And also you need to have an engine crane Or access to a forklift but if you are buying a 4post car hoist The installation is the same but if you going to open a Workshop to start your own business so you are going to buy 2 to or 3 car Hoists, In this case I think the best is to have an installer who will install the Hoist.

And you want to install a car Hoist Always check the concrete floor It is very important otherwise you have to cut the floor and make the concrete Thicker 150mm to 200mm And to do the floor you have to cut the concrete 1 m by one meter and 400 mm deep this work Can carry out by your self or you can hire concrete people or concrete company they can cut it for you it will be expensive but sometime you have no other option to have the car Hoist Safer and stronger and you need to leave it for two weeks for the concrete to be dry so you can have good drilling
And also a good idea to have chemset So when you drilling for the hole fill with chemset and then put the bolt and hammer down And leave it For 30 to 45 minutes And after you can tighten the bolts and make sure the two posts are level And when you finish the installation put the car on the Hoist and make sure the two carriages Are level If they are not level you have to commission the Hoist and adjust the cables on both sides and you need to fill the power unit oil container with the hydraulic oil Grade 32 or hydraulic oil Grade 46 and both are same But if you are situated in a hot area it is better to use Grade 46.
