We were on hand when Eightball unboxed and installed the SuperDeck III, and while it looked pretty intimidating sitting there as a complete unit, it only took about an hour for the initial install. Once the SuperDeck III was operational, it was put to the test by loading the chopper. In a matter of seconds the deck was out of the bed and flat on the ground. The bike was then rolled onto the deck secured with a couple of tie-downs and then lifted into the bed; total time was less than three minutes. The addition of the extension made the system just long enough to handle the super-sized chopper.
We were pretty impressed with the system; it was really easy to use and definitely over-built-which helps with peace of mind when loading your baby. Loading/unloading a motorcycle of any weight or size is a one-man job that won't have you breaking your back or breaking a sweat. We could see how it could come in handy for many motorcycle owners. Some people just can't physically make the long ride to Sturgis on a motorcycle anymore, but they don't want to miss out on the spectacular riding in the Black Hills, this is a good solution for those who prefer or need to haul their bike(s). It's a great option for people who might have a bad back or just can't physically load a motorcycle into a truck bed. It also makes sense for those who own a motorcycle recovery business and are always having to push a broke down or wrecked bike up onto a trailer or up a ramp into the bed of a truck.
In less than 30 seconds, the loading process is complete and you are ready to drive away.
There were some downsides with the system, the biggest of which was the price. Unless you know you are going to get a ton of use out of the SuperDeck III, it's pretty hard to justify the $4,300 price tag. The other thing is it's pretty big, so while it is easy to install and reinstall (about 15 minutes once you've done the initial installation) you'll need a couple buddies to remove the lift arm from the truck and you'll need a place large enough to store the deck and lift arm. One thing we'd like to see is a wheel chock/dock, which would add just a bit more stability when loading and transporting a motorcycle.
As we mentioned before, the upside is the ease of use, quality construction, and even when you don't have a bike loaded, you can still use the bed of your truck to haul lumber, tires, or your wife's excess baggage.
The lift arm and deck are secured together by this round steel bar and two quick disconnect pins. If you need to remove the assembly from your truck bed, you simply lower the deck to the ground and remove the two pins. You then unbolt the lift arm and disconnect the power leads and unload the lift arm.
