In Australia Pits are illegal, probably due to the reason Luddite said.

I think this jack is nice, I know someone with one and he takes it to track days with him, he likes that it can easily be put in the boot of his tow car, but his tow car is huge. He even used it to replace a gearbox in the pits https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVMVVHOXJ6Y

At my sons workshop they replace the car lifts pretty often for OH&S reasons, so they offer them to the workers, the main issue is the minimum height for the lifts they use is 4 metres and the maximum height a garage can be and still be a garage for planning regulations is 3 metres. Garages can be closer to a boundary so to get a 4 metre high garage means having a pretty wide block to build a house and garage with the side setbacks required.

However I think legally a lift needs a yearly inspection so he would have to pay for that if he ever got a house with a large enough garage.

I like tidy wall and installed it in my garage. I got it from https://thegarageorganisers.com.au/awalls-tidywall-storage-panels.htm but I expect is a world wide product, google found it in Ireland. To save some money and make the garage look nice I put red painted plywood above and below it. I thought I am not going to hang anything above 2.1 metres or below 0.3 metres. I used rubber floor mats, black in the middle where the cars park and red around the edge. Overall I am happy and would do the same again.

I actually find it less of a faff than the hydraulic lifts and a darn site more practical as it moves easily around the garage with many more uses. Sold my scissor lift as result of using the EZ Lift. Everyone to their own.

I am with Bruce on this. Hydraulics fail once in a while and I would hate to be under it that once in a rare moment it decided to crash down. The EZlift just requires lubing a couple of times a year and can easily be disassembled and put into a station wagon or pickup truck or on a roof rack and moved anywhere. I just hoist mine up against a wall to get it off the floor or drive over it with my Morgan.

Quite happy for people to have different preferences, but it's worth pointing out that a hydraulic lift like this has a fail-safe locking system. It requires a positive 60 psi of air pressure to release the locks and needs somebody to be stood at the control unit holding the down button in constantly while the lift descends.

This doesn't show all the lift, but illustrates why I would recess it into the floorslab next time
