Forward Lift Unveils New Scissor Lift

July 7, 2014—Lift manufacturer Forward Lift announced Monday its new 11,000 lb. capacity ML11 scissor lift, which offers the same functions as a traditional four-post lift but takes up less space.

The ML11 lift is located under the runways, which allows it to be 2–3 feet narrower than comparable models. In addition, the runways are not connected at the front or back, which makes an open work area that runs the entire length of the lift.

“With four-post lifts, the columns are placed outside of the runways, resulting in a wider overall footprint,” said John Uhl, sales and brand manager for Forward Lift. “The ML11 scissor lift is only as wide as its runways, which means it occupies less space than a four-post lift. With an overall length of only 228.5 inches, the ML11-46 model allows customers to create bays in spaces that competing lifts cannot fit into.”

The ML11, which may be used with compact cars, sedans and light trucks, can be equipped for vehicle alignments or tire, brake and suspension work. LED runway lights are also available to help with visibility under a vehicle.
