The first photo shows Sam pulling into his driveway with his new Backyard Buddy lift on his car trailer. Next his pal Joe helps him unload it off the trailer using an engine hoist. Check how neatly the lift is packaged.

Next Sam and Joe start to lay out the lift components in position. You really need a friend to help because the lift components are well built and heavy.

Sam and Joe stand up and assemble the corner posts. Now it's starting to look like a lift!
