    There is a used Snap on 9000# lift for sale near me. The Snap on site says the lifts are made by Wheeltronics. Anyone ever used one before?

    Got my rotary used - LOVE it! 9000lb asymmetrical. I had to take it down, move and install it but Rotary publishes all their stuff so instructions and manuals are easy to obtain.
    Wanted a USA lift.... Just because. I followed the instructions and it wasn't bad at all.
    My son helped me as these suckers are really heavy. I took the columns off the trailer with engine hoist but couldn't stand them up by myself.

    That's what I have, but the Snap On 11K LBS version. Made in Canada, so it's got to be good. The only problem I have had with it was if you raise the vehicle too high one cylinder gets stuck. Pain in the a$$ to get it back down. I am installing a safety height switch to prevent it from happening again. The newer ones have the switch...

    I've always drained the oil from the oil pan. But I guess you could turn the vehicle upside down to drain the oil... :D

    I doubt this incident was a failure of the lift. Something suggests it was operator error.
