Hi people
I was wondering if anyone as had any experience on 4 post mobile veichle lifts I am basically looking for a wiring diagram for the one I have been called to with no look on the net and Im not sure if any diagram would give me a basic Idea of what is happening with the lifts. Are they all wired/controlled in the same way etc I dont want to start stripping down the panel to find every wire as theres a few in there
The one Im talking about as a master lift with 3 slaves and the master obviously as the saftey control wiring inside it and it wont operate with out the slaves giving it the ok emergency stop door closed etc .
Ive had problems with this lift in the past but was able find the problem ok. I am trying to save the customer money and myself time by been able to solve the problem quicker with the diagram any help would be great
Many thanks

We have ours mantained by a specialist company as we classify them as lifting gear.

They also produce certification for insurance purposes.

Are these the ones that are capable of lifting 30+ tons between the four of them and need to rise and fall together?

The workshops that maintain our vehicles have several sets of them capable of lifting HGV's.

With that sort of weight being moved about, I don't think I'd put my PI/PL on the line unless I knew exactly what I was doing with them. I've seen them when one decided to stop for no apparent reason. The results were frightening to say the least.

Synchronised mobile vehicle lifts

That is true statutory inspection every six months

Lifting tables used for vehicle lifting 6 months intervals. Statutory

Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment
Regulations 1998 (LOLER)
Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
1998 (PUWER)

Of course, that is no help to you; robuck post would be the best way to go. All can do is give you a picture of one type, you also get wireless ones. Not much, help sorry.

New here?
