What is Super-Symmetric and how does it load either asymmetric or symmetric? This unique arm style utilizes 3-stage front arms and typical 2-stage rear arms. The 3-stage front arms allow asymmetric loading when the front arms are near fully retracted and symmetric loading when the front arms are near fully extended. Short enough for wide unibodys yet long enough to reach the frame on framed vehicles.
This commercial grade 2-Post Lift has an overall height of only 111" (9' 3") which will fit under a 10' ceiling. Stack pad height adapters ( 1 1/2", 3" and 6") are also included to adjust pad heights for various vehicles including trucks. Also included is a set of 4 Frame Adapters that are typically sold as optional equipment from other brands.
The W-9F is a floor plate style lift with rubber door guards for added vehicle protection. The columns are positioned symmetric (straight) with Super-Symmteric arms that allow the most flexibility for loading either asymmetric* or symmetric lifting points. Our unique Single Point Lock System features dual locks in each column thus allowing operation from the operating column. No need to unlock both sides as typically found on other base plate style lifts.
States Derek Weaver, "Quality, Durability and Affordability or it wouldn't wear the Weaver® Lift label. This is an extreme value when compared to the prices some companies want to charge. Get more here and Get It Up".
*Note: Asymmetric loading may be limited on some vehicles by floor cover. Front 3-Stage arm may not swing across the floor cover.
5-year structural warranty, 1-year hydraulic cylinder and 1-year warranty on power unit. Affordably priced for the commercial shop or enthusiast garage.

Finally sprung for this lift after looking at a picture of it on the wall in the shop for a few years. Should have just done it. Easy enough to transport on a 18' flat bed car trailer, was able to unload it using some HF furniture dollies and an engine crane. Easy enough to install, not terribly technically difficult. I was able to raise the posts myself with just an engine crane. I used an HF hammer drill and a Bosch SDS bit from a home center - made quick work of the holes. If you have a "flat" floor you'll be mildly surprised how many shims you may need. There were plenty in the box for mine. I did mis-route the safety latch cable, but the hydraulics make short work of any errors so figured that noise out real quick. Just had to go buy a fresh length of wire rope and some terminations. Ran it up and down a few times to check adjustments, then put the 3000 lb 1970 Mustang on it and up it went. That car is a bugger to R&R headers on with a jack and floor stands - not anymore. Hey look, those header gaskets are leaking out the bottom. My ceiling is only 8' in the lift area so the posts actually stick up through the ceiling. Later I'll remove/modify the ceiling over the lift and even with a 5:12 rafter pitch I should be able to get our race cars up enough to walk under. Mustang now gets to 49" off the floor with about 3" to spare under the ceiling - just enough to get it off the locks. Can roll under the car on a short work stool. Great tool, treat yourself.

Installation was pretty smooth and lifted a full size Dodge truck no problem, so far it is awesome and wonder how I did without a lift for so long.Fit in my garage with 11 ft ceilings really great!

The Weaver has exceeded our expectations. Productivity has increased which in turn has increased profits.

Much like the previous reviews, the product is great. It works great right from the start, and looks great in my garage. I'm not a professional, just a guy lucky enough to be able to put a lift in my garage for my own use. Like the other reviews have stated, the instructions leave something to be desired, especially the routing of the cables (both the main lift cables, as well as the safety latch cable). This is mainly due to poor pictures in the included manual, which are not much better in the online PDF manual. Also, when you wire the unit (I hard-wired mine, with the power line coming down from the ceiling to the unit so keep the floor uncluttered), be sure to watch the online video about wiring it, versus using the instructions in the manual. I also had to fabricate a few additional shims out of large fender washers because I did not have enough using the shims that were provided. No big deal, they worked fine. I was able to install it with some help from my adult son (I picked it up on a 6' x 12' trailer), and once it was unpacked we moved it off by sliding it on some of the cardboard packing material. We were able to put the columns upright by lifting them up, but be advised, they are HEAVY. Two strong guys will work, three would have been better. Measure twice, then measure twice again, before drilling, and I used a laser to make sure they were square side to side. Once it was done, after a few practice runs (it comes down by relieving pressure so without a load it might take a while, or need some help), I put my Dodge Rame 2500 Diesel on it and it worked great, the truck adapters really coming in handy. On smaller vehicles, like my Miata, the asymmetric arms take a little planning. I find I have to pull the car forward, swing the front arms under and back, then back the car up to swing the rear arms in place. And the Lift Pads, even with the arms in the completely short position, are still too long, but it's not a problem if you simply put a block on the arm where you want to lift the car. If you don't work on small vehicles, probably not an issue.
Overall, though, I do love it. It is nice to have the ability to do work on the vehicles without crawling around under it on my back. And with my ceiling being 12'6" high, I gave been able to lift my cars high enough that I can walk under them without ducking. I would recommend this lift without hesitation, and I can't wait to tackle the projects I have planned for with this lift in mind.

Better than advertised. Will be buying another in the spring. Would recommend it to anyone. Quality excellent. Price fair. Installation instructions could be clearer. Works from my Crosleys to one ton pickup.

Purchased the lift and it was delivered to Maine in 2 days. Installed the lift over a two day period. The lift appears to be of excellent quality with good welds and most of the hardware cad plated. My only gripe was the directions. The photographs are a bit vague and the text is poorly written. The poor directions required some rework do to the lack of clarity. Overall it operates perfectly. I have lifted everything from a Ford Fiesta to a F150 with no problems. If the directions were bit better 5 stars for sure.

Built a small garage to do vehicle maintenance as my house garage ceilings were too low to get a modern truck in. Decided early on to install a two post lift and though this lift was not the cheapest it is a great lift that does everything the company says and is made with high quality. installation was easy and have already used it for several vehicles. Next is the total restoration of a 37 ford. Great lift from a great company.

I have owned and operated a tire dealership for many years. I built a shop at the house for my old car restorations. Doug at Weaver lifts is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The quality is first rate and head and shoulders above the Chinese lifts that have flooded the market. You can call with any questions and the lift will exceed your expectations! Many thanks to Doug in sales and Mr. Derek Weaver for all the help!

Bought this model based more on ceiling clearance than price which was still very competitive. Once the unit was available, shipping and delivery was quick and efficient. Agree with others that the biggest hurdle for the DIYer will be the offload and tower handling. Once the towers were up, remainder of installation was straightforward. Be aware the routing diagram from the manufacturer for the hydraulic hose coming from the pump is wrong. It needs to go through the bottom of the tower, not around it. Also, fill cap for hydraulic reservoir is SMALL. Get one of those inexpensive orange transfer hand pumps. Trying to pour from a five gallon hydraulic fluid container into a small funnel will not turn out well. Still getting the hang of positioning the arms with height adapters for different vehicles but I'm still kicking myself for not getting one of these years ago.

I have only owned this lift for 2 weeks and so far I couldn't be more satisfied. Customer service was great during the order process. I picked it up some what locally (3 hr drive up). This thing on a pallet weighs 12 to 1400 LBS so be prepared. I disassembled the lift on my trailer and lifted the columns with a engine hoist. I pre positioned the columns and set them in place. I did all this by myself so if you have a helper it should go easier and faster. Followed the directions (that could use a re-write) the internet directions help a little more. Assembled the lift in about a day. Anchoring was the most time consuming (get a good hammer drill and it goes allot easier). Stopped at my local supply store and picked up 4 gal of #46 grade hyd fluid.(remember 4 gal or you'll be making 2 trips like I did) tank will hold about 3 gals. Wired the pump with #10/2 and 30 AMP breaker. Applied power and up she went. Worked as advertised. I ran the lift up a few times to bleed the air then I got one of my trucks and lifted it up to the ceiling. Did that a few times to bleed the air out, Presently I couldn't be happier. I have no complaints. Very pleased.
