4 Post Heavy Duty Material Lift : The new standard for heavy duty elevated lifting

The 4XLift™ from Wildeck is one of their newest, most powerful lifters yet.

Safety/Guarding Features


  • ANSI/ASME B20.1 code requires safety gates and 8' high guarding on all accessible sides of the lift
  • 4XLift™ gates have electrical and mechanical interlocks that prevent VRC operation if the gates are not fully closed, and gates cannot be opened if the carriage is not at the designated level

Carriage Safety Options:

Wildeck VRC's have a standard carriage freefall device. Optional safety carriage locking devices are available to prevent the accidental descent of a raised carriage. When the VRC arrives at an upper level stop, the system locks the carriage enclosure either through automatic (SafeLock™) or manual (DeckStop™) means. 

  • SafeLock™: Automatic; failsafe, the carriage locks automatically when arriving at the
    designated level.
  • DeckStop™: Manual; simple, and reliable. Locking arms provide a highly visible barrier at the loading area.

Additional Safety Options Include:

  • CargoLok™ Carriage Gate— Encloses and secures large rolling loads
  • ArmorCar™ Carriage — A fully-enclosed VRC carriage for additional freight safeguarding
    Heavy Duty Landing Level Gates – Used for heavy duty applications or applications prone to impact during load
