Pitbull & J&S lifts...What's the difference???

Was set on getting a table lift and then realized I really don't want to give up the space for it. Decided I would rather go portable and storable. So after reading a bunch of threads I was pretty set on the Pitbull. That is until I came across people raving about the J&S lift. So I check the site and watch the video. Looks almost the same as the Pitbull for around $100 less. Any advantage to the Pitbull over the J&S???

I have had a pitbull lift for a couple of years..It's amazing how you can move bike around on uneven ground w/o straps...
They are pricy...but the first time a bike DOSEN'T fall - it will be cheap....lifts both dyna and bagger w/o adapter...

Thanks guys. I am sure you are just like alot of other people in threads that I have read. But what I am trying to find out is what the difference is between the Pitbull and J&S lifts.

Pitbull Lifts

J&S Jacks

I have a Pitbull lift and looking at the info and pics on the J&S site I notice that the Pitbull wheels are more heavy duty and there are grease fittings on Pitbull lifts. Don't see them on the J&S lifts. Also the lift surface that actually contacts the bikes frame looks less on the J&S lift.

What I have noticed is that if it is cheaper...they have cut corners somewhere...Pitbull lifts use top quality hardware, lots of zircs...
My bagger would of fallen off another lift when I removed the entire front end w/o strapping it down recently...
