Default Snap-On Phneumatic Car Lift (anyone?)

Howdy,

Saw a very cool looking Snap-On phneumatic car lift in someone's photo galley here recently. (Portable Scissor-type on wheels). Didn't appear to lift more than perhaps 3 or 4 feet but enough for my needs. Car in gallery was LMB C6 Coupe.

Wondering if anyone else owns one for maintenance, cleaning, and/or wrenching? Also wondering how stable???

Type? model? I can't find on SnapOn's site.

Thanks,
Reid

Default Thanks!

Appreciate the timely feedback guys. Got to admit I wasn't expecting $4 grand worth of lift. I know...... SnapOn makes a good product.

At the moment I'm wondering if that electric "umph" isn't what is driving the cost up that high.

On the other hand doesn't seem like that much steel-hardware in the frame design to drive costs that high.

Wondering if it comes pheumatic only(???)

Yo Vetteman22.....what is a bendpac? Please elaborate.

I think that be me...buying the lift was the BEST purchase I made in a long time (other than getting my Vette ) Use it all the time

Click the image to open in full size.

I show this pic because some of the lifts have a solid plate where the arms swing out...this will block access for areas directly under the car

Also if you have lowered your C6 (I have...just using the OEM adjusters so it is about 3/4" lower) or a low car to start with (Elise) you will need the boards to allow for clearance over the lift

That's a nice looking lift and I'm sure it's good quality. But at 1K lbs., your not going to be moving that sucker around alot!!!

Great pics C6Firstvette!, would love meet up with you sometime next spring when I get back, don't think we live too far apart. Jeff

Here's a link to Mohawk Lifts counterpart: http://www.mohawklifts.com/consumer/hr6.php

Mohawk is probably the best lift money can buy, bar none!

I presume this lift is Chinese goods with that price. Kinda scary that there is no brand mentioned. Gotta wonder about replacement parts.

Either way thanks for the info webdzynes.

It's not a Snap-On, but I have heard good things about Mohawk lifts.

BTW Michael,

I think I have told you this before, but Mr. Blue and the Elise make me drool... VERY NICE!

Default C6firstvette, Bud Gordon and all.......

Thanks C6FIRSTVETTE. This place is great. Hey I appreciate you chiming-in with the great info and pics. You have one sweet garage setup (and two awesome whips) there Bro. I'd be scared to drop or spill something on that clean perfect floor. Kudos!

Did you have to pony-up the $4 Bills for your SnapON or were you able to find a discount somewhere? (Rep, website, etc)

Bud....very informative post esp the link you furnished.

Thanks again
Reid in Houston

Does anyone have any experience with Directlift products? This one has a minimum height of 3 7/8" and seems reasonably priced.
