Planning on buying a 4 post lift and a new compressor, Suggestions?
 
I am planning on buying a four post lift in the next few weeks, I have done a bit of research and I'm still not sure which lift I will be buying but I have been looking into this one Atlas Lift I also plan on buying the jack with it. I was looking into a 2 post lift but I have decided that I will need something I can move around my shop. Do any of you have opinions on this lift or have you owned one? I'd also be happy with your opinion on different 4 posts if you have one. I'll be using it to store my 72 Nova and also using it to work on it. I have heard plenty about buying a 2 post instead of a 4 if I am using it to work on a car but I have a really hard time giving up the mobility of the 4 post.

The other item I will be buying is an air compressor, I plan on purchasing this one Here same question as the lift, any of you have this thing? Or do you have suggestions on a different better compressor around this price?

My final question is how in hell do you unload a 4 post lift without a forklift? I have an engine hoist and a rinky dink HF dolly and I can possible get my hands on a pallet jack but there's no way I can get a forklift. This is going in my shop in the backyard of my house, any ideas?

You sure have good taste when it comes to compressors! The only thing to recommend about buying that Quincy is just do it! :thumbup: You spend a few dollars more but you will have a compressor you can count on to be there for you when you need it, real performance figures that it will live up to and it will run at 100% duty if needed.


BTW, if there is a Northern Tool store near you they have that same compressor usually in stock at about the same price.

Transfer it from the freight truck to a car hauler trailer, then back into the yard and unload it a piece at a time.
