four post lift

I've been looking at 4 post lifts for my shop and find that there are plenty to choose from. They seem to fall into 2 styles. One style uses square tubing for the vertical posts and the other uses a formed channel.

Anyone have any experience with these so-called home/hobbyist lifts? I'm looking at a 9000lb rating so I can lift my bigger trucks at least while they're in the cab and chassis stage.

It really depends on what kind of work you plan on doing. With the four post, the ramps seem to
be in the way. If working on the suspension, you still have to jack the vehicle up. But for body work, they are great, no more bending over.
