    Iv got a HAPP 35 2 post hoist

     

    will laft 4T up to 1.8M heights and cost me $2100 delivered

     

    was great till the day it spat a litre  of hydrolic oil on the ground from a ram, took the Rams out and got them both rebuilt, $450 later and it’s great again

     

    can not complain, except the week it was out of action and cost me $450, I certinly complained that week

    My garage roof is 3000mm high. I’ve found a few hoists that are around 2850mm overall height and 1900mm lifting height.

    Not sure if that will be too high.

    1900mm is perfect height to work under a car

     

    I lifted my garage roof to 3M height to fit my hoist in it

    Unless you get a $4000+  good brand hoist you can be pretty sure anything under $3000 is goin to be Chinese and probley using very similar Rams and electric hydrolic motor

     

    for $2000 any of them are great value even if you are unlucky like me and blow a seal witch is just unlucky and honestly my hoist has coped a proper flogging and done its fer share of work before that seal went so I really was not surprised when it did go

    I’d be worried that the roof of the car could hit the garage roof if I’m not paying attention.

    Whats involved in getting a garge/shed built big enough for hoists and stuff. How expensive is it and are the local councils a problem?

    I’m in VIC

    Nar that doesnt happen

     

    y roof is actually 3100 mm

     

    i can can go full height and not it

     

    at first I was was always conscious but then I measured and realised it can not hit it, Iv got a niko mark on my hoist so  I only just get above my last safety latch and is about 80mm from full height and still got about 130mm clearance

     

    Iv had mates freak out when I’m lifting it and start the yelling out to me to stop lol

    An ex mate of mine used to use my Hoist all the time, I didn’t know at the time but he was raising it fully and leaving the car’s weight on the rams as the last safety catch was too low for him…

    Of course it blew a seal.. Tufflift were good and replaced it free of charge even though it was out of warranty and I explained what had happened..

    With mine if I have the car pointed with the rear at the roller door end its real close to hitting touching the wing at full height.  I scored one of those cheapy domed mirror things, and mounted it up so when I am at the lift controls and raising the car I can see across exactly how the close the roller door is to touching the wing.

    Mine runs a lot of stuff over the top so the floor is flat, it has a safety cutout bar with a micro switch, I’m guessing it’s for Vans or double decker buses or something, nothing I’ve owned comes close..

    Well unless you are on good terms with the neighbours you will need a permit as you do with any permanent structure. Been that you would also need a 3m plus high shed would also need planning permits and need to comply with set backs from boundaries.

    Before you get any grand ideas of simply building a shed the local council love to use satellite images to check on people building without permits. Not to mention if installing a hoist you would want reinforced pads where hoist is sitting as would be some decent point loads on the slab i would think. I had to reinforce a slab just for a rollar dyno
