Forward Lift, a brand of Vehicle Service Group, is expanding its heavy-duty product offering to include its first battery-operated mobile column lifts. The new FCH family of mobile column lifts offers 18,000 pounds of capacity per column in an affordable, portable package for independent repair facilities.
“The FCH family of lifts was designed with small- to medium-sized shops in mind,” says Lance Jones, Forward Lift sales and brand manager.
“For automotive-focused facilities, the family’s economical price allows you to enter the heavy-duty market with little investment. If you already regularly maintain medium- or heavy-duty trucks, FCH mobile column lifts offer many advantages over the four-post lifts you may be using.”
The fixed forks on FCH lifts fit most truck tires without the need for adjustment, enabling faster set-up. To further reduce setup time, the FCH family’s three lightweight, quick-connect cables are arranged in a horseshoe shape. One end of the lift is always open, making it easy to pull vehicles in and out.
FCH lifts feature an automatic steering system and forklift pockets for effortless moving throughout a shop or across any concrete surface. With a full charge in its two marine batteries, an FCH-series lift can complete 12 to 14 lifting cycles.
