4 heavy-duty, high-quality, stainless steel lifting cables and a single
hydraulic cylinder mounted underneath the runway makes this lift the
most durable, maintenance-free lifting system on the market.
Dual-hub cable sheaves
Reduce stress and fatigue on the axles, sheaves and cables. We insist
on using dual-hub cable sheaves, even if they cost us more to make.
When you buy BendPak, we throw in peace of mind as a free gift.
Multi-level locking positions
The HD-9STX is equipped with multiple adjustable height locking
positions for variable-height parking. A convenient push-button
pneumatic safety lock control releases all four independent safety
Heavy-duty aircraft cable
Each lift is supplied with 4 high-quality stainless steel lifting
cables, rated at 14,400 lbs. each. The combined rating of these cables
is 640% of the maximum lifting capacity of the entire lift! And we make
sure it looks tidy too—all lifting cables are fully enclosed within the
lift structure itself.
Electric / hydraulic power system
We incorporate maintenance-free electric hydraulic power systems into
each lift for ultimate dependability, and all controls are conveniently
located within close reach.
Large base plates
12" x 12" base plates provide a solid foundation for the HD-9STX.
Single hydraulic cylinder
Each lift is equipped with a single hydraulic cylinder, hidden away
under the runway for minimum exposure and maximum reliable performance.
Our industrial-grade hydraulic cylinders feature a single-piece, pilot
fitted, machined steel piston, wrapped with specially designed,
pressure loaded U-cup piston seals, backups and wear bands to virtually
eliminate fluid bypass. The micro-smooth chrome-rod is machined from
high-yield, ground and polished C-1045/50 micro-alloy steel and plated
to a minimum of .001" diametrically, to ensure superior cylinder
operation and life. The superior-design high durometer,
mechanically-loaded rod seals make rod leakage is a thing of the past
while a specially formulated abrasion-resistant urethane rod wiper
provides exclusion protection. The welded cylinder body is made from
robust steel tubing produced to exceed ASTM specifications. This
combination of superb base material and superior processing ensures
that the cylinders remain straight, smooth and last a very long time.
An integrated flow restrictor provides a controlled descent in the case
of an unexpected hose rupture.
Durable powder-coat finish
All HD-Series lifts feature a durable powder-coat finish that gives the
metal a high-quality, extremely durable finish which can withstand even
the harshest environmental or chemical conditions. Unlike other
companies that claim to powder coat, we take pride in our meticulous
10-step process. First, all parts are visually inspected before being
sandblasted. Afterwards, the parts are washed in our 5-stage phosphate
tanks that can accommodate parts up to 25' long. Once cleaned, they're
immediately dried to avoid rust production, and then outgassed.
Outgassing pre-bakes the parts in a curing oven, reducing the
possibility of blemishes that may be hiding in the pores of the metal.
If not properly outgassed, imperfections in the metal may bubble during
the curing process and most likely will cause chips in the powder.
After the parts are washed and outgassed, any surfaces and / or
threaded holes that need to be masked or plugged, are done so with
high-temperature masking tape and silicone plugs. Next, the parts are
given a quick thinner wipe to remove any light debris or fingerprints,
before being hung on an electrostatically grounded conveyor line. The
powder is finally applied using an electrostatic spray gun. The powder
"sticks" to the surface in a fashion similar to how dust sticks to a
television screen. Once the parts are powder coated, the carts are
rolled into our curing oven and baked at 400° F for 45 minutes.
Optional 4-piece caster kit makes your lift portable, with or without car.
Four models to choose from
Take your pick. You're currently looking at the narrow-width, high-rise
HD-9STX. The HD-9 is the standard-width model, the HD-9ST is the narrow
model and the HD-9XW is the standard-width, high-rise model.
Lifting cables, airlines, safety latches and sheaves are all fully enclosed.
Longer approach ramps
These approach ramps were designed a little longer to help when loading
low ground clearance vehicles. It's the little bit that makes a big
Automatic safety locks
Aircraft-quality stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders
release all 4 locks simultaneously with the simple push of a button.
The spring-loaded safety locks automatically engage continuously as the
lift is raised. For added safety, a secondary lock system acts as a
slack-cable device to engage in the unlikely event of cable failure.
