Motorcycle lift

I am in the market for a motorcycle lift for the shed.

Anyone have experience with either of the two Moto Max lifts on eBay Australia at the time of writing? One is 590 wide and the other 660mm wide. 590 seems tight if using race stands.

Other alternatives? - budget is about $500. Can be hydraulic foot operated or air or both.

Ideally I would like to be able to ....
- use front and rear race/paddock stands on it.
- remove the ramp to save space.
- have a cutout or whatever to simplify rear wheel removal.

Go the bigger one and then be prepared to improve it further. Here is what we did to the one we bought to make it really handy https://www.ducati.ms/forums/17-chit-...cle-lifts.html refer Post #8 We do not have an oil trap - cannot need it, tray for oil changes fits under the bikes. We fit stands, remove wheels - truss bikes up - it all happens in our garage.

Thanks Jane,

I am checking out two lifts at a mate's tonight to compare dimensions.

Mod - yes, I can see some needed already, but looks to be a good starting point.
