I've owned an asymmetrical BendPak for about 9 years now. Never once a problem with it.

I think they are made overseas now, not sure if they were when I bought mine.

I've known a few guys with off brand Chinese lifts and they seem to be a bit less reliable. (problems with pulleys and cables/etc).

And as mentioned, get low profile arms. One of the lifts at the shop I work at was ordered without them and it can be a real pain in the ass.

I've been pretty happy with my Asymetrical 10k Bendpack- it's a year old now. I've worked on Rotary my whole life before now so I'm spoiled. Its clunky, it's loud but I haven't had any issues with it. And it was nearly $1500 cheaper than the comparable Rotary at the time.

Summit Racing sells the entire Bendpack line of 2 post lifts.

I know...free shipping too, but Bendpaks 2-post floor-plate model isn't certified and costs the same as the revolution.

Well, I ended up ordering this: http://www.directlift.com/Pro-9F-Two...ift-P43C8.aspx
There is a Direct Lift warehouse less than 3 hours away and shipping was $230. I compared shipping weights of the 9k lifts and the 8k lifts with the 9's being significantly heavier and probably overbuilt for what I will be lifting. I spoke with warehouses in 2 different states and everybody was prompt, knowledgeable, and nice! Direct Lift is owned by Dover...who also owns Rotary and Revolution I think. My footings should be nice and cured by now...hope the install goes smoothly!

great info. I am also considering a lift. mine will need to be installed outside, under a carport. I'm wanting to store the Superbee above where we park a car. I also want the lift for car restoration uses. I like the look of the tire adapters.

Is a two post lift ok for storing? or do I need to only consider a 4 post lift

thanks

Most people use a 4 post for storage but as long as it has locks, I see no reason why you couldn't use a 2 post for storage too. My Camaro has been sitting up on mine for long enough now that it might as well be for storage!

You'll want to make sure the lift height (to where the last lock will engage) is high enough to store whatever you want under it though.

I too have heard great things about Bendpak. This will be my next purchase once I get situated.

I reached out to them last month looking for additional information about a lift for my house. They are very quick to answer and questions and also provide US vs. them side by side comparisons of build quality and features.

+1 for Bendak

This pic was when we were installing it. I've gotten rid of some of the junk since then.

P.S. I will never ever know how I got along without this lift. It makes everything so much easier and makes things enjoyable that previously weren't.
Old post but thinking of the LE-10 how is yours holding up
