2-post lift, symmetric arms, 9000 lbs min,**FOUND**
Decided it's time for one.
Budget is $1,300-$1,600.
Should be enough for a low end new one, or a used lift of a more name brand.
Must be a minimum of 9,000 lbs capacity.
Must have overhead equalizer thingy (I have 16' ceilings). Also I'm going to be rolling stuff between the posts and don't want to deal with a floor plate.
Arms must be the symmetrical type. I may need to back a vehicle in on occasion.
So far the local dealers (I've found) have only had the more name brand hoists, while nice, it's just not affordable right now. I'm not running a shop either. If anyone knows of a dealer in SE Michigan (or Flint area in particular), lemme know and I'll give them a call.
If any of you are looking to sell one, or know someone selling one, send me a PM.
I have a 18' trailer and can pick up. Shed has 220 available. Floor is 4" thick, unknown psi, built in the 60's, floor has no cracks down the middle slab (which is 13' wide and 60' long) so I can hopefully assume it's higher grade stuff, might even be thicker than the side slabs.
