Much more compact and easier to store. Very easy to lift. I even had my wife lift the rear tire on my Yamaha R1 with 1 hand.
Great stand! Took about 10 min. to set up for my 2018 KLR650 so I could get a 1" clearance off the ground. I was told by friends that it wouldn't work for my bike. They all bought other cheaper stands but I did my research and bought a WOODCRAFT ADJUSTABLE REAR PAD STAND. This is the best purchase ( after my KLR) that I've made in a LONG time. So sturdy I sat on the bike while it was on the stand. My buddies would never do that.
Nice stand. I like the system over all.
I have been using Woodcraft products for over 15 years & have never had any issues. I like being able to buy replacement parts for Woodcraft item 15 years old. Keep up the good work, always looking to see what new products Woodcraft will come out with next.
