BendPak’s latest incarnation of XPR Two-Post Automotive Lifts offers a wide selection of durable, safe and reliable systems for virtually every lifting application. Specifically, the heavy-duty XPR-9FD Floor Plate Auto Lift is a swift lifter with a rich feature set designed to enhance productivity and efficiency, while reducing the need for maintenance and service. With lower operating costs and enhanced productivity, the BendPak XPR-9FD is the perfect two-post lifting solution for your shop or garage. Get ready to do more.
The XPR-9FD is precision, open-top style car lift with a maximum weight capacity of 9,000 lbs. Not only is it capable of raising some of your largest full-sized vans, trucks and commercial vehicles, but also gentle enough to provide service support for compact sports cars of all makes and models. And for added ease-of-use, our dual-synchro equalization system and user-friendly controls are simple to understand and operate.
The “D” in XPR-9FD stands for the dual “direct-drive” low-pressure cylinders that minimize leakage and reduce the strain resulting from heavy workloads that would otherwise be placed on the entire hydraulic system. This exclusive BendPak design feature saves you maintenance costs throughout the life of your lift—you aren’t going to find user-focused convenience like this anywhere else. Some other BendPak XPR Two-Post Lift Series innovations include: 16 individual maintenance-free UHMW load bearings, single-piece columns, extra-tall lifting carriages and oversize 5” cable sheaves. And, to better cater to your specific automotive lifting needs, we offer similar model lifts with optional specialty arm configurations.
The entire series of XPR Two-Post Lifts is a perfect example of BendPak’s continuing commitment to producing automotive lifts of only the highest quality and utmost reliability. Featuring the most advanced engineered technology available in the industry, our car lifts are built to safety standards well above OSHA/ALI/ETL requirements.

Every XPR-9FD comes with:
Low-profile, dropped-end frame contact pads
Squeeze under even the lowest compact and sport vehicles.
Included truck and van adapters
Others might charge extra for these necessary adapters, but they’re standard with every XPR-Series Car Lift. Ideal for trucks and vans that employ running boards or auxiliary fuel tanks.
Lowered arm tube supports
To minimize the chance of damaging vehicles with low-hanging vehicle doors, we completely redesigned our two-post arm tube supports to allow for better clearance.
Automatic arm restraints
Each lifting arm is equipped with durable lift arm restraints that automatically engage each time the lift is raised. When the two-post auto lift is lowered, the gear arm restraints automatically disengage to provide easy positioning of the lift arms.
Taller lift carriages
Take a close look at our lift carriages (the lifting assembly that the arms are attached to). Now take a look at the competition. You’ll notice our 53” carriages are considerably taller than most, which minimizes the stress placed on the load bearings and columns.
Maintenance-free load bearings
Rather than using roller bearings that need to be constantly lubricated, every XPR-Series lift carriage uses high-tech UHMW (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) load bearings that never need lubrication and are designed to last the entire life of the lift.
We specifically manufacture the columns using single-piece construction for added strength and less fatigue under heavy load conditions.
Wide or narrow selection
Wide or narrow designs are available, allowing you to maximize your floor space. The XPR-9FD is the narrow version of our direct-drive XPR-Series lift line. Check out the super-wide XPR-9FDX and the 12,000-lbs. capacity XPR-12FD if you need to lift something bigger.
Dual direct-drive technology
By utilizing two, low-pressure HVLP direct-drive cylinders, we’ve eliminated the need for lifting chains or screw mechanisms most commonly found on other lift designs. HVLP direct-drive technology offers better reliability, smoother operation and less maintenance. High-volume, low-pressure equates to less workload placed on the entire hydraulic system.
Single-point safety release
The single point safety release and “dead man” style operation controls make every one of our XPR-Series Car & Truck Lifts easy to operate and safe to use.
On the level
Our dual-synchro equalization system maintains equal lifting and provides operators with a stable, level vehicle working condition.
Industrial-grade hydraulic cylinders
Integrated into every XPR-Series hydraulic cylinder is a one-piece, pilot fitted, machined steel piston that is wrapped with specially designed, pressure loaded U-cup piston seals, backups and wear bands that virtually eliminate any fluid bypass. The micro-smooth chrome rod is machined from high-yield, ground and polished C-1045/50 micro-alloy steel and plated to a minimum of .001” diametrically, ensuring superior cylinder operation and life. The superior high durometer, mechanically-loaded rod seals make rod leakage is a thing of the past while a specially formulated abrasion-resistant urethane rod wiper provides exclusion protection. The welded cylinder body is made from robust steel tubing produced to exceed ASTM specifications. This combination of superb base material and superior processing ensures that the cylinders remain straight, smooth and last a very long time.
Free-flow, high-pressure 3/8” hydraulic lines, a high-flow pump and integrated AC power-unit increase ascent and descent speed rates for enhanced productivity.
Durable powder-coat finish
All XPR-Series Car Lifts feature a durable powder-coat finish that gives the metal a high-quality, extremely durable finish which can withstand even the harshest environmental or chemical conditions. Unlike other companies that claim to powder coat, we take pride in our meticulous 10-step process. First, all parts are visually inspected before being sandblasted. Afterwards, the parts are washed in our 5-stage phosphate tanks that can accommodate parts up to 25’ long. Once cleaned, they’re immediately dried to avoid rust production, and then outgassed. Outgassing pre-bakes the parts in a curing oven, reducing the possibility of blemishes that may be hiding in the pores of the metal. If not properly outgassed, imperfections in the metal may bubble during the curing process and most likely will cause chips in the powder. After the parts are washed and outgassed, any surfaces and / or threaded holes that need to be masked or plugged, are done so with high-temperature masking tape and silicone plugs. Next, the parts are given a quick thinner wipe to remove any light debris or fingerprints, before being hung on an electrostatically grounded conveyor line. The powder is finally applied using an electrostatic spray gun. The powder “sticks” to the surface in a fashion similar to how dust sticks to a television screen. Once the parts are powder coated, the carts are rolled into our curing oven and baked at 400° F for 45 minutes.
Included with every BendPak car and truck lift are detailed installation and maintenance instructions, graphic safety decals, maintenance decals, vehicle lifting point guide and a safety instruction placard to train personnel on proper safety procedures and maintenance guidelines.
