Lifts
 
We are looking to add a lift here in our shop so that we can play with our own toys. What is a good electric lift to buy that is the best bang for the buck?

GTAHVIT 12-08-2011 01:04 PM

wow... Loaded question... ;)


can you help us out?

how much ceiling clearance do you have?

Are you looking to use it for storage and maintenance? or just maintenance?

do you need to be able to do major work like transmission R/R?

give us some more data and we'll be able to get you on the right track.

but, typically the most versatile lifts are 4 posts and are pretty cost effective.

I just built a garage and had a BendPak 2 post 10k lb lift installed. Garage was built to accommodate the lift. Ceiling is 12' 4" high.

I have a Direct-Lift Pro-lift 9 Plus being installed at the end of the month and I cannot wait!

I can let you know my thoughts on that one in a few weeks.

Great garage! Bendpack is a good lift, with the 10k capacity ought to be plenty safe. Bendpack is about the most bang for the buck before stepping up to a rotory or further yet a Mohawk.
Post up some more pics of your shop.

I would be intrested in you thoughts about the lift, my garage is on hold due to weather and this is the lift that I was looking at.

Sorry about being on hold. I will be sure to do a write-up when it is installed.

BRAVO! :clap:

How many lifts do you want?

:laugh:

I'd go for the two post and be done with it. :headbang:

Probably just one? We can then do our own mods easier, take care of company vehicles as well.

I bought a Rotary 14K 4 post with 2 hunter swing jacks for $2500 on Craigslist.

I've seen these, they make me nervous but they make sense.
