The Atlas 408-SL super deluxe portable vehicle storage lift is designed for those car enthusiasts who demand the absolute best look and superior quality. The Atlas 408-SL has all the great features of our Atlas Garage Pro Series 4 post hobbyist lifts, but incorporates many features found only on our Atlas commercial grade 4-post lifts. All columns incorporate two special bends which help to increase the column strength. These strategic bends also increase the surface area for the slide block to travel. Horizontal cables are "hidden" inside of the cross tubes. Professional grade wheel covers are used to eliminate almost all exposure of cables and double lock system.The Atlas 408-SL has "more metal" and weighs over 100 lbs. more than other hobbyist lifts based upon the same column and runway configuration.
The Atlas 408-SL is built to the same commercial lift standards as our Atlas 412 and Atlas 414 four post lifts, but also offers portability (Caster Kit sold separately).
If you are looking for a lift that stands out from all the other storage lifts sold in the USA, then take a good look at the Atlas 408-SL.
Single Point Lock Release - This Atlas Storage Lift has a manual single point release that allows the operator to release all the safety locks at one time. The spring loaded lock handle and power unit dump valve must be activated at the same time. (two hand operation) If the lock handle is released and the dump valve handle is still being pressed, the lift will continue to descend and all locks will automatically re-engage at the next lower lock point.
Double Lock Safety System - This Atlas Lift locking system offers a unique two position locking mechanism found only in commercial grade cable style four post lifts. The Double Lock Safety System is found exclusively on the Atlas Garage 408SL, Atlas Garage 409HP, Atlas Garage Pro 8000, the Atlas Garage Pro 9000, and the Atlas ST-7000. The Double Lock Safety System is designed to ensure that if a lifting cable becomes slack (for any reason), the secondary locking mechanism automatically engages. This Double Lock Safety System is found only on other four post above ground lifts costing hundreds of dollars more.
Lock Ladder Column Design - This Atlas Lift has a commercial grade lock ladder. We believe that the lock ladder system is the safest locking system for any four post lift. The lock ladder system also provides an infinite number of runway locking positions. The "old-style" welded locks could not be adjusted. The lock ladder is adjustable inside the column so that our customers can "micro-manage" the correct runway height to accommodate any vehicle. The "lock ladder" column system is the same column system found on professional grade lifts found in car dealerships and automotive service centers.
Hidden Cables In Cross Tubes - This lift features a high strength cable system with horizontal cables that are "hidden" inside the cross tubes. Professional grade wheel covers are used to eliminate almost all exposure of cables and double lock system. The high strength cable system is powered by a 110 volt (single phase) power unit to raise and lower the lift. Many competitors use an "old style" chain lifting system with an exposed hydraulic cylinder system. Old style chain lifts are difficult to "level" properly and the exposed hydraulic cylinder is responsible for numerous "door dings".
Motor Mounting Configurations - The column you mount the power unit on can be installed in any one of the four corners of the lift. This gives you greater control of where you position your power unit.
Special Bends In Columns - All columns incorporate two special bends which help to increase the column strength. These strategic bends also increase the surface area for the slide block to travel.
Wider Access Between Runways - There is a wider access area between the runways than many other hobby lifts.
Includes Approach Ramps - The included steel approach ramps can be easily removed by raising the lift to waist height, then lifting the ramps out. Each steel approach ramp weighs 46 lbs.
Includes Heavy Duty Jack Tray - The sturdy jack tray allows for the use of floor jacks or bottle jacks to raise part of any vehicle positioned on the lift. The versatile Jack Tray is also great for holding tools when working under a vehicle or as a catch tray when changing fluids or replacing parts. The jack tray features a heavy duty design for safe, reliable support. The jacking tray can also be easily moved from one end of the lift to the other so you can position it where necessary for each job.
Includes (4) Plastic Drip Trays, and (4) Steel Wheel Stops.

CE Tested And Approved
The letters 'CE' appear on many products that are traded in the European Economic Area (EEA). There are 27 member states of the EU and European Free Trade Association. The CE marking attests the verification by a manufacturer that products meet EU safety requirements. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to carry out the conformity assessment. Conformity assessment testing was performed by CCQS UK Ltd. www.ccqs.co.uk
This Atlas lift (structure and hydraulics) has been tested and has passed the CE conformity requirements. Atlas lifts sold in the USA and Canada use a different power unit than those required by CE. CE requires an electrical control box (with solenoids) that actuates the hydraulic power unit.
Electric power units supplied with above ground lifts in the USA and Canada do not require the electronic control box; therefore the power unit was not tested to CE approval requirements. If you have questions relating to the power unit supplied with your lift, please discuss these with your salesman.
If you are customer from the EU or other foreign county that requires CE approval, please contact our sales office to see how we can help.
408 Installation - Most of our above ground lift customers install their own car lifts. The average time to install this Atlas car lift is four hours with two people. We provide detailed installation instructions with all of our two post above ground lifts and our four post above ground lifts.
