The new QuickJack 6000ELX portable car lift offers a compact solution for lifting electric vehicles
Santa Paula, Calif.—The new QuickJack 6000ELX portable car lift offers a compact solution for lifting electric vehicles (EVs) for maintenance, service and detailing.
Industry experts expect global sales of electric passenger vehicles to surpass 10.5 million this year and project that EVs will make up approximately 30 percent — about 4.7 million — of new passenger vehicles sold in the U.S. by 2030.
The high-voltage battery pushes lifting points out toward the extreme edges of the vehicle frame. Many EVs also have long wheelbases that put their lifting points out of reach of most scissor lifts and other mid-rise lifts. As a result, traditional two-post and four-post lifts are often recommended for servicing these vehicles. But those lifts are large, costly, and permanent.
The 6000ELX is a compact, frame-engaging scissor lift with an open-center design for complete access to the vehicle’s undercarriage. Since many electric vehicles weigh more than their gas counterparts, the 6000ELX has rated lifting capacity of 6,000 lbs. Its long frames provide access to a range of lifting points from 47.5 inches to 76 inches, which is 17 inches longer than the QuickJack TL Series and about 10 inches longer than the TLX.
The QuickJack 6000ELX features pendant controls for one-handed operation, dual-position automatic safety locks and urethane wheels that facilitate rolling the lift where it’s needed. A button raises a vehicle more than 21 inches in the air in approximately 30 seconds. Another press lowers the lift onto its mechanical locks where it can safely hold the vehicle for as long as necessary. Tthe lift collapses to 3.5 inches high and can hang on a wall or slide under a toolbox.
