    Got the hoist up and test run over past few weekends. Can say i am impressed at the quality for price of the Haap 40. Its not far behind the molnar and rotary lift ones we have in the workshop.

    Didnt use the supplied dyna bolts decided to chemset 16mm rod into the slab for less chance of bolt movement.

    Can put the jack and stands away in the corner and enjoy not rolling on the ground.

    Thanks to Lincoln for getting the logistics and ball rolling for me.

    I only see one hoist there. I'm forever jacking up cars underneath my project cars that always seem to be on the hoist.

    P.s. nice work shop space mate

    One will hopefully do the job but guess there is always room next to it for a 4 post. Slab only strengthened in one bay for a 2 post.

    If i had more hoists then i will get too busy at home.
    Shed is slowly getting to where i want it. Gotta make up some study benches next, Most the good ones ive seen come with a good price attached

    Bit of a thread deflection, but I originally had a 6m bench along one wall. It became a shelf and wasnt usable. Best thing I did was pull it down and use the space for machine/toolbox storage and build a decent, heavy, metal movable fabrication table. Only 1100x900 but has all my welding, cutting, grinding equipment on it.

    So, if I use these

    I can get away with a standard (4 inch thick) slab?

    maybe PM linc. IIRC he is away a lot for work these days.

    Workcover/insurance will not cover you if there is a failire/accident that is attributed to concrete failure. In practice they do the job very well. All concrete and fasteners must be monitored periodically for pulling.

    Cool, thanks. Doing some basic (very) maths, me standing on one foot would be more downward pressure on the concrete per square inch than a 1500kg car on that hoist using those plates (obviously there are leverage loads to account for)

    No one cares about compression loads, concrete is very strong in this regard and why it is such a common building material. If the load was only in compression then you could put a hoist on dirt with no issues.

    Concrete is very weak in tension, which is the load the hoist is putting on it when it isn't perfectly balanced ie always. The hoist is basically a lever trying to pull the concrete up, hence the requirement for a stronger slab with greater force distribution underneath the posts.
    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Thought i covered that with the parenthesis but yeah, I agree. Problem is adding thickness to an established slab

    Hey Lincoln,

    Trying to get an idea of clearance height underneath your 4 post hoists. Need extra floor space in the shed to run my business so thinking of parking my longterm datsun project (going on 6+years without work) on a 4 post and working underneath it. I'm short but don't want to be hitting my head on the long ramps all day long. Website has a lifting height. It's that height of tires off the ground or clearance under all parts of the hoist?

    I’ve got their load spreading plates and highly recommend them. They’re going to say you need spec to cover their butt
