Lift won’t raise

If the lift won’t lift … that’s really going to be a problem! Here are some possible causes and solutions.

Lift lowers slowly 

When the work is done and it’s time to get the vehicle back to the customer, the last thing you need is an unusually slow lift. Here are some potential causes and solutions for a lift that lowers more slowly than normal.

If a vehicle becomes stranded in the air after all mechanical locks have been released and you’ve followed all standard operating procedures, immediately stop using the lift, check to make sure all locking positions are secure and contact the factory or factory-approved service center.

As you can see, many common issues can be prevented by proper maintenance. Keep your lift clean and well-maintained for a long service life.
