Alignment Lift System Offers 14,000 lbs. of Pure Lifting
BendPak's HDS-14LSX alignment lift is engineered to meet the strenuous demands of your toughest professional lifting jobs. Designed into the HDS-14LSX alignment lift is a long list of crucial features that improve safety, durability and productivity, ensuring your BendPak is the absolute best car lift you can buy.
This is the sturdy beast you want as the backbone of your shop, especially if you service large, low ground-clearance vehicles. Our alignment system features front turn plates and rear slip plates built right into the runways. The wheels always respond to your adjustments with no resistance or hassle. We call it “free-floating.” You’ll find it unbelievably easy.
Multi-caster slip plates in the back and turn plates in the front allow for extremely precise, free-floating alignment.
Dual, recessed turn plate pockets allow you to position the corrosion-resistant, galvanized turn plates in the location best suited for individual vehicle positioning. These turn plates provide more clearance for equipment installations.
Dual-hub cable sheaves
This BendPak alignment lift comes standard with robust 10.5” diameter cable sheaves within the runway and cross tubes and 2.25” diameter sheave axles that are equally durable. Both contribute to the longevity and low-maintenance cost of owning and operating your lift.
A 1/2” diameter 6 x 25 aircraft-quality stainless-steel lifting cable runs through each of the four columns. Designed for non-stop use and totally resistant to rubbing and other abrasions (e.g., weather, chemicals, hydraulic oil).
Adjustable height locking positions
Get your alignment lift to just the right height. No need to reach or bend for the turn plates, as every few inches, each post column features a lock position for your convenience.
Grease fittings are included on every BendPak lift, so you can focus on the alignment of your wheels without worrying about the lubrication of your cable sheaves. BendPak makes it easy to keep an eye on your grease nipples, which only require periodic maintenance. Just peek inside the structure before, during or after using your alignment lift to see how the fittings are doing.
In the extremely unlikely event of a hose rupture, BendPak’s unique hydraulic flow divider provides a safe, even descent, thus keeping your alignment lift structure safe and ready to go after you address the situation. We highly doubt you will ever encounter this situation with your lift.
Spring-loaded safety locks
As the alignment lift rises to your preferred service level, springs engage the locks into place at each ladder position. The adjustable nature of the spring-loaded, multi-locking structure offers you the comfort of knowing that you’re safe to lift, even if there’s a slight slope in your garage.
Push-button pneumatic lock release
A simple push-button pneumatic lock release makes lowering operations simple and fast. Aircraft-quality stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders provide years of trouble-free service.
Secondary lock system
A slack-cable lock is your backup safety mechanism that’s ready at all times to shut off the alignment lift in the event of dangerous cable slack.
All cables, sheaves and airlines, as well as the single hydraulic cylinder, run internally through the lift structure. This optimizes aesthetics and safety in way that has come to define the BendPak brand.
Electric-hydraulic power system
No maintenance necessary! The electric-hydraulic power system features ergonomically located controls for easy operator access during repetitive daily use.
Even if your alignment lift runways get wet or oil-stained, your vehicles will rotate on the turn plates without slipping off the ramps. The runway surface is rugged enough to hold vehicles, no matter what other pushing, bumping and other craziness occurs in the shop.
Longer approach ramps
Longer ramps make it easier to load low ground-clearance vehicles onto the car lift structure. Alignments on these vehicle types are no hassle, and of course, larger vehicles can glide on just as easily.
Flexible protective conduit
An extra-tough yet flexible conduit protects all airlines and hydraulic hoses from daily wear. Your alignment lift is safer and operations can be handled more confidently when you know your cables won’t deliver sudden, unfortunate electric shocks, ruptures or fluid leaks.
Rolling bridge jacks
Optional rolling jacks make a great addition to increase service capacity. Bridge jacks raise the front or back of vehicles, so wheel and brake service can be performed without moving to a two-post lift or scissor lift. Use two jacks to raise the entire car. Telescoping arms and frame contact pads extend over runways and target the vehicle frame’s lifting points. Runways are fully adjustable for different tread widths. Three locking positions offer additional operator control.
Choose extended frames
The HDS14LSXE is designed for extended-length vehicles, such as trucks and vans. The runways and overall length are extended by 30”. With runways now 229” in length, some very long vehicles can fit easily on the car lift. If your service bay demands these vehicle types, an extended length alignment lift is absolutely necessary to perform wheel alignments.
