    Will the front valance of the 360 or 430 clear the the lift when driving onto the typical four post lift.
    Thanks

    I have a Lift Superstore 8k and yes it does just fine. Using the aluminum ramps but I believe they are the same as the steel ones usually included as far as length.

    I'd be curious if you can open the doors of an F430/360 when it's on the lower level of the auto-stacker without leaving the bottom car hanging out 1/3 or if that is the only way it works? The only video I see on their website with the door opening has the bottom car backing in, If that is the case, then it's a good reason not to get an Autostacker.

    I don’t see any distinct advantage to the autostacker other than perhaps looks? You end up with reduced flexibility.

    whatever goes on the lift, never comes down, fwiw.

    Doesn't a 4 post allow you to work on the underside of the car? Or not quite enough clearance?

    The Autostacker looks tre cool, but seems much more limited in function since you can't get to the underside of the car.

    Even just for parking, seems to have drawbacks as Corey points out

    Totally true… I don’t use the metal ramps that came with the Bendpak because they are so damn heavy!

    Aw come on Ricky!
    At least once a month I’ll let it down.
    I only wish I had it hooked up to 220V.
    Now if I only had a rotating 8 stacker….
