This week I am going to highlight two-post lifts, one of the most popular pieces of equipment for many automotive shops.

What is a 2-post lift?

This type of hydraulic lift is surface-mounted, lifts vehicles between two-posts, with or without an overhead beam. The lift utilizes swing-arm engagement for positioning the vehicle, but some models offer alternatives such as runways/ramps.

Two-post lifts have easily become the best-selling "frame-engaging" lifts. These lifts provide an easy drive-thru work experience.

There are two types of 2-post lifts: symmetric and asymmetric. Both of these options are great, but provide a slightly different stance. Asymmetric lifts are designed to increase space once the vehicle is in place, utilizing a 30-degree angle on each post with shorter front swing-arms.

GREATEST BENEFITS: Cheaper than most, fully accessible wheels, more accessibility to the car, and easy to pull through. Makes for a quick, pain-free job!
