Just ask Greg Natonson and Jason Otterness, co-owners of Chicago Auto Pros and Detailing. Their crew spends 10 plus hours a day cleaning, buffing, and waxing all the dirt, grime, salt, and road tar that Chicago’s roads can dish out. Their team can tell you that a BendPak Mid-Rise MD-6XP lift is a great tool for improving auto detailing angles and increasing access to difficult to reach auto body panels.

Otterness finds that their BendPak Mid-Rise MD-6XP portable lift is one of his shop’s most useful tools. It allows him and his crew to raise vehicles almost 4 feet above the ground, thus allowing them to color sand, buff, wash, and wax, side and lower body panels at improved 90-degree angles. With this better access there is no crouching or laying upside down on the ground to buff and clean with varying results. No inventing a floor jack and mixture of jack stands arrangement. With BendPak’s MD-6XP Mid-Rise lift and its 6,000-lb. lifting capacity, you also have easy wheel area access (for all 4 tires at the same time) to make each detail job look completely astonishing from top to bottom, inside and out. Just raise the entire car to the best working height. No more one-wheel-at-a-time jobs.
