I would have to be almost crippled to consider that. Then it might become very useful.

IF I was 20 years younger and was still gonna be in this trade, hell yes!
sure would have saved a lot of wear and tear on the body...

Didn't see a price - probably about the same a raising a human through college.

I can see myself using one but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to move without it. Not there yet.

nope. Might have saved my back a bit though. Dealing with arthuritous has been little fun in recent yrs

Could be useful for proper situation , smoother floor, less cluttered floor than I was often on.

I prefer car hoist when possible, not human hoist.


Many folks have sent this video to me.

I barely fit under my vehicles without a creeper . The creeper would bring me closer to the work = even stronger reading glasses . I would bet that creeper would cost more than anything I drive . BUT........ does it come in metalflake?

A quick Google shows this thing costing around $1,000. I can think of a whole bunch of things I'd rather spend $1,000 on.

i agree that not fitting under the cars...

but that is so much better than a layer of cardboard or my current creeper.. a moving blanket..

i would sure hate to have it try to go up and smash my face into the bottom of the car..

now.. if only the wheels were powered also.. so you could make parts runs on it.

it would probably refuse to lift my weight..

I never even thought about it trying to sit you up when you are under the car! what if you dropped a wrench on the controls and it started to move ? My shop floor is too cracked up to use a creeper anyways . I think the hardest thing about working on cars for me the last few years has been the climbing in or out from under the car .

It would be pretty good but for a $1000 bucks I could spend that money on better things for my workshop. I have to settle for a softer sort of cardboard.

I once fell asleep under a car I was working on in a shop with floor heat. Smashed my head when I woke up . Bubble wrap might be the answer for comfort . The worst thing is the sore neck I get after a while of working under the car .
