BendPak PCL-18B (Set of 4)

18,000 lb. Capacity per Column / Portable (Set of 4) / 3-Phase Only
This PCL-18B mobile column lift system comes in a set of 4. When combined, the system lifts up to 72,000 lbs. Sets of 6 and 8 are also available. A minimum of 4 mobile column lifts must be used to lift a vehicle, and heavier vehicles require 6 or 8. Do not attempt to lift half of a vehicle (the front or back only) with only 2 mobile lifts.

  • 18,000-lb. individual column capacity 
  • Meets or exceeds the standards prescribed by ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011
  • Four, six or eight column configurations can accommodate heavy duty trucks and light duty passenger vehicles
  • 208-240V, 3-phase main power system - optional voltages available upon request
  • SINGLE, PAIR or TEAM operation
  • For a standard four-column set, just three 30' cables are used leaving the front or back of the lift clear of cable obstructions
  • Simple operation, long service life and minimum maintenance
  • Intuitive controls allow the lift to be fully programmed and controlled from any column
  • Control systems feature 24-volt safety circuitry
  • The PLC and main system components are standard off-the-shelf brands rather than proprietary printed circuit boards or controls, which can be very expensive to service or replace
  • Smart electronics feature self-diagnostics and self-calibration functions
  • Sealed and enclosed linear potentiometers feature precision potentiometric output and high-frequency response for precise synchronization and communication of all columns throughout all operation cycles for precise, level lifting
  • Variable height limit settings can be programmed for shops with low ceilings or when specific vehicle service requirements necessitate specific rise heights
  • Two-speed lowering option – turtle or rabbit speed settings
  • Each column is equipped with a warning light and audible alarm for critical warning alerts
  • Emergency shut-off switches on each column quickly shut off power to the lift in the event an unsafe condition is detected by the operator
  • Separate key lock enclosure on each column
  • Electronics are multi-fuse protected
  • An enclosed electric-hydraulic power system that ensures quieter operation is better suited for sound-sensitive areas
  • Pallet-jack style steering wheels enable the columns to be lowered firmly on the floor vs. constantly loaded spring-type steering wheels that can cause columns to roll when unladen by the weight of a vehicle
  • Low-mounted power units and cylinders means a lower center of gravity, making the columns easier to move and less likely to topple vs. screw-drive systems with heavy overhead motors and drive systems
  • Extended forks accommodate wide tires and deep wheel configurations
  • Multi-width wheel forks with locking pins accommodate the widest range of wheels, eliminating the need for specialty wheel adapters
  • Tandem 8” diameter polyurethane covered steel wheels with sealed roller bearings easily roll over dirt and debris
  • Heavy-duty steel carriage rollers feature turned, ground and polished axle pins
  • Manual safety override valves on each column permit the lift to be lowered in the event of a power outage without the need for manual hand cranks
  • Durable forklift pockets provide simplistic handling when moving the lift columns from one facility to another
  • Inverted hydraulic cylinders feature an integrated safety valve to prevent accidental uncontrolled lowering in the event of oil pressure loss
  • Multiple, automatic, independent safety locks spaced every four inches ensure safe operation
  • Space-saving design, reduced column weight and a tight turning radius provides improved mobility
  • Use the lift to place vehicles on tall jack stands then use the columns to raise another vehicle in an adjoining bay
  • Durable powder coat finish
