I am in the market for a motorcycle jack and this one is relatively cheap at Home Depot. Anyone ever used this thing? Comments? Other recommendations for an inexpensive jack? (no homemade wooden ones please)

About the only MC jack that I've heard complaints on is the model from Sears (Craftsman), though I have one, and haven't had a problem with it yet.

I've had a few Harbor Freight jacks (automotive) leak oil as a result of seal failure, but I think that is a random problem with most hydraulic jacks.

I have it (from Northern Tool) and I like it. It works great. Put my DJ drive and lowering bones on using it. :)

I have one of those and a Craftsman. Of the two I grab this one first. Mine is six years old now with no problems. 8)

Looks just like mine.

I've been using mine for about a year now with no problems...came from Pep Boys. It has been used quite a few times.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Bikes on it right now...
Why is your bike on the stand? You're in California. Mods maybe?
Cleaning spokes :)

Naw I was messing with an idea for a brace to hold an exhaust pipe on the left side of the bike...

Looks like tha one has a design change with the wheels . I had to take my four metal wheels off as they were not spring loaded and when I jacked my bike up on my shed on a ply wood floor the weight cause the metal wheels to sink into my floor :x But the jack part is great. lets ride.
