RE: HELP! I HAVE A CHEAPO FLOOR JACK!!
I have gone through 2 now. I am on my 3rd. I saw the ones at Wall Mart
and avoided them for some reason. I had 2 sears one and athe 3 ton
lasted but I had problems with the bolt cutout in the handle where the
nut fits that sets it to raise or lower kept stripping so I upgrade to
3.5 ton. Speed Lift Capability. 90 lbs. Huge and Nice. Lasted a week
before problems started with seals. Full of fluid and wouldn't lift
more than aabout 1/8 or 1/4 inch per stroke and wont go all the way up.
No thanks to SEars great return policy and waranty I have Sears 6
ton Jack stands and some Money Back. Went ot Costco and got a 3-Ton
All Trade for $70. Weighs like 110 lbs. VERY hefty. Not a Speed Lift
but once the bucket touches lift point on A6 front tires are off ground
in like 3-4 pumps. Not bad. Fastest yes. Only had one Week. Will use
to drop engine soon so we'll see.
So, I feel your pain. Thank God for Warranties. I cant afford a
$300 jack if anyone asks. :-) THre are cheap ones that last (Friends
SHop had a NASCAR? Gimmick Jack that lasted 2 years in a SHOP before
getting stolen that they bought for $120 at Costco but they didn't have
any more) My Alltrade had same paint Job though so I'm thinking same
manufacturer but cheaper without name and Speed Lift thing.
