I know you said post lift was out they do have some good prices on portable post lifts. Their service has been great on what I have bought from them.
They have the scissor lifts but they get in the way of lots of things that the two post does not.

Does anyone know if this unit would require additional footings? My garage floor was poured 6" with actual rebar and not "fence panel" but no provisions were specifically made for a lift. I did not see any information on their site regarding this either way.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

I hit the "Download Manual" button on the web site and read this:
3. The floor on which the lift is to be installed must be 4” inch minimum thickness concrete, with a minimum compressive strength of 3000 psi. (Reinforced steel bar optional).
I'm not a construction guy but it sounds promising for your application. I'm intrigued now as well.

Now I just need to convince the wife.

I put one of the Dannmar 2 post lifts, 10ACX (D10-A in my new garage. It has three year warranty. When we poured the concrete I dug out a area where the columns would be and made it thicker and threw in some rebar for good measure. Concrete is a strange thing. If you have a 4" slab and want to double the strength you only add one more inch, sounds crazy but the is what they told me.
When you are looking at a lift make sure it is certified by ANSI American National Standards and ALI Automotive Lift Institute. Some are not and you can watch some horror stories on the net where they test them and they fail with their rated loads and no safety.
The most difficult thing was drilling the bolt holes in the concrete. I went to Harbor Freight and got a cheap drill for concrete and burnt it out on the first hole. So I went to rental store and rented good one for about $40 along with the bit for the 3/4" bolts. It would drill the holes 6" deep in like 30 seconds so was finished in just a few minutes.
I stood the columns up by myself with the help of engine hoist and nylon strap. My builder that put the steel building up has a Bendpack and he said the Dannmar looked to be made much better especially the pulley system for the cables. His pulleys failed first year he had his. The Dannmar has steel pulleys with bearings. I am still waiting for the power company to come run the underground power cable to the garage so I can start using it.

I have a 6000 lbs Hanmecson scissors lift and it is beyond useful. It lifts the car in a minute and let's you access a lot of difficult places. Granted that some of the structure gets in the way in the middle of the car, but you can work around it (see the second link below).

Check my pictures in this thread. There are other ideas in that thread as well:

Wow, David! That is really coming along and looking great. I've been spending a lot of time finishing out the interior of my shop, too. I'm still debating on exactly where to put my lift, but I have a little bit of time before I have to decide, as I am waiting until I get the steel liner panels installed before I make that purchase.
