5 threaded anchors are inserted into to the slab, for each post. You draw up a bolt in each anchor to expand them into the 7/8 inch holes drilled in the slab, like a Rivnut. The lift posts are just bolted to the slab anchors, and the lift is rated for 6,000 pounds capacity. Most Commercial shop lifts are similarily just bolted to floor anchors. The bars you see on them across the floor or the top, are just for running cables or hydrolic lines. As shown on the Youtube, you can unbolt the posts and store the whole lift aside. I just leave it up, and keep the race car parked there, or up on it.
THX. This is great. I am ordering one today.

Reviving the thread. Anyone have a good procedure for getting all four wheels off the ground and the car on stands? A lift is not an option.

Disclaimer: I don't own an Evora YET

but these are good to elevate a car to get a jack underneath cenet front or center back. Then place jackstands at four corner jack points

Amazon.com: Race Ramps RR-56 56" Race Ramp: Automotive Amazon.com: Race Ramps RR-56 56" Race Ramp: Automotive




BTW...I'm in tupelo....do you got to ATL for Lotus dealer services??

Thanks

George

No place to put jacks underneath the center of the Evora that I'm aware of. At least none without removing the trays under the car.

I have not used these before but looks like they would accomplish what you seek to do.

Squidward posted that these would not work due to their size I believe. And at $600 to get the car all off the ground, it's a bit expensive.

Seems to me there would be something out there that would allow you to get all the wheels off the ground for $200-$250.
