Vertical Ram Lifts

General Information

Vertical Ram Lifts Include Single Ram and Double Ram Models

Our supplier has been manufacturing Vertical Ram Lifts since 1947 and is one of the few companies to still offer this unique style of hydraulic lift. Vertical Ram Platform Lifts are permanent installations that are fully customizable and require a pit. Autoquip manufactures these high travel lifts with either one or two rams based on the application.

Single Ram Lifts are most widely used in heavy equipment manufacturing and processing, air cargo handling, warehousing, stage/orchestra lifts, or dock areas where high capacities are traveling high distances in the smallest possible footprint. Dual Vertical Rams are speed-synchronized and load-equalized by cables and sheave systems or structural steel stabilization.

Pneumatic, or Hydraulic.

Mobility Options

Multiple types of powered
and unpowered options.

Tilters, rotators, conveyors,

Product Information

Durability and Quality

  • Precision-built steel ram plungers are polished to a mirror-finish. Each bearing is fitted individually to the ram, creating a wear-proof and close precision tolerance— along with our exclusive fluid prison seal— that keeps the ram oil tight at zero or maximum working pressures.
  • Minimum 3/8-inch thick steel reinforced platform minimizes deck deflection, maximizes load stability, and extends life of the platform deck.
  • Loading platform features structural steel channels for rigidity and stability under heavy axle loads.
  • Large diameter lifting rams with long plunger bearings defend against platform bending and movement under high edge load and other eccentric conditions.


  • Simple and reliable wall-mounted operator controls offer the operator complete visual contact of the lift during raising and lowering.
  • Extremely high axle load and rollover load capacities offer limitless options to the types of vehicles that can be used on or around the lift.
  • Remotely located power reduces lift noise and improves quality of the work environment for work-site personnel.
  • Holding valve eliminates platform downward movement once the “UP” button is released, and the lift reaches the upper load transfer elevation.
  • Lifting rams maintain platform stability and level throughout the lift’s vertical travel without the need for additional stabilization.


Maintenance and Warranty

  • Vertical rams are the only moving part, reducing overall maintenance activities and costs.
  • Extremely low operating pressures minimize wear on all hydraulic and power unit components.
  • We offer an industry-best 2-year warranty on all parts as a promise that you’ve purchased the industry’s most reliable lift.
