10/2/55 Amp, 6/12 Volt Battery Charger/Engine Starter
Item #66783 on sale now for $29.99 with coupon.

This charger doesn't have very good reviews, mostly due to people not understanding terminal corrosion etc., but it's a good charger with a very heavy duty transformer. Interestingly it's rated as a 10 amp charger but it'll put out a continuous 17 amps on a battery that has been discharged to 12.2 volts. To do that you need to set the "Setting" switch to "Start" and the "Function" switch to "Charge". On this setting it will also take the battery voltage up to 16 volts which is useful for equalizing batteries.

If you set both switches to "start" it'll put out 55 amps for 1 minute max when the auto reset circuit breaker will click off.

I used to have a harbor freight just down the road from me. I've bought alot from them and have been more satisfied than not.

pneumatic framing nailer on sale for $69.99. Finished my entire basement with it and it worked flawlessly. Sometimes shot sparks with the nail - but always put the nails where you want them.

Pneumatic brad nailer for $15.99. Same deal. worked great.

Movers dollies? I've got three big ones and three little ones. The big ones go under the skis and little ones under the tracks and three of my snowmobiles ride around on these for the entire off season. Works great.

30' tow strap for $9.99. I keep one in each snowmobile and one in the Jeep (before I sold it). They've never failed me either.

I'm really considering the tire changer - but it appears I need an adapter for motorcycle wheels?

The motorcycle tire adapter was discontinued a few years ago. Just before I decided to get one

I have the m/c adapter but don't use it, never have - works fine without it. AFAIR, the only thing it does is anchor the top of the solid steel bar that fits in the center of the wheel.

Nope, you are thinking about the top bar from the motorcycle attachment. That currently lives in a pile somewhere here as well. The motorcycle attachment is the part that has the rim clamp in the Y configuration. Without that the tire changer is just a pole.

Yes, indeed. Wouldn't be much use w/o the clamp. Over time that useless L-shaped piece has morphed into THE motorcycle attachment in my mind.

2/10

I bought a rear stand from these guys about 8 months ago. I set it on the floor and the left wheel snapped clean in half. Imagine if I had tried to lift my bike and had it snap! The bike would have crashed to the ground. I returned the product immediately for a full refund. I wont buy anything there anymore. I give the experience 2/10. 1 point for being able to purchase it easily and 1 point for being able to return it easily.

I find as long as you look at what you buy it's OK. But they do have some junk there.

Most issues of RIDER magazine have a coupon for this lift at the best price I've seen.

I've had my air over hydraulic (an upgrade) for about 4 years. I use it a lot, and it has held up great! I bought it with a coupon for $299, and a 20% off coupon. $240!

I have had my lift for 3 years now and it has been great, i have the air and foot pump but never use the air. I leave it up for days at a time with a bike on it and no leaks or creeping down. This is one HF item that is worth it.
