Incorrectly routed load rope on a Four Post Vehicle Lift

This vehicle lift had recently had the load ropes renewed, unfortunately the load rope was incorrectly routed causing it to wear through a hydraulic hose.

Thankfully, we found it before the hydraulic hose failed which would have led to the ramp falling…..onto its safety locks (which were found to be satisfactory), but by all accounts when this happens, it isn’t a pleasant experience.

Our Engineer Surveyor’s advice: “Check any major work that has been carried out on your vehicle lift or you can ask us to take a look to put you mind at rest.”
