HD-9 series car stackers by BendPak
The space-saving design of the 9,000-lb. capacity HD-9 is ideal for vehicle storage in residential garages or commercial buildings. It also doubles as a great service car lift for smaller shops who still want to do a big business..
No special foundation is required and the installation is a cinch. Optional casters enable you to roll the vehicle lift outside or wherever best suits your needs.
The HD-9 is the standard version of this lift. If you are looking for a narrow-width model, consider the HD-9ST.
4 heavy-duty, high-quality, galvanized lifting cables and a single hydraulic cylinder mounted underneath the runway makes this lift the most durable, maintenance-free lifting system on the market.
Dual-hub cable sheaves
Reduce stress and fatigue on the axles, sheaves and cables. We insist on using dual-hub cable sheaves, even if they cost us more to make. When you buy BendPak, we throw in peace of mind as a free gift.
Multi-level locking positions
The HD-9 is equipped with multiple adjustable height locking positions for variable-height parking. A convenient push-button pneumatic safety lock control releases all four independent safety locks simultaneously.
Heavy-duty aircraft cable
Each lift is supplied with 4 high-quality galvanized lifting cables, rated at 14,400 lbs. each. The combined rating of these cables is 640% of the maximum lifting capacity of the entire lift! And we make sure it looks tidy too—all lifting cables are fully enclosed within the lift structure itself.
Electric / hydraulic power system
We incorporate maintenance-free electric hydraulic power systems into each lift for ultimate dependability, and all controls are conveniently located within close reach.
Large base plates
10" x 12" base plates provide a solid foundation for the HD-9.
Single hydraulic cylinder
Each lift is equipped with a single hydraulic cylinder, hidden away under the runway for minimum exposure and maximum reliable performance. Our industrial-grade hydraulic cylinders feature a single-piece, pilot fitted, machined steel piston, wrapped with specially designed, pressure loaded U-cup piston seals, backups and wear bands to virtually eliminate fluid bypass. The micro-smooth chrome-rod is machined from high-yield, ground and polished C-1045/50 micro-alloy steel and plated to a minimum of .001" diametrically, to ensure superior cylinder operation and life. The superior-design high durometer, mechanically-loaded rod seals make rod leakage is a thing of the past while a specially formulated abrasion-resistant urethane rod wiper provides exclusion protection. The welded cylinder body is made from robust steel tubing produced to exceed ASTM specifications. This combination of superb base material and superior processing ensures that the cylinders remain straight, smooth and last a very long time. An integrated flow restrictor provides a controlled descent in the case of an unexpected hose rupture.
Durable powder-coat finish
All HD-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. Unlike other companies that claim to powder coat, we take pride in our meticulous 10-step process. First, all parts are visually inspected before being sandblasted. Afterwards, the parts are washed in our 5-stage phosphate tanks that can accommodate parts up to 25' long. Once cleaned, they're immediately dried to avoid rust production, and then outgassed. Outgassing pre-bakes the parts in a curing oven, reducing the possibility of blemishes that may be hiding in the pores of the metal. If not properly outgassed, imperfections in the metal may bubble during the curing process and most likely will cause chips in the powder. After the parts are washed and outgassed, any surfaces and / or threaded holes that need to be masked or plugged, are done so with high-temperature masking tape and silicone plugs. Next, the parts are given a quick thinner wipe to remove any light debris or fingerprints, before being hung on an electrostatically grounded conveyor line. The powder is finally applied using an electrostatic spray gun. The powder "sticks" to the surface in a fashion similar to how dust sticks to a television screen. Once the parts are powder coated, the carts are rolled into our curing oven and baked at 400° F for 45 minutes.
Four models to choose from
Take your pick. You're currently looking at the standard-width, standard-rise HD-9. The HD-9ST is the narrow model, the HD-9STX is the tall and narrow model and the HD-9XW is the standard-width, tall model.
Lifting cables, airlines, safety latches and sheaves are all fully enclosed.
Longer approach ramps
These approach ramps were designed a little longer to help when loading low ground clearance vehicles. It's the little bit that makes a big difference.
Automatic safety locks
Aircraft-quality stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders release all 4 locks simultaneously with the simple push of a button. The spring-loaded safety locks automatically engage continuously as the lift is raised. For added safety, a secondary lock system acts as a slack-cable device to engage in the unlikely event of cable failure.

Featured accessories for the HD-9
What customers are saying about HD-9 Car Lifts by BendPak
"I considered other brands - Backyard Buddy, Rotary, Revolution (Rotary), and Direct Lift. In the end, the combination of price (about $3500 installed, including casters which allow one to move the lift around), reputation of brand, (auto) air safety locks, enclosed cabling, adjustable ramp width (between 37.25" and 44" inside to inside), and optional rolling bridge jack made the BendPak the best option for me. (plus, the blue matches my other lift)"
- HIRISC on 6speedonline
"I have had a Bend-Pak HD9 9000 lb four post lift since December 2004. I've basically been happy with it. It has worked fine and required little maintenance."
- heinzd01 on Camaro 5
"I've been building a couple project cars with the HD-9's and I love them. Complete access to everything I've needed to do. Fabricate a complete exhaust pulled a couple motors, big brake swaps, loaded alignments, etc."
- ket-tek on garagejournal
"My Bendpak car hoist sure comes in handy….It's a Bendpak HD-9 lift with 2 roller jacks installed. Bendpak modified the jack setup to accommodate my low clearance cars."
- rzundel on audizine
"As far as lifts go, there are a bunch of different styles out there ranging from two-, four-post and scissor lifts, all with varying load limits. A nice four-post lift (HD-9, $2,660) is offered by BendPak and supports up to 9,000 pounds; enough for most any project vehicle and then some."
- The Auto Insider on Jalopnik
"Have a 'BendPak' 4-post in my garage...I think it was their entry-level lift, but it still handles 9,000 lbs...It has worked perfectly, is built better than all the 7,000 lb China-made lifts & cost much less than the Backyard Buddys...It's called the 'HD-9.'"
- judgeman6970 on challengertalk
"Don't skimp. I have a 9,000 lb capacity BendPak 5 post lift. Love it. With the casters, it can be rolled anywhere with 1 - 2 people pushing."
