Motorcycle lift.

Hey Guy's,

I'm thinking of purchasing a motorcycle lift, any of you got recommendations on where to buy & if you have one, how good is it.

I've seen this one, but unsure of it's sturdyness.(hope you can see the pic). It's also air operated.
Thanks in advance.

I have one, and its fine for home.
Although mine is only the foot hydraulic operated type, 2 modification to do, get rid of the wheel clamp and use a Kneeg front wheel stand Bike Stands - Motorbike Transport Stands - Trailermate - Kaneg Holdings or the like, the other is to install some good quality 360 deg casters on the base, the front outriggers gives you the stability.

Bought mine from Motorcycle Lifters | machineryhouse.com.au.

For the price its perfect.

Thanks Slappa,

There are so many out there. All i want it for is home use.
I was also told buy the seller that the front wheel clamp is pretty ordinary as well. (honest)

I've got a compressor so i might as well go for the air operated unit.

Hey cropduster,

Can't see much of it, but what is that worth? Where did you purchase it from?

yeah sorry, it's the only pic i have with the lift in it.
it's exactly the same as "Scouts Out" and "emmteh" brochure pic. i got mine from serco through a mate who owned a bike shop, i did look but i can't find the receipt so i'd only be guessing what it cost me, sorry mate.

I bought an old hospital bed from a salvage yard for $80. A sheet of 2mm stainless from the same place for $30 and I had a table that lowers to 200mm from the ground and raises to 900mm from the ground. Mechanically operated by a pedal so no electric, air or hydraulic parts to wear out.

Here's mine, $499 on eBay. Picked it up whilst I was in Melbourne from their depot - no problems with it but like previously mentioned, I must get round to swapping the wheel clamp for something like the Kaneg wheel locks.

Yeh thats the one Wes,

Sounds like they seem to be ok for home, as long as you change the front wheel clamp like Slappa said.
I might have to invest in one.

Thanks lads.
