Most two post lifts come with limitations. They either have a weight limit that doesn’t allow you to service certain vehicles, or they have dimensions that make them hard to install in many shops due to their height or footprint. Our DP15 Two Post Lift takes care of those issues to let you expand the range of vehicles you can service—which lets you expand your profitability.
What types of vehicles can the DP15 handle?
Cars. Trucks. Vans. Small buses. Practically anything up to 15,000 pounds. It’s low-profile, two-stage arms also come with lightweight adapters to help you lift this wide range of vehicles, as well as to give you maximum flexibility while spotting.
How does it handle such a wide range?
The DP15 comes standard with eight aircraft-grade aluminum truck adapter extensions. These help you reach the recommended pickup points on larger vehicles. And they’re what give you the opportunity to expand your shop’s capabilities.
But the adapters are hard to handle, right?
That’s true on a lot of lifts, but not the DP15. Its adapter extensions are capable of heavy duty jobs without the heavy weight, so they’re easy to position. Plus, they’re stored in a column bracket when they’re not in use, so they’ll always be handy when you need them.
The DP15 doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Is that because it uses older lift systems?
No. Not at all. In fact, the DP15 features our unique Direct-Pull Lift Technology. This replaces the push cylinders that are common in lift columns with direct-pull cylinders. By protecting the cylinder rod inside the carriage when lowered and inside the cylinder housing when raised, the Direct-Pull Lift Technology provides high efficiency and low maintenance. It’s also the best mechanical advantage against side loading, which is one of the most common causes of cylinder leaks.
How stable is it?
The DP15 features high-strength, heavy-gauge, symmetrical steel columns that come on substantial base plate foundations—so it provides stability and support for years to come once it’s installed.
How tall is it?
You can purchase the DP15 in three different heights, so it can meet the needs of your shop no matter how much headroom your shop has.
What else comes with the DP15?
It features a single-point lock release that lets you easily lower vehicles. It also features a closed loop hydraulic system to protect against hydraulic contamination.
Is it tested and certified by the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) to ensure it meets industry safety and performance standards?
Of course it is.
