Landon II Another pluss for the four post is it will work with standard four inch floors. If I do two post I will have to have two pads poured.

hondamxer I use both 2 and 4 post lifts every day in school and i prefer the 2 post. While working under vehicles on a 4 post you are constantly ducking under the two side rails that you drive the car on to so you dont hit your head. Also the middle jack doesnt go up all too high, but high enough i spouse. When under a vehicle on a two post it just feels easier to run around for tools and what not. These were Bend Pak lifts. Both are plenty safe, so thats not an issue. and the weight capacity for the 2 post Bend Pak is 9000 pounds, but you can get one up to 15000

Anyway anybody ever put a lift on a vehicle while using a four post lift? I have seen ones with a jack that rolls in-between the rails of the lift. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with one.
I have a 4 poster for the same issue, just prefer the safety of not having to fasten the legs and having the safety latches

1jeeplvr I got a quote for a Mohawk lift that fits in a 10' ceiling,mine are about 12'.Then you would be able to lift the vehicle all the way up.I thought the quote was high so I decided to wait for now.I want to have someone come in & do my floors first.

Landon II Do you remember the brand of the lift?

Big Sarge I've never used one to install a lift on a vehicle but I've used the ones with the pneumatic jack that rolls on the rails of the lift and I love them. If I ever get around to building my log house that is exactly what I will have installed.
