Overpaid flight instr is an oxymoron. :wink:IR Harry said:Strider pretty much hit it on the head. The lift is more versatile, little more stable, takes up more room, and more expensive. The ATV jack does what it is supposed to, a lot cheaper, and takes up a lot less room.
If boils down to what you want and how much. If you are just going to use it occasionally to change oil, take the tires off, clean the wheels, etc, the jack will works just fine. But it you want to get it up in the air so you can sit on a chair and polish the mufflers, have a lawn mower that need tinkered on, and are an overpaid flight instructor ( :lol: ), then the table lift is the answer.
