    CAR HOISTS - 11 different types - Brisbane and Melbourne Warehouse.

    Hi PF,

    A long term friend of mine set this business up four years ago in Brisbane. He went to China a lot and started looking at a hoist for his own use. He found a company he could work with, engaged an Australian Engineer to better their current design and started importing.

    He made a lot of improvements. some of which;

    Above CE standard using Australian Standard design concepts.
    Unique Australian design carriage with extra gusseting.
    Unique Australian design arms with extra gusseting.
    Steel hydraulic lines.
    Dual stage screw up pads that can be extended.
    An external 3rd party Mechanical Engineer inspects all critical welds prior to powder coating (in addition to the companies internal QA).
    Straight C02 welding gas instead of an argon mix (better penetration but not as pretty).


    Through word of mouth and gumtree/ebay he began advertising and gets great feedback;

    http://happ.com.au/products/blog/

    I am now involved in the business with a Melbourne warehouse and future showroom. For the price point (starting at $2190.00 for a two post floor plate 4 tonne hoist) there is not a better hoist. We do not pretend to be as good as the Aussie made Molnars etc (at 2-3 times the price), but we are miles better than some of the other chinese hoists imported via other companies.

    I know a lot of PF guys need/want hoists and I mentioned a while a go about a way to advertise/support PF.

    For every hoist sold through PF I will donate $100 direct, I will also offer the PF guys a discount by including free car ramps or a free 30L oil drain ($139 value). Call me on 0417167885 or email lincoln@happ.com.au

    PF Deal - free Ramps;


    PF deal - free Oil Drain

    Installers - yes I think so - doing first install on Monday in Laverton - welcome to come and hitch a ride to see the process. Installation seems to cost $660 or so - 1/2 day work but you need two blokes for erecting columns so not super money bags - however the good installers can do 3 a day. Most of our (I have doing this for 6 weeks now so have only half a clue - business has been running for 4 years) customers are self-erectors but the Brisbane business get 2-3 installed per week.

    I know you are a hard and keen worker so will keep you in mind for this. Business has heaps of room for expansion into workshops etc but need to do two things first;

    Complete showroom.
    Send Paul (my business partner who is a killer fitter and turner) off the china to work in the factory for a month to pick up the quality of the 2% difference to the next tier of quality.

    I bought one from big red jacks. (NOT A HAPP, but another brand) It has been a pita. It is full of iron shavings in the lines. The seal is currently blown on a ram. So needs to come out, replace. It gets caught up when you drop it back down. I have a car on it at the moment, but it only goes up about half way if that. Due to running out of oil. Been used about 5-6 times due to shitness.

    Can you clarify if you bought a HAPP hoist or another brand?

    Won't be HAPP. We don't sell through resellers. Also, if it was a HAPP we would have fixed the problem at our expense.

    Gee Canberra freight sucks.... etc our biggest hoist;


    Brisbane to Canberra $430.00
    Brisbane to Sydney $220.00
    Brisbane to Melbourne $300.00
    Brisbane to Adelaide $370.00

    Melbourne to Canberra $430.00
    etc etc

    Your best bet is to hire a car trailer - get it shipped to Sydney - they can load it, get it home and de-crate it with a few mates in smaller pieces.

    I didn't post to say it was one of these, should have made it more clear. More that these should be better.

    What sort of Jacks do they have for the 4posters? Been thinking of a second host and contemplating 4post for the quick type of services, oil/brakes etc. But would need a quick sill jack i think.

    Just to throw some logic into that idea do you reckon you could hire a car trailer and tow it 600+ kays for $210? It's one of those shit deals where you just need to pay the Canberra tax lol

    We have two types of jacking beams for the 4 posters.

    Hand pump jacking beam – $995.00 (gst inclusive)
    Air pneumatic jacking beam – $1295.00 (gst inclusive)

    PF price would be the Air beam for the price of the Manual beam when bought with a HAPP25.

    HAPP25 lifts to 2000mm top of ramps.... ramps are 100mm thick. You would be a big short arse not to walk under them - 1900mm.
