Two Post Car Lift Information: Helping Customers choose the right lift.

Check out our Fast Selling Two Post Lifts

One of the most common productive pieces of equipment in a shop is 2 post car lifts. Typically, it makes more sense for smaller shops, DIY mechanics, and hobbyists to choose the two post lifts for working on vehicles.

A two post lift is less expensive, takes up less space, and lifts the car higher in shops with low ceilings, allowing technicians access to all parts of the vehicle.

Amsan provides both clear floor and floorplate models on two post lifts. 2 post car lifts are less expensive, takes up less space, and lifts the car higher in shops with low ceilings, allowing technicians access to all parts of the vehicle. There is plenty of room and access open to the vehicle. The baseplate model of 2 post car lifts has a plate on the floor which connects to the bottom of the two-post column. This design is easier to fit in garages with low ceilings. The biggest advantage of clear floor models over floor plates is that equipment such as oil pans, jacks, rolling stools, etc. can be rolled under the car without hitting the floor plate.

Asymmetrical versus symmetrical is one of the important considerations when choosing your right 2 post car lifts. It all depends on what you’re lifting and what will best suit your shop. For heavier trucks, SUVs, and other large vehicles symmetrical lifts are great due to their good level of support. Large vehicles have doors that protrude forward, making it easier to get in and out. The asymmetrical two-post lifts, on the other hand, have a front arm, which is shorter than the rear arm, allowing the car to stand ahead of the posts leaving more room to open the doors.
