What should I consider when purchasing a vehicle lift?

When investing in a vehicle lift, it's important to factor in the specific needs of your garage. This includes understanding the types of vehicles you frequently service, the volume of operations, and the space available in your workshop. The lift's lifting capacity, operation speed, ease of use, and safety features are also crucial considerations.

What are the concrete requirements for an auto lift?

The concrete foundation for your lift should be reinforced and in good condition, with a minimum thickness of 200mm, although this may vary depending on the lift model and the weight of the vehicles you intend to lift. It's also crucial that the garage floor concrete is of the required strength (at least 3000 PSI), not deteriorated, and without cracks.

The concrete foundation's quality significantly impacts the lift's safety and performance. Poor quality concrete can lead to unstable lifts, which can be unsafe and reduce the lift's lifespan. Always refer to the lift manufacturer's specifications, or consult with a professional to ensure the proper installation and safety of your lift.

What is symmetric vs asymmetric lifting?

Symmetric and asymmetric refer to the position of the vehicle on the lift. In symmetric lifting, the vehicle is positioned centrally between the two posts, and the load is distributed equally. Symmetric lifting is often preferred for longer vehicles or those with a balanced weight distribution. Asymmetric lifting, on the other hand, involves positioning the vehicle off-center, allowing the doors to be fully opened while the car is on the lift, providing easier access to the interior.

How do I maintain my Hofmann automotive lift?

Routine maintenance of your Hofmann lift involves regular inspections and lubrication of moving parts. Check hydraulic systems for leaks, and keep an eye on wear and tear of cables and other critical components. Always follow the maintenance schedule provided in the Hofmann lift manual, and remember, if in doubt, it's best to consult with a professional or the Hofmann customer service team.

How does Hofmann ensure the safety of its lifts?

Hofmann prioritises safety in their design philosophy. Each Hofmann lift is equipped with essential safety features, including overload protection, mechanical safety locks, and emergency stop functions. Additionally, every Hofmann lift distributed in Europe undergoes thorough scrutiny conducted by an impartial third party, ensuring compliance with the rigorous European standard EN 1493. Subsequently, a certificate is issued upon the lift's successful completion of the examination, accompanied by a CE conformity declaration founded on the third-party certification.

Can a Hofmann lift accommodate larger vehicles?

Absolutely! Hofmann offers a range of lifts designed to handle vehicles of various sizes, including larger vehicles like vans and trucks. It's essential, however, to check the specific lifting capacity of each model to ensure it suits the vehicles you'll be servicing. With the wide selection of lifts available from Hofmann, you’re sure to find one that fits your needs perfectly.
