What type of Jack/Lift do you use?
I'm looking for a new jack. Not sure if I want a jack or lift table. Primary use will be general maintenance, service, and maybe cleaning. I'm a novice mechanic but always learning to do more. Help me!!!!

I've been using an inexpensive harbor freight bike jack for years. Works good for most things, doesn't make things as easy as a table would.

I've had a aluminum Craftsman jack for 10 years now with no problems. Recently got a harbor freight table lift I like it not much use yet to give a good review. I will say you have to put a better wheel chalk on this lift. What it comes with is crap.

Been using a Harbor Freight table lift for a few years now. As stated, change out the wheel chock. I welded together some frames that are removable from the table and topped them with plywood so I can ride my bikes right up onto the lift

Been using a $100 Larin for 15 year without fail. Does everything I needed it to do. A buddy just bought a Pitbull lift. Its a nice jack and a much stouter jack than mine, but also cost a good bit more. In the end, they both do the same thing.

I used the red craftsman jack for several years without any problems. I did however buy the harbor freight lift table a couple of years ago and that's been great. I use that for everything. Comes in handy for a work bench when the bike isn't on it

I like my Larin lift for general maintenance and service. Helps to get the wheels off the ground or even just to support a bike upright. For building or major surgery I use my HF table. You can get the work right up in front of you and use the top as a work surface for tools and parts.
