Did this video help you?

keithhound: scissor lifts are a money maker! what source did you use for hydraulic cylinders?

redfourtrack: And no I dont mean it has rear diffs in the front before some smart ass replys

1BlubeTube: Now make a full-size car lift then upload that video.

redfourtrack: Most cars....European cars have everything youve just listed under the bonnet/front of the vehicle and seeings as I built this for myself for my cars....its fine as nothing much is in the centre of a vehicle, exhaust, odd few pipes, still all accessible.

Wes Shaw: The A TEAM

Martin Meldal: Hello. could you send some plans and objectives of this lift at my mail? martin-meldal@hotmail.com

redfourtrack: 2mm thickness? I dont think id put 2 ton of car on it if it was 2mm somehow lol, its 4mm I think I brought or 5, one or the other.

redfourtrack: A hoist? Do you mean a post lift.....tbh unless your doing an exhaust....what else do you work on in the centre of a vehicle?....not much. :-P

redfourtrack: Yer there quite heavy to manouvre, I use a modified big engine crane to move it on my drive, you can buy them on ebay for like a grand, this cost me about £200 for the lot, gonna change the safety feature though next time I have it out and lock the two bottom parts together so its impossible to collapse on itself.

jessielbedard17: good luck trying to work under your car with that in the way... which is the point of a hoist most of the time.

Pat Low: What are the measurements for your steel rectangular tubings? (50x25mm? looks to be 2mm thickness?)

redfourtrack: Errr that would be way too expensive and time consuming for me, besides it wouldnt be practical as there not mobile.

oWnedByFridge: Could someone please tell me the name of those 2 tube like things that raise and lower the lift.

Andrew Hope: Good plan, strangly I had a thought of making one of these after seeing hydraulics on how it's made. Worked out it would probably be cheaper DIY than actually buying one. Good video Did you come across any problems during building or thing syou would change?

redfourtrack: Well..took three tries really on rams and where to place, in the end two rams used, theres a hell of a force to start with on these scissor lifts, the rams can act like a press and bend the metal instead of lifting the car as I found out trying to use one ram, what I did was looked at the manufactured ones that are on YouTube and ebay and loosely copied them, trick to building it was keeping everything straight with clamps while you weld, cos obviously weld pulls metal in different directions.

wsvitak: thats perfect....especially if u have a garage you can leave it there, drive over it and just put it up when u need it.

biguglycaprice: Fuel lines, brake lines, transmission, clutch, driveshaft, fuel filter, rear diff, pinion seal, evap, o2 sensors, underbody panels, so yeah not much.

redfourtrack: Do you mean....Rams...lol

piglett2195: looks good to me , well done : )
