My new Handy Lift

Those of you who know me know I've been wanting this for a LONG time!

Should make all sorts of maintenance a lot less strain on the old back.

Seems well-made and easy to use - photo of K RAPIDO on it as soon as K RAPIDO finds her way back from S FL.

Got the 12" side extensions as well, for the Snapper and ATV.

Thanks to Pirate for his help.

Talking Handy Lift

You lucky dog! I want one of those things also. I'm a little worried about how it will fit in the garage space. Still, I really NEED one of those things! Mebbe I'll brake down and do the deal at the Cycle World MC show in Seattle this December.

Now you no longer have any excuse for dirty wheels.

I wound up buying the Harbor Freight model for $300. It was all I could afford but it works. Congrats on getting a good one and like the rest I am jealous.

I've had one for 10 years and I love it . Mine is electric , and has a 36inch table . It was a add-on by a buddy ,, they used it to build some sort of printer on it .
I put the bike , lawn tractor , snow blower , Hell i've even thrown a table cloth over it and used it as a serving table for yard partys !!!

Why would anyone want clean wheels?

Anyway, if it can lift an ATV I guess it can lift a K1200RS.

The ideal way to install is to figure where you want to place it, then recess it into the concrete. Allows you to park the bike on it, or even park a car over it, just watch out for the vise. That's how mine will be as soon as I build a "real" garage!

Downside is that the little itty-bitty stuff that falls off the bike when you're working on it always heads for the inaccessible spots in the recesses of the floor. Sometimes, if you're lucky, a magnet will retrieve the errant parts. But, say for instance you're working on the windscreen, the little plastic parts that sit in the standoffs will hide where they can't be got. Some axiom of Murphy's law, I understand.

A reasonable compromise between the cheaper chinese lifts and the granddaddy Handy might be here. Solves the space issue and made in the good ol USA. If the lifts are anything like their trailers it will be a first rate device.

That is a pretty slick looking set up. I did the chinese thing because of price and no shipping. I was able to pick it up by the house at the store. I looked at others but for a $600 lift it was still $175 minimum to deliver to the house. I don't make my living working on bikes and the chinese lift put the beemer up without a problem so all is well and fine. I park the turbo Kaw on the lift so it never sits empty taking up space.
