It’s important to understand how a piece of equipment will fit in your shop before you buy it. Your employees are counting on you to make the right call, and it can have a big impact on your bottom line, too. Every day, our distributors answer questions about how our lifts work as shop owners try to make sure they’re buying the right one.
