Automotive and truck lifts are critical to the operation and profitability of your business. The safe use of this and other lifts in your shop is critical in preventing employee injuries and damage to customer vehicles. By operating lifts safely, you can ensure that your shop is profitable, productive and safe.
Safe operation of automotive lifts requires that only trained employees should be allowed to use the lift.
Training should include, but is not limited to:
Proper positioning of the vehicle on the runway. (See manufacturers minimize wheel base loading requirements.)
Use of the operating controls.
Understanding the lift capacity.
Proper use of jack stands or other load supporting devices.
Proper use, understanding and visual identification of safety lock devices and their operation.
Reviewing the safety rules.
Proper housekeeping procedures (lift area should be free of grease, oil, tools, equipment, trash and other debris).
A daily inspection of the lift should be completed prior to its use. Safety devices, operating controls, lift arms and other critical parts should be inspected prior to using the lift.
All maintenance and repairs of the lift should be completed by following the manufacturer’s requirements. Lift repair parts should meet or exceed OEM specifications. Repairs should only be completed by a qualified lift technician.
The vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations should be used for spotting and lifting the vehicle.
Crucial Safety Considerations
It is important that you know the load limit. Be careful that you do not overload the lift. If you are unsure what the load limit is, check the data plate found on one of the car lift columns, or contact the manufacturer.
The center of gravity should be followed closely to what the manufacturer recommends.
Always make sure you have proper overhead clearance. Additionally, check that attachments, (vehicle signs, campers, antennas, etc.) are not in the way.
Be sure that prior to the vehicle being raised, the doors, trunk and hood are securely closed.
Prior to being raised, make sure there is no one standing closer than six feet from the lift.
After positioning the vehicle on the lift runways, set the emergency brake, make sure the ignition is off, the doors are closed, overhead obstructions are cleared and the transmission is in neutral.
Double check that the automatic chock devices are in position and then when the lift is raised, observe the chocks.
Place pads or adapters in the correct position under the recommended contact points.
The lift should be raised just until the vehicle’s wheels are about one foot off the ground. If contact with the vehicle is uneven or it appears that the vehicle is not sitting secure, carefully lower the lift and readjust.
Always consider potential problems that might cause a vehicle to slip, i.e., heavy cargo, undercoating, etc.
Pay attention when walking under a vehicle that is up on the hydraulic lift.
DO NOT leave the controls while the lift is still in motion.
DO NOT stand directly in front of the vehicle or in the bay when vehicle is being loaded or driven into position.
DO NOT go near vehicle or attempt to work on the vehicle when being raised or lowered.
REMAIN CLEAR of lift when raising or lowering vehicle.
DO NOT rock the vehicle while on the lift or remove any heavy component from vehicle that may cause excessive weight shift.
DO NOT lower the vehicle until people, materials and tools are clear
ALWAYS ENSURE that the safeties are engaged and lowered on to the safety ladders before any attempt is made to work on or near vehicle.
Some vehicle maintenance and repair activities may cause the vehicle to shift. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when performing these operations. The use of jack stands or alternate lift points may be required when completing some repairs.
READ AND UNDERSTAND all safety warning procedures before operating lift.
KEEP HANDS AND FEET CLEAR. Remove hands and feet from any moving parts. Keep feet clear of lift when lowering. Avoid pinch points.
ONLY TRAINED OPERATORS should operate this lift. All non-trained personnel should be kept away from work area. Never let non-trained personnel come in contact with, or operate lift.
USE LIFT CORRECTLY. Use lift in the proper manner. Never use lifting adapters other than what is approved by the manufacturer.
DO NOT override self-closing lift controls.
CLEAR AREA if vehicle is on danger of falling.
STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing. Use common sense. Be aware.
CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS. Check for alignment of moving parts, breakage of parts or any condition that may affect its operation. Do not use lift if any component is broken or damaged.
NEVER remove safety related components from the lift. Do not use car lift if safety related components are damaged or missing.
When the lift is being lowered, make sure everyone is standing at least six feet away.
Be sure there are no jacks, tools or equipment left under the lift before lowering.
Always lower the vehicle down slowly and smoothly.
Wire Rope Inspection and Maintenance
Lifting cables should be replaced every three to five years or when visible signs of damage are apparent. Do not use a car lift with defective or worn cables.
Lifting cables should be maintained in a well-lubricated condition at all times. Wire rope is only fully protected when each wire strand is lubricated both internal and external. Excessive wear will shorten the life of the wire rope. The factory suggested wire rope lubricant that penetrates to the core of the rope and provides long-term lubrication between each individual strand is 90 WT gear oil or ALMASOL® Wire Rope Lubricant. In order to make sure that the inner layers of the rope remain well lubricated, lubrication should be carried out at intervals not exceeding three months during operation.
All sheaves and guide rollers in contact with the moving rope should be given regular visual checks for surface wear and lubricated to make sure that they run freely. This operation should be carried out at appropriate intervals generally not exceeding three months during operation. For all sheave axles, the factory recommends standard wheel bearing grease.
For all sheaves and/or guide rollers, the factory recommends 90 WT gear oil or similar heavy lubricant applied by any method, including pump/spray dispensing, brush, hand and/or swabbing.
How Often to Inspect
Lifting cables should be visually inspected at least once each day when in use, as suggested by American Petroleum Institute (API) RP54 guidelines.
Any lifting cables that have met the criteria for removal must be immediately replaced.
When to Replace Lifting Cables Due to Broken Wires
Lifting cables should be removed from service when you see six randomly distributed broken wires or three broken wires in one strand within one lay length.
Other Reasons to Replace Lifting Cables
Corrosion that pits the wires and/or connectors.
Evidence of kinking, crushing, cutting, bird-caging or a popped core.
Wear that exceeds 10% of a wire’s original diameter.
Evidence of heat damage.
How to Find Broken Wires
The first step is to relax your rope to a stationary position and move the pickup points off the sheaves. Clean the surface of the rope with a cloth—a wire brush, if necessary—so you can see any breaks.
Flex the rope to expose any broken wires hidden in the valleys between the strands.
Visually check for any broken wires. One way to check for crown breaks is to run a cloth along the rope to check for possible snags.
With an awl, probe between wires and strands and lift any wires that appear loose. Evidence of internal broken wires may require a more extensive rope examination.
General Car Lift Safety Warnings
Ensure that the front posts’ upper and lower slide blocks are properly oriented before proceeding (see manual).
IMPORTANT! It is important that the SLACK SAFETY LOCK IS CLEARED. The slack safety lock must never rest on the safety ladder.

All cable nuts MUST be tightened on each end until there is at least one inch of threads protruding through the nut. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death.
KEEP HANDS AND FEET CLEAR. Remove hands and feet from any moving parts. Keep feet clear of lift when lowering. Avoid pinch points. Safety locks may not engage at exactly the same time when vehicles are being raised. They should be close. Be sure that all four corners have passed the SAME safety ladder bar slot before lowering lift on the safety locks. NEVER lower lift on different safety lock position or damage to the lift may result.
WARNING! Wheel chock must be used on the rear wheels.
Visually confirm that all primary safety locks are engaged before entering work area.
Suspension components us on this lift are intended to raise and lower lift only and are not meant to be load-holding devices.

General Rolling Jack Safety Warnings
DANGER! It is the responsibility of the owner/installer of this rolling bridge jack to ensure that the car lift upon which the rolling bridge jack is installed has been properly installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
Visually inspect the lift onto which the rolling bridge jack is to be installed, and verify the lift is in good condition and free of defects. Understand that installing a rolling jack on a lift that is in poor condition could cause lift failure resulting in personal injury or death.
I understand that this rolling bridge jack is to be installed only on a car lift manufactured by BendPak Inc. and that the capacity of the bridge jack is consistent with the maximum capacity of the lift that it being installed on.
DANGER! The axle weight of the vehicle being raised should not exceed the maximum capacity of the rolling bridge jack. Consult the vehicle manufacturer for specifications.
WARNING! When removing or moving the Rolling Bridge Jack from shipping pallet, pay close attention, as the Jack may move and can cause injury. Prior to removing the strapping or bolts, make sure the Jack is held securely by a fork lift or some other heavy lifting device.
DANGER! Disconnect and/or release the pressure from the air supply system/hoses before performing any installation or maintenance of the air supply system.
DANGER! The air supply should be to 20 CFM (.57 m3 / min) And 100 psi (7 bar). Air supply should be regulated to a maximum of 125 psi (8.6 bar).
WARNING! Never use more than 5” of lift pad adapter height.
General Rolling Jack Safety Warnings
This lift is designed to be installed in groups (bolted together) of three units or more. For installation of single or double units only. It is suggested installers anchor to the floor using 3/4” concrete anchors.
Consult a pavement contractor to determine if your asphalt surface meets recommended minimum pavement thickness and design to support a car lift or lifts.
IMPORTANT! Prior to assembly of the Lift components, you must determine the Locked Height of the lift, Dimension “B”. Use the manual to determine where to bolt the safety stop block on the powerside lift head.
Do not attempt to proceed unless you have additional trained personnel to assist, a forklift and cargo straps or chains and/or a lifting crane capable of lifting 2,000 lbs. or more.
Review and understand the wiring diagrams (consult manual) before proceeding. The manual’s electrical wiring diagrams outline how the wires should be run through the control bar. Be sure you have a thorough understanding of the cable routing before cutting any cables to length.
DANGER! Because the lift is not raised high enough to reach the first safety lock position, DO NOT work on or near lift until support stands are in place to support the platform(s). Always ensure support stands and/or the safeties are engaged before any attempt is made to work on or near the lift / vehicle.
Before lowering vehicle, be sure all personnel are clear of the lift and surrounding area. Pay careful attention to overhead clearances. Ensure all tools and equipment have been cleared from under the lift.
IMPORTANT! The car lift should only be installed by qualified lift installers who are familiar with this particular lift model and the installation requirements thereof. The frame on this lift MUST NOT be twisted, bent or otherwise misaligned by un-level floors or improper anchoring. Misalignment will cause damage to the lift. Maximum out-of-level at anchors should not exceed 1” side to side or 2” front-to-rear.
Shim at anchors if floor is crowned more than 1 / 2” between front-to-rear anchors.
CAUTION! Your new car lift was designed primarily for performing two-wheel or four-wheel alignments on passenger vehicles and light trucks. If the lift is a “scissors” type, in which the lift is raised by a scissors-actuating lifting system, no forward or rearward movement should occur, unlike “parallelogram” style lifts that move forward during the lifting process. The lift is powered by four hydraulic cylinders located within the runway assemblies. The motor assembly or power unit is a self-contained electric-hydraulic motor and pump assembly that incorporates a push button switch for raising and push button switches for lowering the lift.
The lift has multiple locking positions that should be engaged before any attempt is made to work on or near vehicle.
IMPORTANT! The hydraulic hoses have been pre-installed for your convenience. Be careful not to cut the hydraulic hoses during the installation process. The hoses were pre-routed for a driver side / left side power console installation. The power console can be located on either the left side or right side. If you desire a passenger side / right side power console installation, it will be necessary to re-route the main power hose. Follow the hose-routing instructions on the following page for proper hose routing.
IMPORTANT! DO NOT anchor the lift frames to the floor until the lift assembly is completed, raised and lowered at least six times to ensure it is level. If the lift binds or the frames twist when it is raised, make adjustments accordingly before anchoring to the floor.
WARNING! Equalizer valves must remain in the closed position during normal operation. Failure to close valves during normal operation may damage lift structure.
WARNING! Always set the adjustable arms and pads under the proper lifting points as indicated in the lifting guide or owner’s manual for the vehicle.
