Maintaining your EAGLE LIFT

Your Eagle lift will provide you with many years of safe and reliable service if you perform these routine maintenance procedures.

2-Post Car Lift Maintenance-

Check for proper operation of carriage safety latches each time you use the auto lift.  You should hear the safety latches click in both posts each time they pass through a lock position.  If one or both of the latches are not functioning properly as described above discontinue using the car lift immediately and repair or replace the safety mechanism.

  1. Check Eagle lift arm restraint locks for proper operation.  The arm restraint locks should automatically engage when the car lift is raised preventing the arm from moving horizontally.  Lubricate the vertical arm restraint rods periodically as needed.
  2. Inspect the car lift arms and pins for wear.  Lubricate the Eagle lift arm pins monthly with wheel bearing grease or white lithium grease.
  3. Check pulleys, chains: chain rollers, roller pins, pulley shafts, etc. for wear.  Lubricate these components monthly with chain lube or oil.
  4. Check equalizing cables for wear and proper tension weekly.  If carriage safety latches do not click simultaneously when raising the car lift, a cable adjustment is necessary. (Refer to installation manual for proper procedure.)  If the cables are frayed or damaged replace immediately with new cables.
  5. Inspect all hoses and fittings for damage or oil leaks and replace as needed.
  6. Inspect cylinders for oil leaks.  Replace or rebuild cylinders as needed.
  7. Lubricate all four inside corners of the posts where the rub blocks contact with white lithium grease as needed.
  8. Inspect all concrete anchor bolts monthly and tighten as needed.  Replace any anchor that will not hold in the concrete.  Eagle lift posts should be plumb and if shimming is necessary all anchors points with gaps between the bottom of the base plate and the floor should be fully shimmed before the anchor is tightened.
  9. Inspect all automotive lift pads monthly and replace as needed.
  10. If car lift has an overhead cut-off switch, check monthly for proper operation.

4-Post Storage Lift Maintenance-

Check all safety latches to be sure they are engaging properly each time you use the Eagle lift.  You should hear the latch click in each post as it passes the safety stops.  If any of the latches are not functioning properly as described above discontinue using the auto lift immediately and repair or adjust the latch mechanism.

  1. Inspect lock release linkage monthly and adjust if necessary.  Lubricate all lock release rod pivot points with oil.
  2. Check equalizing cables for wear and proper tension weekly.  If the 4 safety latches do not click simultaneously when raising the automotive storage lift, a cable adjustment is necessary. (Refer to installation manual for proper procedure.)  If the cables are frayed or damaged discontinue using the storage lift and install new cables.  New cables will stretch after the first few uses and will normally require readjustment.  The longer cables will stretch more than the shorter cables therefore it is normal for a re-adjustment to be necessary after the first few uses of a new auto lift.
  3. Inspect pulleys and pulley shafts for wear and replace if necessary.  Lubricate pulley shafts monthly.
  4. Inspect all hoses and fittings for damage or oil leaks and replace as needed.
  5. Inspect cylinders for oil leaks.  Replace or rebuild cylinders as needed.
  6. Lubricate all four inside corners of the posts where the rub blocks contact with white lithium grease as needed.
