Every 4000BX two-post car hoist comes with:

Low-profile, dropped-end frame contact pads
Squeeze under even the lowest compact and sport vehicles.

Free truck and van adapters
Other hoist manufacturers might charge extra for these necessary adapters, but come standard with every 4000BX Series Car Hoist. Ideal for use with trucks and vans that employ running boards or auxiliary fuel tanks.

Triple-telescoping front arms and two-stage rear arms
Increases overall arm positioning for lifting a variety of different wheel base vehicles. Overall arm sweep and minimum arm reach are also extended to precisely lift vehicles that have one body construction, OEM recommended pick-up points and wide and / or narrow wheelbase configurations.

Lowered arm tube supports
To minimize the chance of damaging vehicles with low-hanging vehicle doors, we completely redesigned our two-post hoist arm tube supports to allow for better clearance.

Automatic arm restraints
Each lifting arm is equipped with durable hoist arm restraints that automatically engage each time the hoist is raised. When the two-post car hoist is lowered, the gear arm restraints automatically disengage to provide easy positioning of the hoist arms.

Taller hoist carriages
Take a close look at our two-post car hoist carriages (the lifting assembly that the arms are attached to). Now take a look at the competition. You’ll notice our 53” tall carriages are considerably taller than most, which minimizes the stress placed on the load bearings and columns.

Maintenance-free load bearings
Rather than using roller bearings that need to be constantly lubricated, every 4000BX Series Hoist carriage uses high-tech UHMW (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) load bearings that never need lubrication and are designed to last the entire life of the car hoist.

Single-piece columns
We specifically manufacture the columns using single-piece construction for added strength and less fatigue under heavy load conditions.

Wide or narrow selection
Wide or narrow car hoist configurations are available, allowing you to maximize your floor space.

Single-point safety release
The single point safety release and “dead man” style operation controls make every one of our 4000BX Series Car & Truck Hoists easy to operate and safe to use.

On the level
Our dual-synchro equalization system maintains equal lifting and provides operators with a stable, level vehicle working condition.

Industrial-grade hydraulic cylinders
Integrated into every 4000BX Series hydraulic cylinder is a one-piece, pilot fitted, machined steel piston that is wrapped with specially designed, pressure loaded U-cup piston seals, backups and wear bands that virtually eliminate any fluid bypass. The micro-smooth chrome rod is machined from high-yield, ground and polished C-1045/50 micro-alloy steel and plated to a minimum of .001” diametrically, ensuring superior cylinder operation and life. The superior high durometer, mechanically-loaded rod seals make rod leakage is a thing of the past while a specially formulated abrasion-resistant urethane rod wiper provides exclusion protection. The welded cylinder body is made from robust steel tubing produced to exceed ASTM specifications. This combination of superb base material and superior processing ensures that the cylinders remain straight, smooth and last a very long time.

High-speed hydraulics
Free-flow, high-pressure 3/8” hydraulic lines, a high-flow pump and integrated AC power-unit increase ascent and descent speed rates for enhanced productivity.
Durable powder-coat finish
All 4000BX Series Car Hoists feature a durable powder-coat finish that gives the metal a high-quality, extremely durable finish which can withstand even the harshest environmental or chemical conditions. Unlike other companies that claim to powder coat, we take pride in our meticulous 10-step process. First, all parts are visually inspected before being sandblasted. Afterwards, the parts are washed in our 5-stage phosphate tanks that can accommodate parts up to 25’ long. Once cleaned, they’re immediately dried to avoid rust production, and then outgassed. Outgassing pre-bakes the parts in a curing oven, reducing the possibility of blemishes that may be hiding in the pores of the metal. If not properly outgassed, imperfections in the metal may bubble during the curing process and most likely will cause chips in the powder. After the parts are washed and outgassed, any surfaces and / or threaded holes that need to be masked or plugged, are done so with high-temperature masking tape and silicone plugs. Next, the parts are given a quick thinner wipe to remove any light debris or fingerprints, before being hung on an electrostatically grounded conveyor line. The powder is finally applied using an electrostatic spray gun. The powder “sticks” to the surface in a fashion similar to how dust sticks to a television screen. Once the parts are powder coated, the carts are rolled into our curing oven and baked at 400° F for 45 minutes.

Included with every Ascenta car and truck hoist are detailed installation and maintenance instructions, graphic safety decals, maintenance decals, vehicle lifting point guide and a safety instruction placard to train personnel on proper safety procedures and maintenance guidelines.
