The Backyard Buddy Classic Extra Tall series has an extra tall 84″ underneath the deck. This special application lift accepts all the standard Backyard Buddy accessories. Double pulley lifting system achieves extra lifting height without adding length to the runways. You must have extra ceiling clearance for this extended height lift.
Our 4-post automotive lifts come with a 5-Year Warranty* on structure, cylinder, power unit, and functional components. The extra 3+ years compared to our competitors could save you hundreds of dollars and provides you with many more years’ worth of service and peace of mind.
You will notice with our 4-post automotive lifts two distinct features; the thickness of the plate, and the location of the post welded on the plate. Having a thick plate prevents warping when welding the posts. By having the post toward the center of the baseplate, (rather than one on the outer edge), it allows for better weight distribution, increasing the stability. While there is an option to anchor the lift, it is recommended that you let the lift remain free standing. Having a free-standing lift provides you with the option to move the lift around inside your garage, or even outside of your garage if conditions allow.
Three new features comprise our enhanced design underneath the power side runway. 1) The cable block rollers have been replaced with durable nylon pads that will not wear as fast as the rollers and are less intrusive, while serving the same purpose. 2) For added convenience, you can adjust the cables underneath from the cable block. 3) The welding of the ramp construction has been enhanced to provide more strength.
Cables and pulleys are one of the most important stability features on all 4-post lifts. Using industrial grade steel cables, pulleys, and axles provides less stress on your operating components, increasing their life span.
Our 4-post automotive lifts include a primary safety lock and a secondary slack cable lock. When raising the lift, you will be able to hear the synchronized locks engaging in each laser cut lock position. If a cable were to fail, for any reason, the secondary lock would engage to prevent the lift from falling. Our double lock design, paired with a single point manual release, will provide you with a safer lifting experience.
Our automotive lifts are produced with industrial grade steel. Providing you with the world-class quality, safety, & strength that we are known for.
This item is proudly produced in the United States. Our welder’s stay current with their certifications to provide you the industry best welds possible. With over 30 years of manufacturing expertise, industrial steel, and certified American welds, each product is constructed in the highest quality possible.
The enclosed posts with laser cut locks provide a solid position for your locks to rest on when working on or storing vehicles. The sliders enhance the stability by encapsulating the post to greatly reduce movement of the lift, which is a common complaint about c-channel lifts.
