A Must Have Piece Of Equipment
Going under the car is complex because visibility is limited, and there is a chance of being hurt or disorganized. As a result, if you own an auto shop, this is a must-have piece of equipment. One of the most significant investments you can make for your auto shop or garage is a car lift. In most service and repair bays, it is one of the most popular pieces on display. They're an essential part of vehicle maintenance and repair; they're used more than any other piece of equipment in your shop daily.
Some of more popular brands of Car lifts include Bendpak Lifts, Dannmar Lifts, MaxJax Lifts, & Titan Lifts.
A Leverage Your Garage Space
A car lift is also an excellent option for a garage with inadequate storage space for your cars. Car lifts have several advantages to car owners. People often use car lifts for garages because of their comfort and the opportunity to use the available space. For the comfort and practicality they provide, homeowners with a lack of parking space in their garage are moving to a car lift. People who love being hands-on with their vehicle's upkeep will appreciate a car lift's flexibility. The excellent mobility provided by a car lift makes maintenance and repairs on the underside of your car much more manageable.
Car lifts come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Still, most of them fall into one of two categories depending on how they engage the vehicle: wheel engaging car lifts and frame employing car lifts. Four Post Car Lifts (wheel engaging) and Two Post Car Lifts are the most common auto lifts in each group (frame engaging). Specialty lifts, including car scissor lifts, portable car lifts, mobile column lifts, in-ground lifts, and parking lifts, are less popular car lifts.

How Do Your Lifts Work?
In general, all car lifts use a hydraulic system. The system comprises a fluid-reliant piston mounted inside a rigid non-deforming cylinder known as the hydraulic ram.
An electric motor then pumps the fluid (mainly oil) inside the cylinder tank to create pressure.
As the pressure builds up in the cylinder, the fluid pushes against the piston. This action generates enough force to move the lift (and the car) upwards. It firmly holds in place until the actions of the pump again withdraw the fluid and pressure.
Some car lifts have cylinders and pistons on one side, while others have them on both sides of the car lift.
Who Makes The Best Lifts?
