car lift

finally got my lift installed.







it still needs to be leveled between the platforms, so I am not going too high up to show here.
But it goes up 198 cm.

Thanks for the update and I notice that it's not outside on the pads. I'll pick working inside on a clean floor any day.

Hopefully you won't be posting back asking how to patch a car shaped hole in your garage's ceiling.

Looks good.
Nice to see it doesn't consume all your floor space like some of the other units I've seen.

My son already booked two cars.
I have two oil filters to change in two of mine also.
Next weekend, TG?

I have 49 inches clearance for our RX300 and much more than that for Camry. Reason I bought this particular one, as I could have mid rise one for a 3rd of cost, is that eventually, I may decide to build a shop outside. This is very easy to move, just undo anchors and use engine hoist to roll around. Y'all know, horse power, torque, and lift clearance is never enough.

Just dont do like a friend of mine. He bought a four post lift and while winching it into place he tripped over a cable and broke his arm. Enjoy

I am. So far, it is a nightmare. They had one of fuses installed backwards - yes, turns out it can be done - and lift will go only up, not down. Fixed.
Then, one of the piston's axle yoke broke. Replaced.
Then, one platform started going up slower than the other. Basically, spent entire day yesterday leveling it.
Got to the point when they both go up - or down - more or less level. Without car on it.
With car - pass side paltform goes up level till maybe 20 inches, then starts racing and tilting the car.
At this point, I have very expensive and pretty much useless obstacle in my garage. Of course, THEY "do not have service that far West" and I am on my own. Talked to folks at Garage Journal, consensus is - air trapped somewhere. CAN'T BLEED IT ANY BETTER.
