2011 Heritage Harley on the PRO 1200 Motorcycle Lift - Thanks to Bob for the photo submission!

Thanks to Bob in Essex Junction, VT for the photo he submitted of his 2011 Heritage Harley sitting on his new PRO 1200 Motorcycle Lift. Bob tells us he "tried the lift today-works great!", which was great to hear - we appreciate the nice feedback! Bob also inquired about a longer ramp and whether they help with heavier bikes. For those of you out there who are wondering whether you might need one, the longer ramp (we have the 40" ramps in stock right now) reduces effort to load and adds clearance at bottom of bike, making it easier to load a larger or heavier bike onto the lift with a longer ramp.

We appreciate our customers letting us know how their interactions are with us; we strive to make ourselves available as much a humanly possible, even if we are out of the shop! Positive customer experience is key! "So far everything is fine with them. I would like to thank the owner for taking a call regarding assembly while he was on vacation in Florida. Very nice."

Saylor Beall improves compressor performance by installing two stage hone
[caption id="attachment_4205" align="alignright" width="303"]2-stage-hone-saylor beall compressor New Saylor Beall Honing Machine[/caption] Saylor Beall has made a significant manufacturing improvement with the recent installation of a new two stage hone, and it has dramatically improved the performance of their air compressors. The hone provides for a rounder cylinder with more consistent micro-finish. It allows the piston ring to seal more closely against the cylinder, reducing the amount of oil that can pass downstream. The main advantage of two stage honing is the ability to perform a roughing operation, then come back and do the finish operation with much more accuracy. The machine uses CNC control to vary the honing speed, also switching to different grit stones needed for the finish operation. The machine also uses a brush final operation to knock off burrs or high spots that might have remained after the finish operation. While oil is a necessary evil, necessary to lubricate moving parts, disposing of it can be a challenge. Oil has always been an irritating side effect of air compressors. It often mixes with the compressed air, only to condensate later in the air system. It can cause valves to stick, and it can leak through gaskets. In today’s more environmentally conscious society, anything to reduce the impact of oil is considered a plus. This two-stage hone has been in production since March 2015, and Saylor Beall reports noticable improvements in their compressor pumps. Check out Saylor Beall Air Compressors here.
