Atlas Platinum PVL-10 ALI Certified 10,000 Lbs. Adjustable Height 2 Post Overhead Car Lift

Product Code: #AP-PVL10-2/3
In-Store Pick Up Discount Available. Restrictions Apply. Please Call For Details.
The ALI CERTIFIED Atlas Platinum PVL-10 was engineered and built to offer a commercial grade above ground lift to those customers who have "fallen in love" with the reliability offered by the Double S column design and symmetric columns. Tens of thousands of above ground lifts incorporating the Double S column design have been sold worldwide over the past two decades. The Double S column design was so revolutionary, that it was protected by a patent. That patent has now expired.

The Atlas Platinum PVL-10 can be installed with the columns positioned symmetrically or asymmetrically. When the columns are installed in the asymmetrical configuration, there may be some benefit to open car doors. When the columns are installed in the symmetric configuration there is more width between the columns. Please check the specifications page and picture gallery to determine which height setting and column configuration (asymmetrical or symmetrical) would be the best for your application. Both column configurations offer easy vehicle access and superior vehicle lift point support due to the three stage front arm design.

The Atlas Platinum PVL-10 features three (3) stage telescoping front arms, double screw rubber/metal adapters with truck height extensions, protective rubber pads mounted to the carriage , rubber column guards, and a price that cannot be matched.

This product features an ALLY Hydraulic AL2850 Power Unit. This premium power unit is certified by MET Laboratories Inc. for electrical compliance in the United States and Canada. Extra heavy-duty armatures and more motor windings with increased silver metal included in the wires and connections create far less heat generation and allow ALLY Hydraulic power units to maintain constant torque through the lifting process. This power unit also carries an industry leading two-year limited warranty.

A couple of installers put up the PVL-10 in about 3 hours. Click here to view a timelapse video of it in action.

Good value/quality but very (very) poor instructions


A one star deduction for very poor instructions. It came with a different kind of limit switch (mercury tilt switch) which mounted differently than the switch in the instructions. I finally figured out it was a Champion Lift switch and then could see how it was mounted. The illustrations are lacking detail and the written material was not very descriptive at all (go look at BendPak instructions and compare). You'll need to be pretty sharp to figure out how to put this thing together the right way. It was packed very well and there was no damage to anything. No parts were missing. It has good build quality, none of the threaded connectors stripped, and the part tolerances were good. The welds looked good as well. You get the full set of lift adapters (others charge you extra). I also like the new color scheme if that matters :)
<br>In operation, it is smooth and powerful and works as it should. I'd buy another Atlas. Good quality and value.

The lift arrived exactly when they said it would. Very easy to install and this is my first Lift. Had a few scratches but not a big deal. I’m glad I went with Greg Smith equipment and atlas

Great experience


Great lift, fast shipping and amazing costumer service! I will definitely buy again.



We're ready to purchase our second one. As the description states, from a smart car to a full size pickup. Wish we could post actual pics for proof. Downside is that this beauty arrived scratched due to improper packaging and handling.
