The Atlas® 412 incorporates many structural and cosmetic features that are found on lifts costing thousands of dollars more money. The Atlas® 412 is tested to ensure that this lift system will perform flawlessly at its rated capacity. The Atlas® 412 has been manufactured to the same exacting specifications for many years.
The Atlas® 412 uses a high strength cable system (with a under runway oversized hydraulic cylinder) powered by a 220 volt (single phase) power unit to raise and lower the lift. Many competitors use an “old style” chain lifting system with an exposed hydraulic cylinder system. Old style chain lifts are difficult to “level” properly and the exposed hydraulic cylinder is responsible for numerous “door dings”.
Finally, the Atlas® 412 features “tracks” between the runways to allow the use of a rolling bridge jack (such as the Atlas® RJ6BK) on the lift. Rolling jacks sold separately.
