    WTB: 2 Post Car Hoist New or Used

    As the title states looking for a 2 Post Hoist but no made in China units. Can be a used unit or if anyone has suggestions on new units I am open to that as well. Let me know what you got...

    Most new hoists are made in China ! Rotary & Challenger are assembled in North America! Depending if you are using for hobby or business? New Rotary, Challenger offer a better warranty. Bend Pak also makes a fairly good hoist(as a 2 post). Price will depend on the Capacity! Anything over 10000lbs is going to be pricey!
    If your looking at used 2 post, Make sure that you do not have wear on guides, Check that cables do not have more than 2 broken strands(per cable) & check that the hoses are not weeping oil(no cylinder leaks)
    Also, good idea to open reservoir & smell oil, burnt smell asking for trouble(hydraulic pump is not cheap)
    Good luck!! The best money that you will spend!

    If going used, I would recommend sticking with Rotary. $2000-$3000 will get you a good 5-15 year old hoist.

    I have a 2001 AMCO/Snap-on 9000lbs at home and it's garbage compared to our 1996 7000lb Rotary's at work.

    Thank you for all the replies. Currently looking for a commercial unit to set this up in but it could be a few months before finding one according to the agent.
