3500kgs two post lift. The Consul 2.35 Premium - Asymmetric baseless

"The System makes the difference"

Consul Lifts have been manufactured in Germany since 1953.

They are of the highest quality and manufactured with exceptionally stiff rolled steel posts. This strong design offers a very small footprint to the post allowing wider spacing of the posts themselves hence making more room for opening the car doors.        

All the lifts are all fitted with low-profile arms so there is no need for special adaptions for sports cars or cars with low sills etc. The unique design of the roller guided lift carriages means there are no guides to wear and the unique arm supports are exceptionally solid. Safety devices include automatic arm locks, a mechanical locking device in the event of load nut failure, acoustic foot protection and a chain break mechanism where appropriate.

Note : No Baseframe : This lift has no supporting baseframe so no steelwork on the floor between the posts.

Consul Premium Range

The Premium range is ideal for main dealers and prestige workshops offering a combination of flexibility, ease of use and ruggedness. The lifts have bronze load nuts with automatic oilers giving exceptional longevity, load nuts typically last over 15 years. The lifts have push button controls, programmable limits and microprocessor controlled levelling system. Many of the Premium range of lifts have 3-piece lift arms allowing for a wide range of vehicles to be lifted.

Note : The larger Consul model (56060.9) 2.40 can lift a Smart Fortwo and a long wheelbase Sprinter.

Product description : Model 54050.0

This multi-purpose two post lift is your everyday professional two post lift with the added bonus off being baseframe free. Loved by main dealers and garages around the UK because of the empty floor-space between the posts and its diversity being suitable for lifting of small vehicles (e.g. Smart Fortwo BR453) and medium transporters with long wheel base (e.g VW T6). Moving around of toolboxes, transmission jacks and oil drainers etc; is a simple task. The sychronisation system for the two drive motors can be by overhead bridge, or if preferred recessed into the concrete floor. Asymmetrical (short front arms, long rear arms) drive-on, reverse off.

Lifting capacity of 3500kgs. 

Note : On this lift, the Cable Bridge for synchronisation 

can be installed above or below the concrete floor***
