Lightweight Aluminum Ramps are Preferred Among Professionals
Aluminum Approach Ramps are a great, lightweight accessory for lifting low-profile cars on a four post lift . These extended Aluminum Ramps give your super-low-profile car the room it needs to glide smoothly onto the lift without risk of damage, and their super lightweight construction makes them easy to move around.
Made of aluminum, these 16-lb. ramps are significantly lighter than the four post lift steel ramps version, allowing you to maneuver them into place with ease. With 48” of length, Aluminum Ramps are significantly longer than standard four-post lift approach ramps, and feature an attractive diamond plate finish that provides a non-slip surface. With an 18” width and heavy-duty construction, the Aluminum Ramps can support some of the biggest wheels and vehicles in the business.
Designed for the BendPak HD-7 and HD-9 series, this complete kit features two low-profile Aluminum Ramps, quick-mount brackets and all the necessary hardware to make ramp removal and installation a cinch. Aluminum Ramps give you the length and lightweight flexibility you need to get your car safely onto your lift.

“I received my set of BendPak aluminum approach ramps this week, and for me they are a significant improvement over the steel ramps. I had two issues I was looking to resolve: lighter weight, as I want to keep the ramps off the four post lift whenever possible, and longer approach for low cars.
The aluminum ramps are much lighter (16 lbs. each vs. 42 lbs. each) which makes moving them around a non-issue. They attach to the lift via a supplemental bracket, which creates a vertical slot and eliminates the axle pin – much easier to remove and install. They still fit within the runways for storage.
My other issue is my low car was coming within a fraction of an inch of rubbing the bumper lip on the cross bar, so I wanted some longer ramps. The aluminum ramps are the same overall length as the steel ones but the ramp surface is 6" longer, so they don't overlap the lift runways. This made all the difference for me and I've now got almost 2" of clearance to the bumper.”
Thanks to “snowphun” on the Garage Journal forum for the kind remarks. We could not ask for a more glowing endorsement of our four-post car lift ramps.
