you can print a coupon online that brings it to 299

this code works if you want to order it online #11890073
some people have called and placed the order over the phone and picked it up at the store.
Thanks for this.

did you check out the high position lift?

99887 - $180 - less coupons and tax $152

saw them advertised as low as $149 last year




I may swing away at this one

pros: open bottom access to plugs, height, wheel access, high jack controls

cons: not drive-on, hard to store, potentially flimsy, kinda one sided

There is a coupon in the new Easyriders magazine for the Harbor freight model for $299. I picked up a used Handy lift on Craigslist not long ago for about the same money.

I'm thinking this might be one for me as well. Need to run by HF to check it out on Black Friday to see if it imspires confidence and if they have a local special deal....

I've been looking for a SAMII on Craigslist for while, so far, nothing coming around, so the HF high one is slated as interim piece, confident it can be modded for bigger bike, used for lawnmower repairs later. HF stuff is cheesy, just have to split the difference on less used stuff or weigh options
