Thumbs up Useful Bike Lift

Firstly, I have absolutely no ties to this company in any way shape or form and thought this could be of use to other forumites who had the same problem as I.

I've wanted a bike lift/work bench for quite a while but don't have the dedicated floor space to have one sitting there constantly when not in use.

Anyhow a pic is worth a thousand words, just finished my mini service on F4 which is the service in-between the factory 6K services, I do a mini service, oil & fluids & a checkover including hub every 3K - now I am looking forward to the next bike to service - check this out:


F4 on stand rasied:



Lowered:



Folded:



Stored away until next time:



The model in the pic is the cruiser lift, there's also a smaller sportbike model but I opted for the larger one as my brother in law has Harleys & can borrow it if required.

It weighs 63 kgs, has wheels on one end & easily movable by one person to get into position and to store up right. it works off both compressed air & hydraulic & has a safety locking bar should anything fail. I must say though that lifting hydraulically is quite a feat and it is like 100 pumps (or it feels that way) to move 6 inches - with the compressor it goes to max height in less than 10 seconds. It needs a 120PSI rated compressor.

As I said I have no interest in the company but after using it this weekend I wish I had!

That's a nice lift and at $749 US a good deal:

Hi Glenn, Yes thanks mate, finishing the 350 "Tributo Ago" (which was that 'pile of junk' you saw laying all over the place) was a big boost - to cleaning up the garage & repainting it & doing the floor.

They are a little more expensive here in Australia but I reckon worth it - they are pretty well built nice finish. I like that they have 4 tie down points as well.

I have had a Kendon Lift for years...albeit not with the air lift feature. I just hand pump mine up. (There's a joke in there somewhere.) Nice piece of kit. Just be careful when loading a heavy bike as the forward momentum can bend the wheel stop loop.

I am getting too old to be on my knees - you are talking about bikes right? It not a precursor to Chuck's hand pumping joke is it?

Thanks Chucky that good info to for me (and others) to get from a long term user of the product, I'll keep an eye on that. I am lucky to have a few good friends that own engineering firms so if it starts to look problematic I'll ask a favour and have them reinforce it Better still I might not lend it to my brother in law & his damn Harleys & prolong its life
