Incredible Truck Hoist for Heavy-Duty Lifting
BendPak's HDS-18E four-post hoist is engineered to make light work out of heavy lifting. It’s built to last and features upgrades that increase safety, durability and productivity. This is the hoist that graduates from the class of mid-size trucks, vans and SUVs up to heavy-duty applications. This is a professional car hoist that can even handle some industrial and farming equipment. It’s also lighter-duty than other hoists in the truck-weight category, so it’s not overkill when you don’t need, for instance, 20 tons of hoist capacity when 9 tons will do just fine.
To accommodate long wheelbases, the HDS-18E offers extended runways that are 6,680 mm front-to-back. This is the first of the heavy-duty models to offer extended runways. All 27K, 35K and 40K hoists are built this way. Better-gripping runways ensure the massive tires on your massive vehicles stay put. If the runways gets slick, their treaded surfaces are still able to grab the wheels without damaging or marring them.
Large base plates
305 mm x 305 mm base plates don’t just provide a solid foundation, they inspire the confidence to work on virtually any-size vehicle up to the rated weight capacity.
Dual-hub cable sheaves
Supersized 305 mm diameter cable sheaves within the runway and cross tubes, combined with massive 102 mm diameter sheave axles, dramatically improve cable wear and critical component lifespan, meaning this car hoist increases your safety, so you spend less money in service-related expenses down the road.
Heavy-duty aircraft cable
The HDS-18E four-post hoist features four galvanized lifting cables that do an excellent job of providing abrasion resistance and preventing fatigue.
Grease nipples are located on every sheave and sheave axle to make lubrication maintenance a breeze.
Spring-loaded safety locks
Spring-loaded safety locks automatically engage continuously during rise, and adjustable safety ladders allow for precise runway leveling, even if the posts have been installed on slightly sloped floors.
Push-button pneumatic lock release
A simple push-button pneumatic lock release makes lowering operations simple and fast. Aircraft-quality stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders will provide years of trouble-free service.
Secondary lock system
A secondary lock system is on constant guard and acts as a slack-cable device in the unlikely event of an unexpected cable failure. Only consider a four-post hoist that offers this secondary lock system.
Lifting cables, airlines, safety latches and sheaves are all fully enclosed within the structure.
Adjustable height locking positions
Features adjustable locking positions for variable-height parking and infinite leveling.
Electric-hydraulic power system
A maintenance-free electric-hydraulic power system assures ultimate dependability. Despite its size and hoisting capacity, all controls on the HDS-18E four-post hoist are conveniently located within easy reach.
Optional rolling bridge jack (two makes a set)
Rolling jacks are used to raise the front or rear portion of a vehicle off the car hoist’s runways, allowing operators to perform efficient wheel and brake service. A pair of jacks allows the entire vehicle to be elevated. Each jack has telescoping arms and frame contact pads that can be extended over the runways and positioned under vehicle lifting points. Each jack features three safety-lock positions and stackable truck and van adapters for increased hoisting height and better access to frame contact points on high ground-clearance vehicles. The jacks come equipped with a commercial-grade air-hydraulic pump.
