I paid 900.00 for the one I have and I would give 1500. for a drive on any day. Thats how much trouble it is. Good luck
four post drive on , brakes , all you need is the jack sliding tray or a tall jack stand with added bottle jack .
them landings make great places for your brakes to be laid out and tools are in handy reach .
place for a drop light to lay .
them two post are not good for motor pulls , if you pull motor out , Topsy turby , out of balance .
plus you can't do any serious yanking and prying .
you can get a a movable type and store cars under and over .
no anchor bolts pulling out , cracking that most likely what 4 inch thick concrete .
