It arrived almost 1-1/2 months ago and I've been so busy I hadn't been able to get it set up. No more creepie crawlers for me!!! I don't think I've been so excited over doing an oil change since my Dad let me do my first one almost 1/2 a century ago Wink Gotta get me one of them big A$$ funnels on a bucket though....

I cheated - shoved all the junk into the other bay before I took that pic. Had to dump my kid's stuff from school in there temporarily - soon as I get some sub-floor down in the loft that stuff goes up there and the machine tools get moved into that bay from the old shop - hopefully before T'giving. Here's what it REALLY looks like:

If I had a shop like that I WOULD have a oxy/sedline(sp) torch - AND a MIG welder (plus maybe a few more tractors) :-)

Looks good Dan.

I had one garage in the three houses I lived in from 1973 to 1999. In addition to the usual two new vehicles, at any given time during that period, I had an A model Ford, a 1940 Chevy pick-up & a 1965 Mustang. Now, I have 3 garages & a 3 bay pole barn.....and everyone of them looks like the other side of your shop. I am living proof that "stuff" will expand to fit the space available.

TOH finally gets it up "That's what she said" He He. On the oil drain, from the time I take the plug out till the wast oil truck sucks it out of my tank I never touch the oil. Look up "John Dow"
portable oil tank. I have a few and worth every penny. If need B I will shoot a few pix I spec a man could save a 100 are so make'n his own, its very simple. I have a few Ho-made tools/equipment I use with the lift that help save time and a mess, will send pix when i find time.

I spec I mite come up with a better price if I look around.

Thanks for clarifying the conditions of your shop ;-)

What's the make/model of the lift?

Colin the lift is a "generic" asymmetric 9K unit which I purchased from Greg Smith Equipment and simply carries their logo. The hydraulic powerpac is made in the USA but the maker's name escapes me at the moment. I'm quite pleased with the overall quality although the installation and setup guide leaves a lot to the imagination. Lots of detail on anchoring and that's about it. Actually it was quite simple to install - about 1/2 a day's work not counting running the electrical circuit.

Total cost delivered was about $1300 and the seller was incredibly helpful and quick - it arrived 2 days after I placed the order. They sell lots of lifts on eBay but I purchased direct. The opening eBay auction prices are HIGHER than their catalog price. They also carry an extensive selection of other auto shop equipment and I'll likely be a repeat customer. No affiliation - just a very happy camper.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the price. Still a big investment, but if a fellow is serious about doing his own work, it seems like a good investment.

Thanks for the info! I've recreationally looked around, but between not knowing what I wanted/needed, and not having the space (until this summer), I have not delved too far into it. Your recommendation carries a lot of weight, so I'll be filing this away for future study.

Thanks,
Colin

I would never want a big ugly thing like that in my garage. I've got a 3 ton Sears floor jack that does the same thing. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.......

Very nice shop - even the messy end is better than mine right now.
