Bendpak Scissor Lifts
Genesis is the exclusive distributor for Bendpak in Australia and can source any car scissor lift from the Bendpak range.
With lifting capabilities ranging from 2700kgs to 5500kgs, to help ensure you get the right lift for you needs we suggest asking yourself these three questions:
- Do I need centreline access under the vehicle? This will help shortlist your perfect scissor lift. Some models in the Bendpak range don’t offer open centre access making them more suited to performing wheel and brake services.
- How much height do I need to achieve?
- What is the max vehicle weight I will be lifting?
Scissor Lift Alternative
EXPERT TIP: If you’ve had your eye on a scissor lift, it’s also worth looking at whether a 2 post or 4 post vehicle hoist will be more suited to your requirements. In our experience, some workshops could exponentially increase their productivity and efficiency with a better all-round lifting system and greater underbody access.
On the flipside, scissor lifts tend to boast a smaller footprint and eliminate the need for bulky side posts found in 2 and 4 posts which may clutter your workshop or garage.
So, you’ll need to weigh up the pros and cons for your personal situation to determine which style and model works for you.
Ideal for low ceilings, here’s a selection of Bendpak mid-rise lifts worth considering:
