Another vote for advantage. Very happy with it.
Happiness is having Chevelles, Novas, and Mustangs in the garage, and a wife that is OK with it all!

I've said this before but the Titan lift my son won at MCACN years ago has performed perfectly. It was 2016 when we got it. We are not heavy users but also have not had any issues with it. Mostly used for storage with some wrenching. We assembled it ourselves.

We bought a Tuxedo FP8K-DX last year. There were not many manufacturers with lifts available at the time due to supply chain issues, so kinda just took what we could get. Paid $4700 for it including tax, delivery and setup by a local lift company.

We've had no issues with it, I've been happy with it. I wish it was about a grand cheaper, but that's the current supply chain for you. The casters worked well for moving it the one time I had to.

I considered a Bendpak as another option, but it was going to end up being at least another $800, plus I'd have to pick up at freight terminal/set up myself, and it required 240V. I didn't have a 240V plug in the area I wanted to put this lift.

I have 2 Atlas Lifts. I have had zero issues and Im glad I bought them in 2018 as they were $2500 each delivered to my door. I set them up myself with help of one friend. Second one went together in about 3 hours. First one took all day but we learned from our mistakes on the second one. It did help that I had a skidsteer with forks

I was surprised to see they have gone up quite a bit since then. $4999 delivered.

Default Tuxedo 4 Post Lifts

I have 9 of the Tuxedo FP8K-DX-XLT storage lifts and love them. I bought most of them in the last 24 months and assembled them myself with one other person. They are made in China as are most other lifts except maybe Backyard Buddy. The Tuxedo brand is not ALI certified but their Launch and Ideal brands are ALI certified. I also bought a 2 post lift and paint booth from them. Their support has been excellent and the 4 post storage lifts have 2 locks on each side of the crossbar where it meets the post. I chose the taller storage lift because I can fit a CarCapsule bubble underneath.

Growing old is a certainty, growing up isn't

I have a BackYard Buddy, had it for close to 20 years, never had a problem with it. I do use it just for storage so it probably only goes up and down a couple times a month
