Default Anyone try the Quick Jack?

I was looking at floor jacks and came across the Quick Jack which looks pretty awesome for general maintenance, but they're pretty expensive unless they work REALLY well. They come highly rated online, but I was curious if anyone here had any experience with it.

No personal experience...But At that price, id venture to say youd be better off picking up a new 4-post lift. Hell you can get lucky and pick up a used 2-post lift in the ball park if youre lucky.

No experience, but it seems like an ideal niche between the functionality of a 2 or 4 post lift and not being able to permanently dedicate the space to one. I know a guy with an RX that did an in-depth writeup. IIRC, his only complaint were the wheels and after reading the review, QuickJack overnighted him a new set.

I'm all about alternatives and these look interesting. Easier than a jack and stands to use for sure. Just seems like an awful lot of framework right where I'd want to roll through and work, I'd see myself running into them on the creeper.

Looks great for changing tires and doing brake jobs but not so much for drivetrain or full suspension services. And yes you can definitely find used twin post lifts for that money.

These tend to be very popular with people who have track cars as they are easily transportable.

I'd love a 2 post lift, but unfortunately my garage is too small to allow it. This solution seems to be the closest thing I could get to a lift and looks to be pretty versatile (even has the ability to lift a motorcycle which would come in handy).

There's a guy on this forum that crammed a 2 post into his garage just fine. The posts actually penetrate the ceiling to get it to fit. You won't be walking under an SUV though.

we did it in a garage like that, cut a hole in the garage ceiling to just fit a car.
