2 or 4 post lift and other related questions!
Looking to buy either a 4 post or 2 post lift in the near future for my 24 X 30 garage.
I have moved back and forth on whether to get a two post or four post? I want one to be able to work on brakes, do oil changes and maybe exhausts.
I’ve also thought of storage however have room for all 5 of my cars inside and no “plans” to buy another but you know how that goes….LOL!
I also would like either one delivered and installed. A lot of places say at delivery you need to have a forklift available……I don’t so that’s an issue.
I have 12 ft 4 inch ceiling peaks. I plan on working on mainly American passenger cars and maybe a couple medium duty trucks. I want to be able to walk under the car and am 6 ft 2 inches tall.
I like Mohawk 2 post lifts but they are way out of my price range!
Backyard Buddy 4 posts seem nice but not sure how much better that would be since I’d need to add on a sliding jack to do a lot of work. The fact that they’re movable is nice since d/t zoning I have smaller doors (12 ft and a 7 ft) on my 3 car that they required for me to build it.
I have looked at 2 & 4 post lifts: Bend Pack, Nussbaum lifts, Challenger lifts, Danmar, Advantage & Rotary lifts and I see one I like, read another post and I’m unsure again.
I have 6 month old 4 to 5 inch thick 4400 lb concrete floors with the poly fiber mixed in.
I have 110 and 220 volts ran to the garage.
I’d like to keep it at or under the $4,000.00 range since building the garage hit my wallet hard.
Thanks for any info,
