6,350-kg. Capacity / Open-Front Alignment Hoist / Extended / Includes Turnplates and Slip Plates

The HDSO14AX is an open-front, 6,350-kg. capacity alignment hoist. The “open” design makes it easier to access the front turn plates and undercarriage, and features front turn plates and rear slip plates built right into the runways. Wheels respond to adjustments with no resistance.

Open-Front Design and 6,350-kg. of Might

We engineered the HDSO14AX alignment hoist without a front crossbar, so operators can easily enter and exit from beneath the vehicle. Now the process of front-end adjustment becomes quick and trouble-free. This is a must for busy alignment bays. Additionally, for precise front-hoist leveling, nothing beats our patented, adjustable front outrigger tubes. The infinitely adjustable pitch compensates for excessive loads and sloped floors.

Slip plates

Rear-facing multi-caster slip plates and front-facing turn plates permit precise, free-floating alignment.

Turn plates

This alignment hoist features two recessed turn plate pockets that let you freely position the corrosion-resistant, galvanized turn plates.

Dual-hub cable sheaves

BendPak alignment hoists include strong, durable and oversized ​268 mm diameter cable sheaves within the runway and cross tubes, as well as ​57mm diameter sheave axles. These powerful components keep your car ​hoist running for many years, far past the point other brands’ ​hoists have already given out or required expensive parts replacements.

Heavy-duty aircraft cable

BendPak runs four aircraft-quality steel cables (that measure in at a robust 12.7 mm diameter, 6 x 25), within the columns. They are literally the ultimate standard for high-quality cable construction and safe hoisting.

Adjustable height locking positions

Alignments are often done by different mechanics in a busy shop. The multiple locking heights allow different people to work on the HDSO14AX alignment hoist at the height appropriate for them. Since it’s an open-front design, getting under is easy no matter how tall they are.

Built-in lubrication

Grease fittings are an essential component to every car ​hoist we make. They keep the cable sheaves lubricated, so you don’t have to worry about productivity and safety in our design.

Flow restrictor

Should anything catastrophic occur in your shop to disrupt the functionality of your ​hoist, we want you to feel confident that BendPak keeps your vehicles and equipment safe. If the hydraulics are cut or lose all pressure, which would be extraordinary, the built-in hydraulic flow divider still ensures a safe, even descent at all times.

Spring-loaded safety locks

Our fully adjustable locks are also found on the HDSO14AX alignment hoist. Springs engage as the lock ascends into position. This design also helps keep the platforms even, even if there’s a tiny slope to your garage flooring.

Push-button pneumatic lock release

Air locks make releasing the locks simultaneous, each and every time. The instant release ensures the alignment hoist platforms descend evenly.

Secondary lock system

A backup lock system protects the alignment system in the event that cable slack is detected. When this occurs, the cable is immediately “grabbed,” and the entire operation ceases immediately.

Integrated design

BendPak cables, cable sheaves and airlines run internally throughout the structure. Every one of these parts is susceptible to damage and extra wear if left exposed. We keep the look and feel of this alignment hoist clean while protecting the most critical parts and components.

Electric-hydraulic power system

The power unit never needs to be maintained or adjusted. It’s also so easy and safe to use, we recommend it for both home and commercial applications.

Longer approach ramps

Because our approach ramps are longer, they make it easier to load low ground-clearance vehicles. So easy, in fact, that you’ll never scratch up the bottom of your car or struggle with the gas pedal to give enough gas without shooting onto the ramp at an unsafe speed. Simply glide on and start aligning.

Flexible protective conduit

The durable conduit that surrounds the airlines and hydraulic hoses prevents damage to the cables. It also keeps you safe from electrical shock.

Rolling ​jacking beams

Rolling bridge jacks turn your alignment hoist into an all-purpose four-post ​hoist. No need to transfer to a different car ​hoist to perform wheel and brake service. Now you can change brake rotors right before you align the wheels, all on the same hoist. Rolling ​jacking beams are a safe and space-saving way to increase shop capability without purchasing more equipment.
