Tooling (Lifts)

Samuel Technician Somers Point, New Jersey Posted   Latest  

This is a much more broad and general question....I am in the market for new lifts.....are there any online suppliers that you would specifically recommend for a reliable industry lift....i.e. Challenger, Rotary, Bendpak, etc. Looking to beat the big corporate lift and install price packages....New Jersey area here!

This kind of equipment is an investment in both safety and equipment. Take a look at Mohawk hoists. You can buy cheaper hoists, but not better. Even if you installed used Mohawk lifts, you will never need to repair them.

Thank you for your input....I have never owned a Mohawk lift....I have used them when I was younger...you are correct, there has never been much discussion on repairing them due to the fact that they last.

I worked at the local Ford dealer near you and we had a 26,000 lb 2 post mohawk. If you would like to see how well built they are you could probably stop by. Talk to Chuck in parts I'm sure he can set it up for you. We also had 18K 15K 12K rotary 2 posts and some 10K in grounds as well. We used Brooks Hydraulics for the rotary installs. He always took care of us. The Mohawk was from a guy

In my experience, I have found that pricing from my local dealers is usually the best available, plus buying from them buys a relationship that provides benefits for many years. I think that your value proposition is skewed by irrational thinking, which results from the craze of website shopping.

I would also recommend that whatever brand you pick has some approved certification like ANSI/ALI.

If you want the best that will last longer than you, buy Mohawk. My second choice would be Rotary.

Stick with Mohawk. I have 3 and they all work very well with zero issues. Also if you purchase new they normally have a 25 year warranty. Sometimes a dealer will give you a warranty on a used one. Call … Tell Ross that Mike from M&M in Montague sent you.
