Now let’s compare some of the main features and benefits of the different lifts. If ease of use is important to you, the QML01A or QML1750A might be more appropriate options. They both feature an air operated dual foot pedal for safe and easy raising and lowering of the lift. The QML02, on the other hand, features an electric/hydraulic power unit mounted on a tow dolly. This allows the convenience of moving the lift to various locations with ease.


Another difference is the drop down panels. The QML01A features solid approach ramps with rear drop feature that provides quick access to the wheels. The QML1750A and QML02, however, offer approach ramps with both front and rear drop feature.


The last noticeable difference between the motorcycle lifts is lift capacity. The QML01A has the smallest lift capacity at 1,000 lbs., whereas the QML02E doubles that amount, at 2,000 lbs. For an in-between option, the QML1750A offers a lift capacity of 1,750 lbs.
