|SEFAC3005||I bought the 5000 Lb version for $1000 free shipping from COSTCO in J.an 2019 You have to do a little assembly and there are many company videos very detailed. Here is something you may not know you can get a version powered by 12Volts great for the track.. 120V and I am almost certain 220V. Works great and somewhat easy to move around.|

Understand having to also use a floor jack defeats the purpose somewhat but I use the Quickjack to get the car in position for projects over the winter and tend to leave it up for several months. So it's not like I am constantly raising and lowering it. If you are only going to use it on a Spider, I would get the 3500 version. But if you need the 5000 for another car, it can also be made to work for a Spider.

For the DIYers among us:

A friend just bought one of these lifts:
and I really like it. The arms adjust to make it smaller or longer depending on the car. And you can raise the car high enough to sit under it comfortably. He looked at the Quick Jacks and decided that this was better, even if it cost more.
It was super handy when pulling the transaxle out of our Milano. Lots of room to work on removing bolts, then we lowered it drop the transaxle on a tranmission jack.

Quick (Jack) update on this... The 5000SLX model I ordered took about a week to arrive via FedEx ground. Shipping costs were all included in the base price, as advertised. FedEx dropped the 3 large boxes on my front steps. Delivery was also a concern of mine with other lift options since my garage is around back. A lot of the others require lift gate service (with a hefty added fee) and the trucks don't like to do down the alley, where I would need it dropped. With the Quick Jack delivery, the only complications were 10 inches of fresh snow and a few beers at happy hour... My wife and daughter looked on in mock horror as I lugged the ramp boxes (109 lbs each) and motor (35 lbs) through the house and down to the basement. Really, wasn't that bad...
Unpacking, setup and testing took about 3 hours. The directions were pretty straightforward and everything was supplied (including teflon tape) except the 2 quarts of ATF needed. The quick-connect fittings used to connect the longer hoses to the power unit and short hoses are pretty slick and there were no leaks.
I didn't test it on the Spider but was able to achieve liftoff with the Giulia TI last night. The 60" max lifting spread just barely covers the jack points so I had to reposition the jacks a few times, to get them in just the right spot. Should get easier with repetition.
The height is not much but plenty for the work I plan to do and more so than with my jack stands. And all at the touch of a button... Will begin to use actually use it for suspension and other projects when I get back from vacation and can file a follow up report then. Should also be handy for winter tire changeovers on our "real' cars.
Apologies for the crappy cell phone photos but I was pressed for time... Let me know if any questions.
