Originally developed and built by American Lifts, the Single Arm family of scissors lift has been made in the USA for over 30 years. Since Autoquip's acquisition of the American Lift company, the production of the Single Arm series has been limited. However, because of such popularity of this legacy family of American Lifts, we now point our former Single Arm customers to one of two expanded, updated, and more easily customized family of hydraulic scissors: Titan and Series 35.
Read our responses to the most frequently asked questions regarding this transition:
Q: Why was this done?
A: Three reasons. First, Single Arm components will soon be obsolete and more difficult to procure and replace. Second, most of the Single Arm's design history is still in paper format - not electronic CAD files - and is extremely difficult to modify and customize. And last, the Single Arm design is based on outdated manufacturing technologies, which drive up cost when duplicated with modern machinery and techniques.
Q: What about the Single Arm lift I own today?
A: Autoquip will continue to service and support all Single Arm lifts in the field. We've started the process of crossing over to alternate, retrofit parts to substitute those commonly replaced parts that are experiencing obsolescence.
Q: So are you saying that you can't or won't sell me a Single Arm lift similar to one that I already have?
A: Absolutely not! We will continue to sell a few of the more popular models. And our design engineers can develop a near equivalent to any model lift you may own or desire. However, special-engineered designs will come at a higher price and longer lead time than that available with our Series 35 and Titan scissors lift families.
Our Series 35 and Titan families of lift tables have more models to choose from, more available options, lower prices, and shorter lead times - at the same high quality and dependability you've come to expect from Autoquip and American Lifts. We also stand behind every Series 35 and Titan lift by offering a 2-year guarantee.
