    There really is nothing to worry about a hydraulic lift. All lifts that are sold in Australia have to meet very high safety standards. In all my years iv never seen a ram fail or a weld fail on a hoist. Iv seen concrete cracking and dynamic bolts failing on a two post but thatís about it.

    For sure. All the issues that I've heard of have been with the el cheapo chinese home type copies and the actual issue is leakage past the internal ram seals. This can happen with the best hydraulics with normal wear and the design of the home type ones allows one side to subside over time. As said, if you're up for 6-8 weeks, you wouldn't really want to use any home type lift without some mechanical locking device. Caveat Emptor.

    I never seen a lift that donít have a ratchet lock. Australian standards are strick and have to have a locking mechanism. Mine users air actuators to release it from lockout position so it also requires a air system to be hooked up.
    The only problem I really have with it is that itís to fast when lifting and can sometimes be Annoying when making fine adjustments. But when going down I can adjust the speed.
    Was thinking about putting a timed regulator on the motor so that it has two speeds of lifting

    Awesome job.
    For some strange feeling, I think we'd get along if we're ever to meet.
