It arrived!

OK, the Bend Pak lift arrived, right on schedule, delivered by the installing contractor. It took them all of about 2 hours to unpack it all, assemble and test it. I thought it was more complicated than it actually was, but I'm still glad that I hired a pro to install it. For something like this, why take a chance?

Anyway, here are a few pics. I ran it up and down a few times, and I must say this thing seems pretty solidly built, for Chinese junk. lol.

I'll report back in a few months after I've had to chance to cycle it a bunch of times.

Here it all is on the installer's trailer.



Installation starts with 2 posts and a cross-rail.....


Next step is the same for the other 2 posts and cross-rail, then install one of the tracks.....



Add the 2nd track, install all the cables and hoses.....



And voila! I just added a parking spot for another vehicle into my garage! Maybe I'll get 1 more so I can squeeze yet another toy into the garage! Hah!



Now I can get started on my '33 Ford PU project this weekend! Woot!!
