You can't go wrong with either. I have the first one. The second offers some back support but don't feel that would ever be needed as I use it mainly for cleaning wheels and am slightly bent over anyway.

Reviews harborfreight point to wheel problems.

oh the other thing is the wider base on the first one without lumbar support means less tipping when you catch an edge rolling around the driveway or garage.

I have it and had wheel problems. Was easily solved by just cranking down the casters. Hasn't given me an issue since. I highly recommend for the money. Height adjustment is key to save back.

Dang I wish I had one of these when I detailed my car. My thighs are so sore at the moment. :/

the HF ones SUCK. Ive purchased 3 in the last year and a half...ONE of the wheels keeps giving out no matter how much I tighten it. It will always come loose, even with loctite! As soon as I get some time (slammed with work right now), Ill end up buying a new one!
