How do you maintain your car lift? Perhaps the most important car elevator maintenance is to adjust the cable. Over time, the cable extends, and if not adjusted, the cable may jump the pulley or cause the elevator to rise smoothly. Each cable should have a deflection of about 0.5 degrees (should not move more than 0.5 degrees). Two-post or four-post lift is correct. The adjustment operation is very simple and can be viewed by the purchase elevator is included with the manual.
Next is the lubrication of the elevator. The sprockets, cable pulleys, safety latches and bracket rails in the tower are lubricated every other period of time. As for the deadline, I suggest you should do it once a week.
In fact check your car lift whether there are other things that are easy but rarely done. You need to make sure that there are no things that could cause the machine to bind in the rails or transport (shop wipes, tools, cardboard, etc.). The elevator can run the lift without load to ensure that the safety function is working properly.
In addition to regular internal inspections, the maintenance of the lift also requires that all vehicle lifts be inspected at least annually by a "qualified elevator inspector". Lift inspection is a modification of the operating mechanism, safety systems, maintenance, structural integrity, and specific lifts to determine any risk that may affect the ability of the lift to operate in a safe and reliable manner.
General car lift cables usually need to be changed every four to five years. If you see three or more broken wires, replace the lift cable. If the wire or end of the corrosion or rust, kink, crush, cable core protrusion or any other anomalies, it should be replaced. Cables and other elevator components should be kept free of corrosion, solvent. If these agents spill or splash on any elevator parts, rinse immediately and wipe with a clean cloth.
