Shopping for a two post
« on: January 07 2020, 01:01:38 PM »
Hey fellas, looking for some solid advice on a lift. Been researching and seems to be a lot of knock offs.  Looking for quality and reliability. 


Anyone have anything good or bad to say about about rotary?

Greg smith equipment sells a ton of this stuff, but they are state side.
Likely an import unit but appears to be chain instead of cable. https://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-9KOHX

There has to be a large equipment dealer in the GTA.

There are some low ceiling lifts that cost more as well if you canít get the ceiling high enough. Like this: https://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-9KBP-Baseplate-9-000-lbs.-Capacity-2-Post-Lift

Make sure you plan your heat and garage door opener setups to clear. Might want to look into a roll up door or slider for the limited space you have.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Thanks fellas!


Steve, donít you have a 4 post?  Did you pick up and install it yourself? I am hoping to purchase the lift and install. I have the wiring in place.

Yes, I bought a four poster as I wanted to use it for storage.  I have been threatening to get a two poster as well as they are so useful for many things.  Two post units are really good for engine swaps where you can drop the front cross member out the bottom.

An installer and a helper came down and put it together for me.  Apparently a lot of shops buy from Derek Weaver because they had installed quite a few the prior week.  I forget what they charged for the installed but it was not bad.

Mine is a very rugged lift.  I have had no complaints other than it is slow going up.  I used a 110 volt motor.  I don't know if a 220v unit would have been any faster.
