Hey guys. I want to buy an Atv jack to do just basic tire/rim swap and brake jobs on my 2018 Grizzly with 28’s and have been looking and came across this one. Seems to lift an 1“ or 2 higher then most bulky Atv jacks. (Says 17.5” it will raise to). Anyone have this one? Also. Do you lift the Grizzly by going in with the jack on the side (in between front and back tire) or do you go from the front or back of the Atv with the jack? Thanks in advance.

My buddy has this one, and it seems to work really well. I have always lifted centered from the side, but that's personal preference:)

I can't speak to that one, but it sure looks solid! I haven't tried that one but I ended up with the one below a month ago for tire swaps and shock swaps. Was under $100, quality and fit/ finish is.. adequate. I had to add a washer to make one piece fit properly. So not the best quality control. But I feel like for 2+- uses a year, it should last years. Granted its heavy and bulky but it holds up the WHOLE atv from the center at once. Was very stable. It has 4 tie down spots to use straps over the ATV so the ATV doesn't rotate off if you are torquing something down. I am pleased with it despite the only average quality. In the picture I attached, you can see the jack in use. I never took a great picture of the jack when in use so this is the best.

That one looks good also. Right on!

Question though. With the one I posted. Should I be jacking it up from the side of the Atv between the front and rear tires? Or should I be jacking it up with the jack sliding in from the back or front of the Atv? Just don’t want to screw anything up. I’m a freak lol

And lastly do I have to remove the center plastic skid plates it comes with from factory before I jack it up?

I know nothing about the jack you are interested in but it doesn’t look like a atv jack. This is what I use, I needed to add two 2x8x22 inch boards to the top of the jack so my wheels would clear the floor. And to answer your question about jack position, from the side between the front and back tires. I have never had a problem with jacking it up with the plastic on, the plastic is pretty tough.

I bought this Aluminum Craftsman one:
Sears.com

I have the Yamaha glide plate on my Grizzly and I have lifted it completely off the ground with this jack from either side between the wheels and from the front without any issues. I frequently use the jack just to move the Grizzly around my 2 1/2 car garage or just to spin it around 180 degrees for lighting purposes depending if I'm working on the front or the back.

It is really high quality and since it is made of aluminum, it is relatively light (only 44 lbs!) But, it is pricey relatively speaking. I got it on sale for $198 directly from Sears. I know there are cheaper ones out there that do the same job. But, I don't have any regrets buying this one since I use it so much and it works so well for me. PLUS, if I ever need to put the lift into the back of my truck, my back will be thanking me for spending the extra money! ;-)

I leave the plastic skid plates on personally. As to the location, if you are just taking the tires on/ off, I would say do front and back separate sliding it from the front or back of ATV, not side. Reason I say this is that jack in your pict looks skinnier so I dont know if it could hold up the whole ATV and be stable without jack stands. So just keep one set of wheels on the ground when jacking form front or back. I chose the side on my jack as its wide (and bulky) so I can lift the whole ATV at once and still be stable, otherwise, I would jack from front or back lifting both front or back wheels together.

I just remembered I took a few pictures when I used the jack the first time to lift the Grizzly:

OK, it was a little more than "a few"... LOL!

Hey thanks for the opinion on the 89 dollar lift. I'm going to hold out for the aluminum sears one. I love how high it gets the Grizzly off the ground. I wish it had urethane wheels though because my garage floor is polished.

You should definitely wait for it to go on sale. It seems like it goes on sale quite frequently from the short time that it I was shopping for a lift. Also, when I bought mine, the salesman said that I could save $60 if I signed up for a Sears credit card and bought the lift with it.

I wonder if you can put urethane wheels on it. I wouldn't be surprised if you could find them online.

That Sears lift looks nice for sure. I'm jealous despite only paying $95 for my avergage quality Chinese one. Does the Sears one have a strong metal 'lock' bar on it that can be flipped in place after lifting then flip the lock in place and let the lift down a little until it hits the lock? This way the hydraulics are not holding up the ATV. It's tough to tell from the picture.

Yes, it has a safety lock that goes across the lifting arm. You can see the metal release lever in some of my pictures:
https://photos.app.goo.gl/cHHs3BSg7Cehsji28

But, it is not a manual lock. It engages automatically when your lifting. You can actually hear it click into place while you are lifting. Then to lower the lift, you need to lift the lever on the lever to release the lock.

@Stargate ,

I think these two pictures show the safety lock the best.

Then that jack seems like a big winner! And it's probably lighter than mine too. Mine is close to 55 lbs.
