Having done a number of car projects without a lift I decided to treat myself a few years ago.
This is the absolute best lift...has a 6,000 lb capacity..is mobile (hence the name "Mobil Man"winking smiley and works like a pallet jack.
Goes high enough to walk under the car. There is nothing like standing comfortably while welding in floors.
$3,000 or so delivered.

How tall is the post when its at the bottom? Some of us have 8' ceilings, it looks like its taller than that. I've been looking at the scissor-type myself that allow full access when under the car. Granted, I'm not welding floors in either. I'd love to have one of those if I had the high ceiling.

Sorry Mark, the column is 8 1/2' tall. You need to either dig a hole in the floor or poke a hole in your ceiling.

The lift measures 8 foot 7 inches at the top (I have 12 foot ceilings). But with some basic welding skills it could be shortened...obviously you couldn't walk under the car but there would be enough room to work.
I had thought of modifying a boat lift (can't seem to paste a picture)...they usually have enough capacity to lift a Sprite.

Joe, does it need a 220 outlet? I have a 10 ft ceiling, but only 110 outlets.

Plugs into 110 Steve.
There is nothing like being able to move the car around the shop when it's on the lift !
