Default portable car lift ?

I was just browsing and saw this lift. Anyone heard of it or know anything about it? I am limited by low ceilings in my garage. It looks like this is might fit plus I can wheel it out to my drive and work outside on it to get the full height. Not sure what kind of lifts workhorse makes and what the locking mechanism is like.

I checked out the maxjax but don't like the limited lifting height. This seems like possibly a good alternative especially since it is truly mobile instead of just store able like the maxjax. Just concerned about only it being a one post instead of 2.

No one have any information on these? I've done some searching but can't find out much. Did find a single post lift made just a few miles from where I live but it appears to need to be permanently mounted to the concrete.

Greetings Milo, I don't know anything about the lift you reference, but if ceiling height is your fundamental constraint you can get a four post lift for about a thousand bucks less. I have a Direct Lift Pro Park 8S, and the posts are under 7' tall. It fits in a small (10'x21' external dimensions) garage with space to walk around one side if the other is against the wall. I put off getting the lift for a long time because I didn't think it would work, but it's been great.

I thought about one but I have a lot of equipment and tools that need to share the space and I want more access to under the car for working. Being able to use the lift outside and get full height is another high plus. I found a distributer locally so it is cheaper with no delivery fees. Can not find anything positive our negative so will probably give one a try

I have a Bendpak 4 poster that I love. I have to move my lift periodically. I do need the extra lift height though. I would love to try a Workhorse like that.
