1,2,3 A 1960's Tecalemit 3-Post Lift

Case study Was It A 2-Post or 4-Post Lift – THREE!

Posted on

Here at Tecalemit Garage Equipment, we have been supplying vehicle lifting solutions for ‘decades’, and numerous Tecalemit products are still in regular use many decades later. The Tecalemit ‘Tri-Tec’ 3-Post lift was a popular lifting solution in the 1960s. A move from in-ground single hydraulic column operation to a surface-mounted configuration offered simplicity in installation from reduced civil work.

Recently we came across an example of the legendary Tecalemit 3-Post lift in its original location. These days, we are so accustomed to looking at 2-Post and 4-Post lifts we have to look twice when presented with 3-Post configurations.

Today’s Tecalemit Lifts are built with the same engineering pedigree to ensure they stand a chance of lasting as long as this ageing Tri-Tec model. Whilst both the Tecalemit Tri-Tec and the BMC ‘Landcrab’ from our original Tecalemit product literature are legacies of a bygone era, today Tecalemit SF/9010/H electro-mechanical model is still very popular with workshops that require a traditional hi-quality electro-mechanical unit from a well-established lift supplier.
