Nice new toy!!! Congrats!

I guess the only downside is your height restriction. Other than that, full access under and around the car is great.

I opted for an electric over hydraulic, scissor lift. No wasted space on either side, I can park over it daily, low cost, and it's mobile. Only downside is I can't do RWD tranny removal and exhaust work can be tight but for 99% of the work I do it's does the job.

It don't waste space either, these are portable so i can put them aside when im not using them, heck it takes less room than my cherry picker. aren't scissor lift limited in height as well? i see some people need to run ramps/running boards to clear it

I thought it was permanently mounted and fully electric. Looks like it uses the same electric over hydraulic system as mine. I've been meaning to get a quick coupler built for mine.

Height-wise, I can get my wheels at least 6' off the ground and, like you, am limited to the ceiling in my garage. No issues with stock height cars but yeah, if it has a lip under 5", one needs to drive up on 2x4's to clear the front.

what was the cost before tax?


that looks pretty sweet, but it would be even better with a remote control or a controller with like a 15' or 20' cord so you can be right at the mount points as you raise it up

Yep, i had to burrow a hammer drill from home depot. Im redoing it again next weekend to move them closer.

Also modified it and will have hoses running over head so i don't trip over them and mounted the pump on the shaft itself.

I did some renovation on the weekend so the lift can now reach max height after moving the garage motor to the side. :w00t:

and to commemorate this i put it at max height with barely an inch to spare before the wind shield touches the garage door

Do you have to measure the depth of your concrete pad and the compressive strength of the concrete before installation?
