Re: Garage equipment

i bought a 10000 pound bendpak one from my local schucks auto parts store, they had them on sale. was about $3000 on sale including delivery and instalation. have to make sure where they are made at. if its chinese you might have trouble getting parts if you ever need them and often on those the hyd cylinders are welded so they can't be rebuilt if they leak. also i don't like the ones with the part at the bottom you have to drive or push a car over to get it onto lift. mine has the equalizing cables at the top. you will need a 10-12 foot ceiling to install the lift and get it up high enough to get under it to work on without crouching
