If you’re looking for a lift, the MaxJax two-post auto lift looks like an economical and space-saving option. It can lift 6,000 pounds up to 45” in the air in about 30 seconds using regular household voltage of 110 or 120 volts — and when you’re finished with it, you can store the MaxJax in a space a little larger than a standard tool chest.
You install permanent anchors into your shop floor; then when you’re ready to use the lift, roll the wheeled posts into place and attach the four arms and the pump unit.
The MaxJax seems like a bargain at about $2,200 — it should be available in March 2009.
