What kind of car lift/lifts is this?

Anyone know what this lift is? PM'd the original poster of the pic but no response.

I've tried googling and searching all over. Coming up with nothing and getting pretty frustrated that the internet is letting me down.

I don't know, but I could sure use them...ramps fuck up my front valence, and many jacks are not low enough to get under...

If you find out, post here?

You can buy decent car lifts for storage (lifts from the wheels so the shocks aren't unladen) for around $2k shipped.

Yeah, I will definitely be putting in a lift (either 2 post or 4 post) eventually, but for now wanted something that would make it easier to get under the car.

Hit me up before you do, I've been meaning to pick one up and they cut big breaks if you can split shipping. I was looking at Eagle last week, seems like good quality stuff.

If you are going to use this, you might as well just use ramps

Thanks Benz.

The original poster of that pic responded to my PM tonight. Said the same thing about them probably not being available in the US. He said he paid $350 in Australia but didn't give me a name brand or anything.

P.S...what did you type in to search. I tried everything I could think of in standard google, and google images to try to find it.

Found this posted while browsing these online...

Got a set from CJ Autos. Great piece of kit. What an amount of lift you get!!! Really good for a FB like me to get under and work painlessly.
Basically they are a set of collapsible ramps, which you connect to a hydraulic footpump. You them pump them up to full height ~16" and then swing a locking mechanism into place. The pipes and pump can then be removed.
Let-down is the opposite of pump-up, connect the pump, pressure up, lift them off the lock ,swing out the lock and de-pressure.
On complaint might be they are a tad heavy, but given the advantages I can live with that.

350 is a quite reasonable price for that, the hydraulics add quite a bit of expense on their own

Yeah, I'd buy them for $350 in a heartbeat. Sent an email to the company to see if they have any distributors in the US.

There's also this option...but $1,300.

Yup, there is. Says you can lock them up and remove the pump and hosing.

Why would you spend $350 on that? You can't do brakes or anything suspension or tire or wheel related with those things. You can buy a floor jack for $100 and do whatever you want

You probally can't even do an oil change correctly with those. Depending on where your sump / drainbolt is. Because the car won't even be close to level

There are still a ton of other reasons why it would be beneficial to easily get the car up this high (16"). My Vette, with side pipes, is very low. Even with 4 ton jack stands (higher/taller than normal 2 ton stands). I have to wiggle my way under the car, and work in tight quarters to the floor.

Just in the past 4 weeks I had to replace a starter, speedometer cable, and rebuild a steering gear box. All which require access to under the car, but do not require the car to be level.

Plus, you can buy 4 of them and the car would be level for those oil changes.

When I was in high school I was a car jockey at a BMW shop, we had a '71 Vette with sidepipes that was a trade in. I parked it on a single post bay and hung up the exhaust...DOH! That's how I learned why there were 2 post lifts when I was 16
