Harbor Freight has come out with new Pittsburgh low-profile creepers in a range of colors.
It looks like these low-profile Pittsburgh creepers were available in gray, and now they are also available in black, blue, and green.
Harbor Freight sent out a newsletter about the new Pittsburgh creepers, and I find the new product expansion to be interesting for two reasons.
First, new colors are great! Harbor Freight’s US General tool boxes, carts, and accessories are available in a range of colors. Why not color options for their creepers as well? Seems like a good idea.
Second, Harbor Freight’s marketing has deviated a little from their usual “everything must go,” “blow out,” and “unbelievable prices” strategies. Sure, there’s still a “compare to” mention in the newsletter and on the product pages, but that’s not the main focus.
Features & Specs
- 40″ length
- 18-1/4″ width
- 300 lbs load capacity
- One-piece PVC frame
- padded headrest
- 6 swivel casters
- Built-in tool storage
Harbor Freight describes these creepers as being oversized and low-profile, and able to clear the undercarriage of most vehicles.
The blue, green, black, and gray creepers are only available in-stores. Harbor Freight has another gray creeper that’s identical in appearance and available online, but it’s unclear if there are differentiations or reasons for the separate listings.
This looks a lot like the Pro Lift mechanics creeper, although the Pro Lift has a higher load capacity (350 lbs) and is made from HDPE rather than PVC.
There’s also a less expensive Pro Lift model without built-in tool storage trays – $34 via Amazon.
