Default Scissor lift

I don't have enough height in my garage for a 2 or 4 post lift,only an 8' ceiling.

Found this at local Costco store yesterday, a hydraulic scissor lift, 21" lift 7000Lb capacity.
For $1,449.99 Canadian, also on line for $50 more.

Also seen a 5000 LB one on Costco.com for $999.00US
I figure with a little ingenuity I could make an extra stand to put it on & get my Nomad to the ceiling. After lifting & putting on jack stands then using the stands to lift again.
Not as nice as a lift, but better than nothing.

Never heard much good on those. Don't go up any higher than a $100 floor jack and with two separate units you get issues with them going up at the same time as well as side loading which can cause them to roll. Not good if it happens. Save another $500-$800 and get a real scissor lift that goes up to 60".

good to know, thanks for the input.
I was also looking at a 2 Post lift for $1,900 Canadian. It has a max lift of 45" and only needs 7'5" to work 6000 Lb capacity, also portable.

although it is $240.00 to have it shipped to me & I would need to reinforce the floor, (but that is something I have the tools to do myself).

probably a better option in the end for working on my Nomad.

I went with one of these. I also have an 8í ceiling, so Iíve thought about fabricating a stop so I donít accidentally lift it too high.

Itís a bendpak md-6xp. It is very heavy so I donít really consider it portable. Goes up pretty fast on 110v. Great for working on brakes or polishing wheels or waxing the sides of the car. Not good for transmission type work. Can have ground clearance problems with a low car driving over it. It works well for how I use it.

A floor jack that lifts 24" used under the front cross member & differential
will get the frame rails about 30" off the ground. Use 8 ton jack stands to keep it there = clear floor under the car. I use an old buffing pad on the jack pad & carpet taped to the jack stand saddles.

Also have a Gray (manufacture)) pneumatic similar to the one in the link it will locate on the frame horns behind the bumper.
