    Thought I’d finish this thread and let you know that I went for the short 2 post lift. It’s high enough that I can sit on a stool to work underneath the car.
    It seems to be a very well made price of kit so I’m very happy with it. The delivery became a running joke as they turned up twice with me means to get it off their lorry......oddly enough I done have a fork lift truck!!!! I eventually got them to drop it off at the plumbers merchant and unpacked it to put in my van

    There are versions that are a lot more sturdy. We have one that has large metal plates on the base of each scissor that stabilise it and have guides for the scissor wheels to run in. It also has a heavy mechanical latching system built into the base so there’s no danger of it dropping.

    Ours is rated at 3000kg and I’ve had no problems with a 2.5t Disco on there. Just be mindful you put your car on there the right way around, because the scissor is fixed one end and rolls the other you need to ensure that the heavy end of the car is at the right end of the lift for maximum stability.
    A brilliant bit of kit for those who don’t have the space (it’s portable) or the funds for a more conventional lift

    Locking device is a spring loaded latch which you can see in the pics.
    I had a good look around before i bought it before i decided on it.
