I see there are two basic designs.

Scissor type where the table rises vertically

or ones where the table moves backwards as it goes up.

Anybody got any idea if one type is inherently more stable than the other or is it simply down to the size of the base on the garage floor?

I did some research before I purchased one some years ago. As I understand it, the parallel lift type are inherently more stable - it stands to reason really.
I'm not sure of the advantage of the scissor lift..... Lift height maybe or the fact that the bike lifts vertically instead of upwards & backwards.
