That’s a handy looking machine! Removing a cutter bar from a 10’ discbine, positioning weldments, removing loaded tractor tires/wheels – the uses could be endless! I should get out more often to see these things!

My brother just scored a used Craftsman motorcycle lift.  Normally I think it's over $200, he got it for $80.  This is designed for a street bike.  I'd think you could also use it to lift the tire, especially if you had the center of the tire straddle the 2 rubber strips in the first photo.


What he bought it for: we both have 1963 Porsche 356s we are restoring at the same time, and as you may or may not know, the engine comes out from below.  He thought we could both use this to put our engines back in.  He was blown away that it's a perfect fit to the width of the case of the engine, see the second pic.


So look for a HF version, or a used one on eBay or Craigslist, I think it should work well for taking off a big truck or minivan wheel.

I'm getting old and have back trouble and am looking for an easy way to remove a tire and wheel while inspecting brakes. I admit the Stag wheel isn't the problem but my minivan wheel is. 


 I keep seeing HF has the self loading dolly's. I really don't need to lift the car with it, but have other found a cheaper solution to remove a wheel wheel while it is in the air?
