    Yes, the handy lift is a Rock!!! If you visit your local Harley Dealer and look inside their shop, this is the lift that they use.

    Cost: I do not recall, its been about 5 years ago... I think around $800 with the bike vise including shipping.

        Handy lift

        My father has a Lawn Equipment business and he has had a handy lift for a long time. like about 15 yrs or so. With side extensions he made he puts any riding mower on it even the big zero turn models. Excellant lift. They are no more expensive now than when he bought his. His is air lift and works fine. I'd be afraid to guess how many times that thing has went up and down all these years and he's never worked on it. Except to make the side extensions and a ramp that extends when lowered and folds when raised automatically.

              IMHO, anything capable of lifting will be used to lift more than it was designed for. I would think long and hard about going with lesser steel. However, with that being said, you are making a big jump going from 1/4" material to 14 gauge. I woiuld think you ought to look at MAYBE 3/16" material or 11 gauge. When in doubt, we always use heavier steel and with the exception of items we have to lift in the air routinely (like metal platforms on the top of a 70 foot scissor lift sitting on a pad on the side of a mountain - which we do from time to time) we have been pleased we did. We have many jack stands we built in 1968 that we have used in so many ways over the years and they were great investments in time and material.
