    Looks just like the Harbor Freight cycle lift. I would bet it is the same model, rebadged for Menards.

    Most guys like them, but I have issues putting a $20K-$30K motorcycle on one.

    Yes, looks like a HF lift. If it is the same, then the price is reasonable and it will get the job done.

    Lift

    Purchased one have 2 friends who make the HF lift work. I have about $2000 max bikes so if bike falls off not so painful unless bike falls on me. With the 5 or 10 ton traveling bridge hoist in my shop I think I can rig up safety straps so bike can’t fall on me. Last I think it will be easier to get help to get thing loaded at menards than HF. ( my WAG )

    I have two of these and have never had an issue with either of them. I use them individually or in tandem for my hacks. Not sure about loading at Menards vs HF but I've loaded/unloaded them by myself into my F150 no problem. Good to know there's another source.

    Interestingly enough, I have heard of getting help loading or an extra charge to help loading at HF.

    Probably best to bring help.

    I would hope so. It took three of use with my Handy lift and that was before I added the 8 inch side extensions.

    I can move my Handy by myself by rolling it around; would take three more of me to lift it. I have an Atlas hydraulic lift for the Ural. It took a ceiling mounted chain hoist to get it off the pallet and three men to roll it around.

    I can not imagine that Harbor Freight or Menards wouldn't have a forklift handy to scoot it into a pickup.

    HF wanted $25 for loading assistance when a friend of mine bought a lift. He is a big boy and his wife was with him. He stood it on end and his wife backed the truck up to the lift. He rested the lift on the tailgate and pushed it in.

    I cannot imagine our HF asking for payment for help loading something they just sold, but then this is Montana, not Massachusetts.

    Seems like things get weirder and more difficult to understand the closer you get to the coasts

    Likewise! I bought a tool chest combo at my local HF and they happily forklifted both pieces into my pickup at no charge.

    I’m not sure the difference is so much coastal as it is just the difference in managers. I have two FLAPS available close to me, across the street from each other. I always hit O’reillys first—their staff is super helpful, especially the female employees as they really know their stuff and approach things from the standpoint of helping me solve a problem. The all-male Autozone crew pretty much hangs out at the counter waiting to take orders and ring up sales. The two stores have the same labor pool available but very different management.

    Wife Annie was born and raised in Boston, I was born in Monterey California and I misspent my adolescence in Virginia Beach. I am quite familiar with costal weirdness.
