Price is ridiculous.

Too many steps involved to make it really something I would pay top dollar for.

In order for him to be out of stock. ..He either only made one prototype or practically gave the other sets away to get his name out there.

Its not necessarily the steps. ( the way he did it was ridiculous no reason you can't do front and back on most vehicles not tire by tire) but your still limited as to what you can do while its on the stands. I feel like in the case when I use jackstands they couldn't be used 75% of the time.  I could see them good for someone to do subframe connectors, but if your a shop doing that many of them you should invest in a 4 post lift.


That makes me think, it would be a much better idea to have one similar, to lift a car front one center point. If the top pad size was made, sized to be able to lift at a smaller area, you could lift one end to do more tasks. The stand would have to be able to support more than 2000lbs though, which is where me first question was aimed, how strong are those locks that automatically allow it to go up.

He needs to hit a price point of around 200 for a set of 4...

I agree.  And I would buy a full set of four at that price and would use them.  One of my brother-in-laws moved to Oregon and took his four post lift with him.

I don't see that happening, not something designed for that kind of weight. A economy version with pins instead of the auto-locking feature might save a little.

I'd probably be willing to pay more like $400 a set, shipped. $600 a set (shipped) is still a bit much. But I can think of a few times where they would have been worth it.

That's not that much weight. WAY back in high school mechanical design class, they tested a plain stamp steel jack stand.  Kind with 3 height holes and slide in pin.  Rated 1 1/2 tons.  IIRC, it wasn't until at least 10,000 pounds before it started giving.  And the failure was the thru hole in the out tube started stretching downward.

He's got 4 pins.. please... lol

That was just vertical force. When things start getting shaken and slammed around the vehicle, load capacity goes down fast.

Regardless of their design, I'm not sure that I'd trust them with with my 6000# truck on them. Its already trashed a couple lighter duty jacks and jack stands.
