Full-Rise Two-Post Hoist with an Incredibly Small Footprint
The GP-7LC is an incredibly powerful, 3,175 kg. capacity two-post hoist that reaches a max lifting height of 1,727 mm. Never before has a garage with ceilings as low as 3 metre been able to fit a hoist of this caliber. There are some portable options on the market, but only the GrandPrix offers the superior safety standards of a full-rise hoist in a slim, low-ceiling build. Home wrenchers have long lamented the lack of a lifting option for their garages, so they wind up settling for less premium options or low-rise options, or else they make sacrifices in the capabilities and safety features of their hoist. GrandPrix's GP-7LC truly upends everything you thought you knew about automotive repair. It lets the average Joe or Jane work on a full-rise hoist from the comfort of home. This machine fits in most home garages and comes along with the best warranty in the industry. If you've been looking at car hoists and holding off because of space, this might just be the hoist for you've been looking for.
Space still too tight? Check out the GP-7LCS, our super-short model that offers 1,473 mm of rise and fits in garages with 2.75 metre ceilings.
More lift, less steel
A lower column height doesn't change the slimmed-down nature of the hoist. Looking at the GP-7LC, you might be surprised that a hoist this compact could be over-engineered to easily lift up to 3,175 kg. The shorter model offers the same overall width and drive-thru clearance of the standard-height GP-7. Best of all, because it offers more rise (relative to column height) than any other hoist in its class, the GrandPrix doesn't ask you to compromise on how you work. It simply adapts to your lifestyle.
Four lifting cables
Like the other offerings in the GrandPrix series, the GP-7LC is unlike any other hoist ever built because it features four lifting cables, two of which are redundant and supplied only as an extreme safety precaution. A 2:1 lifting speed is no joke, so we don't take chances with your life or your property. A redundant cable is merely there in case one cable should develop slack, snap or otherwise become dysfunctional. We don't expect one of these cables to ever come into play, to be perfectly honest, because the aircraft-quality lifting cables are extremely durable and easy to maintain. At the end of the day, the GP-7LC is as safe as any car hoist ever built—arguably safer.
Single overhead cylinder
The quadruple lifting cable system is the essential factor that allows the GP-7LC to use half as many hydraulic cylinders (one instead of two) and lift twice as fast as many other hoists. Putting the cylinder overhead lets the GrandPrix get away with less steel for the columns. We could have gotten by with two cables and hydraulic cylinder; together, they would be over-engineered far beyond the hoist's rated lift capacity. But, it's always nice to have a backup cable, and the GrandPrix offers two! With just a single overhead cylinder lifting work, it'll not only last for years with very little maintenance for years to come.
This two-post hoist utilizes a Bi-metric™ telescoping arm design that can be angled for either asymmetric or symmetric lifting, depending on how you load your vehicles. Those who prefer additional door clearance can configure the asymmetric design, and those who prefer to align the arms at the center of the vehicle are free to do so. Garage space and the type of vehicle being lifted can affect which method you prefer, so we offer both! More flexibility means practically every single garage in Australia can now fit a premium car hoist.
