Ed - actually thats almost 4 times what I paid for my bend pac, granted its only 10k - but for home use, it's perfect. And the only sheetmetal parts are 'covers' and even they're 1/8" thick.rb667.
the very best american made two post lift is made by mohawk resources in amsterdam ny. no other lift comes close. they are not cheap but like always you get what you pay for. i just had a 15,000 lb lift delivered and installed for around 8500 dollars. thats twice what you can buy a rotary or bend pac for.
