IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
SYMMETRIC- & ASYMMETRIC
TWO POST LIFTS?
single piece columns
frequently get the question from customers, ďWhatís
the difference between a symmetric and asymmetric
two post lift
Ē? As a matter of fact, itís probably the most
frequent question we get.
There are several
differences. Many years ago, when they first came
out with two post lifts, they only made symmetric
models. But they soon discovered that technicians
were having difficulty getting in and out of the
vehicle after they had driven in between the
columns. Some bright person then came up with the
idea of placing the vehicle further back, keeping
about 70 percent of the car behind the columns
instead of being centered. This allows the user to
open the doors more completely, and exit the vehicle
without having to squeeze out of a 6 inch opening.
Technicians across the world rejoiced at this new
asymmetric car lift design, especially the larger
fellows, because it made life easier.
There still are
plenty of holdouts for the symmetric design. Most
modern automobiles have a majority of their weight
of front, so they actually balance better when
positioned on an asymmetric lift. But some autos may
balance better on a symmetric lift. Any cars with
engines in the rear, or vans with tools or equipment
in the back, or extra long crew cab trucks for
instance. Some manufacturers produce asymmetric
lifts that have the ability to position the auto
either way if necessary. This was a great upgrade
that makes lifts safer as they can be balanced out
no matter where the carís center of gravity is
As long as there is
a need, some innovative engineer will come out with
BendPak's Tru-Metric Design...
