        PFer (Lincoln?) was great to deal with....the rest not so much. Mine is still going strong after a coupla years now nd the new cableless version looks pretty trick?

          The people I interacted with just didn't seem to give a shit, the attitude I picked up was give us money and fuck off. Even basic stuff like arranging shipping for a heavy and bulky item was too hard for them, the best they could manage was sending it to a depot nearly an hour from my house, well OK what am I supposed to do then, put it in the boot of my car? I had to sort out shipping for myself in the end. I thought they could at least help by hooking me up with an installer, nope, here's a couple of phone numbers but none of them work in your area, oh well, you're on your own I guess. Luckily some awesome PF dudes came out and helped me with that but the actual HAPP people were fucking useless from beginning to end.

          The product is fine like I said but I wouldn't buy anything from them again.

            I ended up with a Joel's Garage Gear clear floor 4.5T 2-poster.

            Great blokes to deal with. They couldn't get it to my door, but the depot was around the corner. Ended up hiring a car trailer and using my engine crane to unload it.

            They couldn't help with an installer either, but after we rang several companies and got told "Nup, too busy", one guy put us into another guy, who knew a guy, and we've got a fella coming out to put it in. Which is great, because laying down in pieces, they take up a fuckload of floorspace.

              Norbie, when bought mine last year, I dealt with Maree, she was pretty easy to deal with, sorted out shipping etc. All in all pretty smooth process. For the next one I'm getting I'm going to go thru superior hoists in melb.

                I got a grilling when Lincoln went AWOL and I asked Maree about getting the same deal. Mine leaks from where the reservoir bolts to the pump.

                  Mine does too, but not enough to bother me yet.

                    Happy with my tufflift experience, organised the installer too - all worked out.

                      Don't want to start a new thread and looking to sort out a hoist...

                      2nd storey over half the garage so intent is the hoist is on the right hand side with a sloping roof that attaches to the 2nd story wall, that way getting more clearance. There's a rear door to the garage also to allow access out to the backyard.

                      Thoughts on best options out of the below?

                      4 post may be out of the question in general seeing as driving through to the back may be problematic, so looks like it may have to be a two-post. Trying to decide somewhat now to assess the loading and provide what's needed for it during construction. Ideally would like to park a car on the hoist, and one underneath.

                        just on this, anyone know of any installers in the sydney area? I have a low ceiling in my garage (2.4m) so the only hoist i could fit is a HAPP90. but im not sure if my slab will be suitable and/or what would need to be done to make it work. wouldn't mind a professional set of eyes over it to make sure it would be ok

                          you want to lift your car how far off the ground?

                            Was my first thought too. Not very. A meter at best for a regular sedan, non SUV type vehicle. Still give plenty of room underneath but then becomes an issue where you can't stand and can't lie and need some kind of low chair.

                              It would actually be perfect for some, me included to be rolling around a creeper chair. Also easier to lower a gearbox in my set up from a metre rather than 2 metres in the air.

                                the living room is above the garage so it is what it is. I would mostly be lifting my MR2 and my elise so I would get about 1-1.2m of lift. would be sitting on a milk crate or low chair like mizone posted. still better than crawling in and out under a car on jack stands...

                                but yeah not sure my slab is thick enough (have tried measuring but not sure im doing it right, anyway it seems to be roughly 80mm), plus the garage slab is split into halves, so i have nfi if it can support a hoist without major work to the slab, you can see the seams and the space i have to work with here (would be putting the hoist where the mr2 is in this pic - and the water heater has already been removed)
