10,000 Lift Inquiry:
Dear Mr. Prospect;
Thanks for the inquiry on a Mohawk 10,000 lb. lift (Our most popular). As requested please consider this email & attachments as step #1 to help you understand the difference in lifts available sold in the US. One big difference is Mohawk Lifts are MADE in the US as opposed to imported from China or “assembled” in the USA.
PDF#1 is a flyer on the 10K lift
PDF#2 is a comparative flyer of the 2 other lift brands we discussed
PDF#3 is a “cut-a-way” showing how the lift is constructed. If desired, we’re happy to send you a PDF of the entire 2 post manufacturing process from raw steel to a finished lift.
PDF 4 & 5 (like the dual use lift brochure I sent yesterday of the service lift or turf lift) shows the tire engaging adaptors of the storage/servive lift & PDF #5 the SPEEDLANE option which allows immediate drive on (no positioning of the swing arms) to the lift as well.
PDF#6 Is a “steel bag” (that every reseller gets and uses) to SHOW the differences in HOW a Mohawk is made.
PDF#7 is a flyer on the most popular options available for our different 2 post lifts.
PDF#8 is similar to PDF#2, but #2 is pictures and minimal verbiage, pdf #8 has lots to read

Mobile Column Lift Comparison Inquiry:
Ladies & Gents;
Some have seen never seen the below, to others a Mohawk sales reminder.
If any of you were “prospects” to buy a mobile lift, and I was selling Mohawk but competing with brand x, y or z, perhaps I’d lay out my presentation in terms of lift safety, functionality & usability. By usability I mean for example; Many brands offer a fork lift adaptor or front to rear bumper adaptor, yet if these certified options aren’t adequately rated to lift the intended vehicles, then they’re not very usable options.
PDF#1 The top section is verbatim from ALI. The remainder is common sense given the fact that Mohawk gives an adequate ALI certification rating to the options to make the lift more usable (for servicing forklifts, or for ambulance & F-450 work trucks). If the brand X option isn’t rated high enough to do the job, then why bother offering the option?
PDF#2 is a “cheat sheet” for our distributors salespeople, some of whom may have never sold a mobile lifty in the past, or who may have never used the ALI website as the sales tool Mohawk teaches our reps that it can be used for.
PDF#3 is a comparative of the lifting forks. If a truck was designed to go down the road on 4 tires on the rear axle, we believe it should likely be raised by 4 tires (not just the outer tire).
PDF #4 is a mobile lift comparative.
While I’d never use another lift companies warning decals as a sales tool, the below decal is helpful at times. This & many other pics can be found at www.mohawklifts.com/pics.

Of the items highlighted in yellow:
#1 Some reading this live where it gets to be less than 41 degrees (todays temp is 31) and possibly gets hotter than 104 degrees. Mohawk lifts do not have hot or cold operating restrictions.
#2 A Mohawk can be used on a floor with a 3 degree slope. Architect’s design floors with a 1 degree slope so water runs to the oi/water separator. When you read 1/8” per foot as the maximum allowable floor slope, know that converted, 1/8th” equals 6/10th of a degree, therefore if following instructions the Rotary lift can’t be used (unless a shop owner is willing to bypass the manufacturers stated safety warnings). As to the second sentence in warning #2, there’s no problem using a Mohawk lift on a suspended floor (also known as a floor with a basement below it).
#3 States don’t exceed the stated tire load rating. Yet if the tires are rated at 7,000 or 8,000 lbs (as written into the sidewall of every tire sold in North America), and the lift is only lifting by the outer tire, then the rear 2 columns shouldn’t lift more than 14k to 16,000 lbs. But EACH column is RATED at 18,000 lbs. each or 36,000 lbs. for the rear 2 columns. The Mohawk Lifts with 22” lifting forks grab BOTH rear tires (inner & outer), don’t exceed a tires load rating, and the rear columns are rated at 32,000 lbs.
#4 Rotary’s brochure claims their mobile lift is the fastest lift in the business fully raising in 60 seconds. A Mohawk is just as fast. Please read item #4 as it actually states an 80 second rise time (not 60) & warns users that the lift needs to “rest” for 8 minutes and 40 seconds between cycles.
Mobile Column Lift Inquiry:
Dear ____(lift prospect)
Thanks for the call about our mobile column lifts. As discussed, attached is some info I believe you’ll find important when distinguishing the Mohawk mobile lifts from others. Of the attachments;
PDF#1 Is a brochure on the mobile lift. Please note some of the options such as the 22” long rear forks to FULLY grab BOTH rear tires, the automotive side to side adaptor, the tandem columns that do the work of 2 columns on the rear, slope indicator, weight gauge or the fact that the front to rear bumper adaptor & fork lift adaptors are rated high enough to raise an F-450 or a 20,000 lb. (10 ton capacity) fork lift. Others offer these options but not at a capacity able to lift an F-450 or mid-sized fork truck when necessary. (These facts are all shown on www.autolift.org in the directory of certified lifts).
PDF#2 Is a brief head to head comparison of the most popular mobile lifts. If you don’t want to rear the full brochure, these pictures tell a good story.
PDF#3 Is a mobile lift fork comparison. If an engineer at Mack truck designed his trucks to travel; on the road on 4 tires in the rear, we believe the truck should be lifted by all 4 tires and not just the outer 2 tires (Which then likely get overpressurized).
PDF#4 is a lift safety sheet. The first ½ of page 1 is verbatim from the ALI website. The other pics are of various Mohawk ALI certified options.
PDF#5 is a weight gauge. This ALI certified option is your way of SEEING that your tech has lowered the lift onto the mechanical locks (Grandpa said “never use a jack without a jack stand”). The weight gauge can show an axle is overloaded, or that a fire truck isn’t properly balanced from left to right side (leading to a rollover when racing to a fire).
PDF#6 Are Mohawk ALI certified low, mid and high reach jack-stands. One set of columns and one set of jack stands means your shop will have 2 vehicles in the air being serviced.
Last PDF#7 is a cut-away to show the inner construction & workings of a Mohawk mobile lift.
We look forward to answering your questions & serving all your lift needs. Please call me with any questions.
