Our Standard Lift is a great option for you if you're working with limited space or if you're storing a few smaller vehicles.
With 6' of clearance under the runways while on the top locks you have plenty of room to park your sports car or small SUV underneath.
All 4 corners of every Wildfire lift come standard with 3/4" thick safety locks that engage simultaneously as the lift passes each lock notch. Add in the addition of a secondary "cable slack" lock on each corner and you have safety on top of safety encase of a very unlikely cable failure. Lastly, both the main and secondary locks are held tightly in place to the post by the wrap around design of our cross beams which eliminates the chance of the locks "missing" or becoming disengaged. Fun fact: Wildfire Lifts has never produce a single lift without a secondary cable slack lock.
5" x 5" structural steel posts in combination with computer guided laser cut lock notches allow us to offer a superior, more rigid and incredibly strong alternative to most "c-channel" lifts on the market. Combine this with a 5/8" thick by 12" x 12" base plate and you get a structural post that is as supportive as it is rigid. When working in conjunction with our 2" x 4" crossbeam that wraps all the way around the post to offer not only front to back but also side to side stability you get a lift that comfortably allows you to raise and lower your vehicle each and every time safety and security.
Each and every cable underneath the runway that is used to safely lift your vehicle is held in place to ensure it can not become is dislodged from the ball bearing pulley while in operation or not. These "cable keepers" keep a tight enough tolerance to allow the cables to operate as intended but not allow for them to every slip off of the pulley.
The Wildfire family of lifts was designed with the purpose of longevity in mind. In order to keep up with this idea every single pulley used on our lifts is an accessible ball bearing style. This allows for easy and minimal maintenance to keep your lift in its best operation state for years and years to come.
Directly coming out of the hydraulic cylinder is a brass fitting with an associated flow restricting orifice in place to limit the overall downward speed of the lift. This flow restrictor is in place as an additional level of security encase of an accident that damaged a hydraulic hose. Unlike many competitors who place their flow restrictors in the motor unit we place it directly on the hydraulic ram so that no fluid travels through a hydraulic hose before flowing through the restrictor.
While under load the hydraulic ram twists slightly which could limit operation as well as damaged the underside of a lift. However, all Wildfire lifts come with a bracket that has wheels mounted to it to allow the ram to easily and smoothly operate in and out without contacting or causing damage to itself on the bottom of the runway.
1 Rolling jack tray with associated tension locks to keep the tray better positioned while in use. Unlike many jack trays on the market you have likely seen, our jack tray rolls vs sliding which can bind up or worse cause damage to the runway surface itself.
3 Drip Trays - 24" x 37". While some of you have cars that don't drip, many others do so we include these to help keep the vehicle or items below clean and dry.
By strategic design both the Wildfire WF9000 & WF9000XLT lifts utilize steel approach ramps vs aluminum. While many competitors sell aluminum with the selling feature that it is lighter, which it is slightly, the trouble comes with use. As aluminum is not nearly as strong it tends to fatigue and crack after short use in some cases. If you can tig weld this is less of an issue as it will give you practice. For those of you who cannot tig weld, and don't want to worry about it, that is why we offer what we feel is the best option with our steel approach ramps.
