HAPP40: 4T 2 post clear floor, 1.9m lift, approved by WH&S – $3390



We still want this hoist to be an affordable hoist for customers who do not  require the WH&S kit, so we have split the cost of the HAPP40 – the purchase of the hoist and/or the WH&S kit.

The HAPP40 is a full featured two post clear floor lift with high lifting capacity and single point release mechanism. This enables you to raise and lower the lift from one location without extra steps to release. We also supply a two point release version (HAPP60).

For customers that have high vehicles our 600mm height extension kit enables you lift high vans / 4WDs with racks to the full 1900-2000+ mm lift height.  Our 300mm and 600mm extensions have been designed to Australian Standards and registered for workshop use. (The 300mm kits need to be pre ordered).

Our generation 2 arms allow for the greatest flexibility available out of an Australian Standards tested and certified arm. These arms are designed on computer in Queensland and made by robots to this design. This high technology allows our arms to be low profile yet exceed all Australian Standard stress and deflection tests. This is only possible with years of computer design matched with robot manufacturing.

happ padOur customers realise, there are certain advantages to both a screw in and drop in pad design. We created a design that offers dual stage screw up pad with a wide 50mm hole size base (for stability) with spacers as a standard inclusion on all our hoists, a drop in/screw in pad. The screw in pad allows for ease of adjustment and the drop in style allows you to add in spacers to reach those unusual contact points. It a multi levelled screw in the pad, giving you more height if required. The 2″ and 6″ spacers are included at no extra charge.

EVERY HAPP car lift design is tested in Queensland by Australian Professional engineers against Australian Standards using state of the art technology!!!! The multi coloured pictures on our lift specs are snippets from the engineers report that PROVES that we are doing this. We are the leaders in quality, if you do not see this drawing on your product, it is NOT tested to Australian Standards.  Our catalogue shows this picture on EVERY CAR LIFT.   BEWARE: Registration with WH&S in states other than Queensland does NOT mean this testing has been done, it merely registers a design.  If the registration doesn’t have an AS prefix it is not to Australian Standards!  Further information on our home page.

CE certifications ARE NOT recognised in Australia, the CE designs FAILED the structural analysis tests held in Australia by professional engineers. HAPP hoists have been designed to ABOVE Australian Standards the designs are unique to HAPP. Do not believe those who tell you otherwise, we have been supplying workshops and working with professional engineers for many years. Our technical people are qualified engineers and fabricators and our customer service is second to none.

The biggest change for our models are the arms – our new Gen2 arms are available on the HAPP40. These arms allow a wider variety of vehicles to be lifted with our hoists and make it easier to balance the vehicle from front to rear on the lift. To do this we have a front arm that has much shorter distance than our current short arms and a long arm that is able to extend to be much longer than our current longer arms. All of this extra flexibility, with arms that still fully pass Australian standards tests. Many HAPP40’s are in use with the standard arms using the 4 long arms so they can load the hoist from either end – from the next container onwards (mid May 2020), our happ40 comes standard with the 4 shorter arms allowing you to load vehicles from both directions as you always have and pull small cars back on the lift more easily.  If you prefer the short and long arm combination that’s fine just arrange for two long arms for your hoist. (note that with the long / short arm combination you will only load vehicles from one direction).

Our Gen2 shorter arms are shorter than the Gen1 short arms and extend to longer than the Gen1 long arms. The Gen2 long arms can be super long – whilst all passing Australian Standards!!!  This is only possible with years of computer design matched with robot manufacturing.

Standard arms: 3pc – 580mm-1140mm

Optional rear arms: 2pc – 890mm-1420mm

The HAPP 40 comes with 4 of the shorter arms  3pc (which are able to extend to longer than our Gen 1 long arms allowing you to load vehicles from either direction easily.
