Dannmar has introduced its new D4-12A alignment lift, which can be used to perform two- or four-wheel alignments and general service work on cars, SUVs, and light trucks weighing up to 12,000 lbs.
Dannmar is a BendPak, Inc. brand.
“The D4-12A is such a versatile piece of equipment, it’s like getting two lifts in one: an alignment lift and a service lift,” said John Vera, Dannmar product specialist. “It’s convenient for shops that don’t want to dedicate an entire bay to alignments — with a Dannmar D4-12A, the same lift can be used for oil changes, undercar service and even wheel and brake work with the addition of rolling jacks.”
The D4-12A comes with free-floating, heavy-duty turnplates and rear slip plates built right into the runways. They’re designed to allow alignment and clearance to accommodate even low-slung vehicles, according to Dannmar. With the addition of alignment equipment, the lift can be used to perform four-wheel alignments from 106 to 158.5 inches and two-wheel alignments up to 163.5 inches.
The lift features an automatic leveling system with multiple auto-leveling locking positions in each column and a push-button safety release. The non-skid runways adjust for various tread widths. The D4-12A runs on an electric/hydraulic power system with a single hydraulic cylinder mounted under a runway for convenience and protection, according to Dannmar. All heavy-duty aircraft-grade lifting cables, safety locks, and sheaves are fully enclosed.
Users can add a pair of DJ-6000 rolling bridge jacks to lift all four wheels off the runways to release the vehicle’s suspension and free up the wheels and tires, according to Dannmar. The optional Dannmar integrated rolling bridge airline kit mounts and secures the bridge jacks’ airline to the bottom of the lift runways. Another option is the DP-30 rolling oil drain. Designed to slide along the rails integrated in the D4-12A runways, the DP-30 has a 15-gallon capacity, a removable steel mesh cover to catch any debris, and a built-in drain nozzle.
Dannmar said the D4-12A alignment lift has been third-party tested and ALI Certified to meet industry performance and safety standards. It’s backed by a three-year limited warranty and is available with free shipping in the 48 contiguous U.S., according to the company.
