Powder-coated lift is third-party tested and certified to meet safety standards

Madison, Ind. (January 17, 2017) – Forward Lift’s new EFP8 four-post lift is designed for the car enthusiast with multiple vehicles and limited garage space. The economical lift is the perfect solution for someone who wants a solid, well-built and easy-to-operate four-post lift in order to park one vehicle directly above another, within the available garage space – and the available budget.

Forward Lift’s new EFP8 four-post lift doubles the available parking space in a garage. The durable 8,000-pound capacity lift is engineered to perform and built to last.

As testimony to its construction, the Forward Lift EFP8 four-post lift has been third-party tested and certified by the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) to meet all industry safety and performance standards. It can be purchased through most national auto parts retailers as well as from Forward Lift authorized distributors across North America.

“Our EFP8 four-post lift is perfect for people who love cars and want to safely store and show off their automotive investments. It’s a robust, reliable 8,000 lb. capacity four-post lift with an attractive powder-coated appearance that matches its attractive price,” says John Uhl, director, light-duty product management for Forward Lift parent company Vehicle Service Group. “While some lift companies subcontract their hobbyist lift production, we build the EFP8 in our own factory, alongside the commercial-grade lifts professional garages rely on every day.”

With a 72-inch lifting height, the Forward Lift EFP8 four-post lift offers 68 inches of clearance under the runways, so most cars can park underneath. It comes with many standard features other lifts lack, like a single-point lock release plus multi-position locks that allow the runways to remain level at any lock position. The 115-volt power unit plugs into a standard North American outlet, without the need for a special electrical drop.

Many accessories are included in the purchase price, such as:
  •     Steel approach ramps for driving onto the runways.
  •     Wheel caster kit to easily move and position the lift.
  •     Jack tray allows wheels-free service by supporting a floor or bottle jack to raise part of the vehicle on the lift. Includes a parts compartment that’s great for holding tools.
  •     Polypropylene drip trays to catch fluids.
