BendPak BendPak 10APX Symmetric 2 Post Car Lift 10,000 lb. Capacity
A New Paradigm in Lifting
BendPak’s all-new AP series of two-post lifts are 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 on the market, purposefully designed for extreme use, high loads and operator efficiency.
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 weigh considerably more than traditional gasoline or diesel powered vehicles. Those extra pounds have important implications for mechanic safety when these vehicles are raised in the air for service. Extra vehicle weight induces a lot more stresses and forces on automotive lift components, especially when two-post lifts are being considered. With the emergence of heavier vehicles as the impetus for the new 10AP design, BendPak engineers focused on the use of higher tensile-strength steels for the swing arms and other critical load-holding components, and the introduction of safety-critical design enhancements throughout.
Automatic Arm Restraint System (AARS) Prevents Unplanned Movement
A significant design feature that makes BendPak’s AP series particularly well-suited for heavy vehicle service is a revolutionary automatic arm restraint system that has been bolstered to withstand elevated pushing and pulling forces that occur when vehicles are raised.
The new Automatic Arm Restraint System (AARS) is designed to ensure safety at all times, minimizing the risk of vehicle fall accidents during the lift use and vehicle service operations. The heavily forged-steel design of the AARS secures the lift arms firmly in place, preventing unplanned swing-arm movement during lift use and vehicle service operations. With a constant restraining force applied on the swing arms during all lifting p, accidental arm creep resulting in sudden arm shift and unplanned rapid extraction, the leading contributing factor in vehicle falls, is safely mitigated.
