The electric motor for the power unit requires 220 Volt (single phase) 60 Hz (+/- 5%, so 209-231 volts). We recommend using at least a 10 gauge (grounded) wire from the electrical panel. The power unit may or may not have a short pigtail (no plug) that can be wired to either an optional quick disconnect box (mounted on the lift column) or to a male/female plug combination. It is imperative that the lift’s power supply can be disconnected quickly in case of an emergency. Electric motor switches can fail for a variety of reasons. E.G.: abuse….wear…moisture.
If the electric switch would become compromised and the power supply to the lift needed to be disconnected immediately, a quick disconnect box or a male/female electrical plug combination will allow the operator to disconnect the power from the lift.
A 30 amp breaker is required for 220V.
Electrical switches do not last forever and many times do not give an indication of possible failure. Use common sense and make sure that you can disconnect the main power supply to your lift if needed.
Do this before you put a vehicle on your lift.
NO…but YES. Most lifts have only one column that can be used to mount the power unit. This column has the mounting bracket. Make sure that you install that specific column on the side where you want to locate the power unit.

PV-12P by Les
I purchased this 12k lift mainly for the width and height as I park my slide-in camper in the space behind it. The installation was not difficult although some instructions could be better written and illustrated. A couple gripes starting with the quality of hardware. I prefer grade 8 on a structure that I'm trusting my life with instead of the low grade metric (not bashing metric) it came with. The 2 piece cross beam side flanges do not sandwich snugly together which required shims to close the nearly 1/4in. gap. You cannot just expect to pull it in with bolts. Oh and, that lock release cable broke the second time I used the lift (yes, it was installed correctly).Issues resolved by homeowner, I now have the lift I need and am happy with it.
