The Bonehead is a homemade drag car that runs in A Altered class. It has a 1967 Chevy 250 CID straight six and runs in the 11's.

We will be at the Nationals @ Bowling Green in June with the car.

Hi Steve,
I have all Rotary lifts and they serve their purpose. However, if I had to do it all over again, I would have bought Mohawk without a doubt !! The construction of Columns and Carriages is way over built for lift spec.'s, nice porblem to have lifting 5-10,000 lbs. above your head. Mohawk id by far the best choice and will be mine when I replace mine, IF NEEDED.
Happy Shopping,
Alfordteck

I've had a Rotary lift in garage for 4 years-no problems what so ever.

Well, finally ordered the Mohawk today along with the weight gauge and it is supposed to be installed next tuesday. Aside from the obvious like moving stuff out of the way in the area where it is to be installed, what should I do or get to make it go smoother? Planned it for my day off so I will be here all day when it gets here. Anyone thinking of getting a lift should look at doing it now as I was told that the price is going up approx 8-10% because of steel increases. On this thing that would be close to 500.00 My buddy just got a 3500 extended cab dually with the diesel engine, wouldn't want that thing on a cheap lift

Got it put in today, took the installer close to 4 hrs so the 300.00 price for the install was money well spent. Just got back in from playing with it, lifted my buddies 1 ton 3500 extended cab dually with a diesel no problem so anything I own will be a piece of cake for it Glad I got this one instead of something lighter. Everything on it is heavy duty & ought to last a couple lifetimes. Only thing I would change is the manual calls for 12-4 wire, you only need 12-3 as the supplied plug is for 3 phase & I have regular 240v. Thanks to everyone who recommended this one, it was worth it.
