About 4 Post Lift

When trying to do work underneath a car or truck, a struggle with having enough room to move around is inevitable. For this reason, professionals and serious hobbyists employ a 4-post lift to make the process comfortable. These lifts function by somehow gripping the bottom of the car, or they are designed to have the car rest on tracks. Either way, hefty hydraulic systems then raise the car to varying heights. These electric motors ensure that the vehicle can be lifted safely and easily. Some models are designed specifically for short ceilings, and the mechanic can then sit or lay underneath the car with plenty of clearance to work. The most popular iterations, such as the Rotary 12,000 pound lift, are designed to raise the car or truck to a height where work can be performed while standing. Of course, those are meant for shops with high ceilings. A lift with this kind of capacity allows the mechanic to take on heavier vehicles. On eBay, you can find a wide selection of 4-post lifts, whether you are a professional or a hobbyist.
