Low-Profile Yet High-Clearance
There’s what we might call a “Goldilocks” problem when it comes to both home car lifts and commercial parking lifts. That’s to say, sometimes a lift is large enough to handle high-stance vehicles, but it’s too bulky to fit in anything but a super-tall garage. On the other hand, there are low-clearance parking lifts made for businesses and residences, but they come with a narrow drive-through, clunky side posts and platform clearance issues. Autostacker has re-engineered typical parking lift designs to make the lift that’s “just right” for you—no matter who you are.
Fully collapsible service lifts are common: the pit lifts you see in oil service centers and the mid-rise scissor lifts found in auto shops worldwide do not use side posts. Like Autostacker, these lifts use powerful hydraulic cylinders that push directly against the vehicle platform; the cylinders collapse into the structure and make for a smaller overall footprint. Unlike Autostacker, however, these car lifts are meant as service lifts. Autostacker is the first dedicated parking lift to feature this sort of collapsible design.
By eliminating cumbersome side posts and load-bearing outrigger tubes typically found on other parking lift designs, we ensure Autostacker is truly low-profile and low-stress. When navigating through a plague of posts, (imagine with a bag of groceries), it’s easy to trip and fall, or even worse, and that’s after your amazing vehicle-exit contortion act. With the post-lacking design of the Autostacker, we promise you’ll come to appreciate how much easier it is to exit your car and get around. You’ll also enjoy having less exposed stuff to maintain, clean, care for, etc. The collapsed structure gently slopes to just over a foot off the ground, so it never threatens to disrupt the look of your garage or shop.
The approach ramp is perfect for low-profile vehicles, such as sports cars, race kit builds and vehicles with dropped suspensions, to name a few types. Most parking lift platforms can only achieve this with extra-long approach ramps, and these add-on ramps take up a lot of your precious space. Autostacker’s approach ramp is kept short. To keep it from getting steep, we integrate a gentle incline into the drive-on platform. The incline ends in a small wheel trough that’s just deep enough to catch your wheels and keep them safe without scratching or denting your vehicle.
