They have always taken care of my faulty stuff without a problem, I guess there are some who don't care in your stores.

I have no idea what the capacity is, any guesses?I have used them many times under the Winnie, but I always stack wood blocks under the axle. "Belt and Suspenders"HURF

Being all cast iron they are good stands but not much footprint. They were great for holding things up that were steady but they do not have any lateral stability. We used them when rigging machinery that had multiple sections that had to be put together since they were good at minor height adjustments. I would not use them as a primary stand but as you say you also use blocks.
