Question

Can someone provide the height for each safety pin locking point?

My garage ceiling is low and I have a garage door opener so I need to know how much height I can get at each safety pin locking point. I want to make sure we'll have the proper clearance with the top of our vehicles. Thank you for your time.

The lift has the ability to lift the car between 48 to 53 inches. 53 inches is the maximum. The range is provided because you might not want the car lifted to full height in some instances.

Question

Must this be used on concrete?

Does the unit have to sit on a concrete floor or can it be used on top of flooring products such as Swisstrax or RaceDeck? Can it be used on flooring if a steel plate is put down over the flooring?

Low clearance cars

Your scissor lift seems perfect for my garage. However all of my cars are sports cars with very low ground clearance, any problem using this lift with low clearance cars? Are longer approach ramps available?

You can build ramps using stacked 2x12's or sink the lift into the floor. You'll need about 4" of height.

For sports cars I went and bought 2 2by10's by 12 feet long, mitered a 30 degree tapper on the ends and place them on the sides of the lift and drive the car up onto the ramps and over the lift with no problems. If the vehicle sits really low just buy 4 boards and double them up.

Question

The base of this lift, Model# MD-6XP, looks narrow such that there would be significant risk of the car toppling over if bumped.

Is there any safety mechanism to prevent the car from toppling over when the lift is fully raised?

Thanks,

There are no safety mechanisms built into this lift. The manufacturer has tested this lift over and over again and have constructed it with a zero percent chance of car ever toppling off the lift.

answer 2
There is no mechanism to prevent the lift from tipping side to side, it only has locks to prevent the lift from lowering unexpectedly or a mechanical failure. I have this lift and when fully raised its stable and I feel comfortable working next to the vehicle. If you were doing some very heavy prying on a suspension component you will feel the lift/vehicle move somewhat. You just need to use caution and common sense when working on something and know that you can't overdue some tasks, however I don't think it would ever tip over, it's pretty stable.
