Thx! I have a similar tractor and figured it would help. Any preferences on brand?

Have done quite a few installs over the years with homes and shops. Pallet Jacks, floor jacks, and/or engine hoist and some hand tools. Never had the need to bolt one to the floor and kept all mine mobile.

Same here. Never bolted them down and I'm able to move them around easily with the supplied dollies.

I like the Atlas Garage Pro 8000 EXT sold by Greg Smith that are extra tall and I use mine mostly for parking / storage. Hard to beat the price and they seem to be well made and I have not experienced any issues with 3 that I have bought. You used to be able to get them on sale for around $2500 including drip pans, ramps, and dollies. Greg Smith was bought out and I think they are now about $3,500. The real key is having a reasonably level floor and ensuring the cables are adjust properly during assembly so that the car is lifted and stored level.

There are certainly more expensive commercial type lifts available versus hobbyist type that are beefier if you're concerned.

I like my 2 Atlas Lifts that I got from Greg Smith.

I did the XH-PRO8000EXT Atlas Garage Pro 8,000lbs capacity extended height lift.
It was $2800 shipped to my garage in Sept 2019. I have 2 of these. Put them together myself. I use them for parking under also.

I guess Greg Smith got bought out by Tooltopia?

Looks like most of their lifts are out of stock right now

Jeff, good friends and local NCRS guys own a company called AutoQuip Sales. Ask for Lou. See if they’ll make the trip from Long Island? Feel free to name drop
