Forward Lift’s ML11 Scissor Lift has a 11,000-lb capacity and is available with two runway lengths to meet varying user needs. The lift’s scissor-style lifting mechanism is located entirely under the runways, giving the ML11 lift an overall width that is between 2' and 3' narrower than comparable four-post models, making it ideal for smaller bays. According to the company, the scissor mechanism is equipped with composite bearings that do not require routine maintenance. Synchronized hydraulic cylinders under each runway are controlled from a separate, easy-to-use panel. When the lift is in its lowered position, ramps at the rear allow vehicles to be smoothly driven onto the runways. As the lift is raised, the ramps automatically pivot to form chocks that keep the vehicle in place.
