Most of you know that I am going to be in the market for a lift this spring, but I wanted to get it out there in case one jumps out for a great deal.

My father is looking to purchase a tire changer/balancer as well, he is tired of paying $50 per car, twice a year to swap tires on 4 cars, figures a decent used setup could pay it's self off in a couple years...Plus I would use it to boot...

Let me know what you guys hear of through the grapevine. I always have my eyes pealed on CL, but am looking for more of an "inside" deal...

Doug

I don't know anything about the tire changers, no clue what is a good deal on those, still researching that....

As far as the lift goes I am looking for a 7000 lbs or more 2 post lift. I am not picky to a brand or anything like that, but spending limit is $1200, and not in a huge hurry, so lower is nice too...then again I don't need it to fall on me either... just curious what's out there that people might know about.

There is a local guy with a 9K pounder, but it has been stored outside under a tarp for at least a year and I don't really like my odds with that.

I got my 9000 for 500bucks when the local dealership closed. Works good. You can buy a new one pretty reasonable. Cheap in this case is not really a good idea IMHO. You have a 4000pound car over your head, I don't compromise. Mine was used, but had just been completely serviced. Had to use a backhoe to stand it back up, i got it all aligned, mounted to the floor, works great. I'm alittle afraid to put my truck on it higher and 3 feet or so.

That's the kind of deal I'm looking for!

Ya that was pure luck, I got a 22,000 pound drive on for 600, we left it at the garage because we bought the dealership building when it went out of business, that thing is awesome!

Was it you who had a 3rd cousin's husband's best friend who might have a lift available?

It was a cop I had for a detail in one of the towns I work in. I don't remember his name and I think I just threw his email address away a couple weeks ago! I'll see if I have it in my address book in Outlook.








EDIT: Found it! I just emailed him. But it was way back in September when he was selling it. Don't get your hopes up.
