Anyone in the Phoenix area done this and can you share any tips so I only have to make new mistakes instead of old ones??
Tired of sitting on the concrete so want to get this done before the heat gets here. Got a guy with a concrete saw lined up and he will help with the lifting and grunting.
Hi, Kevin - got questions. What brand of lift table? Method of raising/lowering (I assume hydraulic, butt assuming is ???).
After cutting the floor, what will provide the foundation for the lift? Any cause for concern in cutting thru the garage slab's grid of rebar?
Insetting the lift flush into the floor will decrease the lift's fully raised height dimension by the depth of the cutout hole. Considered?
Does the lift have an attached wheel chock? If so, is it easily removed after the lift is lowered?
Sorry for all the questions, Kevin. I don't mean to be negative, but I pondered those and more, back in the day when I considered flush mounting my Handi-lift at the house. Decided against it at the time, and as luck would have it, I've had an occasion to move the lift twice!!
Good luck with your plans, Kevin - hope you'll issue a project report following completion.
