BendPak is updating from their classic blue to what they anticipate will become the next color staple that the automotive industry will come to adopt: a gunmetal gray with white and yellow accents. The look will remain consistent across all of BendPak’s car lift models.

“Our bold blue made BendPak the most recognizable car lift brand in the industry, but everyone around the world has adopted the same look,” said Jeff Kritzer, BendPak Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing. The company recognizes bright blue-colored lifts can contrast with certain franchise, business or residential livery colors.

That’s not to say the design is meant to make BendPak more invisible in garages. The color scheme update is part of a marketing trend in BendPak to let the company name sell itself rather than force brand recognition through slogans and colors. “We surveyed both our dealer and customer base, and the overwhelming majority felt the new color scheme adds a touch of class,” Kritzer stated.

The company believes this change in direction offers a message of strength and is part of their commitment to keep expanding into new markets. BendPak President Don Henthorn said, “BendPak is going to look as modern as any new technology that’s out there. We’re growing as a company, and the BendPak name is what people really want to see on their equipment to know they’re buying the best.”

Ranger Products Releases RP-50FC 25-Ton Capacity Oil Filter Crusher

July 18th, 2016

Santa Paula, California – July 2016 –
crusher renderRanger Products is debuting a new oil filter crusher that flattens used oil filters with over 50,000 lbs. of crushing force, reducing them to 20% of their original size. The Ranger RP-50FC transforms used oil filters, normally regulated by the EPA, into general refuse by squeezing out 95% of residual oil and transforming the used filter into a compact puck that can then be disposed of as normal waste or recycled for profit. By removing virtually all of the residual oil, operators are able to eliminate EPA mandates and separately recycle both the used oil and crushed oil filters. With recycled waste oil realizing prices as high as a dollar per gallon and recycled scrap metal prices on the rise, the Ranger RP-50FC oil filter crusher earns business owners a return on investment over time.

The Ranger RP-50FC comes with many built-in features to ensure convenient use and safe operation of the oil filter crusher. Simple operator controls are ergonomically placed to minimize operator reach and movement during faced-paced, high-repetition work. A fully automatic cycle feature allows operators to load filters, push a button and walk away. Also included is a remote electric foot switch that allows convenient, hands-free operation of all basic controls. A built-in automatic safety door with a reinforced transparent viewing window stops everything if and when the door opens. Equipped with a rugged stand, the RP-50FC accommodates collection drums ranging from 5 to 55 gallons. Powered by a 2 HP, 208 – 240V, 50 / 60 Hz, 20A single-phase, electric/hydraulic pump.

New Tuf‐Pads™ Will Change the Way You Lift

June 13th, 2013

Pads-Blog

When you think of a BendPak two-post lift, you probably picture a big, beefy two-post frame surrounding a huge truck that is suspended majestically off the ground. The funny thing is, all of that relies on four things you probably didn’t think about—the contact pads. We offer many options here at BendPak, but by far the most popular has been our rubber pads.

But since these points of contact are so important, we started to ask ourselves: can we do better? And as usual, when we put our minds to it, we came up with something pretty darn great.

The problem with natural rubber is that it can degrade over time and, in extreme conditions, be hurt by certain chemicals. And even if that doesn’t happen, the material can be gouged or cut. But that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. After all, its malleability is part of what makes natural rubber so grabby.

So after trying several popular compounds, our engineers hit on the perfect new material for our two-post pads—something at least as grabby as natural rubber but superior in strength and overall toughness: Polyurethane. These new Polyurethane two-post contact pads are so tough in fact, that we are proud to call them Tuf-Pads™.

You see, they use a specially formulated hardness elastomer that we designed specifically to resist cutting, abrasions, and gouging—even those tricky chemicals and solvents–but without sacrificing that necessary stickiness that you get from rubber. And not only that, we made new Tuf-Pads™ extra durable to extend the life of the contact pads, taking your investment even further than you thought.

Like we said, those contact pads are small when compared to the rest of the two-post car lift structure, but they can make all the difference. So here at BendPak, we sweat the little stuff so you won’t have to.

Check out the Tuf-Pads™ product page for more information. They come included with new BendPak two-post lifts or you can buy them online. And while you’re there, check out all the other great accessories from BendPak designed to make automotive service a breeze.
