I feel a lot better under 4 post with the ramps and all but that's just me.
Most places now use epoxy to hold the studs in the floor. Mine are 5 inches deep.

I have a bend pak asym 12,000 lb. I've had no problems with it. Lifts my f-350 cc diesel with no problem. Even when I had the semi wheel kit on it! However when the fluid is cold in the winter its real slow. I used 3/4" x 7 wedge anchors on a 6" floor.

one of my favorites is a 12,000 in ground Rotary. its the strongest hoist in my opinion. we offset load the thing all the time and it has no issue. it has a drive on deck like you would see for an alinement rack so we can put wadded up vehicles on it. we also have a 8000# weaver in ground with a deck and its gets stuck with half the weight.
holy hell 200+ hoists, where do you work?

I've got a 12,000 lb Aresco unit I love. Triple extension asymetrical arms, crew longbed trucks are no problem. Plus Aresco is out of Pontiac, so local if I ever need service. Cost $3,000 installed. Chinese made, but very well built, durable, and stable. Excellent warranty too!

Thanks Scoot's.
Yes I work at Chrysler Proving Grounds...We test Fiat's also.
the two main shops are about 900' long and have hoists down both sides. the emissions shop and suspension labs must have another 50 +
my shop (impact) has 19 but there is a wide variety from the Joyce 16,000 side by sides to the crappy old weaver 8000. we have been puting in the new rotary in grounds and love them. we have two right now 12,000 & 9000. the majority of our older hoists are the narrower Globe side by side.
we also have two of the front/rear post 16,000lb rotary lifts. they work just like any other twin post but with all the modern safety up grades
