A lot of guys have them and like them. I don't have one yet but may get one now.

i have one. been using it for the last few years.
good value.
just make sure to use it on a flat and even sturdy surface and use tie downs to keep the bike secured on the lift.

great for the DYI'ers.

one note... the lift comes unassembled... so you do have to have some basic tool skills to put it together.
instructions are all there.

I have one and it works fine. I do need to make a little ride on platform to get the bike a bit higher so that I can put spacers on the lift to clear the bottom of the motor.

I'm just thinking, if one cannot figure out how to put the lift together, one should probably put the wrench down and back away from the bike.

My yellow HF lift was assembled. But yes, it works great! I've had it 5 years.

Aren't these lifts regularly $79.99 and with the 20% off coupon cheaper? Can we use use the coupon with the new sale price?

I've been on the fence on one for a while and according to the reviews, there are two models. One sits lower than the other and supposedly works better on our low-slung Shadows. I can't remember now the different part numbers, but you can find them reading the reviews, which it looks like I'll be doing again.
