Re: Where do yall stand on this?

Yes it's very nice and convenient. A must in any DIY'ers garage. I unbolt the nearest column and roll it out the way when finished. Pump is mounted on wall with hydraulic lines running overhead.

Re: Where do yall stand on this?

Agree a lift is nice but all missed the most important thing: space. The same amount of garage space as living space is about right. All of the cars in my sig reside indoors with climate control and have a seperate workspace for power equipment.

Did take a few years to get here but was always my goal. Is just a matter of importance. Don't have a swimming pool.

(wooden planks were for the RV & lift pipe protection, it had a wide track. Took a while to find a 7,000 lb lift. Max Jack is nice but 6,000 lb max & not as portable)

ps a true gearhead can afford someone else but wouldn't trust them.
a true gearhead doesn't know how many tools they have
a true gearhead buys two every time they need one
a true gearhead ...

Re: Where do yall stand on this?

Nice scissor lift! I was going to get one of those also cause I couldn't justify the typical stationary two post lift and the space it took up. The good thing about the Max Jax is once you are done you can unbolt the columns from the floor, unhook the hydraulic lines and roll them out of the way. Now I have the space savings of a scissor lift, but the ability to work on things directly under the car such as the drive shaft, transmission, differential, exhause ect.

Oh, the 6000lb was plenty for me since none of my car's exceed it.

Here is how is how I have my pump:

Re: Where do yall stand on this?

To add to what other have stated. A good garage cabinet set help keep the garage looking tidy, also a good wall mounted garage vac. I have the Hoover one and I wonder how I lived without it. I don't know if you have cold winters but a good garage heater and garage door insulation is a must.

Re: Where do yall stand on this?

Nice thing about the scissors lift is that it can handle everything from a 94.5" wb Crossie to a 148" WB 21 foot RV. With 34" between the ramps, dropping a Muncie is NP.

I considered a four post but was out because the most common thing I do is pull tires and two posts require anchoring. With the scissors lift I can add the rollers & move it to a different bay. Only note was I needed a heavy rubber pad about 1/4" thick under one end to keep it from moving on the polished floor.

ps the astute reader will notice that it is marked 3000kg (6600 lbs). For US market it was spec'd at 7,000 lbs Was enough for my 6300 lb RV. Unlike some it has dual pistons and mechanical locks.
