Torin Recreational Vehicle Lift - 3/4 Ton, Model# T64017
Great lift for the money!
I bought this lift direct from the store and it is great. I saw the exact same lift at another big store for $150. I have a pretty big cruiser that is pushing 800lbs and this lift did the job! One tip I will give you is once you get the bike to the desired hieght use the safety stops and lower the lift until the safety engages, this improves the stability greatly! Have fun with your new lift! I love mine!

It works as stated on the product. I wish it raised higher and can be tilted if bike isnt centered. I have used the lift and for the price its worth the money.

I have had this Torin motorcycle jack for over 9 years. It supports the weight of my Honda GoldWing and works fine. It's great for cleaning the wheels and there have been many times I have left the bike sitting on the jack for days at a time while doing repairs. I have even had both wheels off at the same time to replace the tires and balancing the m/c was not an issue. Can you buy a bigger more expensive m/c jack? Sure. But this one does the job just fine. No problems.

Do not buy for a HD bagger. My bike is not low and this thing would not fit under without modification. Jack assembly broke on the first lift! Missing parts from box. Not impressed. Not the lift for a 20K motorcycle!

I have found this product to be quite useful whether I am doing simple maintenance and cleaning as well as more involed repairs of large and small motorcycles.
I use this particular lift more often than my larger table lift mostly due to the portability. I can secure the bike with tie-downs and move it around the shop whenever I need room for another bike .I also bring it with me when I travel or go to motorcycle events ( races,rallies,shows)
The only drawback is that some custom motocycles are too low for the lift to fit under,but with a little assistance you can overcome this.
I have recommened these to other motorcycle enthusiest and they are very satisfied.

Need A Lift
After watching me struggle to service my Harley Lowrider, my wife bought me this jack. What a difference it has made. I can now work on my bike easily changing fluids, fork tuneups, truing wheels, etc. My only problem is getting my very low Lowrider under the bike. Most people won't have this problem. Also my kickstand interferes. It takes 2 of us to get it under, one holding the bike upright while the other positions the jack, but once done I can work away alone. If this thing ever fails, I will immediately buy another. Maybe they will come up with a lower and lighter ( aluminum ) one. That would be the cats meow.

Works as advertised
The price was right and it arrived right on time. I've only assembled and put it under the Harley today. So far, so good.
If you have a Heritage Softail Classic, you'll need a little finesse to get this lift under the frame. I just rolled it backwards onto a 1" board under the rear tire. Then when I tipped the bike up off its stand, I could easily slide the jack under the frame with my foot.
I don't find it that easy to push my 700lb motorcycle on the smooth garage floor on this jack. But it works and I can now get my car in the garage for the first time since I bought the bike seven months ago.

Good unit for the price.
I have two motorcycles, neither of which has a center-stand. This lift makes working on them much easier, especially anything to do with the wheels (chain tensioning, etc.). If collapses down fairly flat which makes storage fairly easy. The lifting action is smooth. Make sure you have some tie-downs handy so that the bike does not shift once you have it up. The weak point, to me, is that one of my bikes is a cruiser with low ground clearance and the lift does not collapse quite low enough to get under it without having to shift things around. That said, I would easily recommend this to a friend who wants to do some work on his bike or even just to get it up for a good thorough wash of the wheels. I looked around online before buying this unit and the price cannot be beat for what it is. There were some smaller scissor lifts available but I didn't think they looked like they would hold up or perform as well as something more solid like this unit. NOTE: the first unit that I picked up had an issue with some clearances, making the collapsed height way too high for my needs. I took it back and they immediately swapped it out for another one, taking it out of the box first to ensure that the new one had the correct clearance. Thumbs up for making things right, Northern Tool.

Does what it's supposed to do and works well. Good price, but I have seen similar lifts a little lower in price. Would be nice if it was easier to get under very low vehicles, also wheel locks could be a little more easier to apply (kind of stiff). Overall it works well and it's just what I need to work on my Harleys.
