08/06/2018: Due to higher import taxes Twin Busch raised the price $350. It is now reflected in the pricing.
I've had two life-long garage dreams. One being a super legit air compressor and the other is a lift, specifically a scissor lift. Despite how it may seem on the Obsessed Garage YouTube channel, this pursuit of the things I'm sharing hasn't happened overnight. I get a lot of questions why I don't have something. For example, "Why don't you have a Quick Jack?" Generally I'd rather wait and attempt to do it right rather than to do things half way. I've found that even with hours and hours of research and careful planning, there is an eventual leap of faith that has to happen.
I've chosen this lift for a few reasons.
Cost: This lift reminds me a lot of Saber Cabinets. Is this the best lift in world? The answer is no. But the balance of price to quality is very high. The result is beyond acceptable to me.
Support: The guys at Twin Busch pick up the phone. That was a big factor because I had a feeling despite all this research, the install was going to require some help.
The install process is rather straightforward, but I would highly suggest you watch the videos below. The German translated directions have a lot of stuff either lost in translation or lack the explanation you would need if you've never done this before.
Here are some things to note:
This needs an air compressor connected to it to release the locks. You'll need to go to Home Depot to get a plug and coupler that fits your air hose.
These come with 7" long concrete anchors. You may want to get some shorter ones. 5/8" is the size and masonry drill bit you will want.
