    Sled lift beware

    Just a heads up. I bought a Princess Auto snowmobile lift . A very good lift for what i needed, BUT IT WILL OVER EXTEND WHEN LIFTING. the screw has no stop causing the sled to drop forward when it unscrews hitting the floor . I was lucky there was room for the sled not to pin me under it or against the wall. Just a heads up

    Put mine together last weekend and jack seems to stop before fully extended. Maybe you got a faulty one. Good to give people the heads up!

    i have 2 of them and they have a stop but you can go past it if you use a impact drill found out when i was putting one together. just put a thread locking nut on the end, i have never raised my sleds that high to go past the end

    I can't believe something from Princess Auto is faulty.

    Re: Sled lift beware

    I had this happen to me a couple days ago, when your cranking it up, stop cranking when it gets a little more resistance then the normal weight of the sled. The only way to put it back together is screw the greased up shaft back down, and then push it back up through, then bolt on the end hex nut again. guy can put a limiter strap on it so it can't extend farther then the shaft can go.
