Need advice on lift purchase

I was going to hold off on the purchase of a lift until I built my new garage, but I've just been offered a Rotary SPO84 for $900, and I'm getting the urge to jump on it. It's in good shape, and I know Rotary is a good name, but at the same time it's an older lift and seems to lack some of the features of newer variable symmetry lifts. Maybe I'm being too picky for home use, which is why I'd like others' opinions. I've included a picture of the same model (but not the actual lift for sale). It would be used in a home garage with slightly higher than home garage usage frequency, on a variety of vehicle sizes. Thoughts?

Edit - Also, it 'only' has a 7000lb capacity, and I'm not sure of the max lift height - though I think it may only be 10'.
