Nicely done. I have been looking into a product that requires no drilling.

Hey Jim, good thing I moved that driver's side I-Beam out further. There's only 1/2" clearance between the piston and garage door opener! Got lucky.

Cost was $2000 from Garage Equipment Supply. $130 for lift-gate service -- half of which was reimbursed since I practically unloaded it off the trunk myself.
A beam supports horizontally.
A column supports vertically.

Noted. Thx. (I changed my original post to reference "column".)

As far as tear-down and storing, I don't plan to find out until winter time approaches the midwest.

Sorry to revive an aging thread, but I'm considering installing a MaxJax in my garage. How do you know what the compressive strength is of your garage floor? I know it's supposed to be 3000 psi per Dannmar's specs. Same with the thickness of the concrete, how can you tell?

Thanks, gents. Happy New Year!

Maybe there is a local code your floor was poured to? Or check with some local concrete companies for their standard pour around the time you place was built. Also if the spec calls for 3000PSI, wouldn't a 12 x 12 inch section be able to hold 144 x 3000? So if the lift weighs 1000 and the car 3000 I'd guess something less than 3000PSI would be ok.

Call Seneca Companies here in DM. They could survey the site for you and tell you whether or not the hoist would work.
