Bendpak 14,000 lb Alignment Lifts
Open-Front Design and 14,000 Lbs. of Might
We engineered the HDSO14AX alignment lift without a front
crossbar, so operators can easily enter and exit from beneath the
vehicle. Now the process of front-end adjustment becomes quick
and trouble-free. This is a must for busy alignment bays.
Additionally, for precise front-lift leveling, nothing beats our
patented adjustable front outrigger tubes. The infinitely adjustable
pitch compensates for excessive loads and sloped floors.
Features on HDSO14AX Alignment Lift Models
Multi-caster slip plates in the back and turn plates in front allow for
extremely precise, free-floating alignment.
Dual recessed turn plate pockets allow you to position the
corrosion-resistant galvanized turn plates in the location best
suited for individual vehicle positioning. This provides more
clearance for equipment installations.
Dual-hub cable sheaves
BendPak alignment lifts come standard with robust 10-1/2”
diameter cable sheaves within the runway and cross tubes and
2-1/4” diameter sheave axles that are equally durable. Both
contribute to the longevity and low-maintenance cost of owning
and operating your car lift.
Heavy-duty aircraft cable
A 1/2” diameter 6 x 25 aircraft-quality stainless-steel lifting cable
runs through each of the four columns. Designed for non-stop use
and totally resistant to rubbing and other abrasions (i.e. weather,
chemicals, hydraulic oil and fluids).
Adjustable height locking positions
Get your alignment lift to just the right height. No need to reach or
bend for the turn plates; each post column features a lock position
every few inches for your convenience.
Grease fittings are included on all BendPak four-post lifts, so you
can focus on the alignment of your wheels and not worry about the
lubrication of your cable sheaves. BendPak makes it easy to keep
an eye on your grease nipples, which only require periodic
maintenance. Just peek inside the lift structure before, during or
after using your alignment lift and see how the operation is flowing.
In the extremely unlikely event of a hose rupture, BendPak’s
unique hydraulic flow divider provides a safe, even descent, thus
keeping your alignment lift structure safe and ready to go after you
address the situation. We highly doubt you will ever encounter this
situation with any of our car lifts.
Spring-loaded safety locks
As the alignment lift rises to your preferred service level, springs
engage the locks at each ladder position. The adjustable nature of
the spring-loaded multi-lock structure, a design found only on
BendPak alignment lifts, offers you the comfort of knowing that
you’re safe to lift, even if there’s a slight slope in your garage.
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 provide years of trouble-free
Secondary lock system
A slack-cable lock is your backup safety mechanism that’s ready at
all times to shut off the alignment lift in the event of dangerous
All cables, sheaves and airlines, as well as the single hydraulic
cylinder, run internally through the lift structure. This optimizes
aesthetics and safety in way that has come to define the BendPak
Electric-hydraulic power system
The electric-hydraulic power system features ergonomically
located controls for easy operator access during repetitive daily
use. No maintenance necessary!
Even if your alignment lift runways get wet or oil-stained, your
vehicles will rotate on the turn plates without slipping off the
ramps. The runway surface is rugged enough to hold vehicles no
matter what other pushing, bumping or other craziness occurs in
Longer approach ramps
Longer ramps make it easier to load low-stance vehicles onto the
car lift structure. Alignments on these vehicle types are no hassle,
and of course, larger vehicles glide on just as easily.
Flexible protective conduit
An extra-tough, flexible conduit protects all airlines and hydraulic
hoses from daily wear. Your alignment lift is safer and operations
can be handled more confidently when you know your cables won’t
deliver sudden, unfortunate electric shocks, ruptures or fluid leaks.
Rolling bridge jacks
Optional rolling jacks make a great addition to increase service
capacity. Bridge jacks raise the front or back of vehicles (or use
two jacks to raise the entire car), so wheel and brake service can
be performed without moving to a two-post lift or scissor lift.
Telescoping arms and frame contact pads extend over runways
and target the vehicle frame’s lifting points. Runways are fully
adjustable for different tread widths. Three locking positions offer
additional operator control.

ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011 or ANSI/UL 201. Consult www.autolift.org for
