BendPak HDS-40 - Four-Post - 40000 lb. Capacity 5175176

Product Overview:


The HDS-40 four-post lift is the safest, beefiest, biggest, baddest, meanest and every other “-est” word for a truck lift we can use to mean, “It doesn’t get better than this.” This extreme heavy-duty four-post lift can support the weight of a Greyhound™ bus, as well as a mobile home or RV.

The Only Heavy-Duty Car Lift You’ll Ever Need

An HDS-40 four-post lift lets you wrench on absolutely massive vehicles. Nothing in BendPak’s lineup has this much brute force to accompany the same features found on our other heavy-duty lifts. That means the ergonomic controls, massive sheaves, over-engineered lift components and aircraft-quality cables are all here to guarantee the ultimate lifting experience.

Extended runways
Car lifts with longer runways are less prone to causing accidental vehicle damage. For our largest four-post lift, we make sure the most massive 40K trucks and commercial vehicles can safely make their way onto the ramps for service.

Dual-hub cable sheaves
Car lifts with longer runways are less prone to causing accidental vehicle damage. For our largest Truck lift sheaves are made 12” in diameter with 4” diameter sheave axles and are necessarily over-engineered for safer lifting. They’re low-maintenance and low-cost for the entire lifespan of your lift. All four sheaves rotate in perfect synchronization to achieve a smooth, even lift, 100% of the time.

Heavy-duty aircraft cable
BendPak’s heavy-duty, 3/4” diameter, 6 x 25 galvanized lifting cables are expertly engineered to withstand the weights of fully loaded full-size flatbeds and city buses. The cables are completely resistant to rust and chemical reactions, as well as environmental factors such as heat, humidity, air particulate, etc. And since this is a BendPak cable we’re talking about, it requires very little maintenance over time.

Built-in lubrication
To keep your cables sliding gently through the sheaves, self-lubricating grease nipples are fitted through the sheave and sheave axle for many years of optimum performance. We keep the grease where it belongs: along the sheave, not on your floor.

Flow restrictor
A flow restrictor is built in to the hydraulic cylinder, providing a safe descent in the rare (and very unlikely) event of a catastrophic hose rupture. Even in the worst-case scenario, your truck lift will gently descend and safely touch down on the ground. Chances are you’ll never have to see this feature at work, but we engineered it just in case.

Large base plates
Truck lift base plates are made a little wider than the bases of our lighter-duty models: 12 x 12 plate dimensions are sturdy and can be easily bolted into suitable concrete flooring for years of extreme security. No wobbles, no worries.

Spring-loaded safety locks
As the lift ascends, adjustable safety locks audibly click into place at multiple levels. This lets you choose your preferred service lifting point and accommodate for uneven floors. 13 lock positions make for an incredibly safe and versatile four-post lift.

Push-button pneumatic lock release
A one-push pneumatic release simultaneously disengages all four locks for a rapid descent that never loses its balance. Stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders are aircraft-quality, tested and overloaded right here in our own California facilities to ensure optimum functionality and soundness of design. Our quality control experts always listen for a smooth hiss that accompanies the release and descent of every healthy lift we manufacture.

Secondary lock system
A cable-slack detection device acts as a secondary lock in case of a mechanical failure on the lift. Mecha
