    Ready to lift a bus, dump truck and some truly heavy farm equipment? You may just need the HDS-18E, BendPak’s 18,000-lb. capacity four-post truck lift that also handles your low-rise sports cars and compacts with ease.

    BendPak's HDS-18E four-post lift is engineered to make light work out of heavy lifting. It’s built to last and features upgrades that increase safety, durability and productivity. This is the lift that graduates from the class of mid-size trucks, vans and SUVs up to heavy-duty applications. This is a professional car lift that can even handle some industrial and farming equipment. It’s also lighter-duty than other lifts in the truck-weight category, so it’s not overkill when you don’t need, for instance, 20 tons of lift capacity when 9 tons will do just fine.

    To accommodate long wheelbases, the HDS-18E offers extended runways that are 263” front-to-back. This is the first of the heavy-duty models to offer extended runways. All 27K, 35K and 40K lifts are built this way. Better-gripping runways ensure the massive tires on your massive vehicles stay put. If the runways gets slick, their treaded surfaces are still able to grab the wheels without damaging or marring them.
