This lift lands a perfect rating
from a shop owner who attests
to its dependability.

THE REVIEW

T

homas Stevens, owner of
Powerhouse Performance in
Simi Valley, California, provided a review of the XPR-10S
and attests to its dependability.
After Stevens purchased the XPR10S, BendPak put him in contact with a
third-party company to take care of the
installation of the lift - a process that
Stevens says went very smoothly. The
lift came with a manual; the manual was
detailed with color illustrations, which
Stevens found useful. However, he did
say that the manual was barely needed.
The lift's operation was straightforward and did not pose any concerns or
questions for Stevens.
"It goes up and down. It's got a button and a release lever," he says.
With the button and lever
mounted to the post of the
lift, there is not much to worry about when operating,
Stevens reports.
When a vehicle is centered between the posts, the
lift's arms can quickly and
easily be placed into position to
initiate the lifting process.
"The arms are telescoping, so you
can pull them in and out," he says, noting his favorite feature of the XPR-10S.
Stevens also mentions the lift's ability to facilitate the use of screw lift pads
on the arm-ends. He claims the screw
lift pads make adjustments much easier
than using solid pads, allowing for the
precise flexibility to adjust to multiple
vehicle types.
Stevens says a vehicle can be lifted
into place in around 10-15 seconds
and lowered back to the ground in a
similar amount of time. Powerhouse

features low-pressure HVLP direct-drive cylinders, eliminating
the need for lifting chains or screw mechanisms. A dual-synchro equalization system maintains equal lifting and provides

Performance uses the XPR-10S to lift
old school hot rods, early model Ford
vehicles, new-age muscle cars, and even
trucks. The 10,000-lb rated lift allows
the shop to work on a large range of vehicle types.
"It's a huge asset to my business," Stevens says. "The reason why is because
of the quality. First things first, it's the

quality. I've used this lift every day for
the last two years and it's never let me
down."
The XPR-10S' long-standing dependability impressed this shop owner
and is the main reason he gave the lift a
top rating.
