  • 2-Post lifts

    I have a 10,000# 2-post lift recently installed and wondering where to place the lift arms correctly, I cannot find anything in the supplied lifting book. Any one using a 2-post lift on a WM300 care to show me where to place the lift arms on the frame rails safely either by pictures or measurements.
    The installer stated he has no clue.

    Bob, I have had several of these trucks up on the lift, a few variables as far as weight and where the center of the truck is so to speak, Around the area of the forward most running board bracket and at the rear towards the front of the rear spring, spring hanger.
    I always, once up and check for balance as good as possible, I place a screw jack at the front and rear for a little piece of mind.

    Bob, I am looking for a lift for my future workshop and was wondering what lift you have and would you recommend it. Any suggestions or recommendations would be great.

      I've been considering a 2-post for my shop as well, I know they have become way more affordable, and you even see some good used equipment as well. I'd be interested in hearing some more on this....
