|I have been reading around on this site about automobile lifts but haven't found a thread that discusses the difference between a 2 post lift and a 4 post lift.
For a few years now I always thought that when I got down to buying a lift I would go with a 2 post no questions asked. Now that I am getting closer and starting to think about the purchase more realistically, I am wondering if my initial decision is correct??
The main advantage that I can see for a 4 post lift is the storage feature, one car on top and one underneath and having 4 points of contact on the floor, possibly easier to install/use? Disadvantage cost seems higher and it has a bigger foot print.
I'm a DIY'r and will be using this at home, light auto repairs.
Seems to me the extra cost of a 4 post may be worth it as I can reclaim some of the floor space by stacking cars BUT am I giving up anything? Is a 2-post better for working on cars? Seems it would be in some cases.
