Installation and Setup

When installing the Atlas BP8000 two-post lift, there are crucial steps to follow, especially concerning space requirements and secure mounting. We’ll guide you through the necessary preparations and procedures to ensure a safe and efficient setup.

Space Requirements

Considerations for Installation Space:

  • The overall height needed for the Atlas BP8000 lift is minimal, making it suitable for low ceiling garages.
  • It’s important to have a total column height of 108 inches or 9 feet to accommodate the lift.
  • An ample workspace around the lift is necessary for safe operation. Home garages should have additional clearance on all sides for maneuvering vehicles and equipment.

Mounting and Anchoring

Proper mounting and anchoring are essential for the two-post lift’s stability and operation. We use high-quality anchor bolts and ensure firm embedding into concrete.

Following our specific mounting hardware guidelines ensures that the baseplate of the lift is securely attached.

Anchor Bolts and Concrete Recommendations:
