In Focus: Dannmar MaxJax two-post lift

April 9, 2009
The Dannmar MaxJax two-post portable lift works for small shops and low ceiling applications.

Developed based on requests for a lift accessible with low ceiling space and portable for undercar access, Dannmar offers the MaxJax two-post lift system, the only lift that is fully portable and stowable.


The Dannmar MaxJax lift is a commercial-grade, multi-vehicle, two-post lift, heralded by garage owners for its ability to fit easily into small garages and shops. The low-rise system has a lifting capacity of 6,000 lbs. The lift features a maximum height of 89” when in use and can be stowed in 2 sq. ft of space.

The MaxJax can be attached to garage floors as a permanent solution if needed, but is unique in that it is fully portable, and can be setup in as little as 15 minutes.


The idea for this product came from the DIY network because of their limited ceiling space and need for something portable that allows undercar access.


Each unit features a rugged steel construction, built-in wheels for portability, a mobile power unit cart, safety lock bars and fully adjustable lift arms with stackable adapters that provide an additional 3” lift height.
