Has anybody used one of these?

I got spoiled working on lifts at my old shop, and I can't stand working on the ground any more. But I can't find/afford one of the Handy lifts we used there. If this HF jobbie isn't in imminent danger of toppling over onto me when raised and loaded, I'd give the cheap one on my local CL some serious thought.

I've got a 40+ year old made in ITALY my landlord has been using and selling the same units HF there not bad. seem stable and come with saftey rods to keep the lift up incase the piston fails.

It's pretty well reviewed on ADVRider. Interesting...

I have two coffee tables, some 2x8s and3/4" plywood and a ramp. cost nothing to and has been 100 percent trouble free in 10 years of use.

The advantage that it has is storage under it for that parts that I remove from the bike.
