Bendpak 2 post 10,000# Lift

" Very disappointed with the Quality of this product. I contacted Bendpak to recommend an Installer and went with their recommendation. The Installer did a great job, the Lift they installed had numerous factory defects that the Installer had to deal with:
1. The paint on the inside of the rails flaked off in sheets when the lift was cycled. It appears that the manufacturer spray painted touch up paint over the Powder Coat paint and it all came off in large chunks as the unit cycled (and continues to come off today).
2. The microswitch box at the top of the lift that prevents the vehicle from being lifted too high was welded in the wrong place thus making the switch inoperable. Bendpak told me that they have a fix for this as they have "seen it before".
3. The Release hold down mechanism has to be held in with a lot of force (must lean into it with all your weight to get the opposite side of the lift to properly release as the vehicle is going down. When I asked Bendpak to correct this they sent me an electronic schematic and said the cable must be off the pulley. I told them it was installed correctly (cable is on). The Installer had difficulty with it and during the install had to disassemble and file excessive paint that was binding it up. It was reinstalled but to this day still requires excessive force to release it. A 130# person is barely enough weight to release it.
4. The unit was delivered to the Installer before bringing to the job site to prep it for installation. It arrived with a 12" gash in the paint on the post. The Installer said it arrived that way, Bendpak said it didn't leave their shop like that. Bendpak sent me a spray can of touch up and now you can see the touch up paint versus the scratch.
5. The screws that hold the covers on both the right and left release mechanisms were missing. The Installer used other screws only to find the threads on the holes were also painted so heavily that the screws would not go into it. One screw broke off in the hole while installing.
This is not what I expect from a product. I will be buying additional lifts but not from Bendpak until they correct their Manufacturing processes/Quality Control issues.

Good lift with cosmetic issues...

" While this is an excellent lift for what it does, there are numerous spots on the inside of the columns where the painter just sprayed right over rust, and the bubbles are visible. If this lift was installed in a humid environment (it isn't) I would worry about the rust worsening and leaving a rough surface for the carriage guide blocks to move over, leading to increased wear on the guide blocks. I'd say buy this lift, but give it a good look over before you install so you can fix the prep and paint issues before you put it in service.
On another note, Bend-Pak customer service is excellent. I accidentally kinked a hydraulic hose while installing, and they sent me a new one ($80 value) for FREE via UPS Ground! "

" I wish I had the garage space to buy one of my own. Recently helped a friend install this unit in his garage to work on his roadsters. He has a dozen old british cars that constantly need maintenance and getting under them with a jack is a challenge. We put this together in just over 6 hours, including sinking giant lag bolts into the concrete to hold it in place. Picks his 3000 pound cars up with easy. Reassuring CLICK noise as it ratchets up so even if the pulleys give way you know your car is safe. I've seen lifts for less money but none looked as well built as this model. "
