MaxJax two post lift anyone using it?

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
I am closing on a house here in a month or so and I am able to finally get a lift like I have always wanted. I have seen this one on several car shows and like that it only requires 84" of ceiling height and is removable and easily stored while not in use.

Anyone here using it? I know it only raises 48" but thats all I want. I am weird as I like to work on my back for the most part but really want the ease and safety of a two post lift vice jack stands. and it will make detailing a car much easier for me so I dont have to bend over.
 
There are specs for the concrete (thickness/material). Modern garage floors should all be fine, but you have to investigate. If not, you can have someone poor footings that are compliant.

I'm in Indianapolis. My house was built in 2004 so I hope it's up to par. 4" rebar reinforced is what they call for. Not sure how you can tell with out destructive testing? I'll just make the holes and see what I got I guess

This is a pretty good write up on it. I've conceder something like this myself but I still can't justify in my own head.

Im in Indy as well justin. You can have someone test the thickness of concrete. No need to pray and drill
