Quick Overview

The Tamar is a freestanding 2800kg capacity portable mid-rise scissor lift. This unit is the perfect lift for body shops and wheel service specialists that need extra lifting height.


This portable lift easily raises a 2.8T car or light truck to a comfortable working height of up to 1200mm.


The unique platform design of the Tamar allows access to some areas on the underside of the car not easily accessible with other portable mid-rise lifts. The dual power cylinders and the unique safety lock bar system, with different lock positions, make the Tamar one of the most popular mid-rise lifts sold in the UK and overseas.


Simply drive over the lift making sure 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. Then 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 then 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.


Our Tamar has been thoroughly tested to meet Industry standards. 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.


The Tamar is a complete mid-rise lift that includes 3 sets of rubber lifting pads. The arms can be adjusted to an almost infinite amount of positions to accommodate unique lifting points found on certain vehicles. The large “foot print” of the Tamar creates a steady platform for the raised vehicle.

Although this lift comes 90% pre-assembled there will be some assembly done by the user. This is things such as connecting of cables, hydraulic hoses, attaching lifting arms, adjusting locking mechanism and so on. If you are not comfortable with this then we suggest you have it installed by a lift engineer. Lift does not come included with hydraulic fluid, you will need 8 litres of iso32 hydraulic oil. This can either be purchased through ourselves or most leading motor factors. Comes already fitted with male 16 amp blue socket, so 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.

Lift comes with a component parts warranty, which is a return to base warranty, but on most instances we send out replacement components prior to receiving the originals to save inconvenience. There is no on site call out warranty implied with this lift. The delivery price that is quoted is for delivery via a rigid lorry with tail lift for unloading. This is comparable to say a builders merchant hi-ab lorry in size, so if you do not have access for such a vehicle please contact us as we can quote for delivery via different methods. Packaged in a sturdy wooden crate to make sure the lift arrives in new condition, so consider you will need to dispose of this packaging after assembling your lift.
