    What model BendPak is that exactly? And round about what was the install cost? Did BendPak help you find the installer. Thanks

      av8ndoc it’s a HD-9, on the Bendpak website there is a page that helps you locate an installer. Make sure you inspect the lift when it’s delivered because they often ship scratched units.

    Pretty sure this doesn't meet their installation requirements of 3' clearance all the way around it.

      Allen Cunningham Interesting they’ve actually seen this video and photos of the installation and didn’t say anything.

    By any chance, do you live in the DMV and did SGS install your lift?

    Bendpak says to use a forklift or crane to position the cross tubes into position. That's simply ridiculous. I'm planning on installing mine by laying the posts down and sliding the cross tubes in just like you did.

    Great video. Recently had a garage build with 10' walls with this in mind. What did you coat your garage floor with? Thx.

      Craig Olson I bought an epoxy paint for garage floors at Home Depot, I didn't put the color chips in it though

    Hello GiuseppeM: Did I see that you used a 110v outlet for power? The spec shows 220 so I was wondering how you powered it. Thanks....

    • Todd B

      Great, thanks for the info. The drywall in my new garage was hung today so I am getting close to ordering. i went ahead and ran 220 before drywall started about 9 feet up so that i could swing power overhead and not have to worry about cords. Appreciate you posting this video.

      Todd B hello, they sell 2 motors, 120V and 220V, the 220V is a little faster but I'm happy with 120, is fast enough.

    What's your recommend ceiling height if you want to get a 4 post lift that can fit one car on top and obviously one car below (let's say a normal sedan and a sports car on top) ?
    And is the high raise garage door motors required?
    Thanks in advance, love the video.

      HKMediaChicago 9.5' would be the minimum height which is what I have. For a large sedan underneath I would say 10' is required.

    • GiuseppeM

      HKMediaChicago I'm not sure, I have 11' ceilings and the high rise motors but if you go on the BendPak website there should be a page that can help you

    obviously, it doesn't work since you didn't lift the car in the end.

      Wacky Ninja no it's free standing and can roll on casters, or you can bolt it down

    do you anchor it in place? or it seems very safe without the anchors in the floor? I am looking to get one of these but don't want to drill in the concrete

    • GiuseppeM
      GiuseppeM 2 years ago

      Power Jack Repair it's not anchored and it's not required, I bought the casters so I can move it if needed

    Nice. Had a couple of questions if you dont mind.
    1) How long did it take altogether?
    2) Although the likelihood is small, how easy is it to somewhat disassemble it to move to like the side of your garage, if need be?

      guys I bought one too and I had them drop it at shipping center. I rented a 26' uhaul and 4 buddies and I moved it into my garage. If you do not have a engine hoist at all it will take atleast 4 guys.

    • GiuseppeM

      +otm646 yes Bendpak either ships straight to them or to the closest hub and the installer picks it up (they had a rolling bed to unload it on my driveway)

    • otm646
      otm646 2 years ago

      Did you have the install guys take care of transportation to your location?

    • GiuseppeM
      GiuseppeM 2 years ago

      +John Lai oh no that's a full job to take it apart, also like I said you couldn't lift the runways

    • John Lai
      John Lai 2 years ago

      Hi Giuseppe. Sorry, let me clarify.
      I believe the casters let you move it around in the current rectangular form only, right? My question was more around, if you had to move all the four posts and ramp against the wall, could you do that easily?
      How much did installation run?
      Thanks!
