Them cheap floor of the rear wheel bracket broke right off first time I tried to use one of them and I was nowhere near the supposed lifting limit of that one.

I have two bike jacks from crappy tire($90 each, one was given to me), harbor freight and sears sells similar down in the states pretty cheap.
I've had my croozer up on mine, both tires off and its still pretty stable.
