Tamar Portable Mid Rise Scissor Car Lift FAQs

How do I use the Tamar scissor lift?

Simply drive over the lift, making sure that your tyres are straddling either side. Then swing out the lifting arms to underneath your jacking points or suitable lifting point on the underside of the car. Next, place four of the supplied rubber pads onto the ends of the arms and you are ready to go. 


Simply pressing the up button will raise the vehicle and have it so the wheels are free. Push button operation means that as soon as you take your finger off the up button, the lift stops and does not raise any more.


Is the Tamar portable?

Yes. There are mobility wheels built into the design to enable you to move the unit around your space.


How is the Tamar lift powered?

The Tamar mid-rise lift is powered by a 240-volt power unit that is mounted on a portable cart. The power unit can be positioned to allow for maximum efficiency. This power unit cart is also used to move the Tamar on a smooth level surface. This lift can easily be rolled from an inside work bay to an outside concrete apron work area in just a few minutes.


What hydraulic oil will I need for this car lift?

The Tarmar does not come included with hydraulic fluid. You will need 8 litres of iso32 hydraulic oil which can be purchased from us.


What power socket will I need?

This car lift comes already fitted with male 16 amp blue socket. You will need to have a female socket to plug into or at least a converter fly lead to convert to a 13 amp socket. 


As it is a 2.2kw motor, the ring main supplying the lift will need to have a minimum of a 16C or 16D type fuse to allow for the initial in-rush as the motor first turns.


I would like to know more about the dual hydraulic rams.

The Tamar features dual hydraulic rams. These are heavy-duty, with British Standard Pipe connections and parachute valves. 


Does the Tamar come with a warranty?

This lift comes with a 12 month component parts warranty. There is no on-site call out warranty implied with this lift. The warranty can be increased to 24 months for an additional £150.


How will my Tamar lift be delivered?

Depending on your premises and unloading facilities, your full rise scissor car lift will be delivered via a tail lift truck. The delivery truck will have a pallet truck so a tarmac or concrete surface to unload onto is needed. If you have a gravel drive they will unload as a kerbside drop, alternatively  please contact us for other delivery options.  

We are also able to send any of our products overseas. Find out more about our delivery service.


How do I assemble my Tamar lift?

Although this lift comes 90% pre-assembled, there will be some self-assembly required. This includes connecting cables, hydraulic hoses, attaching lifting arms, adjusting locking mechanism and so on. 

We are able to offer support over the phone and can also provide a self-installation sign-off visit to confirm you have installed your product correctly. Or you can utilise our installation service.
