“I am so impressed with this product I am seriously considering going back to HF in the morning to grab another pack of four. My old set had the bare metal edges and when tightened down would cut into my hand if I didn’t use gloves. I especially like the plastic handles on these to remedy that situation. Great product for the price.” – by BeninChesapeake from Virginia

Get Pumped with Quality Motorcycle Lifts

Even when treated with the utmost care and attention, all motorcycles will eventually need repair. This is where having a motorcycle lift comes in handy, especially for the dye-in-the-wool wrenchers and DIYers. Whether performing an overhaul or just fitting new motorcycle accessories onto your baby, a motorcycle lift jack is a wise addition to your battery of motorcycle tools. Although some routine maintenance can be done with your motorcycle leaning its side stand, any serious work usually requires the bike to be lifted up.

Even dirt bikes that come with a center stand can be more conveniently serviced when using a good motorcycle lift jack. When servicing large bikes, a motorcycle lift jack is an absolute must. With all the options out there, just how do you choose the right motorcycle lift for you?

Pittsburgh Auto Aluminum Racing Jack: Off-Road’s Tool of the Month

image_11503

In the April, 2014 issue of Off-Road magazine, staff writer Jay Kopycinski declared the Pittsburgh Automotive line of aluminum racing jacks the Tool of the Month! Jay chose to demonstrate with the 2-Ton model (SKU #68051) because, as he put it:

“Its size seems perfect for most off-road trucks running larger tires.”

It’s no wonder that this high-performance jack would receive such lofty accolades. It practically pays for itself in no time! Use it to install tires on a truck, replace tire rods on a wagon, do brake jobs, replace shocks on an SUV, etc. With its high-quality construction, the jack easily lifts cars, trucks and vans– and it’s far easier to maneuver than a steel floor jack of the same load rating. Take it with you on the road when pulling travel trailers and 5th wheels; it can take it! You’ll enjoy its relatively light weight– and its extremely light price of just $159.99!

Just read what this NASCAR mechanic had to say:

“I work,,in and out of different NASCAR shops rebuilding suspensions and designing them.All of the shops that I’m connected with have at least 15 to 20 of these jacks for “in the shop work”,not so much at the tracks because of the weight,,but in the shops they can’t be beat.Please ignore any of the negative reviews from the DIY’s,,these jacks are the best you can buy for the money.The jacks we use at the tracks are very good,,but extremely expensive,,but these Harbor Freight jacks have been perfect for the shops.They perform and hold up,,just as good,,if not better than a lot of the really expensive ones.We have yet to have one bleed down or pop,,when in use,,and believe me,,they get used.”  A.R.T.S – Atlanta, GA

The Pittsburgh Automotive 2-Ton Aluminum Racing Jack is available at both Harbor Freight Tools brick-n’-mortar stores and online.
