SCISSOR LIFT FOR <£1K 2,268kg

Post by ScimmyMike » Wed Jun 05, 2019 12:20 pm

Don't know whether anyone may be interested but costco have a scissor lift for £1k delivered, it's basic but well up to handling a scimitar's weight

You'll of course either need to be a member or know one to be able to purchase it.


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

SCISSOR LIFT FOR <£1K 2,268kg

Post by Stephenl » Wed Jun 05, 2019 11:40 pm

I've been looking at something similar which lifts up the front two wheels only, you drive onto them and then a hydralic pump lifts two ramps. A guy in one of the classic car magazines has one and lifted his scimitar with it and then put a trolley jack under the rear axle to get all 4 wheels off the ground (or it might have been the reverse order!). I was sorely tempted but as I'm in the US it would have been painful to ship.

Is this a good deal?
Costco US have this lift too, for $999, which is about £780, even better.

Do you have one Mike?

This one looks good for a low height garage and only £160 more than the scissor lift above.

A jack and four axle stands works out a lot cheaper.

Interesting. i had 2sets of the hydraulic ramps to get all 4 wheels up, replaced with @ scissor lift from bhrepairs delivered the Costco one compare seems lightweight, mine weighs 450kg as my left foot will attest to but it’s great with a 48 inch lift height lifts my 6 a with ease

that would be neat! if the switch gear could fit on either side of lifting post as 'just too wide' for the garage :-(
and no I'm not cutting a hole in the wall to access the switch.

Both of course would require bolting down to a decent thickness of concrete, most typical prefab type garage's floor slabs wouldn't be suitable to take the bolts required I'd say unless you know the specification and thickness of the concrete used

But if one has a low ceiling it would not be difficult to make reinforcing straps/bars to column tops to ensure stability.

Scissor lifts don't need bolting down in fact mine is designed to be mobile I did have a friend dig me a 150mm slab outside 1 of my garages so I can fully liftvandvavoid the door frame

I did consider the TWO post lift and got 'worried' about the strength of the floor , actually couldn't see if there was a spec given on data sheet for the floor?

I guess it would be prudent to fix the the walls for 'fore-n-aft' rather than ceiling?? , but what to do to stop the tops folding in? as pretty sure the cross member shown is only to cover the drive system?

couple of sections of RSJ made into an 'H' pattern would work?

also considered that it would take up too much room, even the narrow/low version :-(

and would I really use it enough to get past the prying eyes of SWAMBO, it just 'might' be obvious? :wink:
