Joyce brand "in ground" air over hydraulic hoist/auto lift. This automotive hoist is out of a defunct service station. It is basically a large hydraulic jack/cylinder that mounts out of the way in the ground. When air pressure is applied to a hydraulic oil tank the lift pops out of the ground. Super simple. The "X Shaped" arms on the lift platform rotate and extend in and out. I built a cart to transport the lift until I put it into use, which never happened. There was a time when this type of hoist was in every service station in the nation. A nice thing about this type of lift is that there are no above ground posts that are always in the way. I planned to recess the "X" platform so that the top surface was just below the floor surface and then cover it with a plate. The hoist would then be competely out of the way and when raised the cover plate would serve as a work table for welding and fabrication or to service a motorcycle, riding mower, side by side......the list goes on and on! Check out the YouTube like listed below. This lift would be perfect for any repair shop, restored service station or mancave. I observed the hoist in operation before I purchased it. I am asking $395/Offer.
