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.

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?

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
definitely not as safe as a four post. But just make sure your anchors are all set good. Follow the instructions for setting the anchors from the box.. not the instructions from the lift.
If you are concerned get a couple magnetic levels and keep them on each post. If you start to have issues, try using expoxy anchors.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice lift for confined spaces and will pay for itself, but has minor issues. This is a nice lift. Especially if you have less than 8' ceiling height. I've owned this lift now for about 3-4 years. I can give an honest review. If you search online you will find many reviews and installs on this lift. 50+ page threads depending on where you look. It is not bad, but like anything has it's PRO's and CON's. Pros: 1. Easy to move if you need to make it disappear from your garage if you need the space. I have one column mounted by the wall while the other that is in the middle of the floor can be moved away if I need the space. 2. Very easy to use. 3. This is great for the DIY garage guy or someone that doesn't have funds or room to buy a $5k+ lift. 4. As long as you research and read how to anchor the maxjax you will most likely NOT have problems. Since this doesn't weigh thousands of pounds per column you can move it... see Pro #1. 5. Makes working on your cars easy compared to working under jackstands and confined space. 6. Will pay for itself if you do ANY major repairs... IE: I have done my wife's Toyota steering rack, our Mercedes AC, condenser, front control arms. 7. If you like to detail cars this is awesome. You can see in two pictures of my car (STi) and friend's Optima with lots of blue tape. I can't tell you how nice it is to be able to lift the entire car up, clean the calipers/wax them, wash and clean UNDER the car, and then still do paint correction all while wheels are off and waxed..etc 8. You will try and use the lift with anything in the beginning. I worked on my PUSH lawnmower to clean the blade just because I could. Everyone looked at me like what is wrong with you..hahaha (using motorcycle adaptor) CONS: 1. Since this uses two separate hydraulic cylinders it WILL lift uneven. If yours doesn't, great, but it eventually will. 2. The cylinders WILL eventually leak. Which of course will most likely happen after their one year warranty is expired. You can buy a rebuilt kit and hope that the inside isn't destroyed or Dannmar will gladly sell you another cylinder at $250-300 a pop... Three of my friends that also own the MaxJax all experienced this including myself. Mind you ours are all different ages depending on 1-5 years of use. Still mine started leaking almost at 15 months...Which is unacceptable and the LACK of support was not cool. 3. As noted by another reviewer it only has two holes that you can slide the metal lock bar in. This limits what you can do, HOWEVER, you can drill more holes in the columns without worry. It's been documented and is fine as long as you don't go crazy. I drilled two more mounting holes. You can see from my pictures that I drilled one set of holes below the factory lowest section, and then another set between the factory holes. So I have a total of 4 mounting holes that I can now have the car sit on. It's way more useful this way. I would suggest you measure your car and figure out where to drill. My lowest section is perfect for changing wheels or doing brakes on cars. See picture 9 of my wife's solara... you can see all mounting holes I drilled. Currently that picture is the highest setting. 4. The lifting is only 6k lbs. And I might add gets a little "pucker" moment as you are lifting a 5500lb vehicle. 5. The lifting height, yes it's stated and made for low ceilings, but it would have been nice if it was about a foot higher or even perhaps 60 inches lift. 6. Your neighbors will want to use it or have you work on their cars. Get's OLD fast so either say no right off the bat or CHARGE them! (After 4 detail jobs it's paid for the lift) 7. Since Con #1 states it utilized two separate hydraulic cylinders one other minor gripe is that you have to insert the two metal bars in the columns. This means putting on in, then walking to the other side of the vehicle and putting the other one in, then lowering the car on the bars. (Nit picky yes, however after you do this hundreds of times over and over it gets old... sorry it just does) Overall I do like this and the amount of work I have done in our garage on our cars has paid for itself many times over. I got this lift because I thought I wouldn't be able to fit a full size lift in a garage (and at the time you can see the old garage door openers I had which were standard height, then later pictures you can see the high track garage door system), but the house we got ended up being 11' high ceilings, which I could have easily fit a full size lift in, but would have lost more space in an already small 2 car garage. So far this has lifted all of our vehicles with no problems. Picture of my STi, is what I included and you can see depending on the picture and the different mounting/lifting holes the height at which it lifts. February 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great lift, perfect for home shop This is the perfect garage lift for a home shop. Self install is not too hard if you have a strong back and good hammer drill. It took me 6 hrs to install initially mostly due to how long it takes to bore 10 holes in 6 inch concrete. Works great. I had one small part defective, called the Mfg. And they sent it out immediately. 4 ft lift is really perfect for home with a mechanics roll around chair. A 6 ft lift means working over your head and standing the whole time. It is a little pricey, but the quality is great. It has quick disconnect Hyd. Lines at each post, so you can leave them in place and store the motor and lines if desired. October 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAXJAX Superb Quality and Excellent Install Instructions make this an ideal product for the homeowner who wants a safe lift (48") that is functional and portable. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect!! I had my eyes on one of these for a while and did a good bit of research before I pulled the trigger. I have a relatively small 24'x24' garage with 8.5' ceilings, so I couldn't use a full size lift and I also needed something I could move out of the way when I didn't need it. The ease of portability and small size makes this perfect. Dannmar has several extremely useful videos on the their website, as well as YouTube. Buying from HomeDepot.com worked best for me because I saved on sales tax and it was free shipping to the store. I didn't want to pay the hefty lift gate fee other dot coms were charging. Shipping was much faster than anticipated. With my personal truck under the knife, I couldn't use it to pick up the lift, so I rented the truck from the store and asked them to load it close to the edge. Once I got it home, all I had to unload it with was a cheap engine hoist and chain. I was afraid it would be too short to pick up the 800lb load but it worked like a champ and had it unloaded by myself in a matter of minutes and had the truck back to the store before the hour was up. Looking back at it, I don't believe I would have been able to unload it out of a regular pickup bed unless I had an overhead crane and the way they assemble it for shipping would make it difficult to take apart in the back of a pickup in order to unload the individual pieces. Set up was really simple, tedious, but simple. If you're considering a lift, it's probably safe to say that you're mechanically inclined so I won't go into the assembly. Make sure to use plenty of teflon on the fittings and make sure they are tight. My local store didn't offer tool rentals, so I went to the china made tool store and purchased their SDS hammer drill (on sale) and the 5 piece bit set that included the 5/8" bit but had to go to Home Depot for the 7/8" SDS bit. I also purchased a laser tape measure for lining up the lift. While you're out, stop by the parts store and get some white lithium grease and the recommended transmission/hydraulic fluid for the lift because it is not included. I was unsure on exactly where to setup the lift and spent a little time laying out where I thought it would work best for me. I ended up mounting it about 10' from the garage door opening and 120" wide (from backside of post to backside of post). I probably could have went a few inches wider but I still wanted room to walk around the lift by the wall and still be able to fit 2 cars and a motorcycle with the lift mounted. The kit comes with shims for irregularities in the floor (didn't realize mine was so uneven). Once I got the posts leveled and shimmed, I wrote down how many shims I used next to each hole with a Sharpie. Since I'll be moving the lift frequently, I'll make something to mount on each post to hold the bolts and shims. Bleeding the hydraulic system is very straightforward. For that matter, the included directions are pretty darn straightforward. In the end, 100% by myself, it took me about 7 hours to unpackage the lift, make a few trips to get the above mentioned items, assemble the lift, and put my car in the air. The ease of portability opens up more location options. I ordered more of the Wej-it anchors and plan to set up the lift where I can turn one post 180 degrees and move the other post to the opposite side of the shop and have 2 locations I can use the lift. It's too early to tell the durability but it appears to be a very sturdy, well made lift and I will definitely recommend it to anyone that doesn't have room for a full size lift. December 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good lift I had problems with the anchors grabbing... but at least you can knock them through and get a set of good epoxy anchors (PSS-58) if you have problems. But they are pricey I noticed the older units had quick disconnects for all sides of the hydraulic lines. The new one only has one for each hose so you can disconnect at the post, not at the pump. The problem with this is if you want to use one post, you have to disconnect the hydraulic line and move it down to the lower port use the one post. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. The instructions were not the best, but if you're capable on working on cars enough that you need a lift, then it shouldnt be too hard to figure it out. It isnt too hard to install, one person could do it. Just install the wheels on the post while its on your trailer or bed of your truck and then you can lower and roll it. The rest you can lift on your own. December 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maxjax Everything I expected and more. I would recommend this product to any at home mechanic. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great home lift This puppy is heavy, and installation takes some time, but it is great. The 45" lift height gives you a lot of room to work under the car. It is well made and actually looks really nice in the garage. I love it. Follow the instructions in the box of anchors rather than the lift instructions for the anchor install. I also recommend a distance between posts of around 125". All in all a great product. October 6, 2015
