While it is not as quality as stands that are 2~3x the price ( that is always the case) it is plenty good enough for occasional home use. I would have to use it in a pit/race day setting to see how it would hold up... but for home use a few times a year, it certainly seems to fit the job just fine. It is easy to get the 503# m/c on and off. I used blue loc-tite on the bolts that hold the sliding lift fingers. I do not need to change the width. So that should be good. I can see where the higher priced units would work better and would be made better, but since I have not used one of those, that is all I can say.
