OK- here we go... Finally. The steel paletting unbolted and the unpacking took a bit. The goodies were all in good shape- micro switches, controls, hoses and cables all looked fine. A buddy appeared exactly when I was trying to attach a come-along onto a pole to stand it up. We just worked together and stood them up. No way I could have done it by myself.

Here are 3 pics of 1.5 hours work this afternoon. Volunteer work tonight, hoist install tomorrow. Traveling for 5 days...

It's that Rustoleum 2 part epoxy for commercial/industrial use. I think the labels are all mixed up though because it is water based and the residential use product is 2 part water based. They did market an oil based 2 part but I couldn't find it in white. I already scratched it when I dropped one of the floor lift arms and it skidded across the floor a couple of feet. Oh well.

Do you really have this same lift? I've got miles of wiring and 4 micro-switches that the instructions are a little shy of in instructions. Didi you install yours?

I'll try to get as much done on it today as the next week is toast. ttyl, Jim

OK- here we go! 10 slab bolts later with the drilling all done and the hoist posts are permanently installed. The measurements took a while to get perfect and the legs were a bit heavy to shim drag around by myself. The hardest part was installing the post extensions- heavy.

My slab was 9 to 11 inches thick under the hoist legs and I hit rebar at a depth of 3 3/4 inches drilling into the slab on two adjacent cement bolts. The anchors were tight to pound in and sinched up just fine.

So forgive the ignorance, here, but how is that supposed to work? I mean, it seems like the vehicle would just teeter back and forth on the two arms. How is it balanced?

there are a total of four arms, two arms per side. they are if used correctly, just like any tool, very safe.
