Longer Runways for Semi-Trucks and More
Commercial lifting solutions for semi-trucks and other municipal vehicles fall into a category all their own. That's because vehicles reaching the 27,000-lb. lift capacity begin to develop monstrous proportions. The super-long HDS-27X handles stretch limos, semi-trucks, city buses and other super-duty vehicles. In fact, 27,000 lbs. should handle a typical garbage truck without a hitch. The best part of being in the heavy-duty maintenance industry is that your competition is relatively low. Most auto shops veer away from servicing commercial fleets. They require specialized equipment (which BendPak makes easy to obtain) and more shop space, which you probably already have covered! If you want to dominate your industry with a reliable commercial fleet of lifts, you'll absolutely need the incredible HDS-27X.
Our 317.5" runways are absolutely massive. To put it in perspective, that's nearly 27 feet long. Runways are made wide and rise 58.25" in the air, so operators can work on virtually anything in a comfortable standing position.
Dual-hub cable sheaves
To protect your investment, each sheave is a massive 12” in diameter. The equally impressive 4" sheave axles greatly extend the lifespan of your car lift by reducing the overall wear on the critical lifting components (cables, sheaves, axles, etc.).
Large base plates
A super-duty lift requires extreme supports. Substantial 12" x 12" base plates hold up the massive columns on this lift for maximum structural integrity.
Spring-loaded safety locks
Multiple lock positions engage as the lift rises and instantly release upon descent. Operators need not maneuver around the lift, as is the case with other brands' manual release systems. The runway movement is kept level at all times by a built-in flow divider, so operations in fast-paced shops can go on unimpeded by worry about the lifting equipment.
Secondary lock system
With two safety lock systems built into the lift, it's virtually impossible for a well-maintained and properly used BendPak to fail. In the extremely rare and unlikely event that excess cable slack develops, the runways will be caught by the secondary system, the vehicle will remain level, and you will be able to safely fix the problem.
Rolling bridge jacks
Bridge jacks raise the wheels above the runways. Be sure to explore heavy-duty models, such as the RJ15000, a 15,000-lb. jack that's ideal for super-duty vehicles. Two jacks will raise all four vehicles off the runways for full access to the wheels. For many vehicles of this size, two-post lifts are not ideal for efficient and/or safe lifting. Four-post lifts and rolling bridge jacks are often the best way to perform wheel service. The jacks also prevent the need for additional space-consuming machinery.
