    You are so cold Bruce. I did not negotiate or haggle at all on the price that he gave me over the phone. I even drove downtown to pick them up. If something is already a great deal don't risk it.

    Yeah, you put them on each side and them strap them on and jack it up and away you go. You only have to lever it up an inch or so off the ground to get the forks under it and because it is all strapped together, it is pretty hard for it to fall off or tip over like with skates on uneven surfaces. The only downside is that they weigh around 200 pounds each and you almost need something to carry them with!

    thats how i do it, with the assistance of a madman inspired toe jack. i would like a set of those as they look sooo easy. I'd add brakes and maybe even a drive to one set of wheels.....the notion of getting 4000 lbs to roll easily on a slopped garage floor by yourself is what you wish for...until you get it. and then things can be dangerous without an easy way to control it

    Cold?? Notice that Mike has failed to mention the price he paid for the Rol-a-lifts. I rest my case.

    I'm skeptical. Its hard for me to believe that Mike would part with that much cash. I wish there was a recording of the transaction....

    With Mike, there's usually a Widow involved in the transaction

    Nice acquisition Mike! This is one of those tools that's great for a friend to have
