BendPak HD-9 Car Lifts: Most Popular for a Reason

Posted by

Four-post automotive lifts are legendary for their incredible best-in-class versatility. Need to take a look underneath your truck or van? No problem—drive it on and hit the button. Need room for another vehicle? Just slide one underneath. Perhaps that’s why four-post lifts like the BendPak HD-9 have been seen in both professional and private garages around the world for years.

But flexibility alone does not account for why BendPak’s heavy-duty HD-9 auto lift is quickly outperforming the competition. True, the HD-9 comes fully loaded with standard features like multi-level locking, stand-alone design, and an electric hydraulic power system, but that’s where the mundane similarities end. Let’s take a closer look at why professionals and DIY enthusiasts around the world love their HD-9 auto lifts from BendPak.

Pure lifting might:

The 9,000 pound lifting capacity on BendPak’s HD-9 service lift seems to be the sweet spot for both hobbyists and automotive pros alike. 9,000 pounds is more than enough for most vehicles found on the road today. So with the exception of super-duty trucks, shop owners can be confident that the HD-9 can handle the majority of business that rolls through the door.

At the same time, avid hobbyists who like to tool around in their home garage will enjoy the benefits of having a stronger-than-necessary lift like the HD-9. Plus, with the price difference between a good 7,000 pound lift and a 9,000 pound lift being virtually negligible, there is little reason not to go all out with an HD-9 car lift for home use. Remember, a little more is always better than a little less.

Space saving design:

BendPak has been in the auto lift business for decades, so they’ve perfected the HD-9’s footprint—not too small and not too large. The HD-9 is designed to only be about the size of your average parking slot at the local grocery store. Let’s face it, in many professional shops space is money. So while the HD-9 auto lift is build rock-solid, it isn’t any bigger than it needs to be.

For the home user in particular, the smaller footprint on the HD-9 car lift is a huge boon. BendPak also thought about the limited height clearance in most home garages. The good news is, if your home garage has at least an 8-foot ceiling, you can probably fit one of these great hoists inside.

Simply built better:

BendPak seems to think of everything when it comes their lifts, often going above and beyond what is necessary for a high-quality equipment. For instance, the HD-9 boasts aircraft-quality lifting cables and oversized dual-hub sheaves that last up to three times as long as the smaller plastic sheaves you find on off-brand lifts. The HD-9 by BendPak also has several more locking positions than average to ensure no matter what you’re working on, it’s going to be at the perfect height.

And while good looks aren’t everything, they certainly don’t hurt. All that hardcore hardware is hidden underneath runways or fully enclosed someplace in the design. And that’s not just on the HD-9. Most BendPak lifts feature this attractive and resilient architecture.


When it comes right down to it, the HD-9 is the hottest four-post (possibly in the world) because, no matter what part you’re looking at, you can tell that someone very smart has thought about it very carefully. From features to design, materials to components, BendPak never fails to think about the person who is actually going to use it. And that will always set their products apart.

And the price on the HD-9 is pretty good too. And did we mention the longer approach ramps for low-profile vehicles? The unique no-slip texture on the runways? The powder-coat finish? The stand-alone design? There’s simply way too much for one article. In fact, why don’t you go check out the product page now to find out what feature will be your favorite? Bendpak HD-9
