|Car Ramp Plans UK||24th August 2016|
It’s nice to be near the job, but not with your nose touching!Using the traditional method to lift a vehicle for the home mechanic, utilizing a trolley jack and axle stands has many drawbacks.
The most predominate issue arise's from the lack of space, to comfortably and safely manoeuvre or contort your body underneath the vehicle, once it is lifted and placed on axle stands.
Working in a confined space, takes its toll on our bodies over a period of time, back and neck strain, grazed knuckles, and many bruises are common from just trying to perform the most simple of tasks on the underside of a vehicle.
Many modern day vehicles have under trays fitted to the engine bay region and some completely cover the entire under chassis, from front to back.They need to be removed first, to uncover the chassis sections or axles to provide a good location for the saddle of the trolley jack and the location of the axle stands to rest on.
All factory built vehicles normally come with four lifting points located on the sill area. When you take your vehicle to a professional garage for an MOT, service or for a tyre change, they will have a varied range of lifting equipment, to quickly and efficiently raise the vehicle up to the required height to do the work. One and two post lifts have arms that swing out and locate on the lifting points.
Scissor lifts can lift either on the sills or as the common four post lift, all four wheels.
The picture below shows a modern professional tyre and wheel fitting company located in London in the UK, using American manufactured high-quality scissor lifts, which have been flush-fitted into the floor, so to accommodate any low ground clearance hyper performance cars, like Ferrari, Lamborghini or for ultra low race or track cars.
How about working on your vehicle in a much better position, rather than just flat out!Yes! that sounds good, if I had the money and space, I would build a large workshop and kit it out with the equipment like the trades people use.
As I only have a very small percentage of both of the above, are there any viable options?
The answer to that question is a big YES!
