Hi all,

I am looking for a new lift for my garage, what would you suggest, the drive up ramp type, like the kwiklift, or a scissor type lift?

Thanks,

Eric

You need to take a good, hard look at what you want it to do for you, how much headroom you have for installation and structural adequacy of the floor.

Wheels & tires, fluid service only? Scissor.

General mechanical work? Twin post.

Fluids service, alignment, additional parking? 4-post with jack bridge.

I plan on doing a mix of fluid changes, and general mechanical work, don't think I want the expense of a twin post, was debating between a kwiklift and a scissor. What is the down side of the scissor?

All depends on height you have, area you have, what you want / need it for, and how much you want to spend. I have a QuikLift and it works great. I got the additional centerlift bridge and the casters.

Lack of access to the transmission area of the car, creeper movement limitations and loss of clear floor area.
