Decided to pull the trigger on one and found out that today it's on sale (reg $135) for 89.99 + you can use the 20% off coupon code 10020552 and get it for $71.99! The guy told me the will be having the same sale for Black Friday and will have a 25% coupon!

Great deal IMO!:)

I bought mine a few years back. The thing works great.

My friend ends up using it more than I do for his vStar 1100 though. LOL.

My only complaint is the slightest bit of oil takes off the rubber pads, so be sure not to get any on there.

Just yesterday I had taken mine out of the box to test it in preparation to store the bike for winter. I received the email with the coupon from Harbor Freight and since I purchased it under 30 days I was able to get the discount price and used that to buy some needed tools with it. Not a bad deal. Hope the jack holds up well.

That thing is always on sale, at least here. Because I'm always contemplating on getting the darn thing too I check it periodically, I can't remember one time it wasn't $89. It's actually $69 right now. :tongue:


Im going to get my $20 bucks back, them bassturds! That will buy a case a beer which will aid in boxing it!

The moment I finally decide to buy one all the sales for it stopped and it went back up to $94.99. It was that way for months. 'Bout time them tards!

I use this, obviously for more than just the bike. Comes in pretty handy to lift just about anything I can throw at it. Had the bike on it a couple times. Makes it real easy to clean and change oil or many other things without having to get down on the ground.

I used mine this weekend to jack up a honda civic ass end and install a fart can. Foot controls rule!

I've been looking for a motorcycle jack for a while. Really didn't want to spend a lot of money and I stumbled upon this thread. The jack everyone's talking about is the Pittsburg Automotive "1500 lb. Capacity ATV/Motorcycle Lift" sold by Harbor Freight.

The coupon code Slick mentioned above is no longer valid, so I just Googled "harbor freight coupon code" and found one that worked! I got it for $71.99 (plus tax and shipping)!

13059055

There's the code that worked just now. When it expires, hopefully there will be a new one waiting. :)

p.s. Can't wait for my jack to get here!

Finally had a chance to put the jack together and test it out. Not bad at all–great value for the price.

The instructions say that you should only use the jack for raising and lowering–not to support the load while working on the bike. Just wondering if this is a big deal? I mean, I don't plan on storing the bike lifted on the jack or anything, but I'd like to work on it while on the jack.

Is this Pittsburg Automotive just trying to protect themselves or does it actually matter?

It's pretty well standard measure for hydraulic jacks. Nothing to be concerned about. Also they don't like you getting under it without proper support as in some sort of safety blocks or stands. Personal safety first always.
