Did a search and read the 10 threads that came up, but didn't see this issue directly discussed. The steel H.F. ATV/Motorcycle jack is priced around $89. The aluminum motorcycle jack has been on sale for $119 (regular $199). A riding buddy has a high priced (and excellent) jack and I do any major maintenance using his jack (and his experience). I want a jack at my place for minor work and wheel cleaning, so the aluminum jack's smaller footprint, mobility and lighter weight appeals to me. Is there a compelling reason for buying the steel jack instead (other than price)?
