Alness XL


In Stock

Quick Overview

Extra tall version of our ever popular Alness lift, comes with increased platform lengths for longer wheel based vehicles to park on the lift


Unique design free standing 4 post car lift using a strong wrap around post design. The cross beam wraps around the post meaning that the lift remains rigid. As the lift is free standing it does not need to be bolted down to the floor.


Using a 240v electric hydraulic motor it lifts the vehicle up to a height of 2164 mm. This allows for a under platform height of 1967mm so you can drive in another car underneath.


This lift is fully CE complaint with mechanical sprung loaded locking mechanism, cable break assembly, parachute valves and 24v dead man controls.


Locks are simply disengaged by the lever on the end of the cross beam when the user wants to go down.


The robust motor is rated at 2.2 kW, the motor works off a single phase electrical supply and requires only a 16 amp supply, with safety 24v push button controls.


Product Description

The Alness XL is the bigger version of the Alness, with the same features and accessories too. Unique free standing 4 post lift with a  “Wrap-Around” carriage system design giving the lift its rigidity and stability. This lift is ideal for longer wheel based vehicles that would not fit on our standard Alness lift.

The lift also comes with an increase platform height, this means SUV and 4×4 vehicles are able to park underneath the platform.


Accessories that are included with the Alness XL lift are:

Tool / jacking tray – Can be used to lift your vehicles wheels off the platforms when used with a bottle jack or car jack. The tray can be used for your tools whilst working on your car so you have everything to hand. Also comes with a drain plug so can catch fluids and safely drain them. The jacking tray is rated to 1.5T, however, if you want the “real thing” then go for our scissor jacking beam as an optional extra.

Aluminium lightweight up ramp set –  These are removeable and can be stored on the lift platforms ensuring no extra floor space is taken up.

Drip tray set – Three plastic drip trays that can be positioned within the platform gap to prevent drips from falling onto the car parked under the platform.

Mobility Kit – Allows for the lift to be moved around your building floor. Lift must not have cars when wanting to use the mobility kit. Recommended two man operation when moving the lift over your level concrete floor.

To make sure you have enough ceiling height to store two vehicles in the parking space of one, the rule of thumb is to measure the total height of the two vehicles that you’re wanting to store and then add 250mm. This will give you the minimum ceiling height required.


Dimensions of lift do not include motor unit and control gear that mounts on to the post. This will add 250mm onto the overall width of this lift.


This lift requires an element of installation. Please ensure that you have got the relevant knowledge and experience in installing garage equipment prior to purchase. Assumptions are made that the installer has worked on similar equipment before and knows about things such as levelling off platforms, wiring in switches, connecting up electrics and so on. If you do not have experience of this then please ask us for a quotation to install the lift for you.
