Why Every Garage and Shop Needs This 2-Post Symmetric Lift

When you take working on cars, trucks, and SUVs as seriously as we do, then you understand much space can be a commodity. You only have so much room to work in and you can’t always use a creeper every time you need to get under the car. You’ll see us upgrading exhausts, swapping out brake rotors, changing drive shafts, and the list goes on and on. So rather than working harder, we’d prefer to work smarter by using the AL-12C 2-post lift by Advantage Lifts.

What makes this 2-post lift a main attraction in our shops is that since we have such a wide variety of projects coming in and out of here, it can handle pretty much any vehicle we throw at it. With a lifting capacity of 12,000 lbs, built with industrial grade steel, and equipped with four universal foot pads made from polyurethane, it can safely raise the smallest cars to the larger trucks into the air with ease.
