I grabbed this Jack a couple of months ago when it was on sale for a similar price. Has been great for my two cars.

Just as a side note - You will need to purchase some hydraulic oil and fill it before use.

    the $100 1600kg one might be better unless you have a truck?

      Or, like OP, you're using it to lift two cars.

      Lifts higher and faster, easier to get underneath middle of car to lift one end rather than one corner to put on jack stands. Yes it's much larger and so you just roll it around but it really is better than the little jacks apart from the size.

      I don't have this specific one, but have a similar gumtree spec one.

    Gotta fill with oil ?

    It should be prefilled ready to go

    •  

      Bloody annoying given the smallest size is usually 500ml, and you only use 50ml.

    •  

      I got mine home and when I put the arm on there was a big sticker that said that you need to fill it before you use it as it Is empty. Had to make another trip to the hardware store to pick some hydraulic oil up which was annoying.

    Pretty sure it's filled when I bought mine. I got mine for around $180.

    Similar to the above poster, I initially thought this was overkill but I really enjoy using this. It's built strong unlike their smaller jacks which are so flimsy.

    This lifts the car up very high, quickly, but also low profile so doesn't get caught under low-lying front bumpers. I can raise the front of the car in seconds and have both jack stands underneath.

    Yes, it's not as light as some other brands, but once it's set up I just wheel it into the corner of the garage.

    Take two people when you buy it, it's too heavy to lift into the car with one person.

          Tries too hard in general

  •  

    Were these not on 1/2 price regularly?

  •  

    Says 'low profile', but this looks about as tall as Costco Arcan alloy jack, and somewhat shorter. I have the Costco jack, but my car is too low, and the jack isn't long enough to reach the centre jacking point without driving the car on ramps first.

    •  

      Your car must be illegal low

      •  

        Actually, it's factory suspension, so perfectly legal, but still very low. Also has long overhangs, and the jacking point really far back, so when you slide the jack in, the tall part of it hits the front bumper, and you can't slide it in far enough.

          That's the problem when you've got a big one

          Even low profile jacks aren't super low

            That's the problem when you've got a big one

            That's what she said.

    •  

      Not sure if it helps but mine fits easily under my wife's cj lancer aspire (that's the lowest car I have jacked with it)

    •  

      I've got the Arcan jack and it's fine if you jack it up at the pinch welds which most manufacturer will tell you to jack it up from. I even use a pinch weld jacking pad and I still have plenty of clearance on my lowered car.

  •  

    anyone know if this is high enough for a 4WD with a 2" Lift kit

    •  

      Height Raised: 505mm

    •  

      It should take the weight. I've seen people use a block of wood on top of the jack to get a bit extra height.

    I bought this jack

    Have not used it yet, meaning to get it out of the unopened box and do a tire rotation.

      That deal was from 2018… maybe just sell the jack and pay someone to rotate your tires with the proceeds.

  •  

    Good deal ! thanks

  •  

    Fook, paid $285 for mine a while back…

  •  

    Apparently you need to do regular maintenance on it too, every 20 lifts and lowers or every 3 months or so…

    •  

      Do you mean changing the oil? I would be surprised if you were supposed to change it that often. Where have you read that?

      •  

        NO - oil is untouched or at least I dont think there's a specified date to drain out the oil and replace with new oil, it's lubricating all the joints and pivots…with something, which they dont specify in the manual or at where just in case they're hidden from view…..you still have the manual dont you? Or have you chucked yours out along with the huge ass box as soon as you got the jack? Hahahaha….. According to one guy at SCA, you can use silicone WD 40 specialist on the joints and pivots and anything that moves….

      You could prob count on 1 hand how many home users have ever lubricated a trolley jack

      •  

        well they're trolley jacks must now be extremely squeaky and loud or harder to use in some way….

        •  

          How many times a year do you think the average home user uses thir jack ?

          •  

            @J5: at least a once a month….?
