Default Replacing my car lift.

I have a very old Werther international 2 post screw car lift 1984. It is only rated for 4500 pounds. My Tahoe will not be going on it anytime soon. It broke down with my son’s car on the lift.
I had to buy some very tall jack stands to get it off the lift. Thankfully it was not the whole way lifted up.




I can get some parts but they are not cheap and the left screw is not in that great shape. It will not lift all my cars so I think I am just going to replace it.
I had to have it welded a while back and I think we are going to part ways.

I have been looking at used lifts for a while. Either they are not made any more and parts who knows? I don’t want to just buy someone issues.

This is a nicety so I can’t justify buying a great USA made lift.
I think I am going to pick up this APlusLift they have been selling motorcycle lifts since 2013.
I am going for the 10,000 pounds clear floor lift. My Tahoe is like 5,600 pounds so I won’t be stressing it which is good for a lift.
I am going to pick it up in Atlanta GA they will give a good discount for me doing this.
Do I really need a lift no but I will not be getting any younger and I don’t plan on others working on my cars until I can’t possibility do it hopefully a very long time away.
I will be doing a project car or truck in the future. Hey you only go around once.
I am excited the get it even more once I have installed it.

Doing research it looks like the factory has been making this lift scene 2014.
