The Garage Gator is fairly easy to install and the unit operates smoothly and reliably. The problem is when you raise the hook bar it is always crooked. I tried different ways to reposition the cable as it wound back onto the drum. Nothing solved the problem.
My carpenter was working on my house that day. I asked him to look at it as I knew He had also been a mechanic for many years. He said the drum should have been designed differently so the cable would wind on evenly and not overlap as you raise the hook bar. A traveling cog or taper on the drum may correct the defect. Otherwise a good unit (too bad).

Size Name: 220-Pound Verified Purchase
I ordered the unit just before Christmas and thought it wouldn't arrive until the stated 10-15 day period, but I recieved it 3 days later, in time for me to install it during my holiday time off. I have a garage with a high ceiling, about 12ft, so the gator was a good choice for me to get my bikes off of the valuable and limited square footage of my garage floor.

I am an engineer and in construction, so I work with a lot of hoist and rigging equipment. As such, I was impressed with the construction and safety features of the unit. I was particulary impressed with the "anti-two-block" device that prevents an operator from wenching in the load hook too much into the wench drum. On any wench, this is a very important safety feature, and I wouldn't buy any kind of powered wench without it.

I followed the installation instructions and the installation was simple and staight forward. They furnished a 3/4" drill bit that I could use to make a hole in the sheetrock on my ceiling where I thought the ceiling joist was located. I thought this was a great idea, as this hole allowed me to confrim that I was indeed installing my mounting bolt into the center of the joist. This gave me complete confidence that the installation was sound and strong.

I'll be walking under the suspended load, and my wife's $40,000 car will be parked under it sometimes, so I had to be very confident that the load of the bikes and equipment would be safely suspended. Although not called for in the instructions, to be safe, after the installation, I hung wieghts from the two cables totaling about 250lbs and did a test lift. I believe the unit is rated at about 220lbs, so I wanted to use a test wieght of slightly more.

Size Name: 220-Pound
I purchased the GGR220 from another retailer (which turned out to be a mistake). Apparently, they sent me an incorrectly re-packed / open box item which had the wrong or refurbished motor in it. Long story short...I called the manufacturer and with no fuss they shipped a brand new replacement motor for free which arrived in about 2 weeks. Excellent service from the manufacturer, V-Bro.

After some careful planning, I installed the unit in the parallel joist configuration with no problems, though I am pretty handy around the house. I am not giving the product a full 5 stars because of 2 areas I see for improvement:

1) As others have mentioned, when the cables wind up on the spool to lift the bar, they may not wind on the spool evenly which usually causes one side of the bar to rise slightly higher than the other one. Ultimately, this may cause a "skip" or "bump" and creaking sounds as the cable winds. If the manufacturer could engineer a way for the cable to wind evenly, I would find zero faults with the operation of the product at all.

2) The instruction manual needs work. I took the advice of other reviewers and carefully laid out / planned out the install on the floor first, *** and I'm glad I did! *** A couple key points to note: First, realize that the bar extends 18 inches out from each end where the cables attach. You'll need to know that measurement in order to properly position the motor mount / rail. The manual doesn't point out this measurement). Second: Step 1 of the manual shows 4 configurations for installing the motor plate, which is *critical* to get right to ultimately get the bar where you want it. The problem is the manual's illustrations are backwards!

Size Name: 220-Pound
At first, I loved this product. Lifting 6 bikes out of the way opens up much needed space in the garage. But it was too good to be true. The problem is that as the motor turns to raise the bar the cable winds against a sidewall of a cylinder, wrapping itself in a single-width column perhaps 5 or 6 times until the cable slides off the built up cable wrap and over toward the middle of the spool. The net effect of this is that the bar will suddenly drop anywhere from 6 to 12 inches and land hard as the cable free-falls until it catches on the spool again. A drop like this has caused bikes to fall off multiple times, even with the safety hook securely fastened. One bike has been damaged but thankfully no one has been hurt. Yet. At least the device has a key that I can remove since this thing is way too dangerous for kids of any age to operate.

This is a fundamental design flaw. There needs to be a moving cable guide that goes back and forth as the cable winds such that it gets evenly laid across the spool area. What a shame - I so wanted this to work. Stay away from this unless and until they redesign it with a means to correctly guide the cable as it spools up.

Update July 2014: I've discovered that if I grab the bar & move it back and forth as it lifts I can manipulate the cable to wind evenly across the spool. This means no more sudden drops :) I still wouldn't dream of letting a kid perform a lift, but perhaps they could do a descent since there's no problem unwinding the cable. The device screeches horrifically when lifting but perhaps that's a feature - automatically informs your neighbors you're putting your bikes away! In any case, the left has gone from death trap to usable so I'm bumping up to 3 stars. Still needs a cable-wind guide tho.
