Product Overview

For portability, compact storage and convenience, no automotive lift on the market today compares to the Patented MaxJax Portable Two Post Lifting System by Dannmar. This portable two post lift is perfect for low-clearance ceilings and home garages. Need a quick oil change. Don't have the room for bulky 4 post and 2 post lifts. Need to be able to use vehicles lanes when not working on your vehicles. Well need no further because the MaxJax Lift gives you all the convenience of a regular 2 post lift, but without permanently taking up a vehicle lane. Anyone who is looking into a car lift will eventually come across the MaxJax. For many home enthusiasts, a car lift is just a dream; because their garage ceiling is just too low to fit a full sized lift. A scissor style lift just won't do for most die-hard enthusiasts. 2 words come to mind: Under-car Clearance. So, you're left with 1 option, when you can't fit a full-sized lift and you would rather use floor jacks than fork over 2000 dollars for a scissor-lift: you need the MaxJax. It is truly the only 2-post lift for home garages. With a minimum ceiling height of 8 ft., it will fit in just about any home garage. With an encyclopedia's-worth of information all over the internet, you will find that this lift is the only one of its kind. Filling that niche that no other lift could fulfill in history. Making your garage just as useful as any shop.

Asked by: InSanDiego
I see that you guys have censored both of my responses, claiming they violated your guidelines. I carefully read your guidelines and the only conclusion I can draw is that you censored them because they were comments unfavorable to you. I merely responded to someone's question about whether my initial question about this item had been responded to. It has not, and no amount of censoring you do changes that. I now know that Home Depot censors feedback and therefore your customers reviews only reflect whatever it is you deem as positive and therefore it is completely unreliable. I will not be relying on your web page for meaningful, complete and unbiased reviews and feedback due to your censoring.

Does this jack have to be bolted to the floor, or will it free stand and can be moved after use?

Does this jack have to be bolted to the floor, or will it free stand and can be moved after use?
Asked by: RW
It is bolted to the floor with recessed anchors so when you move it, there should be no protruding studs. Mine is permanent with studs.

Power Requirements!

Unbelievably this is not mentioned any where here or on the max jax website. yes, I know it's 110v or 220v but what is the current requirement????
Asked by: Joe
Depends greatly on the load being lifted, but it should be under 2200W even at max capacity. Perhaps someone that has one could measure a "typical" draw.

Minimum concrete thickness for installation?

I read one of the feedback statements that said the minimum concrete thickness had to be 6.5" . The thickness of my garage floor is only about 4 " to my knowledge. I couldn't find any requirement or specification for concrete thickness so what's the deal?
Asked by: 98942
I installed it on 4 - 4.5". The thickness of my slab isnt too even. I did have problems with the wedge style anchor supplied. They looked heavy duty but I got one side to catch, but only a couple on the other post. My guess is the pour on that side wasnt as good or I wore out the expensive drill bit.

Customer Reviews

MaxJax 2-Post Portable Lift is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after less than 20 lifts. Nice concept but not consistent. Cylinder failed after less than 20 lifts. Phone troubleshooting lead to my vehicle being dropped while on the phone going through their steps. Lift was uneven by 6 inches. Pictures attached. Warranty was out, so customer service could care less. $370 to fix a faulty cylinder with less than 20 lifts performed on it. I have a CAT certified scale printout that fully lubed and all fluids full vehicle is 5,671 lbs. MaxJax is rated to 6000 lbs. Definitely not overweight. Quality just didn't hold up to a true test of it's capabilities. Dannmar made no effort to make it right without paying full markup for parts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very cool lift i bought mine 6 years ago or so. I thought I had a place to set it up. fell thru. I found a secondary spot for it. fell thru. so after 5 or so yrs of it taking up space in my garage, I sold it for 50% of what I bought it for. it was a nos item as the hoses had never been hooked up, and the pump was never plugged in. I couldn't use it in my own garage as the construction of the garage was all wrong for it. I still have the car I bought it for and it should be done this year. not much of a review but I spent 10 yrs wanting this thing the el camino I was doing. I bought it for a ranchero project I acquired. the elkie is done (for the fourth time), and the ranchero is in the paint shop.

Their support is horrible. I received my $2,000 lift from them with a bad anchor and they will not replace it. Their tactic is to make you jump through hoops to get a four dollar replacement part. After dealing with them for a week, I gave up. Their tactic worked on me since it's quicker and easier to get the part elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as I had hoped. I wanted a lift so I could fit three cars into my two-car tandem garage. I selected this model because it was the only lift that would work with my limited garage ceiling height of 7.5 feet. It was delivered to my door and the delivery guy spend extra time helping me unload it and move it to my garage. Assembly was easy and installation when smoothly with help from a friend. I discovered that I did not have the minimum slab depth of 5.5" required by the manual. So, instead we dug a 6'x12' hole 8" deep, and installed re-bar and J-bolts. I lost the portability, but that wasn't my intent anyway. I gained a very secure installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mid rise lift I built a 26 x 32 garage for rebuilding a classic car and I chose this lift to put in the garage due to my fault of not having enough ceiling height to fit a full size lift in. However, this lift was perfect for me, I was able to do everything I wanted to do with a rolling chair underneath. The lift was easy to install and I permanently mounted the pump on the wall and had the lift lines out of the way. Great tool to have in the garage, and was very easy to unbolt from the floor when I needed the lift out of the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MaxJax Works As Advertised I bought my MaxJax last summer. I decided on this product because of my 8' ceiling height. The only part of installation that was a bit difficult are the supplied Wej-It POWER-Sert inserts ( Had a hard time getting them to really bite into the concrete) but a 6 foot pipe and second round of tightening them and they finally held the required torque setting. Other than that it handles the low clearance on my Ferrari and the weight of my Rolls very well. I would by the MaxJax over again no problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good bargain Had this for 4 years. Very sturdy & reliable. Right cylinder lags the left by 2" even after bleeding all the air. There's only 2 locking positions for lift height and many could have be added by simply drilling more holes in the columns. I break it down after each use and messing w/ the shims to get the columns plum is a PITA. I put epoxy under the bases when finishing the garage floor so the columns can be rolled into place and are plum w/o shims.

The lift it's self is great, and with HD 24 month interest fee financing I couldn't pass. It really does need to have extra holes drilled in the uprights for safety bar height adjustment. First things first, make sure your concrete (where the pads sit) is solid and perfectly level. I wasn't sure how thick my pad was so I cut out two 24" x 24" sections and poured 8" of 5000 psi w re bar. I installed mine for a more permanent type install so I skipped the anchors that came with it and used epoxy in anchors. I mounted the pump cart to one of the uprights and ran new hydraulic hoses up across the ceiling. I've only used it twice so far, but I love it.
