The 10AP two-post lift offers exceptional direct-drive lifting performance. This industrial-strength car lift guarantees cutting-edge technology, top of the line materials, a design that's ahead of its time and a 10,000-lb. lifting capacity.
Auto repair shops working on the latest technology need to be equipped with the latest and most advanced tools to service them properly; they need to evolve alongside the vehicles they service. BendPak's all-new AP series of two-post lifts feature a revolutionary design that factors the best qualities of today's two-post lift types into a completely new concept in car lift engineering. The result is a lift unlike any other two-post lift on the market, purposefully designed for extreme use, high loads and operator safety and efficiency.
Our 10AP Series offers the convenience of wide or narrow installation wrapped up into one configurable package. This durable, safe, and reliable car lift features an expandable top beam and Bi-Metric™ arms to suit virtually every vehicle lifting requirement – symmetric or asymmetric. The simple, yet highly sophisticated lift design keeps service and maintenance costs to a minimum, delivering lower operating expenses and higher productivity.
Swing arm restraints have been used for decades on two-post lifts to minimize the chance of arms shifting during vehicle loading and service. However, until now, these systems had a difficult time withstanding the excessive forces applied to them when vehicles suddenly and unexpectedly shifted on the support pads or adapters of the far-reaching swing arms; typically due to improper loading or when heavy drivetrain components are added or removed from elevated vehicles causing an unanticipated transference in the center of balance.
A significant design feature that makes BendPak’s AP series particularly well-suited for heavy vehicle service is a revolutionary Automatic Swing Arm Restraint System (ASARS) that has been bolstered to withstand these elevated pushing and pulling forces that occur when vehicles are being serviced.
With a full 360-degrees of load holding grip, the heavily forged-steel design of this patented and very exclusive arm restraint system secures the lift arms firmly in place with over 2000-pounds of load-holding force, preventing unplanned swing arm movement during lift use and vehicle service operations. This revolutionary design is an adaptive system that requires minimal operator involvement and delivers unparalleled holding power. A distinctive power-hold design that allows for precise non-shifting action, and a handy quick‑release operator lever allowing for the instant release of the clamping pressure.
Revolutionary and patented swing arms are specifically tailored for varying vehicle lifting points. Unlike traditional two-post lift arms, 10AP arms retract shorter and extend farther; offering lift operators a myriad of lift arm positioning options ― it’s like having the best of all worlds.
The innovative three-stage arms achieve more telescoping movement due to their patented nesting feature that results in greater retraction and farther reach. Inner sliding arm movement is no longer impeded by arm end plates, tube closeouts, or even the arm pivot pin itself. The inner tubes retract fully through the back of the arm assembly end even beyond the arm pin, resulting in more achievable retraction and extension.
BendPak's exclusive Low-Pro™ swing arms feature telescoping channels that have a shorter profile and a dropped-end pad receiver resulting in better serviceability on lowered chassis-height vehicles. They access hard-to-reach lift points with less hindrance providing increased versatility and less chance of damage to vehicle side skirts, running boards or ground effects. Varying height stackable adapters combined with two stage spin-up screw pads provide greater vertical pad placement for precise and safe vehicle support.
Double-telescoping screw adapters feature gouge and tear-resistant polyurethane pads that can be screwed up or down to ensure level lifting in all conditions. Provides more precise and secure frame engagement, ensuring technician safety. 2.5" and 5" stackable adapters that are available as optional accessories provide greater vertical pad placement for precise and safe vehicle support. The drop-in design allows for quick and easy use, and 2 column mounted racks keep the adapters neatly organized and secure.
The patented automatic safety lock system is designed to dramatically improve operator efficiency and safety. The simple yet innovative design ensures automatic safety lock engagement during all lift rising operations, and an ergonomic single-point release allows operators to effortlessly release the safety locks during lift descent ― literally with a push of a single finger. It’s that easy.
Exclusive Bi-Metric™ adaptable swing arms give users the ability to set their lift up in either symmetric or asymmetric configurations. The 2-in-1 design gives operators the option of loading vehicles either symmetrically (centerline of vehicle at column) or asymmetrically (centerline of vehicle behind column). By not having to switch out arms, you’ll be able to service vehicles faster than ever before.
