BendPak HDS-18EA



The heavy-truck ready HD-18A pulls double duty as both a legendary 18,000-lb. capacity lift and an alignment system.

BendPak's HD-Series alignment lifts are engineered to meet the strenuous demands of even your toughest professional lifting jobs. Designed into every HD-Series lift is a laundry list of key features as long as your arm to ensure that BendPak is the absolute best you can buy. Our competitors might say we overdo it, but we don't include components for the sake of frills and flash. We design our lifts with the attributes we feel should come standard with every lift the kind of lift we would want to (and do) own. Take the HD-18A for instance. This is the sturdy beast you want as the backbone of your shop; especially if you want to specialize in servicing heavy trucks. Our alignment system features front turn plates and rear slip plates built right into the runways. The wheels always respond to your adjustments with no resistance or hassle. We call it "free floating." You'll call unbelievably easy. It's just another way that you can bet on BendPak lifts for increased durability, safety and productivity. Spend less time worrying about what you're working under and more time doing what you love. Our commercial-grade lifts are second to none and recognized the world-over as benchmarks of dependability and quality. Heck, it's how we got our slogan.

Love the aligning convenience offered by the HD-18A, but need more lifting power or longer runways? Consider the 27,000-lb. capacity HD-27A, the extended 27,000-lb. capacity HD-27XA, the 35,000-lb. capacity HD-35A and its extended version HD-35XA.

Dependable design
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-18A 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 locks simultaneously.

Heavy-duty aircraft cable
Each lift is supplied with 4 high-quality stainless steel lifting cables, rated at 40,000 lbs. each. The combined rating of these cables is over 888% 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.
