On Tuesday I was doing my daily browse of Craig's list and came upon a Pitbull Motorcycle lift for sale about 30 miles up the road for me. I called the woman & I said if it works I'll take it. So today, the wife and I took a ride & checked it out. It was sitting on a dirt floor of a garage. I tried it out & it worked great. So $70.00 later, I am a proud owner of a GREAT M/C Lift!! Woohoo!

Here's some pic's.....comparing the Craftsman jack I have with the Pitbull. Wow what a difference!

What does the Pitbull do that the Craftsman won't ?
Well....

Pitbulls bark, play & sometimes are considered nasty.

Craftsman typically are talented individuals albeit a bit egocentric, costly & somewhat hornery if their abilities are ever questioned.


So as you can see they are totally different with the exception of the nastiness.

:D:D:D:rolleyes:

Hope this helps my friend.

Very Nice Find Mark, Congrats.

Lee,

The Pitbull is steadier than the Craftsman. My Craftsman doesn't pump up all the way anymore, and it's only 2 years old. I tried to get a replacement bottle for it and can't find one for it. The Pitbull has a lifetime warranty the Craftsman only one.

Is it worth the difference in cost? That's up to you.....$489.00 plus $94.00 shipping to me is too much. But to find it locally for less than a new Craftsman.....that's well "priceless"!

Mark, you just need to top off the fluid in the bottle. Hydraulic jack oil or automatic transmission fluid will work.

What kind of work do you do on your bike to need a jack ?
Lee,

Oil changes, tires, brakes, Pretty much anything....I put it on the jack & can sit on a stool instead of the floor. It's much easier on my knees & back.

You can't pull the front wheel on the center stand....

Pull the front wheel off ? Am I supposed to do that? If I had a garage, I would probably have one.
I know a place where you can get a good deal on the door.;)
