WARNING : DO NOT go 'cheap' on a tool such as that !

Your LIFE depends on the structural integrity of it's construction. Not to mention it's overall capability to handle MORE than what you'd ever 'intend' to lift. Lifts are a 'major' purchase that you want to last a long time.

Ditto on Rotary Lifts. They are the dominant brand here abouts.
