It looks very similar to my lift.

https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f101...st-lift-50966/

Might be the same thing sold under a different name. Mine was a bit more but came with two sliding jacks so I coud take tires on and off. Very important and generally at least $350 each.
The most important thing in my decision was safety. Since mine is not bolted down (actually, even if it was) I wanted a fool proof way that it could not come down accidentally. The Direct lift is very safe.

My car both sucks and blows.




Now with added all natural smoky goodness!

looks like greg smith has some good deals if you're able to pickup in the indy area.

Here's a couple of links: Storage/Service Lifts: car lifts, auto lifts, automotive lifts - Eagle Equipment

I've seen others for slightly higher prices that even included the sliding jacks...

tim's looks better and cheaper, and they've got some discount code going on, don't know how much it changes it but it said E072208 is the code, think you have to use the telephonic device though.

The fact it includes shipping makes it a decent deal.

I recently purchase the propark 8 for a similar price and paid $495 for deliver and set up.

I found some more information on Dannmar from their website...

Looks like a pretty good company with some nice looking lifts and other stuff.

dannmar is a better lift

I know Dannmar uses and SPX power unit that is designed exclusively for BendPak and is good up to 9000 lb. The one on greg smith is a china power unit. Also the Dannmar uses aircraft cables rated at 14000 lb. I don't know what the propark offers. I love my D7. For the money, I think it is the safest hobby lift out there.

I guess the power unit was not exclusively for BendPak since Dannmar is using it. You get the point though, reliable power unit

Someone stated that they use an SPX power unit (made in U.S.), this is true, and is the top of the line power unit.
No matter what lift you are looking at make sure it has the SPX power unit.
