Low clearance lift question.

Hey just wanted to get you're guys opinion in our use to be barn now garage we had a ben pearson lift but had to sell it due to needing cash to put a new pump in our well.So...Ive been looking at buying something to go back in here but the roof was@the time the lift was in there was a gable roof&pretty high.But I had to pretty much tear everything down by myself&I had to make it a pitch roof with the highest point being about 10 ft 6 inches.So Im wondering what I could get to fit in here.I looked@some scissor lifts just because there cheap but they only give limited access.I love using my buddy's lift to get to the starter on my car,fly wheel exhaust etc&it seems like all of the scissor lifts block me from getting to the motor.If theres one I could get to the motor Id deal with the rest.Id like a low clearance lift that I could make work.Im a short guy 5ft6&I know spreading my legs I can get down another foot.Any ideas on a low pro lift?Thanks!
