Portable, free standing quality four post car lifts for the home garage and professional shop. Easy to assemble and use for repairs, restoration or storage. Quality you can trust.
Backyard Buddy is the largest manufacturer of four-post freestanding residential and commercial auto lifts. Backyard Buddy is proud to offer a full-line of lifts for cars, trucks and recreational vehicles of all kinds. Our automotive lifts for home use offer accessory kits like solid inserts and drip pans which make our lifts perfect for storing ATV's, snowmobiles and other seasonal vehicles while providing usable space under the elevated platform for another car.
If you enjoy doing your own work, we offer an optional rolling jack platform that makes it easy to jack up your vehicle on the lift with a bottle jack or our low pro-file air bag jack. We also offer the option of a built in hydraulic jack that uses the lift's power source and has lifting attachments for any car or truck.
Backyard Buddy home garage lifts are built with the professional in mind, but priced for the home user. Our four inch square structural steel tubing and automatic latching system make our lifts the safest home garage or professional automotive lift you can buy. These lifts are so rigid, they do not need to be bolted to the floor. That is what freestanding means. In fact, with the optional castors, a Backyard Buddy lift can be moved around the garage and even outside . Even with a car on it!
Usually, simple is best, and our automatic locking system is simply the safest there is. We machine slots in the 4" x 4" steel corner posts, that the deck support sleeves slide over. Heavy levers (like dead bolts) drop into the slots as they go by. At the desired height, the latches fully engage the slots and the deck and car's weight settle on the latch locking it in place. The only way to release the locks is to raise the lift slightly. Other lift manufacturers weld on little tabs that can fail (it isn't pretty and we have the photos to prove it). Additional safety locks automatically engage in the remote chance there is ever any slack in the cables (it's never happened). Compare us to the "competition"!
Our lifts are rated at 7000 lb. capacity and are available in extended and over height versions for trucks and SUVs. We also have a 9,000 lb extended lift. Backyard Buddy Lifts are made in Warren, Ohio using US and North American Materials. Contact us for a free video and visit our main web site for more details.
