Purchase Auto Lift with Greater Confidence
Car lift Construction and engineering has changed significantly over the past several decades. One of the major reasons is because of the organization called the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI). They began testing automotive lifts and awarding certifications for them as early as 1945. Nobody offers as much authority on the subject as much as they do. They have a contract with (ETL), Interteck Testing Services. ETL is an independent lab and provides testing services with an independent, and non-biased perspective. They are known for their integrity and are recognized internationally and in the US by OSHA and the Department of Labor.
In order to receive the ALI Gold Seal of Approval, auto lifts must comply with and conform with the American National Standard ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011. Car lift manufacturer models must also:
BendPak Meets ANSI StandardsBeware of other manufacturers who claim their lifts meet ANSI standards then tell you how they had an independent lab test them. Most likely, the labs were hired directly by the manufacturer. Only the leading lift manufacturer's auto lifts are tested and certified by ALI and ETL. When you purchase an ALI certified lift, you can be confident that it meets or exceeds strict minimum standards for safety and quality. Most BendPak and Dannmar models are ALI-certified, while select Workhorse models are ALI-certified. Buy with confidence.

It's not just for small cars. The LR-60 has a healthy 6,000 pound capacity. Tire and brake shops use it for a wide range of vehicles, including cars, SUV's and light trucks. It comes with 4 rubber lift blocks that are 2 inches tall. You can place these blocks on the pads in the position of the auto's frame contact points. This allows you to get at frame jacking points that may be hard to reach with just the lift pad alone.
