Holt - Full Rise Car Scissor Lift

The HOLT is a Full Rise Car Scissor Lift, a modern design well thought out floor mounted maintenance car repair lift.  The lift is simple to install and use and whilst taking up very little workshop space still provides a full height working lift, with ample headroom to a max of 1.9m.

The lift is ideal for almost all types of car repairs, brakes, suspension, engine gearbox and all the services down the middle of the bodywork making it a great all round lift.

The Holt comes with load bearing up ramps which can be locked into place either at one end of the lift or both ends. This feature extends the overall platform length up to 2030mm, ideal for longer vehicles. The three tonne lifting capacity means that it is easily capable of handling all but the very heaviest of cars, 4×4’s and SUV’s.

The four ram design has a hydraulic locking system, which means the lift can be raised and left at whatever height required. This compact and extremely versatile lift will be a very useful all round addition to any workshop.  The Holt is simple to use, economical and requires minimal simple maintenance to keep it in top working condition. What more could you ask of a lift?


The HOLT Full Rise Car Scissor Lift is most at home in a working environment, be it in a Commercial Garage or in an Enthusiast Garage, this workhorse is a great all rounder, delivering very similar performance to that of a two post lift but without the drawbacks of the two posters.

These lifts come into their own in garages with awkward corners and workshops with limited space. Where the posts of other designs limit where the lift can be installed or simply there’s not enough space to put in our lifts with posts, then the Holt can play one of its trump cards: its space saving design. By not having posts, it opens up different installation possibilities whilst still delivering great performance, making the Holt a very sensible choice for home and business users alike.

The lift can be used at hip height to service brakes and suspension work, or used fully raised for working on everything under the car, or anywhere in between. Like most scissor lifts the Holt works quietly and smoothly by having an assisted fulcrum, a feature Strongman pioneered here in the UK. This adds a level of sophistication to the performance, lifting more smoothly and importantly when lowering, slowing down the descent just before the vehicle reaches ground level.

Holt Full Rise Scissor Car Lift FAQs

What is the power supply of the Holt?

The power supply is a 2.2kw motor,  240V single phase, 16 amp Cee-form male socket on the lift. Your building will require a C or D type motor rated breaker in the consumer unit. The control panel comes with low voltage 24v buttons for your safety.

Why is there no need for a mechanical lock?

The double hydraulic cylinders provide positive pressure on both sides of the ram seals meaning there is no need for a mechanical lock. The benefits of this are that the lift locks at any height you require and comes straight down when you want to lower the vehicle.

Does the Holt lift come with a warranty?

This full rise scissor car lift comes with a 12 month component parts warranty. The warranty can be increased to 24 months for an additional £150.

How will my Holt lift be delivered?
