Hey all, I have decided to sell my two post lift. I used this in my garage for a while and it works awesome. I've got a shop with more room now and have decided to go with a full size lift. The lift is Maxjax by Danmar which is one of the best manufacturers of automotive lifts and it is in like new condition.

The advantage of this lift is it works in 8' and higher ceilings and its portable so you can get it out of the way. Here is the ad posted on Craigs list: http://billings.craigslist.org/tls/3244200954.html

Thanks!
Scott

I saw this on Craigslist. How does it mount to the floor? Eye hooks or something to hold it down when you are using it?

Flush anchors recessed in the concrete and then you run bolts through the column base into the anchors. When the lift is gone there is nothing sticking out of the floor. Does that make sense?? Lol

Do you know what specifications are required for the concrete? I have read that for full-sized lifts the concrete has to be minimum thickness, etc. I am not sure what I have, but I can find out as the builder lives next door.

The minimum requirements are 2500-3000 PSI 4" thick concrete. This is consistant with typical residential garage floors.

The lift comes with the recommended anchors, bolts and shims. Here are the specs.

Thanks for the info, I will look into this. I do not have the ceiling height for a standard lift, so something like this would suit me perfectly. I was told I needed 6" concrete for a standard lift, which is beyond most garage floors that weren't specifically built for a shop. I will talk to my neighbor who built my home and see if he knows the specs on my floor.

Does it feel stable/sturdy when you are under there yanking with a big prybar?

Yes it does. I was tentative at first, but I had never used a lift before.

Any interest in a trade for a 84 VW Rabbit GTI?

Almost done installing the lift. Made some serious modifications to make it more practical. 5 more holes and things are going to get elevated. Smile

I wanna see this thing in action some time. Cause it's not "if" but "when" I'll have one.

Just got the lift installed. What a pain in the ass drilling those holes with a standard hammer drill. Rotary drill is definitely the way to go. Wish I had one, but the installation is done and tomorrow we will get some stuff elevated.
