All made by the same company

for the most part. I just bought this one from harbor freight tools. Most of their stuff I wouldn't buy but as for a $89.00 cycle jack, this one worked great and stable. The area I work on isn't perfect level and this jack held it stable even when pulling the 240 off the back. I'm not much of a fashion/buying a name type-o-guy LOL. If it works for a great price, It is mine.

I Bought the steel Craftsman jack from sears. it locks in three possessions to take the weight off the cylinder. Fits under the bike perfect and is vary stable.

I've tried the craftsman and I don't like it. The bike tends to rock and also I will be using the jack as a dolly to put my bike to side. Garage space is kinda tight right now and I would like to be able park both of my vehicles in there along with my bike.

Getting ready to pull the trigger on this one, everyone still happy with it? How stable is it when moving the bike around? Sears reviews seem pretty good overall. Thanks for any input:bigthumbsup:

Harbor Freight has had their aluminum lightweight jack (believe it is the same one that Sears carries) for $109.00 on sale. Unfortunately, it is back up to $169.00 now though.

I have the red Sears one and it is very stable as long as you have it correctly balanced under the bike and use the straps tied down to your handlebars. I use mine as a dolly with no problems.
