It's not a issue. I have the lb. concrete torque specs somewhere and I'll post all the information for you. My friend with the mechanic shop has the industrial size two post/four arm lift's and he has never had a problem. And he lift's all kinds of vehicles from econo box's, 1 ton trucks and over.....
Thanks

Actually, it is an issue as every lift manufacturer that I'm aware of warns about loose anchors and gives minimum specs for the concrete in both thickness and PSI. I've seen a lot of residential garages with 3 1/2" thick poured slabs and nothing but welded wire reinforcement.

Please make certain your concrete meets at least the minimum standards recommended by the lift manufacturer. Also, take note of the warnings about loose anchors, 'wallowed' holes, shimming to plumb the posts, and minimum distance from cracks or expansion joints.

Sorry, I'll clarify.

Yes it does matter, but with this lift, 4" of concrete with either rebar or the wire cattle type fencing for reinforcement is fine. I've never heard of a garage slab being less in thickness that a sidewalk, which are 4".

I can in vision a shifting problem with either a newer slab or a condition like side walks that the ground is still settling or frost heave. I agree with you on testing your concrete, it's always better to be on the safe side, especially with older home's. A lot of driveways and sidewalks have cracks, mostly due to the expansion and contraction with weather conditions.

I plan on using their expansion sleeves and bolts, but also the newer epoxy.

I came across this thread when doing a search on this very lift and I am going to put one in this winter since I am really tired of laying on my back on a creeper and I definately don't want something that is permanent, since my garage has the lower ceiling and like what was said in earlier posts, you can put in other anchors in different locations so that you can use the lift where needed which is exactly what I am needing. I am a member of the Garage Journal Forum and I am hoping that there will be a group buy or special price for the upcoming Holiday season and then I will buy one for sure. This lift will do everything I need without having to be on my back on a creeper. Did you buy this lift? If so, how do you like it? Thanks for letting me dig up an old thread, anyone else bought one of these?
