Deal alert: Harbor Freight motorcycle lift for $298 including tax - March 18, 2017, 04:09 PM

Regularly $429.99, now on sale for $279.99+tax using coupon #12948218

I just picked mine up from the Gaithersburg location to avoid the shipping charge. Be aware that it comes in a wooden crate that is 7 feet long and is 350 pounds or so.

I've wanted one for like 20 years...

They fall apart quickly. In less than 3 years it has to be serviced several times to the point no mechanic wanted to work on it. Maybe if you have a light motorcycle and rarely use the lift.....but it will end up being wasted money.

Jeez, I don't plan on putting it to work, just to help me not work on the floor. It's a great addition to my humble stall, and for the price, if I have to tighten some shit and replace a gasket in 3 years, I can live with that.

I've had mine for over 3 years now with no issues. I've heard stories on both ends. Mostly good though. I think it's like anything else. Just the luck of the draw.

I used one in my shop for over 6 years. I had to rebuild the pump once when it was 4 years old. Probably a few thousand bikes went up and down on that thing. Everything from dirt bikes to Gold Wings. I sold it last year when I updated all the lifts in my shop and the guy that I sold it to says it still works great. It's a great lift for the home mechanic working on your own bikes and a few buddies. The only thing about these newer H.F. lifts that suck is the front clamp. But, you can buy a cheap condor and bolt it down.

I've had mine now for about 5 or 6 years and not one issue. More than 15 bikes have used the lift and never an issue. I did but on a decent chock instead of the clamp from day one. For the price, I can't complain. 10X better than working on the floor.
