No one surpasses us in quality and safety. Not now, not ever. When you get a Ascenta, you get more than just a fantastic hoist. You get peace of mind. That’s the Ascenta benefit.

Clearfloor convenience
Our clearfloor models provide unobstructed floor space allowing technicians to easily move toolboxes, transmission jacks, oil drains and other equipment underneath the elevated vehicle.

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 unibody construction, OEM recommended pick-up points and wide and / or narrow wheelbase configurations.

Optional column extension
Gives you the flexibility of increasing the overhead clearance to maximize the vehicles you can service. This column extension is an optional accessory and has an extra charge.

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

Included truck and van adapters
Others might charge extra for these necessary adapters, but they’re standard with every 4000-Series hoist. Ideal for trucks and vans with running boards or auxiliary fuel tanks.

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

Automatic arm restraints
Each arm is equipped with durable arm restraints that automatically engage each time the vehicle hoist is raised. When the 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 hoist carriages (the lifting assembly that the arms are attached to) and then 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 4000-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 purposely manufacture the columns using single-piececonstruction for added strength and less fatigue under heavy load conditions.

Dual direct-drive technology
By utilizing two, low-pressure HVLP direct-drive cylinders, we’ve eliminated the need for lifting chains or screw mechanisms most commonly found on other car hoist designs. HVLP direct-drive technology offers better reliability, smoother operation and less maintenance. High-volume, low-pressure equates to less workload placed on the entire hydraulic system.

Single-point safety release

The single point safety release and “dead man” style operation controls makes every one of our Ascenta 4000-Series 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.

Auto shutoff
A rigid, padded safety shutoff bar automatically stops the hoist should a vehicle come in contact with overhead structure.

Industrial-grade hydraulic cylinders
Integrated into every Ascenta 4000 -Series hydrauliccylinder 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, to ensure superior cylinder operation and life. The superior-design high durometer, mechanically-loaded rod seals make rod leakage 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 Ascenta 4000-Series 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 curingprocess 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.

Detailed instructions
Included with every vehicle hoist are detailed fitout 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.
