Default Motorcycle Jack

Sears has a good deal on their Jacks. Here --http://www.sears.com/craftsman-motor...a=00950190000P

Just picked one up.. It appears as better quality than the HF brand I also have.
they are listed as $79.99 online purchase. My store had 2 of them. Lady told me their $99.99 at the store. Then she stated that they would give it to me at the online price.
Never have enough tools...

I bought one of those about five years ago on sale for $69. Used it to lift the Heritage Softail.

Now I just use it to lift my John Deere tractor. Works great.

I have both the Sears and the Harbor Freight. Both are well worth the money. Recently picked up a lift table and from Harbor Freight and it works very well. Replaced the cheesy front wheel chock with one that locks the wheel in place for one person loading.

Pitbull = ~$450
Sears = $79.99
Both same lift...

I'd like to have a table lift. Just don't want to commit the real estate for it.
Might be a good excuse to add on to the garage. LOL

Yep, they do take up a bit of space. When and if you get one they are great. Oil and tire changes are very neat and easy. The jacks always seemed to be in the way of the drain plugs.

I only have a single car garage but with two bikes in there the cages stay in the driveway.

Default Sears Motorcycle Jack

I've had a Sears one for over ten years. The hydraulic cylinder doesn't stay up anymore as it slowly lets any heavy load down. Luckily I can change the oil & filter on my Victory Cross Country without raising it.

What's with the 3 minute limit on editing a post? Jeez, sometimes I just make mistakes that I need to fix, and sometimes just digging for photos takes a bit of time......
