Construction, Municipal and Commercial Vehicles Welcome
This is where our car lifts really step into the next level of lifting. While the HDS-18E is an entry-level lift in the medium-duty truck category, the HDS-27 is well-suited to take your business well beyond the needs of most private drivers. This garage lift brings you into the realm of construction equipment, commercial flatbed trucks, concrete mixers, garbage trucks, buses, etc.
Every BendPak four-post lift, regardless of lift capacity, is made to exacting standards and gets the job done without undue strain or pain on the equipment. When we rate a truck lift at 27,000 lbs., that means anything at or under that weight limit is a cinch for our lifts to handle. We superbly over-engineer everything, so you can keep the “biggest and baddest” commercial and municipal vehicles up to code and ready for the next great haul.
Longer runways accommodate a wide variety of vehicle wheelbases, allowing you to steer massive trucks and buses onto our ramps without damaging your vehicle chassis.
Dual-hub cable sheaves
We take the time, cost and effort to bring you the best. Each sheave contained within the runway and cross tubes is a massive 12” in diameter, and the sheave axles, at 4” in diameter, greatly extend the lifespan of your lift by reducing the overall wear put on these parts. Manufacturing sheave components are even bigger than ones offered by our competition, which ensures superior quality in our product. Additionally, BendPak parts always meet or exceed ALI standards for load bearing and safety.
Heavy-duty aircraft cable
Each of the four, 1/2” diameter, 6 x 25 galvanized lifting cables has a 14,000-lb. breaking strength, so a four-post lift as massive as this has the engineering to keep your vehicles safe at all times, especially during periods of heavy use. They won’t rust out or break apart due to bad weather, chemicals or random, floating garage particulate.
The sheaves and sheave axles are fitted with grease nipples to lubricate the parts as they move. This is an essential feature that is also a form of auto-maintenance, so you have little to do during your periodic service checks.
This truck lift provides the best that modern hydraulic technology has to offer. Integrated into the hydraulic cylinder is a flow restrictor that provides a safe, slow descent. This is true even in the extremely rare occurrence of a burst or ruptured hydraulic hose.
Large base plates
Substantial 12" x 12" base plates support the massive columns.
Spring-loaded safety locks
When the HDS-27 truck lift rises, spring-loaded safety locks engage the moving platforms. Safety ladders are standard and can be adjusted to keep the runways level, which is especially useful for sloped floors.
Push-button pneumatic lock release
The steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders are aircraft-quality and certified to last for years without service. Lowering the lift release off the locks is done with one push against the pneumatic lock release. Just another simple way we put you in total control of your lift operations.
Secondary lock system
Two locks are better than one! A secondary slack-cable lock engages in case of cable failure, which is unlikely to occur. Still, we prepare our heavy-duty lifts for the worst to keep you working at your best.
Tucked safely into the structure of the four-post lift columns, our lifting cables, airlines, safety latches and cable sheaves are kept away from inclement weather, hazardous chemical erosion and garage dirt/debris. The column structure is the safest and most logical place to conceal the working parts of the lift. Internally routed parts are also crucial to creating the beautiful BendPak aesthetic our customers have come to know and love!
Adjustable height locking positions
Four-post lifts accommodate many different vehicle types, so we’ve made sure you can adjust the height to suit your needs and safely lock your vehicle in place.
Electric-hydraulic power system
Our car lifts are designed with all operator buttons within reach, so you can raise, lower or shut down the system at any time. One-push button controls make the whole process that much smoother.
Runways should be built to hold vehicles steady in case of oil spills or wet surface conditions. Even in bad weather, the non-skid runways on this four-post lift are tough, textured and rugged to the touch.
Flexible protective conduit
All of BendPak’s heavy-duty cables are fitted with a protective casing that is flexible and non-conducive to electricity. Your hoses will be intact and serviceable for many years without service, and the non-metallic tubing will ensure you’re never shocked by anything other than the great value of your purchase.
Rolling bridge jacks
Bridge jacks raise the wheels above the runways, which lets operators perform wheel and brake service on the car. Since the HDS-27 Series supports some extremely heavy vehicles, the truck and SUV adapter set is a necessity for wheel/brake service on these lifts. Commercial-grade hydraulic pumps come standard and require 125 PSI and 10 – 20 CFM.
Choose extended length
Some vehicles at the 27,000-lb. lift capacity begin to develop monstrous proportions. Garage trucks, for instance, are wide, tall and feature wide wheel bases. You need a car lift that can handle all those dimensions, plus the weight, without crapping out on you. The super-long HDS-27X may be the better option for your shop. Just be sure to discuss your service needs with a trained BendPak service representative if you need help deciding which 27K four-post lift is right for you.
*Not all BendPak lift models meet the standards as prescribed by ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011 or ANSI/UL 201. Consult www.autolift.org for a complete list or contact BendPak via firstname.lastname@example.org.
