Mid-rise lifts are offer more comfort and slightly more working height than a low-rise option.

The MD-6XP is however popular with detailer studios, body shops and vehicle enthusiasts who carry out routine upkeep or maintenance at home – when open-center accessibility is not a priority.

This scissor lift is considered to be ideal for home garages as it basically disappears into the floor and when collapsed is flush to the ground, taking up no space at all.

This lift has the lifting height of a two-post hoist but has a simpler design.
