Clever.
Would be great to take 18V rechargeable batteries currently on the market for cordless tools.

can't imagine that would work in any pro shop. if you are gonna lift the car enough to slide under it with that thing, you might as well lift it all the way so you can stand up and walk around. Frankly, i see this more for the elderly and disabled market.

I think it is a great idea. As you get old getting up and down off creepers is tiring, this would help considerably.

Well with all us older types seemingly going to be here longer, this may have value. But I like the Segway too and not jumping at buying one. Neat, interesting, fun but cost vs return.....that's the issue.

more leverage?

When extracting porsche exhaust studs,being laid down on a creeper is much more effective than drilling standing up. l grew up working on a creeper,easier on the neck muscles,and you can brace your feet up to really pull hard on a breaker bar.

My guess is it probably costs as much or more than a decent lift?

Would have loved walking off the snap-on truck with one of these in 1976
