At least most of the time. I finally broke down and got a Table Lift. I can use it for of course Motorcycles, but also small tractors, mowers, ATV's and Decks. I think I may get my Son-in-Law to weld me on some extenders then I will be able to put the bigger tractors on there as well.

The Wife didn't get a picture with it all the way down.

Very nice! That will save your back! However, it looks skinny to put tractors on, and I dont know how much they lift. I have thought about lifts before and concluded that two motorcycle lifts next to each other would be fantastic for a tractor!

That's a real nice lift Bill and I'm sure your joints and muscles will be thanking you for getting it. I've thought about making some sort of lift to raise things up a bit. I have limited space so any lift would have to double as a GT parking spot when it's not in use. I used to spend hours at a time squatting down working on bikes when I was younger but if I try that now I pay for it the next day.

Ryan, Yes it is a bit narrow for a good size tractor. They make lifts with extenders that are removable but they are just out of my price range. HF use to have an affordable one but they quite carrying it about a year or so ago. So I'm going to make my own. I figure if I add a foot to each side that will do it and when I'm not working on tractors I can store them. It has a 1000 lb lift weight so it will lift my Harley no problem.

I started working on that old Baja last night and oh it was so nice to just have it at the right height. One thing if you get one from HF make sure you check the hydraulic fluid. This one was about empty.

Bill, glad to hear you got a "smarter, not harder" device. Looked at them once, but I need a permanent place to put one first :)

Nice lift Bill , is your SIL going to make sides for it or he going to make frame lifts like I seen on those auto lifts ? The kind you that would drive the GT over the lift the lifts ( jack stands or blocks) would catch the tractor frame and when you raised the lift the wheels would be off the ground ? , Al

Not if you have a truck to pull it with. The Poulan Hemorrhoid was dead when I pulled it up there.
