When you need to add versatility and productivity to your shop or garage, your first stop should always be BendPak. The X-Rack XR-12AE is the mighty 12,000-lb. scissor lift that won't hog your precious floorspace and fits nicely into narrower bays. It easily accommodates dual-wheeled and extended wheelbase trucks and provides the fantastic convenience of a full-fledged wheel alignment lift. Like our four-post wheel alignment lifts, the X-12AE features front turn plates and rear slip plates built right into the runways. The wheels always respond to your adjustments with no resistance or hassle. We call it "free floating." You'll call it unbelievably easy. Two versions of the XR-12AE are available: the surface mount and a special flush mount. Flush mount installations provide zero drive-on approach and are perfect for even the lowest profile vehicle. It's just another reason that you can bet on BendPak lifts for increased durability, safety and productivity. Our lifts are second to none and recognized the world-over as benchmarks of dependability and quality. Heck, it's how we got our slogan.
Full-floating, super-duty front truck turn plates
Quickly measure the front end wheel alignment on cars and trucks. Easy-to-read scale helps you read caster, camber and steering wheel alignment. Dual, full-circumference rows of Delrin® full-floating ball bearings for full-wheel movement without resistance. Delrin bridges the gap between metals and ordinary plastics with a unique combination of strength, stiffness, hardness, dimensional stability, toughness, fatigue resistance, solvent resistance, fuel resistance, abrasion resistance, low wear and low friction. Plates adjust 0-45° to the left and right.
Full-floating, flush-mount rear slip plates
Durable, "balls-up," flush-mount, full-floating slip plates feature oversized roller balls that rotate beneath each slip plate and not on the deck surface, resulting in maintenance-free, reliable performance.
Retractable work steps
Hidden yet easy-to-reach retractable work step under the front of each runway gives you easy access to under hood and steering wheel adjustments.
Large twin interlocking multi-toothed mechanical safety racks keep the load secured under all conditions with multiple locking positions.
Electric / hydraulic power system
We incorporate maintenance-free electric hydraulic power systems into each lift for ultimate dependability, and all controls are conveniently located within close reach.
Large base frame
Heavy boxed-steel formed base frame provides solid stability.
Each scissor lift is equipped with 4 hydraulic cylinders for maximum performance, reliability and precise leveling. The quad-cylinder design maintains constant level and safety using cross flow hydraulic technology, pressure flow control and integrated velocity fuses. Our industrial-grade hydraulic cylinders feature a single-piece, pilot fitted, machined steel piston, wrapped with specially designed, pressure loaded U-cup piston seals, backups and wear bands to virtually eliminate 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-designed 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. An integrated flow restrictor provides a controlled descent in the case of an unexpected hose rupture.
Durable powder-coat finish
All X-Racks 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.
Gives you maximum grip, even when the runway surface is wet or oily.
Longer approach ramps
These approach ramps were designed a little longer to help when loading low ground clearance vehicles. They also feature built-in, pull-out extensions to provide you with even more clearance for low ride-height vehicles. When it comes time to lock the shop up, simply fold up the ramps and stow them out of the way. It's the little bit that makes a big difference.
*Not all BendPak lift models meet the standards as prescribed by ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2006 or ANSI/UL 201. Consult www.autolift.org for complete listings or contact BendPak via firstname.lastname@example.org.
