Who has table lifts, what brand, and why would you or why would you not buy the same brand again.

I have one and love it. Being the kind of guy that sees an item he wants but isnt willing to pay what they are asking for it, I built my own tablelift for less than $100 in new materials and parts I had laying around ( I am a pack rat)

I bought mine from harbor freight in one of their sales for $300 (it operates by foot or compressed air) seems quite stable, clamps the front wheel well and has saved me from so much back ache that I would never be without one.. If you are working daily on your bike I would suggest buying something more expensive, but for me, I work on my bike once every 3 months (oil change, tyre change, etc) the harbor freight lift works well and was in my price range.

I'm like Todd I built my own, I call it Littlebeaver's Break Away System...I love it because I can drop the rear wheel out with no problem.. Best tool I ever made myself.. I only used 2x8's, with it on the bikes center stand its the same height as the HF one give or take an inch. If you are clumsy forget about it..If your not its a great tool.. Oh crap, sorry this isn't a table lift... :o
Simple, ride up and place on centerstand and break away the sides and ramp leaving the rear wheel with nothing under it but air...

I also have a HB lift, I work on my Valkyrie myself, and the HB table is just fine for me. don't get me wrong---I do not work on it all the time---but ,when I need to do something to it ,I can. I'm to old to ---squat,bend down ,bend over,get on my knees,crawl,lay down , or anything like that.soooooo the lift table allows me to do things ,sooo ,,,,I don't have to do those things that hurt, just my 2 cents-----GOD BLESS----
GOD BLESS

I bought a Handy Lift early this year from a freind of mine, he had it for about 6 years. Air lift with side extensions that he added out of 1X8"s

It's not what you buy, it's what you build.
