Woodcraft Rear Pad Stand
Nice and solid stand, well made and easy to use. No problems lifting bike by myself. Bike is stable when lifted without front wheel chock.
Does not have extended handle like the Pit Bull stand, so leverage when lifting bike takes a bit more force. Not an issue on a featherweight bike like the FZ-07 (400lbs wet), but be aware for bigger bikes.

Does what it says it will do.
I've been needing a rear paddock stand for a long time. It makes cleaning the chain, a mandatory maintenance chore much easier. It has other benefits also.
This stand works perfectly. I did drop my bike off it once though. It dinged the heat shield on the exhaust. That was my fault most likely.
Otherwise, it works well. Just remember to use your grab handle when raising or lowering the bike off the stand.

Works great for a 2014 KLR 650
Was looking for a stand for maintenance without the need of spools. This one fits the bill perfectly. Very easy to lift the 432# bike.

Works for me
It's the price I wanted to pay for a product I wanted. I've got a '99 R6 and it works great on the rear swing arm. Easy enough for one person to stand the bike up.

The Woodcraft rear pad stand is very well made. Straight forward efficient design and good quality materials. The welds are very good and the finish is good as well. The wheels are heavy duty and fit the task. The adjustment for the lift points use a simple but effective spring clap arrangement to set the width to catch the swing arms. The handle is long enough to give you enough leverage to easily lift a bike on your own. I am very pleased with the stand and now don't understand how I got a long without out one so very long.

Solid Stand, Great Price
This is the first stand I bought for my bike (600R) and it fits perfectly. The construction is nice and solid and the angled handle already saved me from a pinched hand. The size of the wheels does exactly as intended and allows you to set the rear wheel back down easily and gently. This is a great quality stand for a great price and I highly recommend it to anybody that is lifting by swing-arm.

Great product for a great price
I was torn between this stand and the pitbull (which has a reputation as the best stand out there). After reading many reviews I decided to go with the Woodcraft stand and am not disappointed. The quality of material is top notch and fits my bike (600rr) perfectly with minimal adjustment. I'd highly recommend this rear stand if you're in the market for one!

As sturdy as pad stands get
Best pad stand I've used. Nice thick tubing keeps the stand stable with heavy bikes and the oversize wheels make it easy to pick the bike up in a fluid motion instead of just "snapping" down. The adjustable pad area is exceptionally robust and I have no worries leaving my 520lb+ bike supported for days on end. Would definitely recommend, and look forward to purchasing Woodcraft's front stand in the future.
