Here are the pics of the new S185. I was going to get a couple of it in action but, the keys were in the work trailer and the lock was iced shut. So I have to take a torch with tomorrow to get that POS open.
Is supposed to up the capacity to 2000lbs, I havn't had the rearend anywhere close to coming off the ground yet. SO far the heaviest that I have tried to lift with is was about 2385lbs (9sq of shingles @ 265/sq). It lifted all the way to the max height without a problem. The dealership had a used kit that I got for $100, the list price for new was around the $320 mark if I remeber right.
