Scissors Lift or Post Lifts, a Comparison
Lifts should have a positive locking mechanism to prevent them from falling should anything fail. Some alignment lifts use a parallelogram linkage to raise the vehicle. Rather than lifting straight up as scissors or post lift, the linkage raises and moves the vehicle forward slightly as it rises
Scissor lifts use a pair of X-shaped beams under each ramp to raise the vehicle, while post lifts have a post at each corner to raise the vehicle. Scissor lifts require more steel, which makes them more expensive than most post lifts, but the advantage is a smaller, narrower footprint, which saves valuable bay space.
The area between the ramps on a scissors lift is also open with no crossbeams to get in the way. This allows unobstructed access under the vehicle from front to rear.
