2 post lift for <$2000?

They all look to be "CE certified". Why should I pick one no-name brand over the other? Looking for open floor 9k for non commercial use. Couple vehicles a week type of thing, may grow in future. Will be on 18" beams, so not worried about the concrete.

Been to auctions and searching for used, havent seen anything I'd call a deal.

Examples:

TRIUMPH NTO-9AE Economy 9000Lbs Two Post Clear Floor Lift https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QHEUWC4..._6S-DDb5SRZCX4

I've had this one for about 7 years now
https://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-9KOHX

When i bought it, it was around $1800 so its gone down a little bit, but i have not had a single issue with it. I use it almost daily. Way more than the average home owner, only slightly less than a commercial shop would.
I mainly use it for my buggy/crawler projects, but also for oil changes on a light civic DD and my 3 door long bed chevy 2500 has been on it a couple dozen times over the years.
No complaints other than i wish i had another.

FYI, 'CE certified' means nothing. It's exactly like 'DOT compliant'- the manufacturer states that it meets these specifications. It does not require outside testing. We put it on some machines we built for a client in Europe, after researching the relevant specs.

My son-in-law and I (I helped install) just put a 2-post in his shop earlier this summer. He upgraded to 12K. I can't remember the details or price but I'll get the info.
Nice set up, not too difficult to install. We have used the piss out of it (like, had 3 vehicles on it the first day!), no complaints.
I'll be back with info
More info: it is 11,000 lb. Much beefier than the std. 9K lift (which was ~$1,900)
List on the 11K was about $3,100 but S-I-L got it for $2,600
He wasn't at his shop so we don't remember the brand (It's Blue jsyk!)
ymmv

I've got a 10k super symetric (does both style of arms) from GregSmith. Delivered to the shipping terminal was right around $2800 I think.

Couldn't be happier with it. Lifts my 02 Duramax ccsb just fine and is stable. Would buy again. I think all the offshore ones come from the same place anymore.

I have the exact same one, about the same price, but in a baseplate version due to my low shop ceiling. Still happy with it.

I have the 10k version of that one. IF you have the room go extra wide. I have the asymmetric arms, and they are handy for some cars, and pain for others. I am debating getting a set of symmetric arms too, well have been for the last 8 years...

Zero issues with it, everything from lawn mowers, to crew cab F350 dump body trucks.

Good point, i should have mentioned going with the wide kit. It really does help with opening doors.

This thread should be a sticky in the shop/tool area.

Good info for others contemplating buying a lift.

I have basically this one only assymetric arms
https://www.toolots.com/qy201-8800lb...lift-220v.html
I got it for $1500 new in crate at an auction, love it. Only thing I would do is find some better concrete anchors than the china ones that came with it. Overhead cable would be nice but the plate on the floor isn't too annoying.

I took some harbor freight steel ramps and welded them together spaced with angle iron to make a drive on lawn mower lift that fits on the arms, very handy.

I paid ~1200 for a used challenger years ago, lost it in divorce.

The Chinese stuff has come a long way, I'd consider one.

FWIW I bought a tire machine from "mayflower" and had it shipped to the terminal. I'm really happy with the quality, had a small piece broken in shipping, they sent me a new piece in 2 maybe 3 days. They also sell lifts, I'd consider one.
