Score!!!!!!!

Just thought I'd share this with y'all. The factory I work for had an auction yesterday and I won a couple items.

First:
Name:  1245402840.jpg
Views: 2
Size:  52.5 KB It's a 7,000lb cap. Rotary twin post lift. Price= $950!

Second: Also got a 2 ton cap. electric chain hoist and beams for $150.

Now I wont have to crawl all over the floor to work on anything.

What really sucked tho is that I had to pay 13.5% buyers fee plus 7% sales tax and $250 rigging fee to have the lift dismanteled to ship. What kind of crap is that? Oh well, its still cheaper than buyin a new one.

The riggers will disassemble it and I'll have to bring my trailer in to haul it home.

Now I'm curious with how that lift works.. I dont see any visible lines or hookups from the picture.. but how exactly does it operate? Electric based piston oil pumps? Plug into a wall and hit a button type?

Just curious, I've only looked at the big ones and haven't ever peeked at these types before :-)

It has a hydraulic pump with a push button switch on the side of one post. Not real sure on the rest.

So you have to re-assemble it? That kinda sucks but I guess its still better than going out paying all the money for a new one. Good buys.

Damn good buy. We got the same lifts at my college. Looks like you got one with offset beams. Very nice.

^ They only had the 1 2-post lift, 1 drive on, and 4 in-ground lifts.

How's it only 45 min to Muncie from Columbia City? It takes me 50 min to an hour to get to Ft. Wayne.

^ yeah, I thought about the drive on but decided against it because it would take up too much space.
