    Do those lifts, when not in use, fit underneath a car in the garage for storage?

    It depends on your car's ground clearance. With the chocks and front wheel stop in place, it's about ten inches high. If you remove those when not in use, it's about eight inches. I remove the chocks and stop and store it under my sidecar.

    This is the permanent resident on my lift. So much nicer to have it off the ground.

    Dang! Isn't 65 the age at which you're supposed to be getting hid of sh*t, instead of buying more?

    Guess I'd better be clearing out a spot in the shop...

    I use mine for an extra work bench or stand it up against the wall when not in service.

    I use mine as a workbench sometimes too. Of course, if I cleared off my real workbench I could use it...

    I've thought about leaning the lift against the wall when not in use but was concerned about the jack fluid leaking. Any issue with that? Do you lay it on it's side or stand it on end? Come to think about it, it's pretty heavy to stand on end...

    At any rate, it's a handy thing to have, it was $300 well spent.

    or get another lift. One can never have enough horizontal space. Can one?

    I have not had issues with it leaking. Your right on the heavy thing. I unbolt the wheel chock and lean it on the side.

    Good to know. Thanks. Maybe I can make room for more junque in my garage that way.

    Coupon in the latest HF flyer has the 1000lb lift on sale again for $299.99. It's a great deal.

    If you sell the car and buy a pick-up, you can leave the lift in the middle of the space and park the truck over it.

    The other option is to run enough 2x8s along each side with ramps on the end so the car get the clearance it needs. Just my idea for a work-around. ;-)

    But, then you'll trip on the the 2x8's when you're working on the lift / work bench. Besides, how are you going to get the 2x8's home without the Pick-up?

    Then there's the issue of getting 2x8's.............You're in Canada, you'd have to make due with a 50x200 or something
