Don't buy from the Company that I bought from. I'm still trying to get money back from them on their shipping procedure. They drug my lift across the parking lot with a hi-low and damaged a few things.

Meh, you didn't drag your hoist across a parking lot with a fork truck and damage it, they did. If they were that concerned about not having the truth on the internet they would have made it right with you already. They haven't so everyone here should know not to do business with Best buy Auto.

Technically it was their shipping company,.......but there is a hole lot of he said, you said, we signed, you signed. The supplier will only ship through this company.


Long story short, they wouldn't unload it off the trailer, until I signed the receiver. Once it was signed, then they took it off the trailer and drug it across the parking lot.
I was told by them that because I signed the receiver, I didn't have claim against their actions,......................in which I sent them back video and digital pictures of them dragging my hoist across the parking lot.

..........no reply after that, it has been turned over to attourneys.

I used mine to do the brakes on my wifes car last night. It's so awesome to bring the wheel up to my lever, instead of having to stoop over to work on it.

I am actually finding reasons to work on my vehicles now.

Get a clear floor unit. Makes transmission removal easier.

Ditto. I just wired up my Rhino for street legal blinkers & it was awesome to put it at eye level while trying to route wires, zip tie them, etc. It's been a great investment.

I have been researching lifts so much my head is spinning. I am leaning towards a 10k symmetric Bendpak or a Danmar. Danmar is basically the same as Bendpak, only about $500 cheaper. Both are very beefy, even more so than a Rotary (and $1000 cheaper).
