PostSubject: Bike Lift   Sat Feb 14, 2015 11:34 pm

While working on a recent "rescue project" I decided to look into a lift table & was reluctant to #1 spend that much money & #2 have something that big in my smallish shop area. After some digging I found this company http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/ within 10 miles of my home and they had a scissor lift for $75.07 OTD. I'm extremely impressed with the rigidity & the convenience. I'm pissed that I waited so long to get one of these.



It secures to the table with these j bolts to the foot pegs. Quick, easy & very secure.

nice... and enough height to help save your back from aching..

I like the peg hold down set up.. the hooks would save having to take the thumb screw completely off...

thanks for posting

That would work great in my garage cheers

I went to the web site and it was $88.00 to ship to my house BOOM


I then checked and the nearest one is 65 miles from my house so I guess 20 bucks for gas would be worth it to go and pick one up. wings

That's a nice-looking stand. Unfortunatley, it won't fit under my lowered WRR.

Anyone try one of these??

Roll the bike onto a piece of 2x6 front & rear then slide the stand under the bike. Then you can enjoy the benfits of the taller scissor lift.

The scissor lift you reference is normally used on table lifts to lift the rear wheel off the table.

That's a pretty neat lift.

I tried one of the those scissor lifts. It was not that stable front to back. I could not take a wheel off without it wanting to topple.

I ending up with a table lift. MUCH better. If centered properly I can pull either wheel off without toppling. I also use the table for tools and bits while I'm working. It can be raised much higher than a scissor lift making work a breeze. When down the table slides right under the bike with no fuss (at least with WR250F).

Here's the one I got >>Lift Table

I yanked the handle off as it was bulky and so it can live under my shop table when not in use.
