ease of use, our dual-synchro equalization system and user-friendly controls are the stuff of
The "D" in XPR-12FD stands for the dual "direct-drive" low-pressure cylinders that minimize
leakage and reduce the workload placed on the entire hydraulic system. This exclusive
BendPak design feature saves you maintenance costs throughout the life of your hoist—you
aren't going to find friendly sensibility like this anywhere else. Some more BendPak
XPR-Series exclusives include: 16 individual maintenance-free UHMW load bearings,
single-piece columns, extra-tall lifting carriages and oversize 6" cable sheaves. And, to
better cater to your specific lifting needs, we offer similar model car lifts with optional
specialty arm configurations.
The entire XPR-Series is a reflection of BendPak's continuing commitment to producing lifts
of only the highest quality, maximum safety and utmost reliability. Featuring the most
advanced engineered technology available in the industry, these lifts are built to safety
standards well above normal OSHA/ALI/ETL requirements. The XPR-Series hoists include a

Need a wider drive-thru clearance for bigger vehicles or something a little slimmer to
maximize your floor space? Consider the 2 post car hoists the XPR-9D and XPR-9.
Every XPR-12FD comes with:
Direct-Drive two-post car hoist technology
BendPak two-post car hoists feature low-pressure HVLP direct-drive cylinders eliminating
the need for lifting chains or screw mechanisms most commonly found on othercar hoist
designs. Dual HVLP low-pressure cylinders minimize leakage and offer better reliability,
smoother operation and less maintenance costs throughout the life of your lift.
High-volume, low-pressure equates to less workload placed on the entire hydraulic system.
Direct-Drive technology is preferred on commercial-grade two post car lifts as it has it has
fewer moving parts than a chain-over-roller cylinder configuration. Pressurized hydraulic
fluid flows from the power-unit, through the hollow cylinder rods then enters the cylinder
body and fills the inside cavity. The pressure of the hydraulic fluid extends the piston rod
downward raising the cylinder body and lift carriages. A dual-synchro equalization system
maintains equal lifting and provides operators with a stable, level vehicle working condition.
Triple-telescoping arm set
Three-stage front and three-stage rear arms provide maximum reach, as well as minimum
retraction. Use this super-duty lift system for raising standard passenger vehicles and
16-Piece Adapter Set / Standard
Others might charge extra for these necessary adapters, but they're standard with every
XPR-Series heavy-duty model. Multi-piece set includes four 6" stackable adapters, four 3"
stackable adapters, four polyurethane contact pads and four frame cradle pads. Ideal for
trucks and vans with running boards or auxiliary fuel tanks.
Lowered arm tube supports
To minimize the chance of damaging vehicles with low-hanging vehicle doors, we
completely redesigned our arm tube supports to allow for better clearance.
Automatic arm restraints
Each arm is equipped with durable arm restraints that automatically engage each time the
lift is raised. When the lift is lowered, the gear arm restraints automatically disengage to
provide easy positioning of the lift arms.
Taller lift carriages
Take a close look at our lift carriages (the lifting assembly that the arms are attached to)
and then take a look at the competition. You'll notice our 53" tall carriages are
considerably taller than most, which minimizes the stress placed on the load bearings and
Maintenance-free load bearings
Rather than using roller bearings that need to be constantly lubricated, every XPR-Series lift
carriage uses high-tech UHMW (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) load bearings
that never need lubrication and are designed to last the entire life of the lift.
We purposely manufacture the columns using single-piece construction for added strength
and less fatigue under heavy load conditions.
Dual direct-drive technology By utilizing two, low-pressure HVLP direct-drive cylinders,
we've eliminated the need for lifting chains or screw mechanisms most commonly found on
other lift designs. HVLP direct-drive technology offers better reliability, smoother operation
and less maintenance. High-volume, low-pressure equates to less workload placed on the
entire hydraulic system.
Single-point safety release
The single point safety release and "dead man" style operation controls makes every one of
our XPR-Series lifts easy to operate and safe to use.
On the level
Our dual-synchro equalization system maintains equal lifting and provides operators with a
stable, level vehicle working condition.
Industrial-grade hydraulic cylinders
Integrated into every XPR-Series hydraulic cylinder is a one-piece, pilot fitted, machined
steel piston that is wrapped with specially designed, pressure loaded U-cup piston seals,
backups and wear bands that virtually eliminate any 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
Free-flow, high-pressure 3/8" hydraulic lines, a high-flow pump and integrated AC power-unit
increase ascent and descent speed rates for enhanced productivity.
Durable powder-coat finish
All XPR-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.
Included with every lift are detailed installation and maintenance instructions, graphic
safety decals, maintenance decals, vehicle lifting point guide and a safety instruction
placard to train personnel on proper safety procedures and maintenance guidelines.
