    Looking at a 4-5T 4 post hoist. Came across these HAPP Hoists. A HAPP 27 5T 4 poster. Price $5,300 in GST. Does anyone have this brand of hoist? Any feedback?
    Are they a "good thing?" Thanks in advance.

    Very.

    Looks really well made / sturdy.

    I've used hoists that lift the car quicker, but if you aren't using it everyday in a workshop environment it's fine.

    It can even lift a car!:

    That appears to be a standard height garage?

    It's about a metre taller than standard. I can comfortably walk around underneath it no problem, and if I need a little more height I can close the door to get a bit extra.

    Hey, if I wanted to get a little lubrication action going with my hoist, and wanted to buy some grease from a Supercrap Auto or somewhere else where the 14yo employee won't know what "grease" or "hoist" are, what sort of grease should I be looking for? I've got some bearing grease, and some nolathane suspension grease which I think would be a waste, but is there something in particular I should be looking for?

    This is for the safety interlocks, the spring-loaded interlock has a tendency to lock against the carrier just with friction when there's little weight on the hoist (and a Mk1 Escort shell without even doors on it isn't exactly weighty!) so I was thinking I should grease the bits of metal that are touching. That carrier has notches in it, the spring-loaded interlock pushes against the carrier until it reaches a notch, then the spring pushes the interlock into that notch & the interlock is shaped such that the hoist can only go upwards not downwards. I don't think grease can affect the lock mechanism itself, as that doesn't rely on friction in any way, it's the weight of the carrier+car resting on the interlock.

    Cal, if you have limited space front-to-rear don't install an asymmetric hoist (like I did)! The posts get installed about half-a-metre from the centre, and you end-up with a situation where you can't swing the arms into position because the wheels are in the way. The Volvo is probably worse than most cars because the crumple-zones mean the car is heaps longer than the wheelbase.

    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    All in and done - works great - very happy.

    assembled with two guys, an engine hoist & a couple of ladders - most tedious part was probably the drilling all the mount holes and bashing fuck out of the dynabolts to get them down.

    pedant mode -
    Instructions don't say which bolts go where & when.. so had to figure that out (scratched head for at least 5 mins) - same for the arm rotation stoppers ( a nice photo of the assembled piece in the instructions would be all that's required)
    aligning the posts was a bit tricky - not sure there is a fix for that - we ended up using a stringline and tape measure and got it bang on.
    two of the arms have a very slight angle on the flat mounts for the rubber bushy lifty things.

    ^^^ totally pedantic shit - all in all very happy, none of that affects function in any way.

    GREAT VALUE
    GREAT PRODUCT

    Why did you use outriggers? I thought you had a thick slab to mount them on. I know one of your mates he was telling me about his mate that has this mad ute and just got hoists at his house lol I just said cool and never mentioned I knew who you were. Although I can't remember if I ever met you in person.

    interesting - mick?

    they were cheap - not in the way, and my patrol is 3 tonne.. i couldn't think of a good reason to not put them in - probably/definitely overkill, but im ok with that.



    garv - they go over the base plate of the column, and the column bolts go through it..

    No Matt. I have put 4 tonne on hoists that are only bolted with 5 bolts and changed the springs and had them rocking once you get scared the first time and see how well the hoist takes it you get used to it.

    I can narrow them up to 200mm reasonably easy. Or you can choose your own width with the 90 or 95.

    Might be a completely newb question, but what granularity is there on the lift height on the HAPP 90s - is it 1500 or nothing, or can it lift from ground to 1500 in increments.

    Reason I ask is that I'm likely to have a ~2.9-3m roof height in the front garage I'm building.

    Safety latches every 80mm starting from around 700mm (I think but pretty close - maybe starting lower).
