The Direct-Lift® Pro-Park 8 Standard (Model PP8SPY11) Four Post Automotive Lift is America’s #1 Enthusiast Car Lift.  The Direct-Lift® brand has sold over 100,000 lifts to the enthusiast market and is part of the worlds largest lift manufacturer (Dover Corp.).  Direct-Lift® is the officiaI lift of the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions.  

Our Direct-Lift®Pro Park 8 Standard 4 Post Lift is the only ALI/ETLCertified (OSHA Recognized) lift in its class.  Being "tested and certified" to the OSHA recognized USA automotive lift standard removes any confusion when compared to other lifts and provides the ultimate stamp of approval for many buyers seeking a Pro-Park style lift. So much so, that the Pro-Park Series of lifts have earned the #1 sales position in its class since 2002.  Are there less expensive lifts on the market?  Oh you bet, Buyer Beware! .....



Compare these 3 important considerations before you purchase your next car lift:

  1. Has the lift been "tested and certified" by ETL to the rigid USA lift standards?  All of the Pro-Park Series lifts have been tested and validated as "Certified" by the nationally recognized ETL testing lab to meet or exceed the current USA ALI/ETL standards.
  2. Is the manufacturer known and where is it made?  Most lifts sold to compete with the Direct-Lift® Pro-Park Series are imports that are being brought in from unknown manufacturers at slightly lower prices.  These companies do not conform to the USA lifting standards and therefore guess at rated capacities. It is unknown whether these companies are even insured in the USA (it should be vital that you ask these questions).  All Direct-Lift® models are owned and manufactured by the Fortune 300 Dover Corp.'s Vehicla Service Group (NYSE:DOV) based here in the USA. VSG/Dover has ISO-certified manufacturing plants worldwide to compete in the global market.  VSG/Dover is the largest lift manufacturer in the world and also owns the Rotary® Lift, Forward® Lift, and Revolution Lift brands.  You simply cannot buy from a more stable and reliable company based here and insured here in the USA.
    *VSG/Dover has "Hundreds of Thousands" of lifts and service racks installed in vehicle repair shops worldwide.  Currently selling over 50,000 units per year.  More than any other manufacturer.
  3. What is the warranty and availability of parts?  All of our Direct-Lift® models carry a 5 year parts warranty and a 1 year warranty on the power unit and hydraulic cylinder.  Parts are inventoried here at our warehouse with a large, multi-million dollar backup at the Direct-Lift® headquarters in Madison, Indiana. Our headquarters owns and utilizes an automated 7 Tower REMSTAR inventory management and parts distribution system with a 99.5% accuracy.  This large investment is unmatched in the lift industry and rivals many systems used by the car companies.  Shipments are made daily in a very timely fashion. Most parts orders are shipped within 24 hours of order.  Rest assured, no other lift company comes close to this level of commitment to customer service.


The Pro-Park 8 Standard 4 Post Lift includes the same commercial style "Double Lock Ladder Leveling System" and secondary backup safety locks as used on our commercial grade Pro-Park 8 Plus, Pro-Park 9 and Pro-14 Lift models. This NEW STYLE Pro-Park 8 Standard auto lift also has a lifting height of 72" and clears 68" under the runway. The Direct-Lift® Pro-Park 8 Standard has the ability to level your runways while in the locked position. Only the Revolution Lift by Rotary® Lift Consolidated offers this same leveling and locking capability and has the same style backup secondary safety lock system.

All other lifts on the market, including Backyard Buddy, Complete Hydraulics, Danmar, Atlas, AutoLift and others do not provide for leveling the lift while resting in the locked position NOR are they Certified to the rigid OSHA recognized ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011 automotive lift standards. To validate this claim, ALI requires the lift to be 3rd party tested by the nationally recognized ETL testing lab and engineers. All of our Pro-Park Models have passed this validation process and earned the right to wear the certification label pictured above.

"The Double Lock Ladder Safety System" on the Pro-Park 8 Standard four post lift allows you to level the lift to an unlevel floor while being in the locked position. Our competitors are not capable of being level on an unlevel floor while in the locked position which is how you use any car lift correctly. They can only be locked in lock positions that are not adjustable which leaves your vehicle locked only as level as your floor (assuming their lock positions were welded or cutout accurately). The Pro-Park 8 Standard not only solves the problem of leveling but also has a unique backup secondary lock. Should a cable go into a slack condition for any reason, the secondary lock will engage automatically.

The Pro-Park 8 Standard gives you all the features of our high-end commercial 4-post lifts at a very special Direct price. Included with the Pro-Park 8 Standard car lift are a Free Caster Kit with Poly Casters, (4) Free Drip Trays and a Free Jack Tray. An optional Pro-Jack is also available to provide wheels free service. The typical installation time is approximately 4-5 hours.

The Pro-Park 8 Standard is manufactured in our ISO-9001 & CE certified manufacturing facility and backed by a 5 year parts warranty and a 1 year warranty for the hydraulic power unit/cylinder system.  Direct-Lift® is a Vehicle Service Group company which is a subsidiary of the Fortune 500 Dover Corporation (NYSE:DOV) which is the Largest motorcycle/auto/truck lift manufacturer in the world. Customer service and support after the sale is the best in the business.

  1. Direct-Lift® Pro-Park 8 Standard Certified 4 Post Car Lift 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Nov 2015

    I conversed with Derek Weaver several times inquiring about the Pro Park 8. They were very helpful with my numerous questions on shipping etc. I did a lot of research prior to choosing which lift I was going to purchase and it came down to price and certification. I have a 68' Camaro & 65' AC Cobra 427 Replica that were going to share a garage. I wanted a lift that was redundant on safety and able to give me peace of mind. This one gave me both. I ordered online and lift arrived at freight company in two days. This thing is heavy so a two axle trailer that is at least 18' long is recommended. I got it home and together in about 5 hours. I needed help lifting the runways onto the cross members which required 3 other guys to help. My wife even came out to help lift parts into place. I had one warranty issue, one of the cables had frays in it, I made a claim with pictures & within days a new cable arrived at my home. That is called service. This thing is built very sturdy, I Love my new lift and am extremely happy.

  2. It's awesome!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Nov 2015

    For 1/10th the cost of building on to my garage I got the solution I needed and it's fun to play with too!!

  3. Pro Park 8S round two 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2015

    I purchased a ProPark lift from Derek several years back and when it came time to sell the house, the lift was leverage for the buyer so I had to let it go.
    I promised myself I would order another one as soon as my new place was ready, so I did.
    This version has the revised ability to level the lift while the floor is not which is great.
    I love this lift and plan to never let this one get away.
    I highly recommend Derek and DirectLift to any and everyone.

  4. Very Satisfied 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Oct 2015

    The lady I ordered my lift from was very knowledgeable and very helpful. She even recommended a local company to assemble the lift. I could have probably assembled it but the two men who assembled it were accustomed to assembling this lift and it still took the two of them almost six hours. Plus they had the equipment to handle the heavy parts.

    I am very satisfied with this lift. I have a 11 ft ceiling in my workshop and had to raise my garage door opener and change the slope of the rails on one of my garage doors which probably took about an hour. I can now raise the car on top to within about 6" of the garage door raill. This gives me plenty of room for the car parked on the bottom. I'm actually looking forward to changing the oil in one of my cars. I won't have to jack them up and roll under the front end to change the oil.

    I received my lift about two business days after ordering. Which tells me the lift was probably shipped out the day I ordered it. The lift is comprised of superior quality material.

  5. I did it myself 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2015

    I was amazed at how well everything fit. Outside of figuring out how to move the components into position, putting it together was a breeze. I did have to take apart and redo one end because the instructions don't tell you how things should be oriented. Overall, very happy.

  6. No Regrets 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2015

    This lift met all expectations and works great. Easy assembly even with directions that could be improved. It is saving me about $150 a month since I no longer pay to store one of my classic Mustangs. I can now clean the underside of my vehicles without a "creeper". Delivery was fast and Derek Weaver representatives were very helpful.

  7. This is a back saver... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2015

    No hype here. Quality construction and materials. Competitive pricing.

  8. Pro Park 8 ***** 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2015

    Very well Designed and constructed, and gives Me comfort knowing I can be safely under it with it being certified, I like the dollies, allows me to position it so I can raise My 1929 Model A fords up between shop rafters and still pull my 66 Mustang under, assembled by my self using engine hoist, and 2 car dollies

  9. Very well constructed lift. Pro Park 8 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2015

    I shopped a lot of lifts, wanted a certified lift. Derek Weaver Co. has the best. Pick up from warehouse in NC and istalled it myself with my engine hoist. Could not be happier or more satisfied. Best deal on a Certified 4 post lift.

  10. Big Bang for the Buck! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2014

    After doing lots of homework, I decided that I wanted the Pro Park 8 Standard. It was my good fortune to live near the Derek Weaver warehouse so I was able to examine it closely and see it in operation. I purchased it soon thereafter and arranged to have a third party deliver and set up the lift.

    The setup went fairly smoothly and overall I am very happy with the lift. It is sturdy and appears to be of quality construction. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the lift had a number of scratches incurred during shipping and a couple of missing bolts. I do not fault Derek Weaver Co. for this. This was the responsibility of the manufacturer, not the distributor.

    To their credit, both Derek and Carol were very responsive to my needs. They promptly contacted Direct Lift and had the bolts, touch-up paint, and some replacement decals (also damaged in shipping) dropped-shipped to me in a timely manner.

    I strongly recommend Derek Weaver Co. for any sort of car lift needs you have. They are honest and straightforward and keenly interested in customer service.

    Side note: I purchased a bracket that allows you to mount the pump motor and reservoir on the front side of the left front post instead of the side of the post. Depending on your garage space and configuration, this is a very good and relatively cheap upgrade. We gained almost a foot of additional clearance between the two cars on the "ground floor" of our garage.
