The 9,000 lbs. Two-Post Car Lift Models: Which is Right for You?
Our 9,000 lbs. two-post car lift is the most popular lift we sell. It’s ideal for cars and light trucks… and is offered at such an affordable price; it’s an easy investment for any shop. Eagle has been selling this model lift for years because of it’s popularity. The 9,000 lbs. series comes in two models of two-post lift, the MTP-9A and the MTP-9F. How can you know the difference?
The “F” in the MTP-9F stands for floor-plate. As our floor-plate car lift model, you’ll notice that there is no beam across the top of the posts. Instead, you see the plate that runs between the columns on the floor. The post height is a little over 9’, so it’s perfect for lower ceiling heights.
The “A” in the MTP-9A stands for asymmetric. As the 2-post asymmetric clear-floor car lift model, there is no floor-plate across the bottom. Instead, a beam across the top of the posts connects the two. This model also includes an electric-override safety shutoff across the top to stop a car from being raised through the top of the lift!
Both models feature the same lifting capacity, 9,000 lbs… or 2,250 lbs. per arm. (It’s really important for you to know how weight is distributed on each arm prior to purchasing the lift). They are both accompanied by the Eagle Power Unit, featuring a 3 ½ gallon metal tank with 13-month warranty. The two-post car lift is stored in our warehouse in Greensboro, NC and can be shipped out within 24-hours, if it is in stock! We also stock parts and replacement pieces for this lift in Greensboro, NC.
