Kwik Bay - The Quick Service Lift

It is the customer's responsibility to follow the Operation and Installation Manual to assure the lift is installed, commissioned and operated according to manufacturer's recommendation.



IN ADDITION


Failure to read and understand the information below regarding the CORRECT OPERATION of the Atlas® KwikBay locking system may result in damage to the lift.



The Atlas® Kwik Bay mid-rise is designed to QUICKLY raise a vehicle to a desired height, perform the necessary service work, and then lower the vehicle to the ground WITHOUT engaging the pneumatic positive lock bar system. The pneumatic positive locking system will automatically engage in the unlikely event of a hydraulic failure while the vehicle is in the air. If the vehicle is to be stored on the raised lift platforms for an extended period of time then the pneumatic positive lock system needs to be activated (by the user).



IMPORTANT


When the vehicle service work or vehicle storage time has been completed and the operator wants to the lower the vehicle to the ground (or to a lower locked position), please follow these important steps and remember:

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE LOCK BARS BE COMPLETELY DISENGAGED WHEN THE VEHICLE IS BEING LOWERED TO THE GROUND. FAILURE TO FULLY DISENGAGE BOTH LOCK BARS DURING THE LOWERING PROCESS WILL CAUSE FRAME DAMAGE TO THE LIFT.

  • When the consoles DOWN Button is pressed (to lower the vehicle), it is IMPERATIVE for the operator to physically check to make sure that the lift platforms raise up enough to allow BOTH Blue Safety Lock Bars to FULLY disengage from the Silver Safety Lock Bars mounted on the frame. Neither of the Blue Safety Lock Bars should engage the frames silver lock bar if the lift is to be lowered all the way to the ground. THE POSITIVE LOCK BAR SYSTEM IS PNUEMATICALLY CONTROLLED (air powered)




  • If one (but not both) of the blue lock bars should engage before the lift reaches the ground, (platforms will become unlevel) then damage to the lift frame may occur.






  • If the operator does NOT WANT TO LOWER THE VEHICLE ALL THE WAY TO THE GROUND, (perhaps only a few inches from the current raised position), then the operator must make sure that both of the Blue Safety Lock Bars are fully disengaged during the lowering process. After pressing the DOWN button on the remote console, the platforms begin to move up and the lock bars release (disengage). As the lift platforms descend to the desired lower locking position (lock bars are disengaged), the operator should make sure that when the desired position is reached that both lock bars fully engage the frames horizontal Silver Safety Lock Bars at the same time and at the same position so that the platforms remain LEVEL.
