  • Anyone have a Bendpak Flush Mount Scissor lift?

    Planning to install a Bendpak flush mount lift in the new garage. Anyone else have one of these? Would be interested in how far apart the two lifts are installed with someone using it on a TR6. Minimum recommended distance is 40 inches which seems a bit wide. Planning to get under the car and do some measuring tomorrow but thought I'd ask!
    With nearly 45" of rise, the MDS-6LPF flush-mount mid-rise lift is a world-class performer. There's no better way to get this much power from zero-footprint design.

    i have a Greg Smith scissor lift but the ramps are not that far apart. i made sure they were just wide enough to use with our daily driver lift points. then the opening in the middle fell where it did. on mine i could buy a cross bar kit that allowed for feet to slide across them and line up under the frame of a narrower frame type car.

    on the TR6, i use the one bar at the front and can set the feet straight on the ramp in the rear. most of the other cars i have had on it, i had to use both bars.

    figured if i was going to have a lift, i wanted to be able to use on all my vehicles.

    the one thing i had to do was to cut some 2x12's for the front and rear. this way i could get the car high enough to put the feet under them.

      I have a direct lift that goes up to 54 inches. I placed 2 x 12 on each side so I have enough clearance for the250. It also is used as a work bench, dog grooming bench, paint stand etc. I really like it, cost about 1200

        agree with Ron. it makes a great work table that you can get all the way around. while my lift does go up 6', i normally just raise it a little over half way and roll around on a stool under the car while working. for that reason i would recommend the 54" lift if you can get it.
