    Shop Owner

    Posted by Brad on 23rd Jan 2018

    I am a shop owner and we primarily work on big twins and need a lift that can handle heavy loads and stays stable. Have had 2 of these lifts as well as a Handy Lift and have to say for the money you can't go wrong with this lift. Its plenty long and also love the new lift pedal design as well as the ability to stretch the length even more!

    Excellant and affordable lift.

    Posted by Terry Martin on 6th May 2016

    This Direct Lift works perfect and the price is a bonus also. This lift picks my 2016 Harley Roadglide Ultra up without any hesitation and this bike weighs 920 lbs. I would highly recommend this table lift.

    the BEST bang for your buck

    Posted by Slider's Southern Cycle LLC on 10th Apr 2016

    I've had other lifts before I found this one and I waisted a lot of money on those other lifts. I recommend this lift for everyone. From the weekend wrench turner to a shop.

    Excellent lift, excellent value

    Posted by Richard Zimmerman on 11th Jan 2016

    From the quick delivery, to the substantial, impressive packaging - this lift is heavy-duty and impressive as hell. It is solid, substantial and will serve me for a long time into the future. I've owned it for about a month now and use it for my Harley FLHTC and would recommend to anyone! A great lift at a great price, you will not be disappointed!

    Economical Motorcycle Lift

    Posted by Richard Santage on 9th Dec 2015

    I previously owned a piece of junk lift from a certain freight company that only worked when it wanted to. I researched affordable lifts, then spoke to Carol, a very knowledgeable rep. I visited the showroom, and saw the quality of the lift. I was sold! The only issue I have is the unloading of the crate as it is very heavy for one person to unload. The lift works flawlessly! I would highly recommend purchasing this lift for the shade-tree mechanic, or the professional.

    Nice looking and working addition to any motorcyclist's garage.

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd May 2013

    First off, The service that I've received from Derek Weaver co. through several purchases has been second to nothing. Friendly, patient and helpful service rep made the order quick and to the point. Also the speed of shipment was icing on the cake. Direct Lift- Very well built and with nice looks. The drop tail is a must and do yourself the favor of ordering the black jack with this lift or any lift for that matter! Makes raising the back wheel clear of the lift a breeze for removal. Also front wheels if bike is off the lift. If you've never used one, you don't know what your missing. I've ordered three of them for my garage and use the crap out of them. Worth every penny.
    I also got the side extensions for quads but I leave them on for bikes as they make handy surface for your tools or parts. My cylinder seal started leaking after lifting only four bikes (regulated at 95psi). Just stopped lifting all together one day. Called weaver and they without any hassle at all, shipped me a new one under warranty. Talked to several others who own this lift and they've had no similar issues. So overall I'm happy with this lift and two thumbs up to Weaver's service. Be back soon. Thanks!

    Droptail Equalizer

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Apr 2013

    Great system. Had been using a hydraulic 12 by 12 inch for my Harley Ultra Classic. With this lift it is a whole new world. Came 99% assembled. There are more places to install the front wheel clamp. Full forward (my first installation) left my Ultra forward of the rear wheel dropout and fully on the lift. After moving the wheel clamp back to the second install position this gave me the ability to drop the panel from under the rear wheel. Powder coating is very well done.
    Initially I did not buy the side panel extensions. Easy to ride the bike up onto the lift and into the wheel clamp. When it came time to back out, no place to put my feet made for some very dicey moments when the need to balance became apparent without perches for my feet without tucking them way under the centerline of the bike. Fortunately I am tall and was able to do this.
    The air system works well, the foot control is well made and substantial enough to stay where you put it with out floating around the floor. You need a small jack platform to enable the ability to get the wheels off the lift to drop the panel. It comes with two eyebolts to allow a place to put the tie down straps. There are many holes on the table to put these eyebolts.
    This table easily accommodates the extended frame style motorcycles. Manufactured by an ISO rated company means that there are stringent standards of quality control. It shows in all areas with a complete package of the required hardware, no shortages on anything.
    I fabricated the side extensions and mounting systems including the outsourcing of the powder coating. After all was said and done my fab cost was greater than the option cost as supplied by the manufacturer. I will say it again, if you can afford it buy the side extension option with the lift. You will be safety, time, and money ahead in the long run. This lift is way worth the money, in my opinion.

    No regrets! Impressive for the money!

    Posted by MoodyBlues on 16th Apr 2013

    Although this lift is advertised using chopper style bikes, I use it with road racing, sport-touring, and dual-sport bikes. First, as others have said, the packaged instructions could use some work, but it’s still pretty simple. One note, ensure your 90 degree airline adaptor coming out of the air cylinder is pointing at about a 4 o’clock position so the rubber line doesn’t have to bend so much when the lift is the down position. Some of the pictures online look like it could possibly be top heavy or unstable. Nope, it’s very stable. No threat of pulling it over while wrenching on a bike.
    The extra length is great for putting the rear of race bikes up on a rear stand. Also the bike can be put on backwards and the rear tire can be put in the tire vise. Then the front wheel or forks can be removed with a fork/ stem stand.
    Plenty of power. Pops up my fully loaded Kawasaki C-14 Concours in a few seconds. Multiple levels available with the lock help vary what position you want. Front tire vise also firmly holds a taller 21” wheel like on dual sport bikes. I went to Ft Worth and picked it up to save $200 on freight. Item was ready and quickly loaded. Great customer service.
    Over all, very well made for the money. I see no need to ever upgrade from this. Would buy this again.

    Perfect for all types of Motorcycles

    Posted by Tom on 6th Dec 2012

    We bought two of these for our Man Cave. Great lifts that work flawlessly and handle any type of bike. Consider buying the side extensions to make it easier to load big bikes and keep your balance.

    Drop Tail Lift

    Posted by motodad on 12th Nov 2012

    Best lift in the shop ! Will buy anotherone soon.

Derek Weaver Company is proud to offer our high quality products with free shipping or warehouse pickup. Here's how it works...

PRODUCTS MARKED FREE SHIPPING

All Products on our website are offered with "Free Shipping". This means the freight charges are included in the price. Most of our products weighing less than 800-lbs. are offered with “Absolute Free Shipping” which means there are no extra fees. In this case you will notice the phrase “FREE SHIPPING! Includes Free Residential and Free Lift Gate Service!”, in the description of the products page. Absolute Free Shipping also means there are no additional fees for Liftgate Service or Residential Delivery. The only additional fee that you may incur would be if the address were changed during shipment which would incur a reconsignment fee by the freight carrier that we would only pass on if it were not our mistake.

For equipment over 800-lbs (most 2 & 4-Post lifts) there are some limitations for Free Shipping depending on weight and delivery location. In this case you will notice the phrase “Free Shipping To Over 85% of the USA - See Where It's Free” in the description of the products page. Most of the USA will require no additional fee. This applies to over 85% of the continental USA (lower 48 states). Free shipping does not apply to Alaska or Hawaii. Some parts of the country are affected by higher freight rates due to the combination of weight and delivery location which will require a small additional charge to cover the higher rate charged by the freight carriers. Our shopping cart will not calculate the difference (added fee), so we will contact you if this is the case. Rather than advertise the higher rates across the board we choose to show the lowest possible cost to most of the country. Like “Absolute Free Shipping” there will be no extra charge for lift gate or residential delivery. The following areas may have additional freight: North Western US, North Eastern US, Long Island, Western Colorado, the Dakotas, some parts of Florida & California and any area deemed a remote location by the freight company. Prior to ordering give us a call at 817-560-9510 or email and we can provide accurate information regarding Free Shipping or any additional charges.

FREIGHT CONSIDERATIONS

Shipping and delivery time given during the freight quote process is an estimated time of delivery given by the carrier. Choosing Liftgate Delivery may extend delivery times due to limited liftgate equipment at the delivering terminal. Meeting the delivery schedule is subject to the day the freight is shipped and the carrier’s ability to meet their schedule. Derek Weaver Co., Inc. does not guarantee that a carrier can meet their projected delivery time but we will provide you with the proper tracking information by email so you can follow the tracking time and arrange for special delivery needs with the carrier as needed. Any additional fees incurred as a result of consignee being unable to meet scheduled delivery time or cause for redelivery or reconsignment to a different location will be at consignee’s expense.

RESIDENTIAL DELIVERY:

Choosing Residential may extend the estimated delivery time due limited liftgate trucks at the delivering terminal, additional communication and handling by the freight company. Please keep this in mind when choosing residential delivery.

UNLOADING THE FREIGHT TRUCK:

Make sure you can unload the freight. A forklift or lifting equipment is required for items over 800-lbs. The trucking company is only responsible for delivery to your loading dock if delivered to a business address or curbside if a residential lift gate delivery. Lift gate service is available for some equipment and can assist in unloading 2 and 4-post lifts however you will still need a forklift. Liftgate capacity is typically 1000-lbs and cannot unload a 2 or 4-post lift on its own.

PICKUP AT YOUR LOCAL FREIGHT TERMINAL:

If you are unable to unload a truck, we have the option of letting you pick the freight up at the closest terminal to your location. When picking up at a terminal, the freight company will load your truck or trailer for you which is included in the freight cost. Call our office (1-817-560-9510) to determine the location of the closest terminal. If you require terminal pickup please place a note in the comment box requesting terminal pickup and we will contact you with the terminal location. Covered trailers or trailers with ramps are not acceptable as they prevent the forklift from getting the load into the trailer. They will not drive onto a ramped trailer. Please remove the ramps prior to picking up if possible.

All shipments must be inspected immediately upon receipt

IF AN ITEM HAS FREIGHT DAMAGE OR SCRATCHES

1) ACCEPTING AN ITEM WITH FREIGHT DAMAGE OR SCRATCHES.

Choose this option if you have minor dings and scratches or a part that needs replaced to make the unit satisfactory. Make note of the damage before you sign the freight bill. You will be responsible for filing the freight damage claim with the carrier. Derek Weaver Co, Inc. will provide any replacement parts or touch up paint needed should you choose this option and the carrier should provide for reimbursement. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our customer service department @ 1-817-560-9510

2) REFUSE THE DAMAGED ITEM.

Choose this option if the carrier has severely damaged the freight beyond your judgment of a simple repair. Derek Weaver Co, Inc. will file all freight claims. Get a copy of the freight bill from the truck driver and email it with a brief explanation of the situation to us. A replacement will be shipped as soon as we verify possession of the freight with the carrier.

SCHEDULING A WAREHOUSE PICKUP

If you would like to pick-up the item at one or our warehouses, please call ahead to make sure the item is in stock and schedule your pick-up. Picking up at our warehouse will save you in freight fees but will require sales tax to be collected. If you do not see a pickup price on our website for the product you are interested in you may call our office for more information.

In Texas we load Monday – Friday by appointment only.

In North Carolina we load Monday – Friday by appointment only.

All Two Post and Four Post Lifts require trailer for pickup. Be prepared for pick-up by understanding the item’s weight and dimensions and using the proper truck and/or trailer for hauling. We cannot load open or enclosed trailers with ramp gates. Our warehouse will load the item onto your vehicle and/or trailer but is not responsible for properly securing the load on your vehicle and you will need to make sure you have the proper straps and equipment for hauling. All items for local pick-up are charged state sales tax at the appropriate local rate. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our customer service department @ 1-817-560-9510
