Any recommendations on a 4 post lift? In the process of completing my new home shop and want to buy a lift. Like real world suggestions. Thanks Tom

I have an 8k Atlas from Greg Smith Equipment...zero issues in 10 years of service. I agree with TJS44...except get two jacks..one for each end.

My son won the Titan lift they gave away at MCACN in 2016 - it works great.

I have had a Bend Pak lift for years and it has been great and it is by far one of the better lifts at the lower price point. They came out to the house and installed it because the main distributor is local to Southern California.

I've had a Bendpak HD9-XW lift for about 5 years. It is the best garage tool I've ever purchased and it has had zero issues. I also bought the RJ-45 jack which I highly recommend as it makes the drive on lift more useful for wheel/brake work.

Bend pak....bought it because ramps are adjustable width and I can walk under it when fully extended and that's no easy task. It has a bigger footprint than most but well worth it

I have a Backyard Buddy and one of the cheap 2000.00 lifts. They both do the same thing. The Backyard Buddy was over 4K but is probably built better. If you are not using it for commercial work, any of the cheap ones are probably fine. Be sure to get the 500.00 sliding jack.

I do know the legs on mine over short periods used to move a few inches when they werent secured to the concrete.And I quickly secured it with anchors. Im not sold at all on putting a full size 2500 ram pickup on a 7000 lb[or 9K for that matter] lift thats got the tires 7 feet of the ground and not secured into the concrete,even though the company wants you to believe its portable.
