Choosing an ATV lift on a budget


Buying an ATV Lift on a Budget by Redline Engineering LLC

Trying to decide the correct type of ATV lift on a budget? For the enthusiasts with deep pockets it’s a sure fire bet they’ll buy a big hydraulic table with side extensions, support poles and the whole nine yards. However, for those of us looking to perform routine maintenance on our quads, snow mobiles or whatever else you may have found, I suggest looking into a smaller more compact lift.

Isolating the uses for the lift will influence what you need to buy. Some are made mainly for supporting the bike so it doesn’t fall over when you get off of it. They run about $130.00. Others are less complex with no moving parts and start in the neighborhood of $50.00

There are still many options out there depending on what kind of toy you’ve latched on to. Some of the smaller 4-wheelers will work perfectly fine on a Redline Multi Purpose jack. As a standard they have a lift capacity of about 1250 lbs and since they are on casters, moving them around the shop once elevated is a simple task. These lifts average from $250.00 to $300.00. Is that a little too much? If you don’t need that much metal, I would recommend a Redline MX Moto lift. They come with and without casters and will lift your bike to almost chest height. These scissor lifts are very handy to have when it comes to a bit more in depth repairs. This particular style goes for around $150.00.

The middle of the road atv lift utilizes a gas shock and lever style pedal to slightly raise the machine. These are ideal for cleaning and doing very minor repairs. These will lighten your wallet by about $60.00 to $100.00

The main thing is to take your time when deciding what you need. Go over a couple of questions such as:

  1. How often am I going to use it?

  2. What are the limits to which I’m comfortable working on my own bike?

  3. Will I regret buying too small a lift or vice versa?
