Forward Thinkers Choose Four-Post Lifts

 If you’re looking for an all-around shop workhorse then you’re thinking about a Forward Lift Four-Post Lift. The ability to drive right onto, lift and service your vehicle is the main stay of a traditional lift, such as a four-post. There’s a variety of accessories that make the lift more than just a drive on. You can lift, align service, or store with a four-post. They do take up more space in a shop, however they provide a peace of mind that can’t be duplicated with any other lift.

The four sturdy posts each with locking mechanisms provide a stable platform to keep anything on. Lift a Fire Truck, sure you can, and feel confident walking under it to perform any job. We provide safe and reliable four-post lifts for independent repair shops, car dealerships, body shops, national accounts, home enthusiasts, hobbyists, and heavy-duty truck facilities. You’ll find plenty to think about when choosing a four-post lift below.

What Forward Thinkers look for in a 4-post lift.

You look for solid construction and we have that, with our sturdy cable systems and network of pulleys you won’t have to worry about problems once the lift is installed. Unlike other lifts that just throw more weight at the overall structure, we engineer performance into our lifts. Powder coated paint finishes and textured surfaces also keep your lift looking great for years to come. Greaseless pivot pins and sheave systems mean you work more on the vehicle being lifted rather than the lift.

A Four Post lift once installed becomes a fixture in your shop; you’ll use it more than just for lifting cars or trucks. You’ll pull engines; use it to hang drying parts from. Utilize the columns to mount brackets to store tools on or mount hose reels on for easy access. The traditional four-post lift becomes more than just a lifting machine, it becomes a Forward Thinkers machine.
