The Atlas® FM9SL 9,000 lb. flush mounted scissor lift is the perfect choice for those service facilities that need to maximize the number of vehicle lifts per service area square foot. If you like the “clean floor look” for your service department (no above ground lifts), then the Atlas® FM9SL flush mounted scissor lift offers the perfect alternative. Unlike “old school in-ground” lifts, the flush mounted lift requires minimal excavation and the electric/hydraulic power unit is easily accessed during periodic maintenance.
The flush mounted platforms offer no “above ground” obstruction and the platforms can be “driven over” from any direction so that a vehicle may be properly positioned in the tightest of spaces. The Atlas® FM9SL has both front and rear platform extensions that can be used when lifting a long wheel base pick-up truck.
As with any scissor lift that is completely open (no cross support bar in the front or rear to keep the platforms level), the operator must make sure that the vehicle’s frame is positioned at least 6 inches from the inside of the platform. If too much weight is positioned near the edges of the platform (closer than 6 inches from the inside edges), the platforms may become “pigeon toed” and damage may occur. We sell the Atlas® scissor lift support bar kit to disperse the narrow frame weight over the entire platform lifting surface
