DP15 – Heavy Duty Two-Post Lift

DP15 Heavy-Duty Two-Post Lift Features:
The DP15 is constructed of high strength heavy gauge steel columns. Large gusseting on substantial base plate foundations provide the stability and support you want for a heavy truck lift. With a capacity of 15,000 pounds, your shop can start working on work trucks, vans, or small buses along with everything else that rolls through the door.

Truck Adapter Extensions:
The DP15 comes with eight aircraft grade aluminum truck adapter extensions. Four 5” and four 10” adapters allow you to lift a wide range of vehicles. These are heavy-duty adapters without the “heavy”. Because they’re made of aluminum you’ll be able to place and maneuver them without strain. They have a convenient column bracket for storage.

Arms: Forward’s heavy-duty two-post DP15 has two-stage arms that can easily be extended and retracted while lying on the floor spotting a vehicle. Couple that with the light adapter extensions and you win the spotting large vehicle battle!

2-STAGE ARMS with heavy-duty reinforced gusseting
• Extended and retracted from 61” to 38”
• 5 1/2” minimum adapter height from floor

Extended Height Model Options:
The DP15 offers three different height options, for the lowest ceiling option DP15N000 the overhead cross member mounts directly to the column without a column extension to fit a 155 ¾” (12’-11 ¾”) ceiling height. The standard height DP15N001 fits a 176” (14’-8”) ceiling height and the extended height DP15N002 fits a 200” (16’-8”) ceiling height. With all these options it’s easy to choose the best package to fit into your existing shop.
