A mate has one he uses on his Yamaha something. Works great on the smooth surface of his garage but would be no good on pavers or bricks as a surface,
It is just a generic brand he purchased no need to spend huge sums on this sort of product it is just some metal and some castors. As long as it is solidly constructed and can support the weight nothing much else matters. A brand name certainly doesnt.

If it's just for turning the bike around I made a turntable. Purchased a large (very Large) Lazy Susan bearing from a well know auction site. Fixed a plate to the top.

Position the bike over the plate and place on main stand. A little downward pressure on the back and the front wheel comes off the ground and round she goes in the length of the bike. Works on rough floor a treat.

I've had one of these from this guy for 5 years now, built like a ship's anchor but always very easy and smooth moving my bike around.
Sideways, backwards, spin it around, all with ease.

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.
