Looking for a replacement lift table for my LT, since the prior one was stolen whilst we were on holiday in SoCal last month.
Since the LT is about 860# with a full tank of go-juice, I feel safe in getting a 1,000# capacity table instead of a 1,500# one. Any thoughts to the contrary?
Here are some of the tables I am considering, each of the names is a hyperlink to the web page with product info. Please chime in if you have any experience or knowledge about these tables or the organizations selling/supporting them.
HANDY LIFT Standard 1000
: $954 + about $200 shipping = $1154 total
HARBOR FREIGHT 1000# Lift
: $364 (tax included), pickup at store = no shipping = $364 total
WEAVER LIFT TX-1000
: $620 + tax = $671.15, pickup at warehouse = no shipping = $671.15 total
: $649.50 + about $200 shipping = $849.50 total
: $719.50 + + about $200 shipping = $919.50 total
KERNEL 1000# LIFT TABLE
: $674.50 + $200 freight of pickup in Cleburne, TX (fairly close) for free = $674.50 + tax = $730.15 total (looks just like the TX-1000 and same specs, but $60 more).
I am leaning towards the TX-1000 at present. Has a lift out rear panel, comes with the wheel chock, and I can pick it up in Ft Worth and save the freight. Will cost me about $50 for fuel and U-Haul trailer rental, but that is still $150 less than estimated freight. The Kernel looks the same as the TX, can also be picked up in the D/FW area, but the TX is about $60 less.
I like the Titan 1000 also. It is similar to the TX, but comes with the "dolly," and rollers for rear drop-out section. It is about a foot longer than the others (typically 84", this one is 97"!), and it raises to 37" (compared to 30" for the TX). It also comes with a ramp extension to prevent bottoming out low-slung bikes when loading onto the table. Not sure if this is worth the $150 premium, though.
What is not to like about the HandyLift? Other than the premium price, that is.
Your thoughts and opinions, please, including suggestions for other
tables I should consider as I prepare to purchase a replacement table.
