Pitbull Motorcycle lifts

I just ordered one plus the turntable and found out at checkout that they've got a 2-4 week lead time now. They're offering the lift and turntable at a discount and the young lady I spoke with on the phone about the extended lead time said Pitbull was giving the discount to compensate for the delay.

Just an FYI for anyone planning to buy from them - $90 off the lift and $20 off the turntable through the end of this month. Lift=$399 - Turntable=$175 - Freight to my zip in Texas = $108. The discount covered my freight.

After thoroughly checking out lifts, I went with the heaviest and most ruggedly built. Expensive??? A little, maybe, but... Peace of mind = priceless, imho. Rarely has buying according to "you get what you pay for" surprised me. If I'm lifting the scoot off the floor, I don't want to EVER worry about the jack dropping it. The turntable option sealed the deal in my mind - hard to beat sitting in one spot and spinning the bike to get where you wanna be.

Admins, I couldn't tell where this thread belonged so I parked it here. Feel free to move it if necessary - like you need my blessings, lolol...

I've had mine since 2003 and still love it. I could probably use a new jack since mine leaks a bit if I forget to close the valve after lowering the bike, but it still functions perfectly. I checked their website for a replacement jack and was comforted because a replacement jack from them is quite reasonable! Great product!!!

Thanks for the reassurance. My wife gets on to me for always having to buy the most expensive crap out there but when it comes to a lift, I didn't want to scrimp. I did lots of research before buying and the pitbull was my pick over the J&S. In my case, the turntable was the deciding factor between the two.

I will add to the re-assurance! LOVE MINE! Bought it before last winter and it was used all winter while the bike was disassembled. I did not get the standard and at time wish I had so I could add the turn table. I was told it was easier to work under the bike with the Dyna model.

No straps all winter setting like this I even sat on it like this so I could measure one last time for the apes I was ordering

I have a Pit Bull, no turn table though. Love it, but wish I got the model with the air compressor attachment.

By the way, I bought mine for the Fat Boy, but now I have a Road Glide. No problem using the same lift, right?

That is a good price for the Pitbull. I bought a J&S based it being cheaper than the Pitbull. The J&S runs $442 delivered - on sale the Pitbull is only $500 (Lift and shipping). Pitbull - very good deal on a great lift.

That's a helluva shot, hehe.... I'm thinking I made the right choice, for sure. I really kinda wanted a table lift but my wife's already griping about the fact that my bike gets to stay in the garage and her MKZ doesn't. Plus, for what I do, the pitbull will do very well.

I have a Pit Bull and an EZ Up centerstand. The RG is not as stable as the demo I saw in Sturgis but I still free confident the RG is going to stay put. Great product.
