Now that the price has almost doubled from when I started looking a couple years ago, finally pulled the trigger on a lift. Love it.

After much analysis paralysis, I went with the Advantage 9K XTL lift. It doesn't have the cert's that Bendpack and a few others do, but after putting my hands on them, it was much beefier, had the secondary latch, didn't need air to clear latches, and the complete package and support won the day. I've been stalking them at our local Mecum auction for the last several years. My shop layout isn't final, so I needed to be able to move it around as my plan becomes clearer. Hope the pics work.

Not tall enough. 10' ceilings, wish I had 14' and I could get two stovebolts on/under it.

I have been investigating a lift. I only have 12: walls and don't know if that would be enough headroom. Thanks for the info, will keep looking. Bill

Here’s mine. Very affordable. I have 12’ walls. Fits very nicely. I hired a pro to install it and he gave it a thumbs up. Derek Weaver has two locations. Texas and NC.

Installed a 2 post lift on the unheated 15' wall side of my barn last summer. It has become an invaluable tool!!! Lot easier standing up working on vehicles versus laying on your back. Should have done this 40 years ago.
