Nice Raxx w/ Pitbulls - ur opinions

I have a pitbull rear, front forklift, and forklift converter. For the front, I like to use the forklift w/o the converter unless I'm doing anything with the forks. Should I buy 3 nice raxx to hang them all separately? Will it work on the converter alone? Are these even worth the $120+ I'll need to spend to get all my stands off the floor? Thanks!

For the rear and the fork-lilft yes..... they rock.


Not sure what they do for the FL converter.

I use them and love them for the pit bull rear and front fork lift.

Completely disagree.

They are awesome for folks like me that are at the track a lot and carry their stands all over the place every weekend. Money well spent.

First time you have one of the f&*ing things get loose in the
trailer and bend a rotor, dent a tank or wreck a fairing you will
realize it would have been way cheaper to properly fasten them.


It's great..... show up at the track, track day paid for ready to ride.
and find a bent rotor..... weekend over. $500 in new rotors.
Have a nice day.


I am not sponsored by nor paid to say this by anyone.... it's just experience.

My trailer has 10 NiceRaxx in it. It was a GREAT purchase, and after tons of use and abuse every weekend, they still look like new, and they do a great and SECURE job of handling all my PitBulls.

Great purchase. Heck, there is a photo of my trailer on their home page!
