I was just wondering ? Are you sure you want a 4 post and not a 2 post ? Some are better at certain jobs then others.I would think for brake jobs the 4 post would not be near as nice as you still have to jack it up and then work around the lift ramps.2 posts seem more popular. I don't have much first hand knowledge about them though. I wish I'd of made my building high enough in one spot to put one in.

Pretty much committed to 4 post because I need to store a car on it and park another beneath it as well as do mechanical work. Planning on a rolling jack to lift front or rear end of cars. Probably will want 9000lbs capacity lift because of wanting to ocasionally lift my F250 for oil changes, etc

Bill,
I have two Mohawk 2 post lifts that I use in a commercial auto & truck repair shop. They are now about 15-20 years old. One cylinder leaked at 3 years and was replaced at no charge by company, I think they are 12,000 lifts, and are h.d. compared to other lifts on the market. They are made in Canada and cylinders are guaranteed for life. You can have one car on lift and park one under it, Brian

Thanks for all the advice.. Now I've got to talk with my equipment dealer (here in Eastern NC) and see what we can get and what the cost is. He says he can beat on-line and has very reasonable installation charge for equipment he sells..Gave me the specs and location for wiring. Still looking at 4 post with sliding jack for tire and brakes. All I expect to do w/lift is storage, tire changes, brake work and fluid changes. Got 4 inch slab, so 2 post would be hard to do unless we added thickness in area of posts.
Looking hard at Bend-Pak HD9

Hello.. we have a Bend Pak 14000 # on the farm for 4 yrs. We love it. You can put wide frt TRACTORS on this set up too. The sliding air over/hyd. jack to raise some thing is some thing up is one thing that makes life easy! Also got the steel plate for the rear.....I use a couple of hyd. jacks for that . Good luck!

I have a 2 post. Just use it on the ranch. My floor is 4 inches thick, and I lift Dodge 1 tons all the time with it. Never had any problems. I think we paid just over $400 for it, used, and I installed it, twice. Boss wanted it 1 place, and I the other. It is now where I wanted it. The only thing I don't like about it, is for exhaust work, the 4 post keeps the suspension in its "normal" place, where the 2 post allows them to fall.
Right now I have a #22 Case loader hanging from mine.
