Nice! If I had floor space, I'd look into one!

You will like it. There is one in my shop right now, on loan from a friend and it is really nice not having to bend over all the time.

I've got one of those in my shop.  If you pull off the vise and wheel stop it's low enough a lot of vehicles could park over it.

 

Unless you're working on something fairly narrow you'll need to add wings to it.

Have one too. Made wider to fit tractors now. Still hard to get up close with width. OK most times, better than bent-over on floor at my age .

I have one, mostly used for bikes, but If I pull the vise off I can throw a sheet of heavy plywood on it for wider stuff.

Also handy as an elevator to get things up on the table or truck.

Its a real back saver

How are they for side stability with a GT on top?  I looked at them but was leery of the side to side stability.  I built mine 40" wide and 5' long but it is not all that movable.  Center removable for under type work.  You will really like the fact of no more bending or worse yet, up and down on the knees.
