Who is selling these besides Clarks?

Anyone with experience on how well it works?

I did a comparison of lifts for the Communique last summer. Did you miss it?

Send my your email and I'll mail you a copy of the review. Basically, it's great for portability and small size, not as good as a regular lift for ease of use or service work. Price is the same as a full sized lift and you have to provide lifting motor (electric drill),

Having gone to the web site and taken a look, it is a neat product, which does have a purpose (use where ceiling clearances are low), but it is indeed too pricey. For that kind of money one could get a 2 post lift.

Also, while it may hold a Vair without problems, I do not know that I would be comfortable getting under it with my Olds on it!

I've had one in constant use for three years now. Wouldn't be without one. I have 8 foot ceilings in the shop and this works great. I have lifted everything from a Fiat Bianchina, all Corvairs, and up to a Ford F-150 pickemup. It was designed and manufactured by a Corvair guy who needed some type of lift to fix a dropped valve seat in his 140 hp---go figure ggggg. I have no qualms in highly recommending it.

I have been using mine since picking it up at the convention. It leaves you plenty of room at the front and rear for access to anything you want. I looked at all of the other (post) type lifts. My garage is too short to install one inside. The nice outside ones fail the "spouse approval" test. Our driveway, while not visible from the street, is very visible from the kitchen and back yard. The EZ Car lift can be rolled into the garage when not in use. It flips up for storage, and comes apart with a few bolts to transport. I passed along all the info to Shawn. If anyone has questions, I'd be happy to answer. My lift is busy right now, holding up a late Camaro for some spark-plug work (don't ask!)

And with that you get half the access from underneath, due to obstructions?

Why do you say that? Looking at the picture you can't tell and it says "full undercarriage accessible" - just curious if you know something else that it doesn't say on there?

I think the picture does tell you that anything between the support posts are a no go on the less expensive lift.

It appears that the EZ lift has good access to that area.

I want one, I just do not want to spend $1800 for it....

I would watch those guys-that John mentioned - I had AMericas Pride take me for $1800- otherwise I would have a lift right now- bought and paid or but never delivered-

The web site you linked to americanautmotive may be owned by the same poeple so check them out very carefully

I purchased a transmission jack from americanautomotive.com and it showed up promptly and was fine.

I don't think they are related to the AMericas Pride outfit that ripped you off, Scott. I googled the AMericas pride name and well, you are not alone. Take a look:

Ther Cheapies give you plenty of room underneath... especially on Vairs, Porsches, Aircooled Beetles...

The EZlift is portable.... important to old, outa shape hasbeens!! GGGGG

Well, fora while the web site and 800 number for Americas pride (the ones that riped me off) was redirected to the guys in texas - they denied any involvement, but I see that the texas website has their sales office in NY, too close to Americas Pride for me. Something funny going on- why take over the 800 numbner and web site of a crooked outfit ?

tboltkc:

I say that, based on a lot of things, including the picture. I investigated that scissor lift quite thoroughly when I was in the market. I have no doubt the undercarriage is clear. THE QUESTION IS: CAN YOU GET TO IT?

Look at the pic and tell me how you could roll on a creeper underneath the car, starting at the front, and going on to the back?

I am not saying this lift might have some useful functionality, but it seems pretty limited. It might be great for rotating tires and brake jobs, but I don't know that I would want to use to, for example, put on a new exhaust system?

I see your point, hadn't thought about that. But at 57" lift a creeper wouldn't do much good anyway - my arms aren't that long! GGGGG
