BendPak AP Series next generation of two-post lifts with patent-pending features are designed to make lifting internal combustion and electric cars, trucks and vans safer, easier and more efficient.
“As the automotive industry evolves, BendPak continues to develop the innovative lifts and shop equipment our customers need to properly service new vehicles,” says Jeff Kritzer, BendPak president and CEO.
“Lifting electric vehicles presents unique challenges because EVs tend to be heavier and have harder-to-reach lift points than traditional vehicles. We’ve reengineered our two-post lifts to meet these challenges. In addition to strategically increasing the high-strength steel in critical load-holding components, we also developed an all-new safety lock system, lift arms and swing arm restraints.
“As a result, the BendPak AP Series is unlike any other two-post lift on the market, purposefully designed for extreme use, high loads and maximum operator safety and efficiency.”
The AP Series features a revolutionary swing arm design that offers both greater under-vehicle clearance and better extension and retraction to enable technicians to reach the OEM-recommended lift points on more vehicles than ever.
This is achieved through several clever engineering advancements. The three-stage arms available on other lifts can only retract as far as their end plates or pivot pins.
The AP Series’ triple-telescoping nested swing arm design lets the inner arms retract fully through the back of the front arm assembly and around the arm pin of the rear arms to maximize retraction and extension.
The AP Series arms truly put the “low” in “Low-Pro.”
BendPak eliminated the traditional externally sloped arm gusseting and strengthened the telescoping arms themselves to provide the lowest possible arm profile. This further enhances the ability to reach both in-close and far-out lifting points while also minimizing damage to vehicle ground effects.
The arms terminate with dropped-end pad receivers that step down even lower. These receivers can accommodate a wide range of stackable adapters and two-stage spin-up screw pads to reach countless lift points.
BendPak’s arm innovations not only save technicians time and hassle when positioning vehicles on AP Series lifts, they also enhance safety since improper spotting is a leading cause of lift accidents.
