It's really just screwing in the various lines/fittings to the two lifts and the pump. A bit of bleeding from there and done. That's oversimplifying it but that's all it really is.

One thing I will mention is avoid overfilling the hydraulic fluid reservoir haha. Ask me how I know....

Definitely overfilled the reservoir. lol

There must be a new variation because the instructions indicated my type of filler cap didn't require any air bleeding. Just fill up and go. As a matter of fact, we likely could have completed the entire assembly in less than half hour if the instructions weren't such trash. We counted three blatant mistakes. Ended up taking a little over an hour I would say.

But it works. Lifted my Buick up and down with ease. A little slower in each direction than I imagined, but still far easier than jacks and stands.

Yeaaa it's oddly easy to overfill the first time. The reservoir "cap" allows air to bleed off if unthreaded a bit which is intentional. I'm not sure if yours is the same as mine. I had mine a bit too tight and the reservoir attempted to implode but thankfully I noticed it.

I'm fine with the speed as I wouldn't want it to operate that quickly anyway.

Have fun with it!

Ordering one up today. Just had another birthday recently and the less work setting up the car the better. Thanks for the posting.
