This may be because I've never really used a good one and it's never on a clean shop floor
I've been happy'ish with mine. Definitely makes it way more comfortable and easier to get under the car. The wheels are a bit too grippy I think , so it makes changing direction kinda hard. But if you make the wheels less grippy, it usually means they are harder and less compliant and get stuck on cables and small rocks and such even easier. Sigh... *engineering challenges*

Yeah. It was just a little too slow and thoughtful for most people.

That doesn't sound like a librarian car.

Or maybe it's to make up for being a librarian?

I really hope the new album grows on me, but unlike the others, it is kinda bland.
