I disagree ... I've got two -- count 'em, TWO -- Harbor Freight presses and
they both died in under a year. I suppose it's not a big deal to rebuild
the hydraulic jacks but the whole things are pretty cheaply made ... if you
plan to use them more than occasionally, try to find a good used industrial
type in the local classifieds; you'll appreciate the difference in the long run.
BTW, this isn't a slam against Harbor Freight -- some of their cheap stuff
holds up incredibly well -- just my opinion about the quality of their
hydraulics. Caveat Emptor!
