EZ Car Lift On Sale
Posted by: Freeman ()
Date: November 21, 2017 05:49PM

In case anyone has been thinking about getting an EZ Car Lift, they are on sale right now at $1845 shipped to the lower 48. That's a $500 savings over the price last Friday.

Got mine ordered this morning.

Andrew, that is interesting but I don't see that it provides any advantage over the EZ lift when working on Corvairs. The cross bars on the Auto Lift block access to 30% or more of the underside of the vehicle when using a creeper.

I love my EZCarLift! Solid and American made! And the company owner Boytcho Manev is a really nice guy and owns a Corvair or two!

I have had one for several years. Works great. Had a small problem with it this year. Boytcho stepped in to get it working again at no cost to me...and made sure it was right. If you are a strictly "made in America" guy who values customer service, cannot go wrong with this company.

A great tool to have in your garage.
A friend of mine has the Quickjack and wishes he had my EZ Car Lift instead. He tells me he read the comparison Quickjack put out between EZ and Quick and some of the claims they made are just not correct. Dealing with hydraulic hoses, needing power close by, lower lift height capacity, no side access under vehicle and made in China he says is not worth the Quick's cheaper price. He borrowed my EZ to do a side by side.

The Quick is a fairly good unit, but I'm happy with my EZ. I have used it for quite a few years.

Keep in mind that regardless the price... You may have more $$ invested in hand tools. Your back will thank you... and most car lifts can be easily sold later on for nearly the same price they were paid for. Not a bad investment!

Ok... I'm stepping off of my soap box!eye rolling smileygrinning smiley

I looked at the Quickjack. I would be afraid to get under the car with it. It's not very stable and is really made for wheel/tire changes only, not made for doing work under the car on it despite that they later started marketing it for that.

Thanks Dave for your post, it actually highlighted some things I had not thought of between the two products. And as for the lift posted above, I have not seen it readily available in the states(it is from europe). Also I have seen it used in europe and it did not inspire me to take my life into my own hands.

I think I am going to end up with an easy lift? I guess my only hiccup at the moment is I have 4 different project cars I will need to measure. How hard is it to make your own cross braces?

Contact Boytcho of EZ Car Lift. He will set you up. I believe he can furnish the braces for multiple width vehicles that will fit the main lifting frame.

Does anybody happen to have the lift point measurements for Early Model Corvair (and if they are not all the same, specifically for Convertible)? EZ lift wants Front width, rear width, and length between front and rear.

I ask because I am not entirely certain which lifting points to measure.

If I am using the jacking pads as shown in the owner's manual I come up with:
Front Width: 45-48"??
Rear Width: 45"?
Length: 65" ??


For Convertible Curb Height I have 52" and for vehicle gross weight I have 2650 - correct?

The EZ will fit your jack points on the EM Corvair. I did my entire restoration on mine after the body came off the rotisserie and back from the body shop.

I actually put mine at the furthest extent of the lift (the pads slide fore and aft on the lift) and used hockey pucks to get it up off the lift platform a little more.

As for the bar widths, EZ sells them in different widths. I can't recall the width but the Corvair width fits most any typical car. For my Triumph TR6 and Lotus Elise I had to have narrower bars, the cost about $100 a pair.

Contact Boytcho at EZ, he is very helpful and as I said above he owns Corvairs so he definitely knows the sizes needed and lift points.

Best to just call Boytcho directly and let him help to determine your needs. As others have mentioned, he is very pleasant to speak with and eager to help. It never end dawned on me that this would also be useful for things like rotating the tires or changing the oil on the wife's Altima until I spoke with Boytcho.

BTW - I placed my order on Monday and Fedex tracking says it will be here on Saturday. Great price and fast shipping.

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!

Plus - Designed and built in the USA! At the fan belt toss, a few years ago, they announced an EZ-Car lift as the big raffle prize for the banquet. All during the swap meet, I suggested people buy a ticket or several, I told folks how much I liked the one I bought after the Ventura Convention. (I have used it a lot.) Well, the banquet came - and they pulled my ticket! I won the lift. Uh - I found a local Corsa member who needed it, one is enough. Something not mentioned, so far, is the portability. With less than a dozen bolts, the units disassembles into four reasonable to wrestle parts. It will fit in the back of my Avalanche. Best to use on a hard, level surface. I am quite happy with mine. The EZ-Car Lift, plus an ATV lift makes dropping out a powertrain very easy and safe.

Thank whomever for YouTube. I almost plunked down the juice for this lift and realized what a piece of shit it was for the money. I'll wait until I can get a hydro.

What a joke watching buyer's spin that corded drill,forever.
I actually thought their lifts were broke because of the lack of movement while they spin the Chuck.

Supremely unimpressed.
