Has anybody used the QuickJack? With limited garage space they seem like they may be a suitable alternative to a 2 post that takes up a lot of room, plus they are portable...
That is one of my concerns, whether it would fit under my car. My floor jack barely fits under the chassis stiffener. With a full tank of gas, it won't. I like the scissor lift in that it gets the car off the ground more than 21" like the QuickJack. There are 2 post models that aren't a lot more than your scissor lift. I need to make a decision before tomorrow!I had a two post at the last shop, but the wife was asking for a pistol permit at our former home. A great three story Victorian that we restored lovingly. Too many gangs, drug deals, basically in the hood. Best car shop ever, room for 10 cars, two post and just a great shop. We left there in 2015 and went to the burbs.
I opened up another location and recently added one of these 6000 Lb. Capacity Scissor Lift.
Been up and running now for a few months and followed a thread on a Porsche forum where several guys recessed the lift into the floor. I did not go that route, my stock '85 spider has enough ground clearance and works just fine. Mucho better than the floor jack/jack stands
Big decision. I pondered a two post, but was not crazy about the floor space it took up. The HF scissors lift can be easily moved around the shop, but it does not raise the vehicle as high as 2 post.I can fit a 2 post in my garage. I may have to think on this a bit...
that scissor lift looks nice but for the price I would rather get a 2 post since I have the room. Like the QuickJack, I am not fond of the idea of having the lift in the way so much...Big decision.
