Forward Lift release a new DP15 two-post lift for servicing cars, small trucks, vans and small busses
Forward Lift has released a new DP15 two-post lift for servicing cars, trucks, vans and small buses weighing up to 15,000 lbs. The low-profile two-stage arms have lightweight adapters which provide flexibility for lifting a wide range of vehicles. On the base plate foundation, there are high-strength heavy-gauge steel symmetrical columns which provide stability and support for years of reliable performance.
“The new DP15 is a well-constructed and versatile 15,000 lb. capacity two-post lift that improves shop profitability by expanding the range of vehicles that can be serviced,” says John Uhl, director, light-duty product management for Forward Lift parent company Vehicle Service Group. “The DP15 has the capacity and durability to pick up work trucks, vans and even small buses, for many years to come.”
The Forward Lift DP15 two-post lift comes standard with eight aircraft-grade aluminum truck adapter extensions. These extensions can reach the recommended pick-up points on a wide range of vehicles. They are easy to position because they don’t have the heavy weight like the other heavy-duty adapters. When not in use, they are stored on the inside column bracket.
“The DP15 features Forward Lift’s unique Direct-Pull Lift Technology, which replaces common push cylinders in the lift columns with direct-pull cylinders,” according to the company.
“This design protects the cylinder rod inside the carriage when lowered, and inside the cylinder housing when raised. This high efficiency, low maintenance technology provides the best mechanical advantage against side loading, one of the most common causes for cylinder leaks.”

This provides great mechanical advantage against side loading, which is one of the most common causes for cylinder leaks.
Additional features on the Forward Lift DP15 include a single-point lock for easy lowering and a closed loop hydraulic system to protect against hydraulic contamination.
The lift is available for purchase at one of three heights to meet the needs of any shop across the country.
