Anyone ever try this? The description from the catalog says that it uses a hand crank instead of a hydraulic bottle jack. Work better or worse? I know it's over $300, but I'm willing to pay a bit more if it is worth it. I live in Alaska, so some of the other options aren't really viable (too much to ship; the dealer here charges catalog price on anything over $100, so the HD jack seems to be a pretty good deal). I can get the Sears lift for about $100, but I wanted to know if the HD lift is better quality.
Thanks for your input!

Craftsman motorcycle jack from sears. All the quality you will ever need for $100.00 bucks.

The HD jack is really nice, i was eye balling one at the dealer a couple of weeks ago, but it costs a pretty penny, if i had money to blow i'd go for it.

I'm very happy with the Sear's lift. It's a good choice, and at $100 easier on the wallet.

If a hand crank fails on you it fails quickly where as if a hydraulic leaks on you it will not slam your bike to the ground as a hand crank will....

I have the sears jack and use it daily. Works great no problems.
