LIFT FAQ

What is the difference between "Asymmetric", "Symmetric" and "Super - Symmetric®" Two-Post lifts?
Asymmetric lifts move back the center of gravity of the vehicle. This benefits passenger cars, allowing the door to swing open behind the lift column, minimizing the risk of door damage.
Symmetric lifts evenly distribute the center of gravity of the vehicle between the lift columns. Allows the door to swing open in the middle of the lift column.
Super - Symmetric® lifts are the best of both which includes 2-stage rear arms and 3-stage front arms,allows the operator to collapse the front arms to easily lift a short wheel based vehicle and extend the arms to raise a long wheel based vehicle.

Concrete must be at least 4” thick, in good condition and must be of test strength 3,000 (250 kg/cm²) minimum.

What type of electrical requirements do I need?

What are the fluid requirements for lifts?

How long will it take to get a lift?
