I've seen those before and considered them. Would be pretty nifty for some things. However, the downside (for me) is I'd still be laying on my back on cold, hard, cement. For simple things like oil changes, it'd be pretty nice, although, I couldn't justify the cost just for that.

I wouldn't want it in my garage. I have 4 jacks, 4 small-short jack stands and 4 tall jack stands and wood. The jacks aren't all identical.
I can jack up vehicles in stages up high if needed.
Why do they have 6 sizes for? One lift system might be too big or too small depending on the vehicle? What are they like shoes or what?

That's a small minded statement.

If ur NOT doing UOA then you're throwing away good oil or your engine is already damaged. Choose.

Iíve had an EZCarlift since 2005. Best tool I ever bought. Itís been used on BMWs , Corvettes, numerous Mazdas etc. Made in USA. You can talk to the owner, leave a message on the website with your # and heíll call you personally. Boytcho Manev is his name. Real cool cat, serious car guy.

That is about what a used 2-post lift cost! From experience.....Just assume both cylinders need new seals! The old American made Ammco & Rotary lifts can last a lifetime!

If I had a level/flat driveway, I'd consider it but I can't help but think that thing would easily sink into the asphalt with the weight of a vehicle on top of it? shrug

Amazing... that Chicom stuff should have been priced at 10% of the US made analogue, right? Oh well, I could give them 15% since I am in such festive mood right now. Short minded are the folks that pass on the goods made by their neighbours and then wonder why the neighbourhood is going bad.

Some new ones only go for $1400, but I don't know about the quality of it. Used ones might be even cheaper, check your local craigslist.
