Saw a very cool looking Snap-On phneumatic car lift in someone's photo galley here recently. (Portable Scissor-type on wheels). Didn't appear to lift more than perhaps 3 or 4 feet but enough for my needs. Car in gallery was LMB C6 Coupe.
Wondering if anyone else owns one for maintenance, cleaning, and/or wrenching? Also wondering how stable???
Type? model? I can't find on SnapOn's site.

Thanks C6FIRSTVETTE. This place is great. Hey I appreciate you chiming-in with the great info and pics. You have one sweet garage setup (and two awesome whips) there Bro. I'd be scared to drop or spill something on that clean perfect floor. Kudos!
Did you have to pony-up the $4 Bills for your SnapON or were you able to find a discount somewhere? (Rep, website, etc)
Bud....very informative post esp the link you furnished.
