i can put the pump and motor inside but how bad it the cable and pulley system going to get trashed out side. is it all grease able?

Hello neighbor from across the valley. I have a low ceiling in my shop and I set my 4 post lift outside my shop. I have had it outside since 2010 and so far all is well. The weather is a little hard on the paint or powder coat but the cables are stainless and so far are wearing great.

I also have a mid rise scissor lift in my shop and I can raise a vehicle high enough to do brake and suspension work but depending on which vehicle I choose I have to be extremely careful of the low ceiling. I have a canopy for the outside lift but just haven't put it up. (I wonder if I could find all the parts) .

A word of advice is to plan ahead and secure it in and your ready to go.
