Product Features

Lifting strength

OMER paid particular emphasis to the lift’s overall strength, with solutions specially developed for this model. These include tubular structure runways and smooth metal sheet to bear loads under the worst conditions (such as asymmetric loads).

Vertical leg design

Thanks to the original and innovative leg design, the knuckle lift has vertical movement. Another advantage of this solution is the discharge of the vertical forces on the foundation. The knuckle lift also features an electronic balancing system with automatic levelling.

Piston innovation

Housing of the piston in the upper part of the leg protects it against both dirt falling from vehicles, and damage from tools accidentally dropped by the technician.

No electronics

The master slave synchronism with “torsion bar” brought inside the control box offers easy maintenance and minimal downtime. Since no electronics are involved, the system remains mechanical/hydraulic.

Torque & deformation resistant platforms

No mechanical stress on the structure increases the lifespan of the unit. The box structure has more resistance to flections & torque, even with higher loads.

Open space working environment

Your technicians will experience more comfort and improved access to the vehicle maintenance workspace.

More stability – no sliding points

4 fixed points with no sliding points creates more stability and less resistance to torque or deformations. There are also no cantilever points on the platforms.

Safety features of the KAR540 knuckle lift system

Control console features dead man’s buttons and is designed to be simple and intuitive.
Mechanical safety locks secure the lift while it’s working. Piston air is used for the opening of mechanical safety locks.
Burst valve inserted at the back of each lifting piston with hydraulic hose for high pressures, and 5 different pressure relief valves.
