I am looking for a work bench/service station to work on my RS250.
The only ones I can find are the ones with hydrolic lift.
I do not own a compressor powerful enough for the lift, neither can I afford the $1200 hydrolic lift tables I have found so far.

Are there any work benches with manual lift and/or ramp option?

I have the Ranger RML-750HD lift, and it's amazing. Probably (definitely) overkill for what i use it for.

Has a drop out rear, with poles to suspend the rear of the bike from, which i never use since it's just wide enough to throw the pitbull on and just use that. Had 12" extensions that can go on both sides, one side acts as a parts tray, the other for ATVs and something with a little more width. Combination hydraulic and pneumatic, i just use the hydraulic foot pump. Thing can hold like 1600 pounds, and drops down to 7" off the ground

If you keep an eye out in motorcycle magazines, you can often find a cupon for the harbor freight deal for $280. I use this lift with a baxley sport chock for my own stuff. Can't beat the setup!

Ran around $700-$1000. My friend does all the wrenching on my bike, and doesn't charge, so i buy him a gift once a year, and this was one of them since before we were uses rear and front stands. And a couple people use his garage, so wanted one that could lift everything from a scooter to a trike.

$40 from Harbor Freight. Of course you need a good mounting point.

AND foriegn cars (mostly) not to mention 98% of items including our complete house furniture, everythiing my kids play with, everything they wear (gymboree) ALL was assembled in Asia mostly China.
Its extremely hard and very expensive to buy US made products for the most part.
But I get what you are saying.
Its just the world we live in.
