I have both the rear and the front Pitbull stands. The front one is the Fork-lift model. It picks up at the bottom of the forks or you can get the convertor for it so that it can pick up at the bottom of the steering stem. I use it in the steering stem mode always just because it is fast and easy to do. Once it is up in the air it is rock solid. I have a brand new Fork-lift stand in my garage too if anyone is interested.
