XPR 15 Series Models


(Columns have Extra Height)

BendPak hoists meet the Australian (AS 1418.9) and International Standards.

Car Lift Arm Design

Lowered Arm Tube Supports
To minimise the chance of damaging vehicles with low-hanging vehicle doors, we completely redesigned our arm tube supports to allow for better clearance.

Automatic Arm Restraints
Each arm is equipped with durable arm restraints that automatically engage each time the lift is raised. When the lift is lowered, the gear arm restraints automatically disengage to provide easy positioning of the lift arms.

Car Lift Column Construction

Single Piece Column (Left)
We purposely manufacture the columns using single-piece construction for added strength and less fatigue under heavy load conditions.

Optional Column Extension (Right)
Gives you the flexibility of increasing the overhead clearance to maximise the vehicles you can service.

Safety with Smart Technology

Single Point Safety Release (Left)
The single point safety release and “dead man” style operation controls makes every one of our XPR-Series lifts easy to operate and safe to use.

On the level
Our dual-synchro equalisation system maintains equal lifting and provides operators with a stable, level vehicle working condition.

Auto Shut-off Top Bar (Above)
A rigid, padded safety shutoff bar automatically stops the lift should a vehicle come in contact with overhead structure.

Durable Powder-Coat Finish

High Speed Hydraulics

All XPR-Series lifts feature a durable powder-coat finish that gives the metal a high-quality, extremely durable finish which can withstand even the harshest environmental or chemical conditions.

Free-flow, high-pressure 3/8″ hydraulic lines, a high-flow pump and integrated AC power-unit increase ascent and descent speed rates for enhanced productivity.

Direct-Drive Technology

BendPak two-post lifts feature low-pressure HVLP direct-drive cylinders eliminating the need for lifting chains or screw mechanisms most commonly found on other lift designs. Dual HVLP low-pressure cylinders minimize leakage and offer better reliability, smoother operation and less maintenance costs throughout the life of your lift. High-volume, low-pressure equates to less workload placed on the entire hydraulic system.

Direct-Drive technology is preferred on commercial-grade two post car lifts as it has it has fewer moving parts than a chain-over-roller cylinder configuration. Pressurised hydraulic fluid flows from the power-unit, through the hollow cylinder rods then enters the cylinder body and fills the inside cavity. The pressure of the hydraulic fluid extends the piston rod downward raising the cylinder body and lift carriages. A dual-synchro equalisation system maintains equal lifting and provides operators with a stable, level vehicle working condition.
