    I saw an easy rizer at Birmingham NEC in 1999 and dreamed of one until 2012 when i bought one....NIGHTMARE!!!
    1. i couldn't find any1 who had it...even one of the people on there list who i know through racing bikes so couldn't 'try before I buy'
    2. No-one at the factory with any technical knowledge was available to talk to.
    3. There is no movement on price...even for trade purposes and taking into account it is considerably more expensive than an equal quality table
    4. They took weeks to post it
    5. Essential parts were missing on arrival
    6.it burns drills out unless you use a good quality and usually expensive drilling (technically adding to its price as it is a nuisance having to use a drill for jobs and the lift...usually meaning you will get fed up and buy another just for the lift)
    7. The wheel holders and other attachments were made to fit tightly....i assume with no thought for the powder coating to be applied during production adding to thickness, meaning that when you build the lift this gets damaged causing it to rust later and looking 'shabby' quite quickly...i also assume that this could corrode to the lift for people only using occasionally and potentially seize in place.
    8. It is very time consuming to change attachments if used in a workshop environment on various bikes and if extreme care isn't taken you could easily damage bike to be lifted.
    9. Extreme force was needed to remove wheel holders causing further damage
    10. Company accepted return, accused me of keeping the parts that were missing, as well as damaging it (i could not use it without taking the coating off it as there wasn't any tolerance)
    11. The boss was then aggressive and intimidating when i asked for a refund.
    12. No refund was given, yet they kept the product I paid for!!!!
    If/when I get chance i will try and get hold of one and put a video on YouTube with the things they don't want you to see

    In my opinion BEST AVOIDED

    Just to correct what some may believe/think, it's most likely not just threaded rod, but rather acme or buttress thread, like most screw jacks used on all kinds of lifts.
    just sayin'

    Love it the only lift to use on Tuber Buells we also made a wheeled cradle to set it in Then we use it to change water source heat pumps on shelves. Very stable and easy to use when you figure out all the adaptors

    I ordered it from the distributor. Great communication. Fast shipping. I also bought a high torque drill 1050 watts and 850 max rpm. It makes working on the bike a breeze. When done I just shove it in the corner.
