Shop lift

Recommended Posts

Perform s Google search. Do a little research. You'll likely find a scam. Send them payment, you never see it, or hear from them again. Additionally, would you put your life on the line working under a $51 car lift like this?

Here is the real ad on Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/XK-USA-L1000-000LBS-Warranty/dp/B073GQGR9Y 

 

Don't know where your link is but probably a scammer copied info from there.

It's a real ad, but the price is in Nigerian dollars.

Later, after posting, it all occurred to me. Sometimes a bit dense!

funny, the estimated tax is the same as the cost....

 

Our sales taxes are going to end up as much as the item pretty soon because of the current situation going on.

Re: lifts,  were I younger and would keep wrenching, the first tool I would buy is a lift. If it would not fit in my garage or shop, I would find a place outside some where.

I’m a reasonably fit 71 but the older I get the more I would like a lift. Probably started about 4 years ago when I replaced all the steel brake lines on my ‘48 Dodge. Bought a 25’ roll of brake line and a double flare tool kit. Between going under the car to remove old, measure, check for fit, install, and get the one tool I really needed but forgot, I must have crawled under that car, on jack stands, at least 200 times. No exaggeration. 
 

I don’t have the height in my garage for a lift and no room for an addition. I had to replace a clutch last year. If I was younger, I would have crawled under and done it myself. Instead, I had my trusty mechanic do it. He has a  lift and I have the money. 😜

My lift is the best 400 bucks I`ve ever spent, I would be dead in the water without it.

7 or 8 years for my drive on lift. 
it has been my best investement to date. Started working out of my garage 6-1/2 years ago so it has paid for itself time and time again. 
 

i put collar ties in my rafters and built a very solid boxed in area above my lift. Having lift in shop during the process gave me the perfect work platform.  Full size van on my hoist right now,i can work under it without issue.

This lift once was in a shop on a steel plate floor, they used a torch to burn it free and in doing so left part of the floor plate still welded to each of the lift`s two posts. I chose to leave the extra steel in place as it gives a larger "footprint" to each post. The posts each have four very large Thunder-Bolts anchoring them to a concrete pad that was designed and poured to accept a two post lift.

thanks....was hard to see but I saw that plate in place...does provide added displacement....my 4 post lift that is going in IF my building ever gets here....they have way more bolts than your two post....maybe bordering on overkill...
