I have one of these and also one of the smaller lifts. The smaller ones are ok for storage but I prefer this one for working:

Make sure you get a jack.

I have this lift. 8 years with weekly use no issues whatsoever. Paid just under $2k delivered.

FYI a 9'6" ceiling height will probably not give you enough room to stand while working. My 69 is approx 52" high plus 7" for the ramps will leave only 4'6" clearance under the ramps.

Do you have a full 9'6" clear under any light fixtures and/or a garage door opener?

I bought my two post lift from these guys, can recommend the quality, service and price. Not sure if they'll have a 4 post for your needs or not though...worth a look.

When it comes to a lift, 2 or 4 post, the last thing I worry about is price. I work under them everyday, so I'm more concerned with what isn't going to fail. I only use American made Rotary Lifts, not the Revolution Series, as that is a Chinese line built to compete with the other Chinese lifts. There are a few video's on Youtube showing testing and failure of Chinese lifts.

There are a hundred different lifts out there to buy, but only one you. Choose a lift that is the safest, not the cheapest, and that will mean a non-Chinese lift.

When did Rotary switch the Revolution Series to being made in China? My Revolution 7 is over 10 years old, but was made in the USA

All Revolutions are Chinese made. Came out about 2007 or 2008 to compete with BendPak Chinese lifts. It's two different companies, but owned by the same parent. Rotary Lift and Rotary Revolution. I'm pretty sure the Revolution wasn't out 10 years ago, but could be wrong.

Had my Revolution 7 since at least 2006 and I know back then it was on Rotary Lift's Site - I bought it from my local Rotary Lift Rep

I bought a Greg Smith 4 post and have it in my warehouse at work. It gets used once a month. Under 2K delivered. For my needs, it is perfect.
