What are 4 Post Hoists Suitable For?
Four-post hoists are versatile and suitable for various automotive maintenance and repair tasks. Here are the common uses for four-post hoists:
Engine Work: Four-post hoists provide a stable platform for lifting and accessing the engine bay. This makes tasks such as engine removal and installation, engine diagnostics, and major engine repairs much easier and safer.
Transmission Servicing: When working on transmissions, having a four-post hoist allows mechanics to raise the vehicle and access the transmission from underneath. This simplifies tasks like transmission fluid changes, repairs, and replacements.
Underbody Work: Four-post hoists are excellent for performing undercarriage work. This includes tasks like exhaust system repairs, suspension work, and brake system maintenance, as the vehicle can be lifted off the ground, providing easy access to the underside.
General Maintenance and Inspections: Four-post hoists are also used for routine maintenance tasks, such as oil changes, tire rotations, and vehicle inspections. The hoist’s stability and convenience make these tasks quicker and more efficient for automotive service shops.
Car Storage: Four post hoists are used to create additional storage space in garages or auto enthusiasts’ spaces. By lifting one car off the ground, it allows another vehicle to be parked underneath it. This is especially useful for individuals with limited garage space but multiple cars to store. The elevated car remains securely suspended, providing a safe and efficient way to store multiple vehicles in a compact area.
Garage Parking: 4 post hoists are utilised in commercial parking garages or private residences to maximize parking capacity. Four post hoists allow vehicles to be stacked vertically, optimising the available space. This is particularly beneficial in urban areas where parking space is limited and parking structures need to accommodate a high volume of vehicles.
4 post hoists are highly suitable for automotive workshops, garages, and service centers where heavy engine work, transmission servicing, and underbody repairs are frequently conducted. Their functionality and ease of use make them a popular choice for mechanics working on a variety of vehicles.

Two-post hoists offer access to all parts of the vehicle, while also taking up the least amount of floor space. However, due to the operation aspect of the hoist, the safety risk is a lot higher with the two post hoists, as the operator needs to select the perfect balance point to lift the vehicle (this can change if the vehicle is being modified or parts removed). A four-post hoist takes up more space than a two-post hoist, however it is more efficient for the operator to simply drive straight onto the hoist, without having to worry about the center of weight and start lifting. Note that in order to get the wheels free on the vehicle, you will require an Ascenta jacking beam.
