Designed to lift heavy loads quickly and safely, the Hofmann® 16k Two-Post Lift comes with features that ensure a long service life and safety features to protect the operator and the vehicle. 

The Hofmann 16k Two-Post lift can handle loads of up to 16,000 pounds, an essential component for shops that regularly work on large or heavy-duty vehicles. Heavy-duty steel pulleys work to reduce the load on equalization cables, as the robustly constructed, extra-long 62-inch arms safely lift the vehicle, effectively distributing weight across the columns. A standard set of screw pads and adapters ensures accommodates pick-up points for nearly every type of vehicle on the market. We’ve designed a padded overhead bar that instantly stops the lift, protecting the vehicle from unintentional damage. Quickly and safely disengage both columns simultaneously with an easy-to-use, single-point airlock release. Rugged and ready to get the most demanding jobs done right, the 16k Two-Post is the lift you need in your shop.
