Home Hoist recomendations

Can anyone give me some input here. A friend got an Eagle Lift and it is not very good. I am thinking a BendPak or a Rotary Lift.

Any input would be welcome, new or used I am looking to spend about $2000-$3000

Thanks,

Aaron

Hey Aaron,
I've don't have any experience buying a lift (yet), you may want to try and post the same question in the off topic forum (broader audience that have been down this road).

Not sure if you tried the search feature yet but here are a couple of old posts regarding the same subject.

At home Car Lift info sought..

FWIW when I worked for TRW Automotive they used Rotary lifts in their workshops. To be really professional you almost need two; a two-post and a four-post with the optional chassis lift things.

When did you work for TRW? I've got some friends that have worked up there on and off for the past 4 years.
