If so, how is it holding up for you? Do you like the ease of use or is it a PITA? Any other issues?

Already replied on mine in the other thread. I bought the good aluminum one from Sears on the last tool sale.

So far, so good. Like it because it is easier to move around. I can pick it up and hang it on the wall without a lot of effort.

Used it three times so far. No issues.

I have an aluminum jack rated 1500lbs. Its branded "CrewLine" ,from what I can tell its the same one sears sells. Front wheels are wide spaced and rear are mch closer together. I think thats the one your refering to. I have had it a yr now and used several times . Even used it as a transmission jack for my sons 4X4 truck. ITs been fine . Though I did find I needed to slightly open the vent screw for it to work . I think it is closed (vent screw) to hang on the wall.

Thanks folks.

I'm going to buy one tomorrow and hopefully also fix my red one. I think if I can get the red one to work, it would be a nice addition to when I drop one or the other wheel off to put under the wheel remaining to keep things balanced better.

Positive thoughts, positive results.

I have trouble with my "red" one because it is too high to slide under a couple of my cycles unless I hold them vertical to start, which is a bit tricky for a single person.

I think the more expensive model ( I am assuming that is the aluminum one you speak about ) lowers to 4" as oppossed to 5.25". That would make my life much easier. Can anyone confirm the minimum height of the aluminum lift?
