Publication Date: 
May 01 / 2019
An auto lift (or hoist) is a piece of equipment that raises vehicles. Vehicles often need to be raised to do inspections and repairs. They are often hydraulically powered, and come in a variety of models, for vehicles of all sizes. Auto lifts and hoists have the potential to cause serious injury or death when not used safely.
