But you wont get the Harbor Freight price. I think that's why most of us buy them and customize them to fit our needs.
When I was shopping for a lift table and the reason I bought a Harbor Freight was even with good deals on better tables, the shipping alone was insane. I had quotes where the shipping was near the price of the HF table out the door.
If I were in a shop it would be one thing, but for home, the HF was some small mods is a deal that's really hard to beat.

I have a Harbor Freight store not far from me so shipping is not an issue. Makes the price even sweeter without having it shipped.

They will put it in your truck or trailer for you, but just remember, when you get home, it will take two body builders to get it out.

That's what I heard. Going to wait until they have some form of spring sale.

You can get them for $299 anytime with a coupon they aren't hard to find.

The cheapest they have gone for is $269 and that's just at some parking lot sales. Only seen it a few times, and if your waiting till the next one to save $30 well hell that's not even a tank of gas.

Here is one good till February, Merry XMAS

They have two different models. One goes up to 29 1/2. The other up to 32". So make sure you get the one you really want.

Really -- Glad you told me now because I bought one a couple years ago, brought it home in a Honda Insight (hybrid) had to take it out of box to get it in the car and got it out of car and onto my porch in Jersey solo.
You just have to know how to wrestle things around.

Sorry not familiar with sickle lifts at all, but I'm thinking it would be cool.
1. What is the mechanism, air driven or pump like a hydraulic jack?
2. Is it on castors where you can move it around easily?
3. Thx!

The lift pumps up using your foot and yes you can move it a little,but with the bike on it, it is difficult.

Did you use the two existing holes for the front of the chick and drill two more for the back? I got both things yesterday just wanting to put the chock on today. Any link to the install? Thx
Yes. If you look at the third picture down on the first page, that is a HF chock. You can drill a couple holes in the cross bar. I just added another cross bar and put larger washers, to hold it.

I didn't even use the cross bar just bolted to the metal table but then again I have angle iron bolted on to help distribute the weight. Tomato/Tamoto
