DP18 – Heavy Duty Two-Post Lift

DP18 Heavy Duty Two-Post Lift Features:
The DP18 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 18,000 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 DP18 comes with eight high strength 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 DP18 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!
