I have the pitbull for 17 years. Changed the bottle Jack once. Also the screws which hold it to floor will rust out occasionally and need replaced. I think the actual thread in the frame is shot this time as a new bolt feels stripped out already. See how good the lifetime warranty is if I can find the original receipt!

This was the video comparison that sold me on my J&S Jack.  It's a head to head comparison between J&S and Pitbull and some other POS...

Thanks for posting that video, dm.

I'm in the market for a better lift even as my cheap one has reached the end of life (hey, it was only $89 bucks on sale....) but it was cheap and in the video mine reminds me of the Harbor Freight unit...time for a change/upgrade.

I'm going J&S.  I like everything about it and the video comparison sold me.  Now onto the quest for the best price.... ;D

A point I would make about the J&S jack I use, is that it has a smaller footprint for those of us with space limitations. I store mine vertically against a wall when not in use. I'm sure the Pitbull unit would be fine, but I went with the smaller size...

Thanks for the suggestion, OBB, but I don't do da bookface.... ;D

Actually, a member here has offered their used J&S for a fair price....considering that option.

I did find that the J&S website offers free shipping at $499.  If you go to Amazon, J&S offers the same jack for $470....with $59 for shipping.  Cheaper to order it from the main site....hmmmmm

 :2vrolijk_21:
I don't know what Pitbull makes right now, so this might be what's available new, and I'm working with out-of-date info.  Two things I noted: That video is a pure infomercial, probably made by, or for, J&S.  Second, I've never used a Pitbull that was like the one in the video--the one I've used is much different and built much better.

The big plus about having all four wheels oscilate is that you can move the bike any direction you want both horizontal to you or perpendicular, if you catch my drift.  Great for moving bike around garage thru space that wouldn't accomodate moving it horizontally.

Just pulled the trigger on the J&S jack with the oil tray etc. Just seemed like the right way to go. Price was fair.

Not taking any chances with the new ride.

Me too....getting mine used via a member here.  Very good price and looking forward to using it.  Reviews sold me....I'll post when it's received and once I've used it a couple times.

J&S jacks are made in the USA and are worlds apart from ANY OTHER JACK, PERIOD.  https://jsjacks.com/
