I was more referring to being able to life the bike...while its on a lift. Sort of like scissor lifts for cars, but they have that lift in the center to raise the vehicle up off the platform.I sold the kendon off for that very reason, It felt pretty risky with a parrallel block to lift 1200cc bike up off the kendon.
Those Handy Lifts retail around $1400. You got a great deal.If patience is a virtue you posses and you're willing to enter the monkey circus that is craigslist (or like equivalent) there are deals out there. I can't recall the exact figure, but I think I spent about six hundred bucks? Drove to the guy's place, brought it home in my truck.
It's basic, but I would take it over an HF lift any day of the week.
Another vote for the Harbor Freight one. Much sturdier in real life than I had feared - but with so many people recommending them, I gave it a shot. I've got my DL1000 up on mine right now for some winter maintenance. It's so nice to not have to sit on the floor to work.Any suggestions for a lift/table? I have the equivalent to a jackstand, but thoughts on a full on table? Harbor Freight has that $550 one. Something under $1000. I do have access to air.
