The longer, higher triple decker
The tri-level HD-973PX is a four-post parking hoist that maximizes your parking capacity without adding any additional real estate. Each HD-973PX houses up to three vehicles on strengthened parking platforms to give you the most space for your buck. With an additional 2,133 mm of overall height compared to the HD-973P parking hoist, the HD-973PX supports some of the biggest vehicles around! This extra height, along with the additional 254 mm of runway length, gives you the perfect amount of space to fit longer and taller vehicles, while maintaining a height that will fit comfortably in most shops and garages. With the topmost platform’s weight capacity sitting at a hefty 3,175-kgs. and the lower deck handling up to 4,082-kgs., the HD-973PX is ideal for hoisting even heavy-duty vehicles like full-size trucks and SUVs.
This rugged design is ready for installation indoors or outdoors, instantly tripling your parking and storing capability. The easy to use top-of-the-line design ensures that your vehicles are being hoisted safely, and efficiently. Which saves you time, and worry. The safety features that come standard with any BendPak hoist make sure your cars stay in the air until YOU move them, and intuitive design cycles through the cars at the push of a button. With the HD-973PX you’re getting a hoist that can not only park your taller and longer vehicles, but fits comfortably and safely wherever you need it most.
Shortened height columns allow this car hoist to fit in low ceiling spaces where others systems can’t. Although shorter in stature than most tri-level systems, the lower space still yields a full 1,778 mm of rise.
Typical multi-level car stackers include a bottom platform that is suspended from the upper platform via chains or cables—both platforms move simultaneously. This tethered operation results in limited spacing options between platforms, as the distance between platforms is fixed.
The HD-973PX features independently operated hoisting platforms, permitting varied vehicle heights and spacing in either upper or lower parking spaces. Because the platforms do not have to move in unison with one another, you can now lower the bottom platform without disrupting the overhead vehicle being stored. This allows operators to control one platform at a time. Practically speaking, if you only want to swap out the second-level vehicle, you don't have to lower the top-level vehicle.
The patent-pending design of the HD-973PX features multi-position safety locks that are spaced just four inches apart. This allows almost unlimited parking height arrangements on either the upper or lower decks. Redundant, anti-fall, spring-loaded safety catches immediately halt downward movement of either platform in the unlikely event of cable failure.
A powerful hydraulic cylinder is enclosed underside each platform set and is matched with high-strength hoisting cables for simplicity and dependability. The hoist can be configured for drive-thru operation, allowing as many as three deep for maximum efficiency and better use of space.
Smarter construction means less cost to you
High-rise parking hoists that can fit three vehicles will inevitably cost more than other hoists. There's simply more steel involved, and larger hoists require additional engineering, all of which gets incorporated in the cost. The HD-973PX offsets much of that extra cost because its smart design requires less steel. The end result is an incredibly efficient parking hoist that actually saves buyers thousands of dollars while upholding the industry's most rigid safety standards.
Specially designed base frames distribute the load, which makes this unique hoisting system suitable for installation on virtually any residential or commercial concrete floor. It can even be installed on asphalt when equipped with concrete footers. The HD-973PX may be configured as a stand-alone hoist or combined into rows of multiple units.
Who should get this parking hoist?
Explore the HD-973PX if you need to stack three vehicles in a tight space, or if you want the versatility to vary the parking heights of your second and third-level vehicles. The hoist's small footprint and exemplary design makes for an ideal hoisting solution in both professional shops and home garages.

1The Lift supports less weight than its rated capacity when the vehicle’s wheelbase is shorter; this is because the wheels of such a vehicle are closer to the middle of the Runways, where there is less strength. For example, the maximum weight allowed on the Lift for a vehicle with a wheelbase of 95" is 50 percent of the Lift’s rated capacity (or 3,500 lbs. when the rated capacity is 7,000 lbs.).

Note: An air supply (minimum: 30 psi / 3 CFM) is may be required for the safety-lock mechanisms to disengage. It is solely the responsibility of the end-user to provide, install and maintain the air supply.
