The AmeriGlide Hercules II DC 750 Residential Vertical Lift is the ideal vertical platform lift for outdoor or indoor applications. Great for porches, decks, and garages too! The non-skid epoxy coated floor and galvanized steel panel is weather-resistant, even in the harshest conditions.

750-pound weight capacity is standard on the Hercules II DC, which is great for lifting large wheelchairs and two people at one time.

The acme screw direct drive makes the Hercules II DC the smoothest and quietest lift on the market. Being battery powered, the lift and its automatic self-lowering folding ramp (standard) will even work during a power outage.

Safety features include under platform obstruction detection, emergency stop switch, anti-skid floor surface, emergency alarm, and much more.

Our vertical platform lifts are all relatively simple to self-install, but if you wish to speak with one of our experts about installation options, please give us a call. We're happy to help!

A Little About Myself

DIY Home Owner

Pros

The packaging is excellent. All pieces were very well protected in the wooden shipping crate. Each metal panel individually wrapped and protected. The screws and parts for each part of the installation are in individual plastic bags and well labeled. Five stars for the packaging design. The unit is very sturdy, well designed, and constructed. It is very stable once installed.

Cons

The paper instructions that ship with the unit are missing steps and is out of order. Ameriglide needs to update their paper instructions to add the missing steps and reorder the installation sequence.

Service & Delivery

Delivery was about 2 weeks after order. I payed for lift gate service and they were able to place the crate in my driveway with out too much issue. The crate is very large so unless you have a fork lift it's easier to uncrate in a driveway and then move the unit to it's installation site.
This was a DIY installation. Installers who do many of these installations understand the issues with the installation manual and other tricks. These comments are for other DIYs who will install the lift themselves. Watch the installation video and follow their order, not the paper manual's order. The paper manual is missing steps and has you install parts in an incorrect sequence. I ordered a quick ship A/C unit. I decided on the A/C unit because it is installed in an unheated garage, is never used unattended, and I did not want to have to replace the batteries every couple of years. When moving the unit around laying down horizontally we slide the unit from the shipping pallet onto two moving dollies which worked very well for positioning the unit to get it ready to lift vertically. In the installation video, which features a DC unit, two men seem to easily stand the unit up from the shipping pallet. The batteries are removed from that unit. The A/C unit has a very heavy transformer mounted on the shelf where the batteries would go. This makes the unit extremely top heavy and probably heavier than the DC unit. Because of the transformer, it was not possible for two strong men to lift this vertically. We even tried four people but it was just not safe. I considered unbolting and removing the transformer, but the cabling was all tied down and I did not want to mess with this and then I would have to remount the heavy transformer while the lift was vertical. Ultimately I rented a material handler, which is basically a manually cranked cable fork lift. With this device and a car towing strap we were able to safely stand the unit vertically. Once vertical, it can slide on a cement floor but again it's so top heavy it takes a couple of people to do this. Final positioning can be done with a crow bar as seen in the installation video. Get the unit as close to the final destination as possible before you start assembly while it is lighter. I decided to use 5/8" cement wedges for the rear four mounts. Just a little extra holding power to the concrete slab. However you have to drill out the metal bracket slightly to get these to go through. It is not necessary to bend the arms on the contact switches for the safety pan as printed in the manual. I believe Ameriglide updated the contact switches and they are now mounted on a sliding bracket. Just loosen the screw and adjust the bracket to get the proper position. If the unit goes up but not down, check the cabling on the safety pan contact switches. A couple of these connectors came loose a few times. If just one switch is disconnected the unit will not move down. the first time this happened, it took me a while to figure out what the issue was.
AmeriGlide replies:
Very glad to hear you got it installed. We are working to rewrite our instructions as well as provide better videos for those doing DIY installations. I am sorry that process was not as seamless as it should have been.
