This is a common question. There are not many sizes of Kenco pads however purchasing the wrong size can be frustrating. The fool proof way to assure you purchase the correct pads is the measure the existing pads (or pad angles). The images of each pad size can be found in the online store as well as here to help guide you to the correct size. They cannot be cut down in size as the bolt patterns are specific to each size.
The warranty language can be found (in full) at the back of your Operator’s Manual.
The cylinder is a specially charged cylinder and therefore should only be purchased through Kenco. Step by Step instructions for removing and replacing this cylinder are available for download here.
Although most states have a standard size wall, you cannot guarantee that every project will use it. That being said, you’ll need to locate the spec sheet or get a visual of the wall that will be used. The measurements you will need are the length of the wall, the width of the top of the wall and the weight of the wall.
Crosscheck these measurements with the following:
KL9K6t12V4 – 0′ to 16′ length wall | 6″ to 12″ top width | 0 to 9,000 lbs
KL12K6t12V4 – 16′ to 20′ length wall | 6″ to 12″ top width | 0 to 12,000 lbs (Note: The KL120000 lifter will pick up anything the KL9000 can, plus a bit more.)
KL16K6t12V4 – 20′ to 30′ length wall | 6″ to 12″ top width | 0 to 16,000 lbs (Note: The KL160000 lifter will pick up anything the KL12000 can, plus a bit more.)
Lifters will ship via freight (on a pallet, class 070) and replacement parts such as pads or actuators will ship ground service. The price for shipping is calculated based on the item’s weight, dimensions and final destination. It is not included in the price of the lifter and will be calculated at checkout or while placing your order on the phone. Freight estimates can be calculated easily using your destination zip code; feel free to email or call us for this information.
