Wanting a 2 post lift and was wondering where in your shop you located your lift... My shop or garage is 28'x30' with 30' being the width and 28' deep. I was thinking 12' to the center of the post off the back wall. the lift is a symmetric lift that can be used Asymmetric has 3 extension arms in rear

Youll need 12 ft walls for the two post. Most 12' wall building kits will have the rafters at 11'8".. Measure the clearance before you drill the holes in the floor..

when I had the shop built I ask for 12' wall they are 12'5"... the hoist im looking at is min 143/4" max of 149" so it will be close

To answer your placement question , it should come with a template. Lay it out and give yourself plenty of space around it.. The only vehicle i've had problems is a buddys Suburban. If you get one you'll kick yourself for not getting one sooner.. I mounted an air hose coil and two drop lights on it... You can park a car under a lifted car as well...

My lift is a Eagle #10.500.If you go above #9k I would fecommend 6" concrete at the anchor base.you can also go with the model that has the cross brace at the bottom .that way u wouldnt need to raise the ceiling.

Yea Steve seem like he know his business... He said the 10000 hoist will work find with the 4" concrete in the garage... He does have a smaller model but said with a suburban or the sons pickup he would step up...

Do any of you folks have experience with these:

My shop is 30x50ft, but I would hate to lose so much space to a lift.

thanks

You actually gain space with the tall lift because you can stack two cars in one space... The tall lift also allows you to walk under the vehicle ... I'd buy the tall two post.. Get one that'll lift a dually .
