Pier-Tech 4 can withstand double the bending moments than the Pier-Tech3 and it has a 1600-pound lift capacity. The Pier-Tech 4 has a double pier arrangement that is operated thru one controller. Each pier gives feedback to the other to allow a simultaneous operation of both. To operate the Pier-Tech 4, just plug it into a standard 120V outlet and push the up or down button on the supplied hand held pendant to raise or lower both piers.
