car lifts

Don't know if this is the right section or not. Any one have a car lift, what kind or type do you have.

Rotary is my favorite of the 35 lifts at the dealership.

I have a Direct Lift. It is made by Rotary. It is a 2-post asymmetrical. I wouldn't work on a car without one personally.

Bend Pak 4-post, won't be without one again. At the time I got it, it was one
of a very few that had ALI/ETF certification and that was very important to me.

First time I have seen the EZ Lift and after looking at the website I am impressed. I have limited space and this would fit my needs.

I have been looking at either a two post or a scissor lift. Titan 6000 MRL, It has a lift height of 60"and it is portable. This is it http://www.freeshipequip.com/p/151/t...r-lift-6000-lb.

I'm not sure if I have the room for the two post lift. I have the height, 10'6 or 11' to the floor joists.

2 post lift Atlas BP 8000 and I can get it local to me. http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-BP8000.

I don't know. Maybe I'll find used one on CL.
