Anyone have an opinion after using Craftsman Red Motorcycle lift? Reliable? Smooth? Tricks of the trade? Santa Claus brought me one, but it's too cold to test!
I have it...It's a good lift but you need two people to get her up on it until you get comfortable pulling the bike up a little yourself because clearance in an issue...it goes most of the way in but not all...I can do it by myself now but I suggest 2 to start off with...other that that it is a really good lift and it comes down nice and smooth...Anyone have an opinion after using Craftsman Red Motorcycle lift?

Thanks dirtdobber, I'll do a little more looking.The craftsman red jack is low cost. The hydraulics may start to loose pressure through time and there is no replacement cylinder due to the way it is made. As they get used (older) they will start to have slack in the hinges, sloppy feeling. There are several that will cost about the same. Many have discarded theirs. My leaked down, not holding pressure, I bleed the cylinder and it started holding again. When I have my bike on a stand-jack, I want it stable. I use my jack to get it on my stand which is solid as a rock. It is made for the VTX motorcycle.
just my thoughts
