for Info on a New In-Ground Lift? Or are you just fed up with spending
your Company's profit fixing your "High-Pressure In-Ground Lift"
that operates with an electric/hydraulic power unit that someone sold you only 8 to 10 years ago? (Sooner
or later high pressure hydraulic cylinders begin leaking and need
rebuilding or replacement costing about $700.00 each,
sometimes even more.
high-pressure lift, whether it's mounted on the floor
surface or installed underground utilizes an
electric/hydraulic power unit that will need repair or
replacement. The electric motor can burn out or internal
oil pump will wear out and lose the ability
to lift heavier vehicles, and if the power unit needs
replacement, they can cost another $500.00 or
even more depending who you are getting it from.
there are more wearable parts that wear out on a High-Pressure In-Ground Lift
as well as a surface mounted lift. The most commonly
replaced parts include small safety latch air cylinders,
latches, latch pins, springs, internal coiled air hoses
that crack, leak (or just break), high pressure hydraulic
hoses that leak, plunger wear
guide bushings that wear out, hydraulic cylinder seals if
the cylinders can even be rebuilt... cover plate gaskets and

Tried and True No Nonsense Design. A GLOBE Low-Pressure
In-Ground Lift usually costs even less than a High Pressure In-Ground Lift!
Additionally, from our experience it's obvious that they

This not that
uncommon for us to see in our line of work... where calls
come in from Customers across the Nation, "Owners of
Low-Pressure In-Ground Lifts" that sometimes are
Three or Four DECADES OLD! They're most
often looking for a simple seal kit to renew the reliable
service that the lift has given them for so many years.
Reliable lifts like these used that many years virtually
pay for themselves many times over, giving a service life that high pressure
can not attain unless the High-Pressure lift Owner spends
1/3 the cost of a brand new lift every
10 years or so just keeping the damn thing working.

small high pressure hose fittings that can break, wear out,
leak oil or fill the cassette up with smelly toxic waste water you have
to pump out occasionally so the internal lift
components won't corrode and fail.
don't need... little air operated lock-latch
air-cylinders that can leak air, corrode, stick open or closed
with operating hardware that fails, like clevis pins,
cotter pins, air line fittings, toggle air-valves, etc. (Usually
when there is a car up on it.)
don't need... coiled plastic air hoses for
safety latch operation that are sealed in the underground container that can get
worn out, pinched and slowly leak
air or even blow apart and fail at the worst possible time...

"Tried & True
It actually pays to
repair those 50 to 60 year old lifts rather than replacing them with
a shorter lifespan, high-pressure in-ground lift that has almost a half a hundred parts that begin wearing out the moment you
start really using it.
Regardless of what
any "High Pressure In-Ground Lift Manufacturer" seems to want to
admit, in our opinion any brand 'High Pressure In-Ground Lift' will be lucky to make it past
7 to 9 years of service life without some expensive repair work involved. Either
one or two new high pressure cylinders, a hydraulic hose
perhaps a new electric/hydraulic power unit.
You get the
idea... and YOU get the repair bill.
PSI and even higher
operating pressures on High Pressure In-Ground (and
surface mounted) Lifts mean more stress and wear on the
lifting system and it's many parts involved in the
operating process. That
is the honest truth, no bullshit about it!
lifts use the pressure in your Air Compressor Tank...
stress on the equipment, same service capabilities.
lift companies in the last 10-15 years took a huge gamble when they
stopped making these tried-and-true low-pressure lift designs, gambling that Consumers will buy their over engineered, expensive to maintain high pressure
designs. That's why even now, they continue to claim low-pressure lifts using underground
oil tanks are illegal. The reason for this is that they have to push their
new 'high-pressure designs' on consumers even though many Lift Repair
Technicians agree the old design is the
most cost effective, most reliable design in existence to this very day. Remember
also, that high-pressure means Manufacturers will be making more parts to sell
you for years to come.

if anybody tells you "Low-Pressure In-Ground lifts are against the law because
of environmental regulations." You will soon see for yourself, that they
really have NO valid argument. Much of the time
people really don't even know

if you like to have your company's lifts in the ground & out
of the way where they belong... and you still have to make
a hole in the floor to install one... so you might as well
buy a lift that you will not have to replace or repair
years to come. GLOBE Low-Pressure Lifts are
the smart way to go!
