Let's start with the fact that the installation of a four-post car lift does not require a pit and additional construction work. The choice of this type of elevator, first of all, most often depends on the foundation in the room.

Let's list the main attributes of a car lift:

- Hydraulic cylinders ( provide lifting of the platform )

- Hydraulic station ( ensures the performance of the lift )

- Control system (wired control box、remote control )


 Of course, all components should be made only of high-quality materials for reliability of use and a long service life. As for the Mutrade, we manufacture equipment using high quality Chinese-made metal products. Further, when the structure has already been made, it undergoes mechanical processing: metal cleaning, degreasing before painting and painting itself. Thanks to this treatment, the equipment will serve for a long time without corroding. At the last stage, the equipment undergoes dynamic tests: the car lift is loaded with a mass that exceeds the lift capacity by more than 30%. Agree that after such a test, you can definitely be sure of the reliability of the Mutrade Four Post Vertical Hydraulic Car?
