Default Car Lifts

I am getting ready to close on a new house next month and it has a huge garage. My goal is to install a 2 post lift. Does anyone have any experience about what brands are the best?

I am looking at Tiger and Bendpak. Tiger is $1,420 and Bendpak is $2,825. Both are 9,000lb lifts and Bendpak includes free shipping.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Me like . . . . , Mr. Wolfe.

I'm looking at Eagle. That was the brand of the lifts that were used in the shop I used to work at. The prices are reasonable.

Did you have to do something special to the floor?

It depends on the load specs of the lift. It is usually specified in the lifts' installation requirements.

Most poured concrete garage slabs meet the minimum requirement for the 10,000lb and under normal duty car lifts. Check with the manufacturer or a local installer for comfirmation.

My brother-in-law is the sales manager at Eagle. They have some lifts right now at closeout prices of $1000 for storage lifts.

Go to their website, and give him a call.
