Default Track Jack Portable Pit Lift



It is made by Bendpak and supposed to come in under $1,000 with everything you need. They look pretty light and easy to store in your trailer at the track. I may be picking one of these up if they work well.

I would buy this for my garage. It is really narrow, so this would be perfect!

Doesn't have the capacity to lift my other vehicles, or it'd be on order by now.

I can't really imagine this being too much quicker than my floor jack at getting the Miata in the air.

And? The whole point of this is to put it under your car and be done in one step and one device. If you use a normal jack, you have to jack up each side separately and then place jackstands. With this, its one and done and higher than being on jackstands.

Let us know how well it works out btw!

OK if working on the corners of the car, but what if you need to crawl underneath?

All clear underneath. Skip to the end of the video for an under-car view.

That reminds me of the lifts we used to build for lifting Foruma cars
