Who doesn’t need more space in their garage? Whether it’s that extra car that sits outside, all your lawn care equipment, snowmobiles, or ATV’s, there never seems to be enough room for it all. With these four-post lifts from Dannmar you can recover that wasted space above your vehicles to store your stuff. Hell, you could even set up your shop on the lift and raise it out of the way when you need to park your vehicle — how sweet would that be?
The D-7 lift measures 105″ (8’9″) wide and 204″ (17′) long, so it should fit into a standard parking space, while the D-7X is wider at 117″ (9’9″). These 7′ tall lifts will raise stuff a little over 6′ in the air, so you need to make sure your vehicle fits underneath and factor in how tall your stuff is to make sure you have enough vertical space.
According to the information on Costco’s site you don’t need a special foundation to use the free-standing lift, but I can’t find any confirmation on Dannmar’s site. Either lift can hoist up to 7,000 pounds, and once it’s up, ten spring-loaded safety locks on each column makes sure it stays there. The standard 110V AC electric motor/hydraulic power system raises the lift in 45 to 60 seconds.
The D-7 lift starts at $1,700 and the D-7X starts at $1,900, which is a whole lot cheaper than adding on to your garage or building an outbuilding. You can even buy the D-7 from Costco.
