The Levanta Truck & Bus Knuckle Lifts incorporate a comprehensive range of safety features, ensuring a secure and reliable lifting experience:

Control Console with Dead Man’s Buttons: The control console is equipped with dead man’s buttons, designed for simplicity and user-friendliness. This dead man control enhances operator safety by requiring continuous engagement.

Mechanical Safety Locks: The lift is fortified with mechanical safety locks that effectively secure the lifting process, preventing unintended movement during operation, bolstering overall safety.

Piston Air for Safety Lock Activation: The mechanical safety locks are activated using piston air, contributing to their dependable and controlled engagement. This system ensures consistent and reliable safety mechanisms.

Burst Valve and Pressure Relief Valves: Each lifting piston is outfitted with a burst valve, situated at the rear, and accompanied by hydraulic hoses designed to handle high pressures. Additionally, the lifts are equipped with five distinct pressure relief valves, further enhancing safety measures.

Acoustic Warning and Bypass Key: An acoustic warning system is incorporated, triggering when the lift is positioned just 500 mm away from the collapsed position. 

Anti-Slip Platform Finish: To prevent slippage and enhance traction, all platform surfaces feature an embossed anti-slip finish. This design choice ensures stability for both operators and the lifted vehicles.

Electronic Balance System with Automatic Leveling: The lifts are equipped with an electronic balance system that facilitates automatic leveling. This feature ensures that the lifted load remains stable and secure throughout the lifting process.

Runway Leveling Control with Photo Sensors: The inclusion of photo sensors allows for precise control over the leveling of the runways. These sensors enable accurate adjustment, contributing to a consistent and safe lifting experience.

Through the integration of these safety features, Levanta Truck & Bus Knuckle Lifts offer a reliable and secure lifting solution that prioritizes the well-being of operators and the protection of lifted vehicles.

Discover the exceptional features of Levanta’s Truck & Bus Knuckle Lifts:

  1. Robust Lifting Strength: The lifting capacity of these knuckle lifts is evident through specially engineered solutions for this model. Tubular structure runways and resilient metal sheeting are adept at enduring demanding conditions, including asymmetric loads.

    – Control console integrates dead man’s buttons for intuitive operation.
    – Mechanical safety locks secure the lift during operation, with compressed air employed to activate them.
    – Burst valves positioned at the rear of each lifting piston, reinforced with high-pressure hydraulic hoses, and supported by five distinct pressure relief valves.
