GrandPrix Logo

New Clearfloor Lift–Only 9’ Tall

A one-of-a-kind lift is about to hit the market. The GrandPrix GP-7 series comes in three varieties and fits in garages with ceilings as low as 9 feet high.

Who should get the GP-7LCS?

The GrandPrix was invented to give you more versatility to work from home. Its extremely low-profile columns don't sacrifice lifting capacity: the GP-7LCS offers the full 7,000-lb. lift of the other GrandPrix models and boasts a full 58" rise.

It's hard to overstate how different the GP-7LCS is from any other garage lift. Two-post lifts have long been standard equipment for professional service bays, but many DIY'ers have been waiting for the day a model would come along that fits in an average-size garage. To this end, compromises have come in the form of "portable" two-post models. But in all likelihood, these lifts lack the GrandPrix's backup safety features, the sheer ruggedness of its construction and its full lifting height. Not to mention, the GrandPrix comes with the same great industry-best warranty as other BendPak two-posts. It's also backed by a full service team to support your every need, before and after your purchase.

The incredible, game-changing upside of the GP-7LCS is that it stands at just 8' 10". Even if it doesn't offer as much rise as high as other two-posts, its impressive 58" is still more than what you get with low-profile, mid-rise scissor lifts. So, if you're between a scissor lift and a GrandPrix, both of which are ideal for garages with tight space and/or low ceilings, the GP-7LCS ultimately offers more lifting height.

For more lifting height, we recommend the 68" rise GP-7LC, which fits in garages with ceilings as low as 10'. Also, the standard-height GP-7 offers a whopping 78" rise and requires 13' ceilings.

More lift, less steel

Super-slim side columns define the look of the GrandPrix. Its stunning and simple design features an overhead crossbar with a built-in auto-shutoff bar, eliminating any risk of vehicles slamming into the overhead steel beam. All this is built into an extremely compact lift. Despite the slimmer proportions, you still get ample drive-thru and clearfloor design for a look at that's as clean as it is practical.

Four lifting cables

Quad lifting cables ensure your GP-7LCS is as reliable as any two-post lift ever made. Just because it's a short design doesn't mean the GrandPrix comes up "short" on safety. In fact, it features twice as many steel lifting cables as other two-post lift and four-post lift models. This ensures that in virtually every single circumstance, as long as the lift is properly operated and maintained, failure in the form of uneven lifting or sudden drops is entirely eliminated. The backup cables are redundant; they're simply there to guarantee peace-of-mind at all times.

Single overhead cylinder

Most hydraulic two-post lifts use dual hydraulic cylinders in the side columns. That's because most hydraulic cylinders found in car lifts are longer than the length of the lift's overhead crossbeam. They simply won't fit anywhere but the side columns, so the columns have to be made thick enough to house the cylinders. To solve this problem, GrandPrix pairs the lifting power of a single, shortened overhead cylinder with four aircraft-quality lifting cables. Our crucial placement of the cylinder frees up a lot of space along the sides, allowing the GP-7LCS to use a lot less steel. The result is a slimmer, safer, 100% industrial-grade lift that homeowners and professionals alike can be proud to put in their garages.

Bi-metric™ arms

Dual-capability Bi-metric arms can be adjusted for symmetric or asymmetric vehicle loading at any time. Some operators prefer to center their vehicles, while others prefer the asymmetric style that permits more door clearance. Oftentimes, user preference comes second to the actual space available and layout of the garage. That's why GrandPrix lets you switch between both. No additional purchase necessary.

 

 

 

BendPak GrandPrix GP-7 Space-Saving Two-Post Lift

The Only Space-Saving, Two-Post Lift Designed for Narrow Bays and Low Ceilings

The GrandPrix™ is a 7,000-lb. capacity two-post car lift unlike any other. Boasting narrow profile columns that don’t consume valuable floor space, as well as a single hydraulic cylinder that offers an incredible 2:1 lift, the GrandPrix provides more power and speed than any ALI-Certified two-post lift in its class. Remarkably, the patent-pending design is the only clear floor two-post lift available that fits in compact garages with ceilings as low as nine feet. The Grand Prix’s space-saving design means you don’t need to renovate your garage to make room. It’s a clear floor two-post lift that’s ready-made to fit in virtually any garage. Choose from three models to best suit your needs:

The GrandPrix redefines possibility from a two-post lift design—without breaking the bank. Specifically engineered with the home user and space-constrained shop mechanic in mind, the GrandPrix is equipped with Bi-metric™ arms suited for both symmetric and asymmetric handling of vehicles. That means if you want more door-opening clearance with cars positioned farther to the rear, the Bi-metric arms can accommodate your needs. Or, if you’re more of a “center-is-better” type, the purposefully designed dual-positioning arm configuration can handle that too.

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.

Unfortunately, the car lift world is full of cheap, knock-off lifts with little or no engineering documentation to back up the many vague safety claims that are out there. That’s why the Grand Prix offers full ALI Certification: so you get total peace of mind. In addition to being safer than other lifts, the GP-7 series is in a class of its own. Also unlike the others, we actually have complete documentation to back up our claims. Choose from three models to best suit your needs:

Features & Specs

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.

Simple operation 
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.

Redundant redundancy
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”. 

Below identifies the redundancy built into every GrandPrix lift. (As if a safety factor on the lifting cables exceeding 800% is not respectable enough)

  • Every GrandPrix lift is equipped with rugged load-holding safety lock devices that prevent sudden free fall in the unlikely event of a suspension component failure. 
  • By nature, wire rope is a redundant system in itself—a redundant structure made from a number of parallel load-bearing elements that are twisted together to allow the  assembly to operate as a cohesive whole. 
  • When it comes to built-in safety factors, we’ve got gobs of them. From the overstated cables to the entire lift structure—and that’s when loaded to max capacity. Lift less than 7,000 lbs. and the abundant safety factors start stacking up even more, adding a whole new level of assurance. 
  • We include secondary backup cables. 
  • We feature spring-loaded cable break safeties that act as slack-cable locks in case of backup cable failure

The gold label of safety
There’s only one nationally recognized safety standard for vehicle lifts: ANSI/ALI ALCTV (current edition) “Safety Requirements for the Construction, Testing and Validation of Automotive Lifts”, administered by the Automotive Lift Institute. ALI certification is a buyer’s-only guarantee that the lift meets industry safety and performance standards. 
*Only the GP-7 model is currently certified. ALI certification is currently pending on GP-7LCS and GP-7LC models.
