I have the aluminum lift from Mad Sled.  It works very well. It uses a Bulldog 5000 lb jack to lift the sled.  A 1/2” drill raises it no problem.    I’m not sure if they are still in business?  The Extreme Max Aluminum Sled Lift loos to be the same thing.

If you have a flat floor, get the wheel kit, it seems most lifts offer it as an option. You may not think it would be needed, but that one time you use it and it saves you from lugging the sled around on the floor.... all worth it.

I bought a “CMP” lift through my dealer about 15yrs ago and it has been well worth it. (Was about $285??). Not sure CMP is still around though. I did add the wheel kit and would definitely recommend it b/c there are always times you’ll want the sled moved to another spot in the garage - even if it’s just to get it closer to the open door to run it for track alignment checks, etc. 

A quick additional thought - NONE of the wheel kits are much good on anything other than a concrete floor b/c they are small and each have a lot of weight on them.

May I offer a slightly less expensive option then Dooright has shown.  This Yale model is available from the Ski Door dealer right across the road from the Economic Lodge in Montmagny.  This sled lift however does cause considerable mental torment to the person that has hired it.....for several seasons after the useage.
