10AP Series: Tall-Rise Lifts
Our 10APX has been designed to accommodate mechanics out there that are constantly in uncomfortable positions while on the job. This beast of a lift offers a lifting height of 79.5” and an overhead beam of 157”. This will give you plenty of room to work comfortably with the best equipment available. If you’re working on larger vehicles, our 10APX-181 is the lift for you! This lift has the same lifting height, but it features an overhead beam height of 181” so you’ll be able to work on high-roof cargo vans! Much like the rest of the 10AP Series, these lifts still have all of your favorite features, such as a 10,000-lb. lifting capacity, Low-Pro arms, Bi-Metric™ arms, and much more!
A New Paradigm in Lifting
Auto repair shops working on the latest technology need to be equipped with the latest and most advanced tools to service them properly; they need to evolve alongside the vehicles they service. BendPak's all-new AP series of two-post lifts feature a revolutionary design that factors the best qualities of today's two-post lift types into a completely new concept in car lift engineering. The result is a lift unlike any other two-post lift on the market, purposefully designed for extreme use, high loads and operator safety and efficiency.
Our 10AP Series offers the convenience of wide or narrow installation wrapped up into one configurable package. This durable, safe, and reliable car lift features an expandable top beam and Bi-Metric™ arms to suit virtually every vehicle lifting requirement – symmetric or asymmetric. The simple, yet highly sophisticated lift design keeps service and maintenance costs to a minimum, delivering lower operating expenses and higher productivity.
New Technology For Increased Operator Safety
Throughout the past few decades, the automotive industry has always been one of the most receptive industries to emerging technologies. Technology has already redefined the way cars use fuel, with electric, hybrid, and solar energy systems beginning to displace the internal combustion engine and gas-fed engines as the driving force of the future. Forecasters are projecting Electric Vehicles (EV’s) to account for a large percentage of all vehicles produced and sold in the future, and EV’s weight considerably more than traditional gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles. Those extra pounds have important implications for mechanic safety when they’re raised in the air for service. Extra vehicle weight introduces a lot more stresses and forces on automotive lift components, especially when two-post lifts are being considered.
Electric Vehicles Are Getting Larger & Heavier
With the emergence of heavier EV’s as the impetus for the new 10AP design, technicians are now able to service electric vehicles more efficiently, including trucks, vans, and sports cars. In addition to providing greater under-car access thanks to extremely low-profile arms and extra-wide column spacing, BendPak engineers focused on the use of high tensile-strength steels for all critical load-holding components. The increased tensile strength allowed our engineers to design swing arms with greater telescoping movement and tube profiles better suited for use on low ground clearance vehicles and outer-positioned EV vehicle lifting points. Safety-critical design enhancements are introduced throughout.
Electric vehicles need newer lifts to safely lift them due to the fact that they’re heavier because of the added batteries, reinforced framework, suspension, and the metal armor which protects the battery. From reinforced construction to purposefully engineered design features, the 10AP is the perfect EV service solution. Each 10AP model provides greater under-car access thanks to extremely low-profile arms and extra-wide column spacing; increased arm travel and minimum arm retraction allow for more versatile lift support positioning, which is perfectly suited for electric vehicle service.
Automatic Arm Restraint System (AARS) Prevents Unplanned Movement
Swing arm restraints have been used for decades on two-post lifts to minimize the chance of arms shifting during vehicle loading and service. However, until now, these systems had a difficult time withstanding the excessive forces applied to them when vehicles suddenly and unexpectedly shifted on the support pads or adapters of the far-reaching swing arms; typically due to improper loading or when heavy drivetrain components are added or removed from elevated vehicles causing an unanticipated transference in the center of balance.
With a full 360-degrees of load holding grip, the heavily forged-steel design of this patented and very exclusive arm restraint system secures the lift arms firmly in place with over 2000-pounds of load-holding force, preventing unplanned swing arm movement during lift use and vehicle service operations. This revolutionary design is an adaptive system that requires minimal operator involvement and delivers unparalleled holding power. A distinctive power-hold design that allows for precise non-shifting action, and a handy quick‑release operator lever allowing for the instant release of the clamping pressure.
Triple-Telescoping Nested Swind Arm Design
Revolutionary and patented swing arms are specifically tailored for varying vehicle lifting points. Unlike traditional two-post lift arms, 10AP arms retract shorter and extend farther; offering lift operators a myriad of lift arm positioning options ― it’s like having the best of all worlds.
The innovative three-stage arms achieve more telescoping movement due to their patented nesting feature that results in greater retraction and farther reach. Inner sliding arm movement is no longer impeded by arm end plates, tube closeouts, or even the arm pivot pin itself. The inner tubes retract fully through the back of the arm assembly end even beyond the arm pin, resulting in more achievable retraction and extension.
Low Profile Arms
BendPak's exclusive Low-Pro™ swing arms feature telescoping channels that have a shorter profile and a dropped-end pad receiver resulting in better serviceability on lowered chassis-height vehicles. They access hard-to-reach lift points with less hindrance providing increased versatility and less chance of damage to vehicle side skirts, running boards or ground effects. Varying height stackable adapters combined with two stage spin-up screw pads provide greater vertical pad placement for precise and safe vehicle support.
Screw Pads & Adapters That Adjust to Your Needs
Double-telescoping screw adapters feature gouge and tear-resistant polyurethane pads that can be screwed up or down to ensure level lifting in all conditions. Provides more precise and secure frame engagement, ensuring technician safety. The optional 2.5" and 5" stackable adapters provide greater vertical pad placement for precise and safe vehicle support. The drop in design allows for quick and easy use, and a column-mounted rack keeps the adapters neatly organized and secure.
Innovative Safety Lock System
The patented automatic safety lock system is designed to dramatically improve operator efficiency and safety. The simple yet innovative design ensures automatic safety lock engagement during all lift rising operations, and an ergonomic single-point release allows operators to effortlessly release the safety locks during lift descent ― literally with a push of a single finger. It’s that easy.
Bi-Metric™ Swing Arms
Exclusive Bi-Metric™ adaptable swing arms give users the ability to set their lift up in either symmetric or asymmetric configurations. The 2-in-1 design gives operators the option of loading vehicles either symmetrically (centerline of vehicle at column) or asymmetrically (centerline of vehicle behind column). By not having to switch out arms, you’ll be able to service vehicles faster than ever before.
