We always share with you our customer pictures when customers are kind enough to share their experience and feedback with us. In this case, the customer is Karl Wilen out of Olatha, KS. He purchasedour BendPak MD-6XP Mid Rise Lift. This lift is extremely popular with the home / hobbyist crowd, because it’s got the features they want. The typical home / hobbyist doesn’t have a very tall ceiling, so they only need a lift that raises the vehicle to about 48 inches or so. They also like the fact that the lift is portable. You can just roll this thing around your shop, or even out your garage doors if you need to. The Car Lift also offers access to most of the vehicle for servicing it. However, as with every lift, there are shortcomings. This lift doesn’t allow complete access to the underside of the car. When a lift is portable, it will typically have structural cross members that run from one side to the other, and they get in the way of accessing the very center of the underside of the car. You typically won’t be able to access catalytic converters, nor transmissions.
But you can see what Karl did to modify his lift when he needed more access than this auto lift would provide.
