BendPak says it has improved, expanded, and branded its EV battery scissor lift table lineup to make servicing both electric and internal combustion vehicles more efficient. The new Mobi-EVS EV battery and powertrain lifting system family includes an upgraded model EV2400SL and new, higher-capacity model EV4000SL.
Mobi-EVS full-rise, battery-powered, mobile scissor lift tables have a patent-pending design that makes them suited for removing and installing high-voltage battery packs or internal combustion powertrain components, the company says. With a press of the button on the pendant controller, the 40-inch by 60-inch lift platform rises more than 6 feet in less than 20 seconds. Multiple recessed anchoring locations accommodate a variety of modular fixtures, adapters, and accessories.
The new Mobi-EVS model EV4000SL delivers best-in-class rated load capacity of 4,000 lbs. – enough to safely support the high-voltage battery packs of most EVs on the road, as well as traditional powertrain components. The EV2400SL retains its 2,400-lbs. capacity.
Both models now feature an integrated slip-plate deck that enables effortless side-to-side shifting up to 1.5 inches along both axis for adjustability and precise parts alignment. Other features include more ergonomic deck handles and larger tool trays that run the length of the platform on both sides.
BendPak says it made several design enhancements to Mobi-EVS lifts to maximize utility and durability. The zero-throw tri-casters have been upgraded and the steering handle has been reinforced for longer life along with effortless steering control, the company says. The handle can be removed and stowed when not in use to provide more walkaround clearance. A new two-piece cover improves access to the lift motor.
A quarter-inch-thick steel-reinforced deck plate minimizes deflection, maximizes load stability and helps extend the life of the lifts. Impact-resistant Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene protects the tabletop from wear and tear, while providing a low-friction surface to facilitate smooth shifting of components with less effort, the company says. Structural steel channels in both upper and lower frame sections provide additional rigidity and resistance to twisting or bending under load. Structural cross-members at every pivot joint in the scissors assemblies minimize leg deflection.
