I've been using the Sears 1500 jack for the past 6 years. Had my Heritage and now my Ultra on it, with no problems.

I'm looking for a jack and this one is on sale right now. Would you buy this jack again ?

I've been using my red Craftsman floor jack for about 9 years with no problems and I use it on many different Harley models. The one problem was the rubber pads coming loose, solved that by drilling some holes and bolting the rubbers to the metal rails with stove bolts.

I bought the yellow Harbor Freight 1500 LB jack. I use it on my UC and love it. And it cost $99. I do check it before each use, but I would probably do that no matter what jack I had. It is just one of those things that the Amy instilled me.

I have an ultra classic and on black Friday 2 years ago at harbor freight I got a motorcycle lift that was rated at 1500lbs. For 55 dollars and love it! Makes cleaning it so much easier!
