Mohawk Lift offers weight gauge

Nov. 21, 2008

Mohawk Lifts is offering a weight gauge for all Mohawk two-post lifts with 7,000 to 30,000 pound lifting capacities.

In the shop, the weight gauge -- a scale on the lift -- serves as a diagnostic tool, the company reports.

It will be helpful for selling better brakes, heavy-duty brakes or tires with higher load ratings "should customers complain of poor mileage or short brake pad life," the company notes.

"Customers with work trucks or SUVs can be shown actual weight to justify higher dollar parts installations," the company says.

The weight gauge will show no weight when the tech is properly using the lift and lowering the vehicle onto the lift’s mechanical safety locks. It also will verify that the lift is not being overloaded.
