Ken987 wants to know Dino or Syn?
Do you use lift tables for motorcycle jack

Hi,
My friend has a big garage. I do all the tweaks and repairs of my Sportster in there. He wants to upgrade his garage. He plans on buying a motorcycle jack. I came across a scissor lift table while I was searching. http://www.pentalift.com/us/lift-tab...lift-table.php . It can carry 1000 lb weight and fit the dimensions. I think lift tables will be easier than jack to work on. What are your thoughts on this?
Need your suggestions.

You would be better off with a regular motorcycle lift. The one you linked sit 7" off the ground and has no ramp. Also the table length will not be long enough so you would have to extend it. I would bet it also cost more than a better designed motorcycle lift.

You have listed a lawn mower shop lift.

I have both but use the lift more than the jack.

But get a motorcycle lift. There are plenty of threads on motorcycle lifts if you search. Mine is the cheap one from Harbor freight, never a problem with the jack or the lift.

You like the HB? No issues? You feel it's secure?

This lift doesn't look like something I would want to load by myself. It is right narrow. My feet would prolly be off the tarmac. Hmmm.

Put the wheel chock on and push the bike right up. Like I posted above , I always use 2 tie-downs as added security. Very easy.

I have the MC table lift and a motorcycle jack, both have their benefits, and their drawbacks. Front tires I usually do on the jack, most everything else I do on the MC table lift at a convenient height, including the occasional waxing.

You will find more uses for the MC table lift than you can imagine once you have it. I work on generators, lawn mowers and everything else that I am too lazy to pick up, but don't want to kneel to work on.

The jack I have used since '98 is quick to use and put away when work is completed. If your cement floor is clean, flat and smooth with enough space the bike/jack can be spun around, moved so you can work with sunlight. If work doesn't get done you can move the jack out of the way with the bike on it.
For me a table lift would take up space and be something else to bang ankles on...

I have 2 Handy lifts in my garage, bought them both used on CL for less than the HF units. I ditched the wheel clamps & use condor chocks secure & stable.

Had a HF that I used with my '08 Ultra. Never had a problem with it. I will buy another as soon as I am ready to start on the Panhead.
