Thats the very one I'm waiting to come on sale to buy. I'll pay a buck and a half but no more. It's normally two hundred. I stop at our local store every week on my way home from roller skating, just to see if it is on sale and see whats new.

If I had know grankids were this much fun, I would have had them FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't like that you can't work on both sides of the bike.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I want it so I can get the bike high enough to pull the rear wheel straight down instead of off to the side. I have my regular small frame lift for everything else.

That looks very stable with the legs. I have a Pit Bull that rolls under the bike. I like it but have to be careful not to go pulling and tugging at the bike too hard.
That HF looks like it would be more stable, but working on one side of the bike would be more difficult.

I like the 30" lift, you could built a stand to set the bike on when you lift it.

I have a friend that has one. He is a little guy, but I saw him climb up onto a raised 1965 Harley and kick start it while it was up in the air. The thing didn't move. If I had the room, I would have one for those times when the Handy table would be inconvenient or in use.

The way the legs are, you could jack up either side of the bike. I think?!?!?!?

I thought it might make one side a little harder to work on but then I would not care about lowering it and move the jack to the other side. So; no problem!
