Some Automotive Lifts Are Alignment Lift Combos

There are different types of automotive lifts available on the market to use in your service center or repair shop. Learning the differences between models is essential in order to select the right ones. For example, if you intend to use the lift to perform basic services, such as oil changes, replacing brake pads, or installing new tires and wheels, then most basic 2 or 4 post models are sufficient. On the other hand, if you also want to offer alignment services, you will need to choose a combination alignment lift.

Combination automotive alignment lifts are specifically designed to include additional components and parts to complete front end alignments. Having a combination lift gives you the ability to perform a wider range of repair services, because the lift is not limited to only completing alignments.  Most Atlas models include metal cover plates which can be used to cover up the front turntables and slip plates any time you are not using the lift for alignments.

Regardless of the types of automotive lifts you select for your repair shop or service center, you do need to review the specifications and electrical requirements. The specifications contain such details as minimum and maximum heights and widths, included hardware, and maximum vehicle weight limits. The electrical requirements let you know the kind of electrical connection needed to operate the lift. Some models only require 110 volt connections, while others need 220 volt connections. If you ever have any questions about the specifications or requirements on a lift model, contact your supplier directly, before placing your order.
