Default Quickjack 7000EXT portable lift

I finally pulled the trigger and bought a set of Quickjacks. I wanted the longer length for my old Galaxies and my pickup. The pickup is right at 5300lbs, so I opted for the 7000 in lieu of the 5000 series. It went together pretty easily and seems robust. I’m not worried about getting under the cars once the support arms are locked in place. I’ll update as I use them more. My garage is underneath the house and has 8’ ceilings, so options were obviously limited.

Doesn't seem bad at all considering the height restrictions... Is the left bay two cars deep? Cool shop!

For all of you considering these, the 5000 and 7000EXT (extended) are the way to go for stability and hitting the points you want. Unless you restore old Minis or Sprites they won’t be too long (that’s a 2018 Mazda 3 above). Even if you get a car that they’re somehow too long for, you could put them crosswise inside the wheels and pick it up that way (though you won’t be able to drop drivelines easily that way-But honestly with cars that small, it’s not like you’re wrestling Turbo 400’s out)

They’re a little more than 6’ tall/long when collapsed. Most store them vertically, I recommend just buying their wall hangers-they’re nice looking and do the job they were designed for. I have them set with most of the weight still on the floor, as recommended. I bought a hose hanger for the hydraulic lines to distribute the hang weight more evenly, and yesterday I built a rolling cart to house the pump and the collection of lift blocks and truck extensions I have for it.

How easy are they to lift and put on the wall?

With the roller wheels on the end, you wheelbarrow them around, carefully hoist it to vertical against the wall, then grab it on the sides and boost it over the hook. I'm not uncomfortable, but I'm glad they aren't any heavier. (I'm 51, just under 6' and 200lbs). They're portable, but you're not going to be looking for reasons to throw them in your truck by yourself.
