Set of 6 Mobile Column Lifts

With 6 mobile column lifts in a single setup, you have the ability to lift up to 48,988-kg. Despite so much lifting power, each column is easy to stow away in minutes flat after the vehicle is lowered. Safety and user control is paramount, so all lifts will be connected via a single control panel and can be stopped simultaneously with the push of a button.


  • 8,165-kg. individual column capacity / 48,988-kg. maximum system capacity
  • Meets or exceeds the standards prescribed by ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011
  • Two, four, or six column configurations can accommodate heavy duty trucks and light duty passenger vehicles
  • 208-240V, 3-phase main power system - optional voltages available upon request
  • SINGLE, PAIR or TEAM operation
  • For a standard four-column set, just three 9 metre cables are used leaving the front or back of the lift clear of cable obstructions
  • Simple operation, long service life and minimum maintenance
  • Intuitive controls allow the lift to be fully programmed and controlled from any column
  • Control systems feature 24-volt safety circuitry
  • The PLC and main system components are standard off-the-shelf brands rather than proprietary printed circuit boards or controls, which can be very expensive to service or replace
  • Smart electronics feature self-diagnostics and self-calibration functions
  • Sealed and enclosed linear potentiometers feature precision potentiometric output and high-frequency response for precise synchronization and communication of all columns throughout all operation cycles for precise, level lifting
  • Variable height limit settings can be programmed for shops with low ceilings or when specific vehicle service requirements necessitate specific rise heights
  • Two-speed lowering option – turtle or rabbit speed settings
  • Each column is equipped with a warning light and audible alarm for critical warning alerts
  • Emergency shut-off switches on each column quickly shut off power to the lift in the event an unsafe condition is detected by the operator
  • Separate key lock enclosure on each column
  • Electronics are multi-fuse protected
  • An enclosed electric-hydraulic power system that ensures quieter operation is better suited for sound-sensitive areas
  • Pallet-jack style steering wheels enable the columns to be lowered firmly on the floor vs. constantly loaded spring-type steering wheels that can cause columns to roll when unladen by the weight of a vehicle
  • Low-mounted power units and cylinders means a lower center of gravity, making the columns easier to move and less likely to topple vs. screw-drive systems with heavy overhead motors and drive systems
  • Extended forks accommodate wide tires and deep wheel configurations
  • Multi-width wheel forks with locking pins accommodate the widest range of wheels, eliminating the need for specialty wheel adapters
  • Tandem 203 mm diameter polyurethane covered steel wheels with sealed roller bearings easily roll over dirt and debris
  • Heavy-duty steel carriage rollers feature turned, ground and polished axle pins
  • Manual safety override valves on each column permit the lift to be lowered in the event of a power outage without the need for manual hand cranks
  • Durable forklift pockets provide simplistic handling when moving the lift columns from one facility to another
  • Inverted hydraulic cylinders feature an integrated safety valve to prevent accidental uncontrolled lowering in the event of oil pressure loss
  • Multiple, automatic, independent safety locks spaced every four inches ensure safe operation
  • Space-saving design, reduced column weight and a tight turning radius provides improved mobility
  • Use the lift to place vehicles on tall jack stands then use the columns to raise another vehicle in an adjoining bay
  • Durable powder-coat finish
