I bought the Sears Yellow jack. When shopping I also looked at the Sears Red jack you are looking at. What swayed me to get the Yellow, which cost more, were the reviews of both the red and the yellow jacks. There were several negative reviews on the red but no bad reviews on the yellow. And when I got mine, maybe 2 years ago, the online price was $179.95 but in the Sears store they were $199.95. I asked the Sears manager if he would match the online price to make the sale and he did. Since I bought mine I have noticed the yellow jack often goes on sale.

I too have the yellow one. What also makes it nicer is it is aluminum framed, so it is light weight easy to maneuver.

I saw the yellow one also, but for $80.99 plus tax, the red one was half the price of the yellow one. Just ordered my brake pads from J&P Cycles. I'm into my brake job for $170.00 which includes the jack. Next set of brakes will only cost me $75.00 to replace verses $390.00 at the dealership. Dealership wanted WAY too much for me to have to put up for three sets of pads and two hours of labor. I told the dealer nawwwww, I'll pass. Thanks anyway.

That will work. Just pay attention to your balance points.

I went with J&S. Costs more, but I have 0 complaints and it rolls around in every direction.

I bought the Sears lift a few years ago. Works great, but the welds on the handle were something like I would have made....broke off and need to be redone.

Doesn't one need to use the tie downs on the Sears products, but the J&E is so stable you cant unbalance it even with an entire wheel assembly off and don't need the tie downs?

I like the price on the yellow jack but will probably go with the J&E for safety.

Any thoughts yea or nay???

Joe, I never used the tie downs when using mine because it seemed stable enough for me to do whatever I was doing, and it never fell off any of the times I used it.

I can actually sit on my bike on the J&S. It would be hard to unbalance it. Had another jack before that I gave away. too difficult to get it balanced and bike came off one time, that was it for me.

80.00 is a good price for this jack though

I never use the ratcheting tie down straps that came with my Sears yellow jack. First time using it I was wondering about the straps and, even with a towel or two for cushioning, I don't like the straps going across my paint. But I rarely ever get my RG more than an inch or two off the ground and it seems stable enough for my cleaning, checking and adding air, etc., so I will likely never use the straps.
