the clamps on these can let the post slide after awhile so make sure the clamp is really tight.what I did was drill a hole right above it and insert a tool to lock it in place.

Can you rotisserie ebike on the stand?
Do you mean rotate? Yes you can:

I have the Park 10.2 stand. I also added a fastener right above the main slider clamp so it will not slide on its own due to the weight of my Ultra duo. I find it hard to lock the rotation feature tight enough to really lock the bike in any position. If the CG is way forward or aft, locking the bike in any position so it actually won’t slowly rotate back to its own neutral position is not easy. I’m afraid I may break something tightening the crap out of the rotator. I remove all batteries before I attach to the stand and usually clamp at the seat post. The main crossover tube is odd shaped so not easy to grab the crossover tube very tight so I just stick with the seat post which has the CG forward and front wheel down usually.

Anyone close to me SE MN can have mine for half retail with accessory tray.
I wish I'd never sold my hydraulic MC lift. OR when still actively building had purchased a proper powered lift.
Thousands in eBikes and I got dumb buying a lift

To clumsy for a heavy eBike, for me at least!

I just finished installing my homemade bike stand that attaches to my automotive hoist.
I used a Park Tool bench stand I recently purchased.

Here's the work stand attached to the hoist arms. Under each end of the plank is 3 inches of metal tubing that fits in the holes at the end of the hoist arms.

I can attach my ebike to the work stand clamp without having to lift it up into place

Then, using the hoist I can lift the bike up to any height I want.

Is my jealousy showing?! :p

Sam,
Once I bought Park Tool PRS-25, I never felt I needed anything else.
PCS-10.3 holds up to 36 kg. PRS-25 is more lightweight and it holds up to 45 kg. I never looked at the price.
I just recently found the PRS-25 on sale from a Canadian shop, so I ordered one. Looks promising, so I guess we'll see when it arrive.

Seems to be one of the few that are truly rated for the weight of the larger e-bikes.

Interesting setup!

Why not attach the Park bench stand to the bucket of your Kioti Tractor? Then the stand will be portable. :)

Better yet, mount it on the backhoe bucket, and you'll have 360 degree power tilt too! Work on it in any conceivable position. lol

So my Park Tool PRS-25 arrived and I have had time to use it a little bit. Definitely big ebike rated!

I am impressed how light it is, while still easily accommodating the weight of my fat-tired monster. Only a mild wiggle when working even with the vertical post extended to a comfortable drivetrain working height, and no worries about stability or strength. Pics without battery, but I'm confident it would be fine with the battery for simple jobs, just maybe trickier to get a nice balance point for rotating. Only point of consideration is that the minimum height does require a lift of about 18" to the clamp for my frame style, so that might be a consideration for some.
