Two post lift


Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

It looks like I'm finally getting a real shop (YIPPEEE) and I may be able to satisfy my dream of a two post lift (asymmetrical, clear floor).

This is purely non-commercial, so I really don't want to spend the money something that will withstand 100 cycles/day X 5 days/week x 50 weeks/year, but nor do I want to purchase a death trap.

Does anyone have suggestions for lifts under $1500 (or so)??

Thanks mucho!

i only have a recommendation

for getting a lift. i called a few

local lift service shops and asked

if they had any used lifts. most

did have at least two choices.

and the average installed price

was $800. i now have an old

hoffman lift, which appears to

be almost new.

try this way and you may get

a great deal.

good luck

a friend has one he picked up a few weeks ago and it's too big for his

(or my) garage. I'm thinking it would probably be unfeasible to ship. South Louisiana, Don

If you know what you're getting into, that is...

Otherwise, you're going to need more $$$.


without quite enough ceiling clearance for one.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
