Adapted lifting arms to accommodate lower-profile, smaller and longer vehicles
Adapted lifting arms with double articulation, designed specifically to accommodate vehicles up to 4600kg (with 5500kg models on the way!)

Could I install a platform vehicle lift for servicing electric vehicles?
Drive-on platform vehicle lifts, such as a scissor lift or 4-post lift, are convenient and safe, with good lifting capacities. Whilst platform lift models offer good access to diagnostics, headlamps, wheel alignment and some other functions, engineers may find that access to brakes, suspension and the battery pack is obstructed by the lift platform.
