The HDS-18E is a professional car lift that can even handle some industrial and farming equipment. It’s also lighter-duty than other lifts in the truck-weight category, so it’s not overkill when you don’t need, for instance, 20 tons of lift capacity when 9 tons will do just fine.


Extended runways: Extended runways that are 263" front-to-back. Better-gripping runways ensure the massive tires on your massive vehicles stay put. If the runways gets slick, their treaded surfaces are still able to grab the wheels without damaging or marring them.


Large base plates: ​12"x​12" provide a solid foundation and inspire the confidence to work on virtually any-size vehicle up to the rated weight capacity.


Dual-hub cable sheaves: ​12" diameter cable sheaves within the runway and cross tubes, combined with massive ​4" diameter sheave axles, dramatically improve cable wear and critical component lifespan, meaning this car lift increases your safety.


Heavy-duty aircraft cable: Four​ galvanized lifting cables that do an excellent job of providing abrasion resistance and preventing fatigue.


Built-in lubrication: Grease nipples are located on every sheave and sheave axle to make lubrication maintenance a breeze.


Spring-loaded safety locks: Spring-loaded safety locks automatically engage continuously during rise, and adjustable safety ladders allow for precise runway leveling.


Push-button pneumatic lock release: A simple push-button pneumatic lock release makes lowering operations simple and fast.


Secondary lock system: A secondary lock system is on constant guard and acts as a slack-cable device in the unlikely event of an unexpected cable failure.


Integrated design: Lifting cables, airlines, safety latches and sheaves all fully enclosed within the structure.


Adjustable height locking positions: Adjustable locking positions for variable-height parking and infinite leveling.


Electric-hydraulic power system: A maintenance-free electric-hydraulic power system assures ultimate dependability. All controls on the HDS-18E are conveniently located within easy reach.
