All Consul 2 post lifts feature exceptionally stiff rolled steel posts. These give a very small “footprint” and allow more space for door opening. The lifts all have low profile arms so there is no need for special adaptions for sports cars etc. With one exception, they offer a clear floor and the connections between posts can be routed in a variety of ways. The unique design of the roller guided lift carriages means there are no guides to wear and the unique arm supports are exceptionally solid. Safety devices include automatic arm locks, a mechanical locking device in case of load nut failure, acoustic foot protection and chain break mechanism where appropriate.
The Premium range is ideal for main dealers and prestige workshops offering a combination of flexibility, ease of use and ruggedness.
