Question

Low clearance cars

Your scissor lift seems perfect for my garage. However all of my cars are sports cars with very low ground clearance, any problem using this lift with low clearance cars? Are longer approach ramps available?

You can build ramps using stacked 2x12's or sink the lift into the floor. You'll need about 4" of height.

For sports cars I went and bought 2 2by10's by 12 feet long, mitered a 30 degree tapper on the ends and place them on the sides of the lift and drive the car up onto the ramps and over the lift with no problems. If the vehicle sits really low just buy 4 boards and double them up.

Question

The base of this lift, Model# MD-6XP, looks narrow such that there would be significant risk of the car toppling over if bumped.

Is there any safety mechanism to prevent the car from toppling over when the lift is fully raised?

Thanks,

Orest

There are no safety mechanisms built into this lift. The manufacturer has tested this lift over and over again and have constructed it with a zero percent chance of car ever toppling off the lift.

answer 2
There is no mechanism to prevent the lift from tipping side to side, it only has locks to prevent the lift from lowering unexpectedly or a mechanical failure. I have this lift and when fully raised its stable and I feel comfortable working next to the vehicle. If you were doing some very heavy prying on a suspension component you will feel the lift/vehicle move somewhat. You just need to use caution and common sense when working on something and know that you can't overdue some tasks, however I don't think it would ever tip over, it's pretty stable.

The Bend Pak Scissor Lift will work with the 3/4 GMC/Ford ful size pickup as long as the weight is under the 6,000 lb. limit and vehicle weight is centered on the lift.

answer 2
If the CURB weight is 6000lbs or less and you can get all 4 arms to grab the frame effectively then yes. The regular cab GM trucks have a very short frame section to place the arms so it's difficult, but an extended cab or crew cab should be fine given it does not exceed the weight capacity.

Question

dimensions

Please tall me the overall width of the lift when lowered. Also, how "portable" is the lift portion. Can I move it out of the way. How much does the lift component (without the pump and motor) weigh?

Staff Answer
The overall width of this unit when lowered and arms inside is 39-1/2". As to portability, the lift is about 900 pounds (per mfg) it has two rollers built into the base, you would attach the pump assembly to the opposite end of the lift, and pull the unit out of the way. Never attempt to move the lift with a vehicle on it.

It will not operate correctly if under 41 degrees. The oil would be cold and needs to be warmer than 41 degrees.
