I got the low profile floor jack today for $89 with coupon and the ramps for 25% off.

You could, they're only about 2" tall when fully lowered.

mine was shipped for around $2000 + HST from costco.ca Was about the best price around for a Maxjax at that time.

It is rated for 6000lbs. I have worked on our q7 TDI with it... It barely fits, arms are fully extended...

Runs on standard 110v, the pump is now mounted on the back wall, and I added extra hoses that go up to the ceiling.

I get 48-54 inches of lift depending on what pads I use, and if I add a hockey puck or 2.

Pic of old q7 halfway up on lift... it has 2 height safety settings 24" and the 48" one The q7 can go up to the heigher height, as I have a 10' ceiling in the garage.

Nice!!! One of these days I'm going to get around to cleaning my garage, levelling the floor, and then....!!

Speaking of the floor, looks like you poured "special" concrete for the MaxJax stands (?). Did you have to hammer out the existing concrete?

My vehicles have always been very big and heavy so that left me out when it came to the light duty lifts. Thinking about one now though, but it would still have to allow room to park my Superduty or my Express 3500 over it...they get the garage at night and the TDI sits outside next to the Infiniti FX-35.

MaxJax needs 4" of good concrete to hold the wedge anchors. I drilled a test hole with a 1/2" bit and measured, and I was just at 4", however I rented a SDS drill and 1"(?) bit to do the actual holes, and the hammer action of that drill may have broke out some of the concrete on the bottom side. Left me with about 3.75"

I talked with Dammar and ran my plan to cut out a 3x4' section under each post. I dug down and made each section 12" deep and dug out from under the floor about 4" on all sides to lock the new concrete to the old floor.

Each post now sits on a pier each measuring 3x4x1'. It's been fine for the past the 7+ years. If your garage floor is 4+" thick and good compression rating, you should be fine.

I did the concrete work myself, rented a concrete saw, and bought a small load of mixed concrete. The concrete added about $500 to the lift cost.

With recent memory and consistent memory jars, how would the two point [in the concrete] and the four point [base of the car] do in a magnitude 7.0? I'm still getting the willies each time I'me even in the garage working on the interior with the car on the floor if an aftershock hits. Are there stabilization alternatives?

Isn't that what the rubber hockey pucks are for?

I don't know what the earthquake rating is.

I also have jackstands that extend up to 60" if I'm doing something like hanging off a big breaker bar
