4 post lift questions

Hi, all. Thought I'd drop by and pick some brains. Anyway, my brother and I are looking at getting a 4 post lift for our shop. Mostly, it will be used for vehicles weighing less than my SD (apprx. 7100 lbs.) and my X (roughly the same weight). He owns a full size conversion van that he says weighs in at around 6200 lbs +/-. We have narrowed our search to either an Eagle or BendPak. In all honesty, he's been doing most of the "leg work". I told him to let me know when he finds "the one" and I'll "pony" up my half. He asked that I ask you all what your thoughts are about getting either brand in the 9000 lb. variety. Anybody have any experience with either? Good, bad? Is that weight rating/limit sufficient for us? Thanks in advance.

I know this is a couple months old, go with bend-pak or rotary! they cost a little more but are worth it.

If you have already installed the lift can you post pics

Thanks. We bought a Rotary. Haven't had time to install it, yet.
