Best Car Hoist Reviews
The internet is full of car hoist reviews from businesses, individual bloggers and even car forums. The best reviews are the ones that provide detailed analysis of the hoist, and they give clear reasons for their support or negative outlook. Most of the time, a review site will list multiple brands, often identifying their "critic's pick" or ranking the lifts they like best. Many include a pros/cons list to help you break down the features that might matter most to you. To get you started, here are some more ways to find the best car hoist reviews.
Best portable hoist
Alltopguide published the Top 5 Best Portable Car Lifts in 2018, and we're happy to see BendPak's 6,000-lb capacity MD-6XP mid-rise scissor lift made the list as the #1 overall portable car hoist. It's actually the only BendPak on that list, yet we're surprised our incredibly popular and well-received QuickJack was excluded from this particular ranking. All the same, you can't beat first place in someone's "best car hoist review."
The article notes how easy the MD-6XP is to move around, as well as its overall strength, efficiency and variable voltage configurations. The only "con" listed is price, which is not necessarily a bad thing. When you think of BendPak, we want you to know you're getting the best value in the industry, but we don't want you to think of a "value" hoist in terms of it being cheap. In other words, value sometimes implies that sacrifices had to be made in the safety, quality, warranty and/or level of customer service, none of which apply to BendPak. If getting the best portable lift means you pay a little more for a better, longer-lasting product, as well as excellent customer service, then we promise BendPak has as much value as you can wrap your head around.
Best four-post lift
365daysreview has an article called the Top 8 4 Post Car Lifts 2017 Reviews, which we're happy to say includes three BendPak hoists. While other hoists are rated as "difficult to install," BendPak's sole knock against it, at least according to the site, is price. Like any designer fashion piece or high-end sports car, you're paying a bit more for our attention to detail and quality. You save more in the long run when you go with BendPak, and our customers regularly attest to that fact. The majority of reviews of the best car hoists include BendPak as the best possible choice for a reason: our quality, durability and longevity are more important factors than price alone. In fact, BendPak consistently takes the top spot on these lists, including this cherry ranking as the best four-post hoist.
Best two-post hoist
ToolGuyReviews offers another awesome review of two-post hoists, the Best 2 Post Car Hoist Reviews in 2018, and it features two BendPak hoists. The reviewer of this article actually features the XPR-10 two-post hoist twice, once in symmetrical configuration and once in asymmetrical configuration. There's no "better" option between the two; if you prefer center-loading, get symmetrical, and if you prefer a little more door clearance, go with asymmetrical. It's interesting to note that the XPR-10 series and MD-6XP (listed above) are two of our most commonly purchased and talked-about hoists. We're not surprised to see professional reviewers name it as the best two-post hoist.
Don't forget the car forums
BendPak offers a great read on how to get true Value when buying a hoist. Number 15 on that list is "Sign up for car forums and see what people are saying." The GarageJournal forum has enough user reviews of auto hoists and garage equipment to keep you occupied for hours. We prefer GarageJournal to many other threads because the audience is respectful, knowledgeable and has no patience for "trolling" or ranting for no reason. All vehicle types, garage sizes and income levels are found here. When it comes to cars and garages, this is where the educated come to get educated.
When some of the most popular car aficionados on the web are choosing BendPak, you know there's a reason. These folks care deeply about their image for a very good reason (it's how they make their money). So, they don't want to be seen with lower-quality equipment in their garage or have it featured in their videos. YouTuber Tavarish installed a BendPak HD-9 four-post hoist and wrote an awesome review of his experience. TJ Hunt, another popular mechanic, has a lot of fun but trusts BendPak for his serious lifting needs. One of the heavyweight car guys on the scene, Cleetus McFarland, loves his BendPak almost as much as he loves racing. He has host of other BendPak / Ranger equipment, including a spray wash cabinet and Autostacker parking lift. EricTheCarGuy is yet another established DIY'er and was ecstatic when he got his XPR-10AS-LP two-post hoist, and Tom's Turbo Garage is a proud recipient of a BendPak hoist of his own. The list goes on.
