Re: {Chrysler 300} Lift advice



I too have a Bendpak, an HD9XW. I use the lift mainly for storage so opted to not upgrade my power to 220 for a quicker rise. When I do use it for service I don’t find the additional seconds to raise it to be a concern but if I were planning new construction, I’d ensure I had 220 service and an air line near where the pump sits. Pump can be mounted on the end or side of the stanchion. I bought the casters so I can reposition the lift but have yet to do so after 3 years. 

I measured my space very carefully and even made an accurate scale drawing of my garage, the three lifts I was considering, and the vehicles (including a vintage boat on trailer) that I would need to maneuver around it. I was then able to see how the lifts fit in the space and how well my vehicles fit in the space. 

I didn’t opt for the sliding lift jacks to raise a vehicle off the platform for wheel or suspension service work but plan to build my own as the heavy duty rails are present on the inside of the runners and all I really need is a strong and safe platform to place hydraulic jacks. 

Hope this helps.

There are dozens of lifts on the market and even more opinions of which is best. 98% are built in China and of these many brands use the same lift and decal them accordingly. I did a lot of research on these before I bought two Bendpak HD9W. These are 4 post drive-on lifts that require compressed air to disengage the locks, which I prefer to a lever. The HD9W are extra wide and one of the ramps is adjustable so you can narrow or widen the track. There is a sliding center member provided to use a bottle jack if desired. 
 
The HD9W does not have to be bolted to the ground. You can install casters and move it around if you wish. Available in 120/240 volt motors. 
 
As long as you buy a lift with an ALI/ETL certification you should focus on price and features. No lift is completely safe. They demand the operator knows what he is doing and carefully scanning the car, lift and surrounding area as it is lowered or raised. Never tell your brother-in-law to “go get the car down – I’ll be right out.”

Another vote for Advantage Lifts. These are the old Backyard Buddy lifts as the company sold a few years ago. I have three of them, one Buddy and two Advantage). American made, high quality and the best safety system on the market. Zero problems and have had the first one for 15 years, and it gets a lot of use.

My Advantage lifts are the same design as the Wildfire lifts. I liked the full square posts with sleeves that go all the way around. Very stable and don't need to be bolted down to the floor.

4 Post Car Lifts | Safest, Highest Quality On The Market | Four Post

Re-Engineered and Re-Designed With You In Mind To Be The Safest, Highest Quality 4 Post Car Lift On The Market, ...
 
 
I assembled it by myself with just a cherry picker and some cheap car skates to move the heavy stuff. One bit of advice is that you'll need a longer rental truck than you think you will. Quality seems pretty good and I like their design of the locking devices over the others I looked at. 
 
The only thing that I don't like is the heavy steel ramps, but that's only because steel seems to be getting heavier every year. They really aren't that bad. 
 
Hope this helps.

I want to purchase a lift, and would appreciate advice. 
 
While my preference would be an asymmetric chassis lift for maximum accessibility, I also want to use the lift for car storage. 
 
So, I think that means a “drive on lift”, with accessories to allow wheel removal etc. 
 
Any recommendations?  
 
I have no restrictions as this will be new construction.
