2 post lifts | Car Lift Blog
When Quinn Kizas from the popular YouTube channel Garage Quinn Motors needed a car lift, guess who he called?
If you said ASEdeals, you’re right!
Quinn has a very popular You Tube channel where he performs all kinds of performance modifications to his many cool automobiles and his videos are instructional and quite informative. Quinn has a passion for autos that dates back years, and he recently purchased the ultimate garage that allows him to not only service his vehicles, but also has plenty of room to store all of them.
Check out our video of his garage and our lift below –
Quinn recently changed the name of his You Tube channel to Slip Angle Media.
Once he got the construction phase of his garage complete, it was time to outfit it with the proper tools to service his cars. Priority number 1 was a lift. Quinn did a lot of research before choosing a lift. He does that with every major purchase. He wanted to make sure he got a brand known for quality, and longevity, as well as a superior warranty.
He ultimately decided on a BendPak XPR-9S-LP two post lift for several reasons. His ceilings were too low for a clear floor model with the bar at the top. You need over 12 feet of ceiling height to accommodate a clear floor model. The floor-plate model he chose can fit under ceilings as low as 10 feet.
He also chose the BendPak XPR-9S-LP because it features the low profile arms. These arms make it easier to reach deep under most ultra-low ground clearance sports cars. The arms not only have a slightly lower pad height, but the arms have a lower rectangular shape rather than square, to prevent the arm from hitting the frame of the vehicle before the pad gets to the frame jacking points.
Most folks will probably prefer the standard arms over the low profile arms, as they have a longer reach thanks to a 3 stage front arm. This allows you to reach longer crew cab pick up frame jacking points that you would not be able to reach with the low profile model.
Another great feature for this model that helped Quinn decide to choose it is the fact that you can set it up at a wider setting than typical. This allows you to open the doors wider to help you get in and out of the auto easier after driving in between the posts. But don’t worry, for those of you who have less floor space, you can also set it at a narrow setting as well.

Over the years, Hemmings has come out with various other magazines, all catering to other specialized areas of the car enthusiast interests.

If you have an interest in anything on four wheels, odds are, Hemmings has featured it or discussed in one of their publications.

When Hemmings Motor News needed a car lift for their classic car museum, they contacted ASEdeals because they knew they could count on us to provide them with the best product for their situation, and that we could provide them with the best installation service as well.
When Greg Gordon from Hemmings contacted ASE asking for advice on what type of lift to obtain for their museum, we recommended one of our Bendpak two post lifts. There were many factors that went into offering that recommendation. Bendpak is one of the largest and most popular automotive lift manufacturers on the planet, and their quality is unquestionable. Plus, their lifts are ALI certified, recognized and inspected for their quality and safety standards by the only authority on the subject – The Automotive Lift Institute.
Here’s what Greg had to say when about the Hemmings experience working ASE deals –
“When we decided to convert a section of the Hemmings classic car museum into a functioning shop, one of first pieces of equipment on our list was a lift, and we wanted it to be reliable. BendPak lifts initially appealed to us because of the company’s commercial garage experience and when Automotive Service Equipment directed us the model XP10ACX we felt we had found the right unit. Our lift was professionally installed and we were very impressed with the quality of the unit.
We’ve been using the lift for a few months now and it’s serving us very well, providing exactly what we’ve been looking for. Thank you ASEdeals.com for directing us to the perfect fit for our application”.
Hemmings actually ran an article about the entire experience, including the installation as well.

Now, let’s talk about the Bendpak 2 post lifts.
The Bendpak XPR-10 lifts offer a host of features that you will not find on any of the typical, cookie-cutter hoists out there. They offer a rugged single piece column, with a super tall 53 inch lift carriage for superior strength, and a direct-drive lifting system, which is the most reliable system available.
Double diameter pulleys for the equalizer cables means that cable life is double what it would be on normal lifts. Plus, the frame engaging pads have a rubber saddle cushion to protect the underside of the vehicle frame. Another handy feature on those pads is they have a screw mechanism under them that allow you to adjust the pad height up or down by up to 2.5 inches. In addition to the screw pad capability, the lift also comes standard with a 2.5″ extensions to help reach around running boards, frame members, or pipes to get at automobile jacking points.
Triple telescoping arms in the front of most models allows for more reach when extending the arms to get at longer automobile jacking points, and the capability of setting the lift up at a wide, or a narrow setting adds for great versatility. We recommend setting it up at the wide setting in most situations, as it makes many functions easier, and really doesn’t reduce your capabilities in most situations.
The most popular feature is found on the XPR-10AS. This is the 10,000 lb. capacity asymmetric model. They manufactured it with the added capability to also position the auto symmetric if the need arises. This truly versatile features makes this lift the most popular model of all the Bendpak 2 post lifts.
Bendpak lifts are backed with a 5/2/1 warranty, and don’t worry about parts. They’re always available. Even on older, discontinued models.
So choose the lift that Hemmings chose. And purchase from the dealer that Hemmings chose. If it’s good enough for the finest automotive publication in the USA, then it should be good enough for your garage.
