2 Post Car Lift
About the Overhead 2 Post Car Lift and Baseplate 2 Post Car LiftThere are two basic models to consider, a Baseplate 2 Post Car Lift or an Overhead 2 Post Lift. Both of these car lift models must be anchored into the concrete floor for proper stability.When shopping for a 2-Post Lift you first need to measure the ceiling height of your garage to determine whether or not you have enough height to install this automotive equipment.Most customers with adequate ceiling height would opt for the Overhead Two Post Lift because the overhead beam between the two columns provides slightly more stability. Auto Shops must also consider the amount of clearance you have in your garage. If you have a low ceiling clearance (normally under 11'5″), your best option for an above ground model.Overhead 2 Post Car Lift vs. Baseplate 2 Post Car LiftThe Two Post Baseplate model uses either super symmetric arm configuration or symmetric arm configuration to raise and lower the vehicle. The cover plate is located on the ground between the two columns and protects the equalization cables and hydraulic hose lines that go between the two columns. Although the steel cover plate sits very low to the ground, there is still a slight raised obstruction between the two columns that may be problematic when rolling a transmission jack or oil drain under the full length of the raised vehicle.A Two Post Overhead Car Lift has a bar located between the top of each column through which the equalization cables and hydraulic hoses are routed. Because the hose and equalization cables are routed through this top support bar, the concrete garage floor between the two columns is free from obstruction. A flat garage floor makes it much easier to roll equipment between the columns and position under the raised vehicle. Overhead Lifts may be used with either symmetric arm configurations or asymmetric arm configurations or super symmetric arm configuration.The bottom line is that a 10,000 lb. capacity Overhead 2 Post Auto Lift offers better stability than a 10,000 lbs. Baseplate Two Post Lift design because the overhead bar between the vertical columns provides support to the top of both columns when the car is being raised or lowered.As the vehicle (located between the two columns) is being raised or lowered, a lot of pressure is being transmitted to the (embedded) anchor bolts located on the back (or outside) of the vertical columns’ mounting plates. The Overhead design transmits some of the pressure from the weight of the lifted vehicle from these anchor bolts to the bar between the columns as the vehicle is being raised.Atlas® Certified Apex-10 Overhead Post LiftWhat is The Difference Between Symmetric Arms and Asymmetric Arms On a Post Lift?Choosing the Right 2 Post Car LiftAn Overhead 2-Post Lift design provides greater stability. The bar across the top helps add rigidity to the columns when lifting a vehicle.If you want to work on a vehicle like a one-ton diesel dually with a load of pea gravel in the rear end we recommend the Atlas PV-10P.If you operate a professional service shop with employees or own a pole barn and allow your neighbors and friends to operate your equipment, we recommend you buy a little larger capacity 2 post lift.We encourage you to call the professionals at Greg Smith Equipment to help you make the best decision when purchasing a 2-Post Car Lift. We have sold tens of thousands of two post lifts in the last 33 years and can help answer any of your questions.Your local state, municipality, or building zoning agency may have its own unique set of construction requirements, seismic requirements, and other electrical/installation requirements that relate to automotive service equipment. Issuance of a local building/occupancy permit may require approval from some branch of government jurisdiction. Please contact your local building department for a complete list of applicable fees or requirements related to installing and/or operating any of our products (including lifts, tire changers, wheel balancers, etc.). It is the customer’s responsibility to check with local requirements prior to purchase and/or installation.
