About four years ago, we put in a 9,000 pound capacity twin post lift, with
custom extra low pick up arms. It's the greatest thing since sliced bread.
It is installed in our shop (vice in my residence garage), but we too had a
'power problem'. Our solution was to bring in the three phase power. I am
embarrassed to say that now I even put the car on the lift to polish it. Now
We selected the 9,000 lb capacity so we could put a pick up truck or fork
lift on it if we wanted to.
