4 post lifts, car lifts

searched the site and found no resent post regarding 4 post lifts. Who's using what and what's good and bad. I received my conformation invoice today for a Backyard Buddy unit. I need a extended lift. I want to be able to walk under the car if it's up being stored, I have the height. This is a $5260 lift w/the wheel kit and rolling jack tray, delivered. I've seen the product at different shows, looks to be the best unit on the market. I have a couple of Friends w/import models and they seem pretty shaky to me. I'll be moving mine around and out of the shop. Anybody have anything to had to this subject?
It is hard to justify the cost when all the mags are filled w/ $1800.00 "parking" lifts. Of coarse being crushed to death is not a pretty picture either.
There must be millions of the import lifts out there, any horror story's? Busted parts, blown pistons, collapsed/failed lifts?

If you are looking for a high quality lift look at a Hunter 4 post. They are rated at 14,000lbs. There is a hugh difference in quality between the made in China and the Hunter lift. They are around 18K with two swing are jacks, both rated at 8k. Also installation is included.

Looked at several at the recent NSRA meet in Louisville. I was really impressed with Backyard Buddy. They are American made and are so rigid that you do not have to secure the post feet to the floor. Some peole even install rollers so they can move it around. Made of structural steel and not stamped steel like the imports.
