BendPak GrandPrix Space Saving Two Post Lift GP-7 7,000 lb Capacity
This patent pending design is the only clearfloor 2 post lift available that will fit in compact garages with ceilings as low as 9 feet. It offers both asymmetric and symmetric arm configurations for great versatility, and telescoping low-pro arms for sports cars. Its lowered arm tube supports help reduce the risk of damage to any of the doors, and is simply operated through ergonomic controls combined with automatic safety locks.
Specifically equipped with telescoping low-profile arms, all three GrandPrix models are ready to tackle low groundclearance vehicles such as race cars and modified imports. Of course, with a robust 7,000-lb. lifting capacity, light-duty trucks and SUVs are no problem at all.

Telescoping Low-Pro™ arms for sports cars
If you work with low ground-clearance vehicles, such as race cars, sports cars and modifieds, you’ll appreciate the ground-hugging profile our Low-Pro arms have to offer. These telescoping arms rest lower to the ground, making it possible to service low-stance vehicles.
Asymmetric & symmetric arm configuration
The GrandPrix is equipped with Bi-metric™ arms suited for both symmetric and asymmetric handling of vehicles. Variable arm positioning for either symmetrical or asymmetrical configuration offers greater versatility for increased service capabilities. It’s like having 2 car lifts in 1.
Lowered arm tube supports
Unobstructed door-opening clearance and door damage prevention are essential aspects in every two-post design. Mitigating risk of door dents and dings starts out by eliminating the risk entirely. That’s why our arm tube supports are lowered and gradually tapered, providing unhindered range of motion when opening vehicle doors.
Automatic arm restraints
The telescoping arms of the GrandPrix series feature arm restraints that interlock automatically when the lift rises off the ground, adding an added measure of safety and assurance that the arms will be held strongly in place during use. When the lift is lowered to the ground, the restraints disengage. This enables free movement of the arms, so they can be moved out of the way for easy vehicle exit.
Our standard electric-hydraulic power unit is built with precision components that assure trouble-free operation and maximum durability. Ergonomic controls combine with automatic safety locks to permit simple and safe operation.
Taller lift carriages
Lift carriages are the lifting assemblies that the car lift arms attach to. At a lofty 53” in height, our GP-7 two-post lift carriage is substantially taller than most other two-post designs, which enables us to reduce column, carriage and load bearing stresses.
Automatic safety locks
Rugged load-holding safety lock devices automatically engage and lock the lift structure as the car lift rises, preventing sudden free-fall in the unlikely event of suspension component failure. A convenient single-point safety lock handle releases both column locks simultaneously. For added safety, a secondary lock system acts as an automatic slack-cable device, automatically engaging in the event of an unexpected cable failure.
Single hidden hydraulic cylinder
A single overhead cylinder means no more problematic synchronization issues that are known to plague multi-cylinder two-post lift designs. Our proprietary hydraulic power system is teamed with oversized dual-hub cable sheaves that together deliver a 2:1 lifting ratio, raising cars and light trucks incredibly fast. The micro-smooth chrome piston rod is machined from high-yield C-1045/50 micro-alloy steel and is paired with an industrial single-piece, pilot-fitted, machined steel piston. High durometer, mechanically-loaded rod seals make leakage a thing of the past, while specially formulated abrasion-resistant urethane rod wipers provide extrusion protection. This combination of superb base materials and superior processing ensures optimum efficiency and longevity. An integrated flow restrictor provides a controlled descent in the case of an unexpected hose rupture.
Each GrandPrix lift is supplied with four high-strength galvanized steel lifting cables, each with a tensile strength of over 15,000 pounds. That’s 60,000 pounds of brawny steel cable to safely support up to 7,000 pounds. Even though only two cables are actually necessary for a GrandPrix lift to operate, we purposely added two additional independent and totally separate cables to ride along as added security in the rare case of a cable failure. That means that if any one of the primary 15,000-pound cables fails, there is a backup cable on-guard, a load sentry that will quickly spring into action.
Now comes the fun part. Let’s say that for whatever reason, a primary cable fails (highly unlikely). The backup cable will instantly take over the heavy lifting role. Now, imagine that for some apocalyptic reason, one of the secondary backup cables fails as well—what then? This is what our engineers are most proud of. Integrated into the design as a kind-of behind the scenes, all-inclusive safety net is an ingenious little device our engineers cleverly called out as “GP-7 CABLE BREAK SAFETY, PART NUMBER 5600694”.
