BendPak HD-9 Series Car Lifts – Affordable Quality

November 9th, 2014

If you’re a home / hobby consumer looking for a premium quality car lift, but want something affordable, you can’t go wrong with the BendPak HD-9 lifts. They were made with the home user in mind, but are built to the same exacting standards as the popular 14,000 lb. capacity models all the way up to their 40,000 lb. truck hoists. They provide all of the same convenience and safety features, as well as the same great warranty.

BendPak HD-9 Lift

We know there are many choices when it comes to four post lifts. There are many poor quality options, some good choices and then there are only a select few premium choices.  If you’re the type of individual that demands the best, but at a reasonable price, then Bend Pak is for you. What does BendPak offer that these other manufacturer’s don’t? When you research into the features and specifications of a BendPak HD-9 lift, you’ll see many of the same features that you would find on the typical moderate grade car hoist. But when you dig a little deeper, you’ll soon find a vast list of features that allow it to rise above the rest.

ALI Certified
The first thing you’ll notice is that the HD-9 series of 4 post lifts are ALI Certified. This is a very significant badge of honor. This certification is from an independent authority for automotive lift safety and quality requirements. Most lifts never achieve this prestigious award. And ALI is the only organized body that is recognized for it’s certification process. If an auto lift manufacturer tells you that their hoist is certified by someone other than ALI, move on. Simply put, nobody else has the clout of ALI.

Ultimate Safety
Beyond that, you’ll find safety features that go well beyond the normal and typical features found on most models out there. For instance, the air solenoid safety release feature provides the most reliable method for disengagement of the safety mechanism. The typical mechanical safety release system found on most car enthusiast 4 post lifts are more prone to get stuck. If this were to happen on 1 column, there is a potential for the lift’s runways to become out-of-level, and if this happens while the user is not paying close attention, the lift would likely either collapse, of the vehicle could possibly slide down and fall off the rack.

Another great safety feature is the slack cable safety system. Every 4 post lift on the market has a locking safety system. This keeps the runways resting on the locking device instead of the hydraulic system. But few lifts, especially in the home market, offer a slack cable safety. This is typically found on only premium commercial grade lifts. This extra safety measure instantly and automatically engages if the cables break during the raising or lowering process while the runways are not resting on the safety locks.

Convenience & Longevity
BendPak HD-9 lifts also offer a vast list of features designed to add longevity to the hoist and to make your life easier. One of those features is the laddered safety locking system. Have an un-level floor? Instead of using the common stepped safety system that most lifts utilize, BendPak lifts use this reliable safety system that can adjust to allow you to compensate for low or high points in your floor. This can also be considered yet another safety feature, because if your lift isn’t level, this can also be a safety hazard. Beyond that, BendPak has built their HD-9 series lifts with some innovative features that allow the components to last longer, allowing you to raise vehicles without trouble, and with little down-time. For instance, the increased the diameter of the cable pulleys / sheaves that all of the lifting cables run on. What’s the significance of this? Simply put, it extends the life of the cables by up to double the typical 4 post lift.

Wide Selection
There are 5 different models to choose from to meet nearly any consumer, or professional’s need. Click on the links below to view them –
