      Yep. Your hoist is a floor plate model so they are opposite as you said. Lift a car, lower on safeties and use a rattle gun with a tube socket. Makes adjusting easy.

          Just deciding between the HAPP40 and HAPP60 clear floor lifts for home use. From what I can see the main difference is single vs dual point safety releases.

          Will walking around the vehicle every time to release the opposite side annoying the piss out of me over time for the saving of $200?

            It would annoy the fuck out of me and I would spend more than 200 for single point release over double.

              If you've got limited room like I do, I think that $200 is worth spending; sometimes I just want to get the wheels off the ground, and to get 'round to the other side of the hoist when you can't just walk under the car means climbing over the arms & squeezing past things. 'Tis annoying. Why did they make my block of land so small?!
              Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                I mentioned this in another thread but the dual point release on my HAPP60 hasn't really bothered me. Obviously single point would be far more convenient, but in my case I'm being inconvenienced on average maybe 2-3 times a week, so it's a not a big deal at all. If you were using a hoist more often than me I can see that $200 being worthwhile though. For a pro there would be no question.

                  Noob question - you pull the release and it stays unlocked until the car is on the ground - and then it re-sets or something?

                    It resets when the carriages move up again.

                      No HAPP60s in stock so the decision was made for me to go with the HAPP40.

                      Sorry if it causes you any trouble Lincoln but not being able to get hold of you by email or phone all week, I contacted Maree so that I could pick up on my rare day off next week. She was not impressed with the quoted price though.

                        No worries. I am overseas and it would have been cheaper from you from Brisbane.

                          It might have helped avoid the 3rd degree, but anyway I worked out a deal with Maree.

                          I collected it today but am away on holidays from tomorrow so won't have a chance to install for a week or 2. I'll be interested to see if I can install it by myself...

                            If you have a forklift it's possible, but still pretty sketchy standing the posts up by yourself unless they're well supported.

                              I was thinking of using a chain block next to the side wall of the shed to get them upright, then shimmying into position.

                                In my experience the posts are surprisingly stable once they're upright. Getting them upright is the hard part, but a chain block will definitely help!
