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.

Great Shop addition by Jason C. - verified purchaser
I Bought this lift for my hobby shop and to service my dually. It has been trouble free for over a year now. Great addition and very well built. I spent a lot of time comparing multiple lifts and companies, before buying this lift. I have used it for everything from vintage rat rods to a 2017 four door f350 Superduty. Upon install, it did have a leak in the primary ram. I called customer support, and they were very helpful, and took the time to walk me thru where to look for the O-ring that was broken. I couldn't ask for more, They done what they said they would do, and were there when I needed them. Money well spent, and I am happy with the purchase and service.
