What are the bottle jacks for?
Bottle jacks keep being mentioned, but after a quick review of the manual, I can't find a reference to there use. What are they for, and what size is needed?

This 4-post lift includes a jack tray that would support bottle jacks. The bottle jacks would be used to raise the vehicle off the upper platform/tracks to remove the wheels for service. This jack tray with bottle jacks are shown in the third picture under the main picture of the item. The bottle jacks aren't included with the lift.

You can use the bottle jacks to lift the vehicle while it's on a hoist--helpful if you need to remove a wheel or two from the vehicle. You can also use a bottle jack while on a separate crossmember between the ramps to lift or support heavy items under a vehicle. Capacity needed depends on the intended use.
