With our most popular lift, our Wildfire XLT you have the ability to lift almost any vehicle in your garage or fleet. You can now easily lift your smaller sports cars but also pick up your full size trucks.
With a full 6'10" of clearance under the runways while on the top locks you have plenty of room to park your pick up truck underneath the lift. With the added length (1'8" longer than our Standard Lift) you are able to lift longer wheelbase vehicles as well.
Safety Locks & "Cable Slack" Locks
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. Our locks utilize a single manual handle release that accuates all 4 locks in unison without the need for air. Fun fact: Wildfire Lifts has never produce a single lift without a secondary cable slack lock.
Boxed Structural Steel Posts & Wrap Around Crossbeams
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. With thicker than industry average sidewalls our crossbeams do not need additional reinforcement. Simply put, we engineer our crossbeams and uprights to a higher level than the average lift by using higher grade stock material when producing our lifts.
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.
Fully Sealed Ball Bearing Pulleys
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. Every pulley on our lifts are fully sealed ball bearing pulleys for unmatched longevity - the photos shown are an open bearing to show the style but all bearings are fully sealed on your lift. NOTE: Some competitors will advertise/sell "oilless bearings" please note that these are brass bushings with an attempt to name them something that sounds better than what they are. Also note, some companies will advertise/sell teflon bearings, these are in most cases sleeves that wrap the shaft just like a brass bushing and are in no way a replacement for a fully sealed ball bearing pulley. Be aware - the more you know, the more you can compare.
Flow Restrictor (aka Anti Surge Valve)
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 in case 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. Fun Fact: Wildfire Lifts has never produce a single lift without a flow restrictor (anti surge valve as worded by some competitors).
Hydraulic Ram Wheels
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.
3hp ETL Certified 110V Motor
The Wildfire Lifts WF9000XLT comes equipped with a 3hp 110V Motor, 1Ph, 20 amp. This motor offers more power than most of our competitors on the market. It is a more expensive motor and a higher quality motor which falls right in line with other high quality components we offer on all of our lifts.
In the history of our company, Wildfire Lifts has never produced a lift without a motor that is ETL certified. (3rd party independently tested).
Included Accessories With Each WF9000XLT
Rolling Jack Tray & Drip Trays
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. We provide 6' of drip tray coverage with 3 drip trays, some competitors sell their lifts with 4, 18" drip trays which gives the same overall coverage of 6'.
Steel Approach Ramps
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 (even with gussests in place). 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.
Full set of 4 tires stops. One piece for the end of each runway.
"I purchased the XL and it is fantastic. It has no problem lifting my Ram 3500 Mega Cab Diesel that weighs well over 8000lbs. Brad was incredible from a customer service perspective. Very satisfied."

**If researching our competitors be VERY CAUTIOUS if you read that they have a runway that can move to make a wider landing for your vehicle. While this is not incorrect, it can be very misleading, in order to go wider it will OFFSET your loading to one side and can create big issues with loading vs widening the stance evenly. You cannot move both runways with this type of a lift (only the runway without cables or ram) as it would elongate one set of cables and shorten the other set of cables by moving the ramp with the hydraulic ram and cable assemblies. Please use caution as this is sold as a benefit but in reality it can be a detriment as your already wider vehicle is now offset closer to the post and cable potentially causing contact or very tight fitments which is likely what you're attempting to avoid - please just use caution and analyze for yourself.**
Wildfire Lifts does not guarantee the fitment of any vehicles as this can be "subjective" with some customers. We provide the necassary measurements above to allow you, the customer, to determine the best lift for your needs.
