The mention of lifts on the Best Tool thread made me think of this lift.
I'm wanting an outside 2 post lift for messy jobs. I want to put it between two buildings with the posts wall to wall since the buildings are only 11 feet apart. One building has a soffit 8 feet up and except for this one, all lifts are taller than that. I had resigned myself to cutting into the roof, then I found this portable lift that is 95 inches tall. Thoughts?

But it's 69 " pad height. If you're tall, kinda shitty. And make sure the concrete has a decent footprint to anchor the freestanding posts
If you're tall, kinda shitty.
A friend installed one at his shop. Great for brake jobs and wheel work. Hit my head allot working under it.
We ended up using a shop wheeled stool under it on occasions .
