Design makes them suited for removing and installing high-voltage battery packs or internal combustion powertrain components
Dallas—BendPak has improved, expanded and branded its EV battery scissor lift table lineup to make servicing both electric and internal combustion vehicles more efficient. The new Mobi-EVS EV battery and powertrain lifting system family includes an upgraded model EV2400SL and new, higher-capacity model EV4000SL. It debuts this week in booth 3989 at NADA Expo 2023 in Dallas.
Mobi-EVS full-rise, battery-powered, mobile scissor lift tables have a patent-pending design that makes them suited for removing and installing high-voltage battery packs or internal combustion powertrain components. The 40-inch by 60-inch lift platform rises more than 6 feet in less than 20 seconds. Multiple recessed anchoring locations accommodate a variety of modular fixtures, adapters and accessories for maximum versatility.
The new Mobi-EVS model EV4000SL delivers best-in-class rated load capacity of 4,000 lbs. — enough to safely support the high-voltage battery packs of most EVs on the road, as well as traditional powertrain components. The EV2400SL retains its 2,400-lb. capacity.
Both models now feature an integrated slip-plate deck that enables effortless side-to-side shifting up to 1.5 inches along both axis for adjustability and precise parts alignment. Small enhancements that can make big impacts in technician productivity include more ergonomic deck handles and larger tool trays that run the length of the platform on both sides, keeping fasteners and tools within easy reach.
“As OEMs roll out more EVs, we’ve adapted our EV battery and powertrain lifting system to stay at the forefront of the technology needed to service these cutting-edge vehicles,” said Jeff Kritzer, BendPak president and CEO. “Mobi-EVS lift tables can handle high-voltage battery packs from a Tesla Model 3 to a Ford F-150 Lighting all the way up to a GMC Hummer EV1. They protect technicians by eliminating manual lifting, lowering, and positioning of heavy battery packs and making it easy to ergonomically move them around the shop.”
BendPak made several design enhancements to Mobi-EVS lifts to maximize utility and durability. The zero-throw tri-casters have been upgraded and the steering handle has been reinforced for longer life along with effortless steering control. The handle can be removed and stowed when not in use to provide more walkaround clearance. A new two-piece cover improves access to the lift motor for easier maintenance.
A quarter inch-thick steel-reinforced deck plate minimizes deflection, maximizes load stability and helps extend the life of the lifts. Impact-resistant Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene protects the tabletop from wear and tear while providing a low-friction surface to facilitate smooth shifting of components with less effort. Structural steel channels in both upper and lower frame sections provide additional rigidity and resistance to twisting or bending under load. Structural cross-members at every pivot joint in the scissors assemblies minimize leg deflection. The durable, baked-on powder coat finish enable Mobi-EVS scissor lifts to withstand even the harshest conditions.
Mobi-EVS models meet or exceed the standards prescribed by ASME PASE 2019 (Safety Standard for Portable Automotive Service Equipment).
