Forward Lift’s new FS77 scissor lift

FS77 Scissor LiftForward Lift’s new FS77 scissor lift is packed with advanced efficiency features that make it a reliable lift for smaller service bays and quick-service tasks.

Third-party tested and certified by the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) to meet industry safety and performance standards, the scissor lift is available through most national auto parts retailers, as well as from more than 100 authorized Forward Lift distributors in North America.

The Forward Lift FS77scissor lift uses less than 44 square feet of space, and features a low-profile 4 1/8-inch drive-over height for easy vehicle positioning. Its 24 ¾-inch independent platforms accommodate a wide range of vehicles and pick-up points.

Ramps attached to the platforms are hinged to drop down to a 65-degree angle to increase accessibility for brake and wheel service, or lock in the up position to extend the pick-up point surface area. The lift also features a 78 5/8-inch rise height and has a 7,700 lb. lifting capacity.

The lift features a patent-pending inverse piston manifold system that fully synchronizes the platform movement during lifting and lowering cycles. The same system also offers blocked platform functionality that prevents both platforms from lowering if one platform is stopped by an obstruction or engaged lock.

“The FS77 scissor lift was designed to help shop owners expand their businesses and get the most productivity out of a small work space with a minimal investment,” says John Uhl, sales and brand manager for Forward Lift. “We know reliability is a key factor for shop owners and managers when making a lift purchasing decision. Forward Lift takes a great deal of pride as an industry leader in the extent of life-cycle testing we conducted to ensure the FS77scissor lift is built to perform for many years to come.”
