When it's time to get off the tired knees and straighten the aching back (but the job isn't finished), my mini adjustable mechanic bar seat is a welcome relief! Providing support for my derriere and work tools, I can maneuver around easily on the 5 wheels and set the seat height just where I need to get the work finished.
Actually, I've quickly figured out that starting my task using the stool for support, instead of kneeling all the time, helps prevent my back and knee discomfort from setting in...Built in Ergonomics! It is light enough to be very portable, but solid enough to support my medium frame. The range of hydraulic seat adjustment is excellent and the round tool tray keeps my smaller hand tools all together...Nice addition to my workshop efficiency (and Back & Knee Health)!
Wheel bearings on three wheels fell out of the wheels after 10 months of lite use. Sears does not honor Craftsman warranty for replacement of this product. Tried to find replacement parts on Sears Parts Direct website, model number not recognized during search. Time to move on to another product.
excellent price and works great for projects in the garage
I have two of these seats that are used very little. Both have lost balls out of swivels. These are greaseie and makes a mess on carpet. Can't find replacement parts! Will have to scrap I guess!
Got this as a gift 2 years ago. After 18-months the weld at the seat/hydraulic piston union failed. I have re-welded several times but can only get a couple of hours of use before it fails again. Might try HF next time - about 1/2 the price.
This work stool is great for working on my cars and my power equipment. I repair lawn mowers and lawn tractors and I use this stool quite a bit. It is comfortable, the wheels roll freely and the tray for keeping the tools handy is, well handy.
