The Ideal Van Lift

The culmination of years of engineering, Cantilever Series models are highly versatile and include numerous desirable features. A bolt-on underside mount is compatible with most modern vans and eliminates the need for any welding. The platform is constructed from corrosion-resistant aluminum and folds laterally, allowing for access to the rear of the vehicle without operating the lift.
