I'm looking for a press to use in my home workshop. I normally use a
press at
a friends shop, but it is a bit inconvenient.  Browsing through the
Harbor Freight 
catalog, I see a whole bunch of different rated presses. Anyone willing
to share 
their experience?

Do I need a 45 ton unit?  Or can I get by with a 20 ton unit?

 What about the working range? Anyone have any problems with the lower
of the working range? (like the ones rated 8.5" Minimum.) I would think
range needs a minimum of 0" (Lower end) to be more useful.

What about the 'A' frame units compared to the regular square units?

I'll be using the press mostly to remove bearings from axles or pressing
broken lug nuts from the hubs.  (I don't like the hammer method. <g>)
