How thick is the concrete floor and what kind of bolts did you use to lag it down?

The floor is a "nominal" 4 inches thick (4000 PSI) with wire mesh reinforcement but typically runs an inch or more over that. Since the lift was part of the original shop design I turned the slab down an additional 4" in the lift area (16'L x 4'W). That area also has 3 runs of #5 rebar embedded in it in addition to the wire mesh.

The actual lift specifications call out a minimum of 4" of 3000 PSI with steel or fiberglass mesh reinforcement.

The lift came with pre-engineered anchor bolts. Each 13.5x18 baseplate is secured with five 3/4" x 6" anchor bolts hand tightened to 130 lb-ft.

That pickup weighs roughly 3800 empty and aside from rotational movement in the lift arms (they are a sliding fit inside the columns) its steady as a rock. No discernible sway or flex in the columns when rocking the truck from the rear bumper.

The anchor bolts were very similar to these:

Wedge Anchors

I just paid $22.00 each to get the oil changed in each of my vehicles. At that price I won't live long enuf to justify me buying anything like that. If you using it fer a living, it is ok, but not for just convenience of doing yer own oil changes, from my point of view.

After the fist install the next will B only a few hours at the most. 160 on the torque sounds high, mine are 60. Keep a check on the bolts they will need re torqued every now and again.

Humm I thought a asymmetric ment the lift columns were turned in and it had short arms on the front long on the back. It really don't matter for a home shop but when its you job the one with the turned in columns sure save time and labor. When I first looked at the pix I said to my self he installed the lift control on the wrong side then seen when its on the right it mite save a few steps. Every thing i own I have made gizmos to lift them with on my lifts, never tried a tractor tho. When working under a hood on a small car I raise it so the fenders will fit my belly, when work'n on trucks i raise it remove the front tires lower and set the lower control arms on blocks so the fenders will fit my belly, Sure saves the back. Keep a look out for some work tables to use while under the lift. I will search for a pix when i git back a little later on.

I didn't buy it just for changing oil Laughing I do just about all of the maintainence on my 3 vehicles plus the ocassional job for my three kids. I'm tired of laying on my back with no room to work and grease and grime raining in my face. A cutting torch or angle grinder spewing forth 18" from your nose is just no fun!! At $1300 it will pay for itself in a matter of a couple years as far as I'm concerned. Last shop job I paid for because I didn't want the aggravation of doing it on my back (transmission R&R) wound up being $1000 labor.

It is asymmetric - front arms are short and bent inwards - rear are longer and straight. Debated which side to hang the power unit - chose the offside simply to give me more clearance on the side wall. When I get a chance I'll move those cabinets along the back wall to the sidewall and put the tool cabinets along the backwall.
