You are asking the wrong questions. The psi is determined by the size of the diameter of the lift cylinder Most cylinders will be in the 5 inch range, and 3000 psi is ok, And the larger the pump output is, the faster the cylinder will move. Probably around 20 GPM will be adequate. So a 3000 psi pump, with 20 gallons per minute should give you what you want.
