BendPak Inc. has unveiled its new two-post parking lift, the commercial-grade PL-6000DC.
The new lift has a rated capacity of 6,000 pounds and can be installed in an eight-foot parking space. It can accommodate SUVs, light trucks, sedans and sports cars.
“The PL-6000DC was specifically designed to accommodate the needs of an array of businesses from real estate developers, architects and engineers to automotive dealers and commercial parking operators,” says Sean Price, director of sales operations at BendPak.
“When you’re constrained by space, you want to use what you have as efficiently as possible. The PL-6000DC’s compact footprint and ganged column design lets you optimize a parking area. Plus, it’s easy and economical to operate.”
The PL-6000DC uses dual telescoping direct-drive hydraulic cylinders to deliver reliability, smooth operation and lower maintenance than lifting chains. The platform can be stopped at various heights and has an automatic load-holding device to automatically engage as the parking lift rises.
Additional safety features of the BendPak PL-6000DC lift include automatic locking during a power outage, an emergency stop button and an upper limit switch.
