BL-5000EXT portable car lift system
Why did we develop the BL-5000EXT? Simple: the BL-5000SLX has a limiting lift point reach of 60″. That works for most vehicles, but there are vehicles whose manufacturer-recommended lift points are just an inch or two out of reach. That sounds like a small difference, but professional shops and smart DIY’ers know never to take chances with an off-balance load.
The BL-5000EXT has a 66″ lift point reach that’s long enough for virtually every consumer vehicle type out there (with the exception of certain electric vehicles, for which we offer the BL-6000XLT). Many auto detailing and repair shops can’t fit a full-size car lift in their space, and there hasn’t been an industry response to meet these needs. We heard the community’s call and immediately went to work perfecting the EXT series. It’s our pleasure to introduce the world’s first professional-grade home car lift. Of course, commercial garages will get just as much use out of it.

Setup for the BL-5000EXT car lift is the same as it is for any other SLX model. You still get 5,000 lbs. of lift, auto-locking safety bars, 30-second rise and one-touch button controls. Because we stretched our EXT models an extra 6″ to accommodate some late-model cars, the overall frame length is also slightly longer. So, if you’re into Smart Cars or other super-short wheelbase vehicles, be sure to measure first—these frames are probably too long. For vehicles with jack points that are a little closer together, we recommend the BL-5000SLX. However, the EXT will often accommodate shorter vehicles too. We ask that you measure your wheelbase(s), re-measure, and then measure again. Better safe than sorry.
EXTENDED-LENGTH car lift design
The BL-5000EXT portable car lift has been redesigned to accommodate vehicles with longer wheelbases. We’ve increased the overall frame length and lift point spread by 6″. As a result, the minimum lift point spread is now 6″ longer, as well. Our new portable car lift design better accommodates longer wheelbases and/or extended lift point spreads.
SLX minimum lift point spread: 80 cm
EXT minimum lift point spread: 94 cm
SLX maximum lift point spread: 152,4 cm
EXT maximum lift point spread: 167,6 cm
SLX overall frame length: 177,8 cm
EXT overall frame length: 193 cm (5000EXT model only)
