need some opinions on 2 post lift
#11
Ive researched this alot as well. From what I see, you cant go wrong with a Bendpak unit. They are only a little bit more expensive than the cheaper lifts. Something that is going to be an eminent threat to your life needs to be from someone with a good reputation, and I dont mind paying a bit more for it. Its your life, dont lose it over $500.

On the concrete and anchor thing, I would pay very close attention to the directions and recommendations of the manufacturer. Personally, Im going to go big on the concrete pads when the foundation is poured for my garage/shop. Im going to go with 3'x3' x 16" deep with lots of deep rebar and mid rebar pinning way back into the regular slab along with 2 layers of pavement mesh.

For anchors, Im going to get 12" long anchors at least 1" in diameter if not larger. Ive anchored lots of very large (50' tall) Tanks with 2" wedge anchor and never had a failure. If your really paranoid and want to add a touch more safety, have a welding shop weld on some 12 inch extensions (front to back) the same thickness as the lift Foot with 2 more anchor points on each side.
