Low/Mid Rise Frame Engaging

Frame Engaging Auto Lift

Low and mid-rise frame or body engaging lifts usually engage the vehicle’s frame or its perimeter. The lift operates in either a traditional parallelogram-style (which moves fore or aft as it lifts and lowers) or a scissors-style (which moves in a straight vertical direction). These lifts may be powered by an electric-hydraulic power unit or, in the case of some low-rise service lifts, by compressed air. The primary uses of these lifts are tire, brake and wheel service, as well as collision repair – there is limited access to the underside of a raised vehicle on this lift type.
