The fact it has hydraulics and better wheels makes it very tempting. Anyone want to buy my HF lift, cheap?

We would possibly be interested in it. We actually have three of the original WICO pinball lifts, but in some circumstances we think the Harbor Freight style lift would actually work better and we have been meaning to grab one for the barn.

Let me know via PM. We would also considering trading one of our Wico lifts out for your Harbor Freight if that interests you.

Does anyone here have this pin dolly from Twisted Quarter?

If you do, can you tell me if it is shorter than the old Wico pin dollies?

We have found that the old Wico dollies won't fit under the front of any of our newer games. It slides right under Bally Williams machines, but it will not fit under Stern or Jersey Jack games unless we lift the front of the game over the dolly (which is a huge pain in the dick).

I have one like that.  I had no problem using it with Stern pins.

I wonder if I could run over to Twisted Quarter and see it in action?

I'd like to get an actual measurement of it's height if someone has access to one.

The website indicates two different heights - 17" and 19.5"

Thanks for the reminder, I need to carry some of mine to the welders and have them wack an inch off each the bottoms, that will fix that problem.

This is defiantly the cheapest price I've seen for this life. I need to call and see if it's flat packed or already assembled. If it's relatively compact and anyone is interested, I can grab a couple and haul them over to Orlando to save on shipping.

Thanks, Steve. That just barely clears as I am measure 19 3/4 from ground to bottom of front cabinet lip.

Looks like that is the one to have for the newer Sterns!

Is it possible to just put shorter casters on a Wico cart to solve the problem?

Matches the measurements on my ST as well.

Now I'm thinking I need to get one. Any one else want in?

No, it needs the lower part chopped at least an inch. DIY- cut the 4 angle supports with a sawzall, remove the inch and weld it back together. Center hydraulic may need adjustments depending on what year/type used.

Now, back to the topic of how do you move your games? This is the best way to do it!!  Bring a buddy along to move the games. He wanted to use the new lightweight Cosco dolly with solid rubber wheels.
