Do the Harbor Freight lift "feet" fold up when not in use, or they fixed position feet?
The feet are fixed by way of 2 bolts per side. I just slide the feet & forks under a table keeping the unit out of my way. Works for me

Default J&S Lift







I researched quite a few lifts on the market and most of them I wouldn't trust putting my bike on. The reviews mostly pointed toward J&S with Pit Bull not far behind. I ended up buying the J&S Lift and wasn't disappointed at all. The engineering, quality, and safety made it worth the $400 price tag. It came in just days from order and was assembled in minutes. I'm very happy with J&S.

Wow! Have ever changed my tune about the craftsman Jack. It worked ok, but, no comparison to the J&S that replaced it......

Default Atlas

Old thread, but here goes.

My sweet wife got this for my Christmas, this year:
Atlas Cycle Lift XLT
http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-Cycle-Lift-XLT

Not a Handy, but didn't cost as much & for the money, is a good lift.
Got this to go with it:
http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-Motorcycle-Jack

Already have Lowrider up on it & works great! I like not having to sit or squat to work on the bike & can adjust the work height to suit my needs.


Ride Safe,
Harold

As crazy expensive as they are, I may end up with one of these before next winter.


http://ultimatecyclelifts.com/index.html


My garage is 22 feet wide and I try to park an SUV and a car in it with a motorcycle between the two. It's doable but is a really tight squeeze. In the summer one vehicle can set outside (and it's not the bike). In the winter that is not an option. With this option one of the cars could park under the bike and it won't be such a tight squeeze parking next to it. Parking the bike crossways in front of a vehicle is not an option as the garage is not deep enough for that. I have to be very careful that the car door doesn't contact the bike when I open it. I usually make the passenger exit the vehicle before I enter the garage. It's crazy expensive but may solve a storage issue for me in addition to being a really good lift. More Harley tax.

That's just odd seeing the bike just hanging over the car...
