Atlas® ATLMA Lawn Mower Adapter for 2-Post Auto Lifts
The Atlas® LMA (lawn mower adapter) will transform most two post above ground lifts into an easy to use lawn mower lift, golf car lift, snowmobile lift, ATV lift, or a small sports car lift.
The Atlas® LMA adapts easily to most two post above ground lifts that are equipped with a symmetric arm design. The LMA is adjustable in width to accommodate the many different arm configurations found on two post lifts. The Atlas® LMA can be used in an infinite amount of wheel base configurations (between 32" and 90") to allow the operator great flexibility in lifting different pieces of lawn service equipment with varying wheelbases.
Most of the specialty lawn mower lifts and golf cart lifts are just variations of the economical automobile lift. Golf course maintenance equipment distributors are demanding artificially high prices for specialty above ground lifts that are just subtle adaptations of the very affordable two post above ground car lifts.
When properly installed, the Atlas® LMA can transform most two post above ground lifts into an economical four wheel support lift that will accommodate wheel bases from 32" to 90". The Atlas® LMA plates can be positioned ONLY on two post lift arms that offer symmetric arm configuration.
The Atlas® LMA is designed to work well with most two post above ground lifts with symmetric arms. There are many factors that will determine the SAFE weight capacity of the Atlas® LMA on YOUR lift.
We recommend that the lift operator DEDUCT 3,000 LB. lifting capacity of the above ground lift when the two LMA plates are spaced at the furthest wheelbase position (90"). When the LMA plates are positioned at the closest wheel base position (32"), then the weight capacity of the above ground lift with the attached LMA should be DECREASED by 2,000 LB.
If you are using an 8,000 LB. two post lift, and you have the wheelbase dimensions set at 32", then the NEW lifting capacity of the lift would be 6,000 LB. If you position the LMA plates so that the wheelbase is 90", then the NEW lifting capacity would be 5,000 LB.
If you are lifting a mower (or other vehicle) that is extremely heavy on one end, then the operator should position the LMA plate supporting the "heavy" end closer to the vertical column and extend the opposite LMA plate (supporting the "lighter" end) further out on the lift arm to accommodate the necessary wheelbase.
