Nice lift.

Just make sure you have a trailer or truck and a way to get the lift loaded and unloaded. Comes in a small coffin like box.

Will be adding some pics of the JB weld patch of that cover. If that does not work then I will look into MIG/TIG or other patch.

Bolted on my wheel chock tonight, makes things much easier. I can now push the bike onto the lift and have it captured by the chock and held upright, making the process of strapping it down by myself easy.

Love it so far!

No more of that talk or I'll put the leeches on you, understand?

Harbor freight auto chock. About $40 regular price.

You can't use it on its own but it'll hold it stable long enough to get up on a paddock stand or ratchet down.

Been reading this post, I have a HF lift that I picked up a few months ago. I will have to do the wheel chock mod, that is a great idea! I even think I have one running around the shed and not being used. Great place for it. Without the chock it is something to get the tie downs to release without tipping too much.

i bought one a few months ago. the older model which is 68892. it has a c channel for the main frame stronger setup than the 69904. I also bought the wheel chock upgrade from them. drilled holes in the table with some shorter stainless carriage bolts works perfectly.

I mounted up a Pingle removable wheel chock to my Harbor lift. Its nice and small compared to the others and its removable!!!! I use my lift for other things than just a motorcycle lift. With the chock removed, I have a nice large flat surface to work on.
