MaxJax has been redesigned from the ground up by BendPak. We've made 10 enhancements over the previous version that are featured below. If you pre-ordered MaxJax, you are getting this latest version!

All new MaxJax

#1Locking System

Old Dannmar MaxJax M6 safety locks

OLD Dannmar M6

When lift was at max rise, upon initial decent, the safety locks would have the tendency to inadvertently reset and stop downward motion on one or both sides.

New BendPak MaxJax M6K safety locks

NEW BendPak M6K

Corrected the inadvertent resetting of the safety lock(s) at full rise upon initial decent and added two additional safety lock position. Now includes 7 safety lock positions.

#2Lifting Carriage Slide Blocks

OLD Dannmar M6

The steel journals that capture and hold the slide blocks were separated by 1.25". This positioned the slide blocks farther apart minimizing the load forces on the slide blocks which help mitigate the tendency for the carriage to "bind" even after hydraulic pressure is released.

NEW BendPak M6K

The upper steel journals that capture and hold the slide blocks were moved laterally (closer towards the lifting arms) by 3/16". This shift and repositioning of the slide blocks maintains the carriage and hydraulic cylinder in a true vertical position at all time. Past MaxJax models experienced a slight tilt forward attitude that resulted in the carriage and cylinder remaining tilted during use.

#3Baseplate

Old Dannmar M6 baseplate design

OLD Dannmar M6

Standard as shown.

New BendPak M6K MaxJax baseplate design

NEW BendPak M6K

The baseplate and rear-mounted anchors were extended outward an additional 1-1/2". The location of the wheels location was not affected as the baseplates were notched to accommodate the baseplate shift. By extending the anchor offset farther away from the centroid of the column (moment loading), anchor bolt pull-out tension was dramatically reduced.

#4Column Wheels

Old Dannmar M6 column wheels

OLD Dannmar M6

Hard, non-bearing nylon wheels did not roll well over rough surfaces.

New MaxJax portable two-post lift column wheels

NEW BendPak M6K

Heavy-duty urethane, non-marring wheels feature roller bearings for smooth effortless mobility, even over rough surfaces.

#5Hose Storage

Old Dannmar M6 power unit hose storage hooks

OLD Dannmar M6

Dual hose storage hooks hung the hoses during storage. Cluttered and messy.

NEW BendPak M6K

Rear mounted storage bin keep hoses neatly stowed.

#6Power Unit Cart Wheels

Old Dannmar MaxJax M6 Power Unit Cart Wheels

OLD Dannmar M6

Hard, non-bearing nylon wheels did not roll well over rough surfaces.

New BendPak MaxJax M6K Power Unit Cart Wheels

NEW BendPak M6K

Heavy-duty urethane, non-marring wheels feature roller bearings for smooth effortless mobility, even over rough surfaces.

#7ALI Certification

OLD Dannmar M6

Only a select few units shipped with ALI Gold Labels.

NEW BendPak M6K

M6K models are ALI Certified. Lifts bearing the Gold Label are certified to have been tested by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) and found to meet all industry safety and performance standards as outlined in ANSI/ALI ALCTV (current edition).

#8Quick-Disconnect Fittings

OLD Dannmar M6

Standard "nipple type" utility couplers. Typically leak when disconnected and mated.

NEW BendPak M6K

Costlier flush face "no-drip" fittings are used that minimizes fluid loss for a cleaner, safer work environment.

#9Paint and Carriage Binding

Old Dannmar MaxJax M6 paint

OLD Dannmar M6

Textured black paint featured on previous Dannmar M6 models caused friction. There is evidence that the textured paint had contributed to carriage binding problems on past units.

New BendPak MaxJax M6K paint

NEW BendPak M6K

A gunmetal gray powder coat is used that has a significantly lower coefficient of friction.

#10Motorcycle Adapter

OLD Dannmar M6

Was not available for the Dannmar M6 series.

NEW BendPak M6K

Optional MC adapter feature wider lifting platform and drive-over approach ramps.
