Can you pull a tranny on one of those low lifts?
A good rule of thumb for a diyer would be that you want the weight of the concrete/rebar in your lift foundation to weigh as much as the weight it will be carrying. Obviously, you do not want to use this "rule of thumb" for designing skyscrapers but for a car lift it will be fine. Also, I would imagine that the vendor can give you all kinds of info on the foundation needed for their lifts.
