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/ETL Certified (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! .....
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.
For a limited time, get your choice of Weaver Graphics Lift Decal set included. Choose between Flames or Pinstripes when ordering.
Question: How much ceiling height clearance will I need to stack my cars?
Answer: Add the height of your vehicles together, then add 7" to that total. Note: The maximum bottom vehicle height is 79.00" for the Pro Park 8 Plus and the Pro Park 9 Plus. The Pro Park 8 Standard would be 67.00".

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

My installation is in a standard sized bay with a ceiling height of just over 9 feet. The DirectLift product is clearly the best of the available options. Although smaller in size and capacity it has construction quality, functionality and safety features typically found only in larger lifts. Add in the very reasonable price and it is an excellent solution for most hobbyist and restorers.

Ordered the PP8S on a Wednesday, arrived on Friday. Instructions need a bit of improvement, but was able to read through it. Cables already routed through the pulleys from the piston end but cable ends will not pass through the ramps unless you remove pulleys. Really appreciate Doug's help with selection and shipping.

Great staff! They expedite your order and get you the best shipping price they can, even if it entails extra time on their part! We love our lift and have shared our experience with our customers and friends of whom some purchased one of their own from Derek Weaver too! It is the best quality for the best price out there! I did months of research to find a certified lift. Easy assembly! They are the best hands down!
