I've never had problems with my triple tree t rex stand. It does push down a little bit on the front wheel fender when setting it up, but no plastics are anywhere near the stand once its up.

The fork lift does suck that's why I got the triple tree add on. THe rear stand also blocks the axle, but I just had a shop grind them down and it's all good. Like others have said, If you want budget stands, go with T rex, and if you want the best, get pit bull.

Also wouldn't mind having a bursig stand but those are real pricey.

Re: Winter Overhauls... need stands

Bursig stand is nice for sure . Would be great for complete teardowns . Roll it into the corner when done working .
I am looking for an engine stand for doing a rebuild . Like Graves uses . It holds motor at rear , and motor can be taken all the way apart and put back together while suspended on stand .

Never had any problem with the Trex front either. I also bought the triple tree stand. It comes with atatchments to use as a fork lift but I'm not sure why you would want to.
