Light and compact enough to hangs on the wall for storage.  Can push the car about on casters.  Not that high up compared with big axle stands but neat and easy.

wonder if it goes high enough to drop a Flavia / Fulvia gearbox taking into account the height of the jack and transmission cradle??

Oh that is good.
Reassuringly expensive but perfectly justifiable if you work on your own car/cars.

Very creative and a great idea executed in an affordable manner. If you worked out the number of times you both jacked up and then used axle stands to support same it would almost pay for itself in a couple of years from a time perspective (never mind the safety and flexibility), especially if you'd two plus cars.

The motivation of most on the forum for getting a car lift isn't so much the time to jack up and position axle stands as that being "a young man's game". 

There are any number of variations on the theme, this one doesn't go particularly high BUT it is so slim and light to store, and can shove the car out the way mid job or wiggle it about in limited space for access.
