[Costco] Hyperion 3-ton 12 V Portable Hydraulic Floor Jack $99

Costco Hyperion 3-ton 12 V Portable Hydraulic Floor Jack on $30 off sale for $99 from $129. Pretty good price for electric 3 ton jack.

There is also a set with the similar jack, impact wrench and some accessories for $179, it’s $40 off. The jack version is with a compressor and a light.

Video for this combo




I opted for $99 version as the kit is a bit large for my car to haul around it for emergencies.

Is this jack tall enough for SUVs like the CRV? My current jack doesn't raise the SUV high enough for even tire changen

Wow, this seems amazing... Is there any downside compare to conventional car jacks?

Holy moly.

So there is no need to put on Jack stands?

This reminds me of those combo jack stands and jack in one's but those don't work on sedans as the ground clearance is too low.

Has anyone purchased this in the past? Hows the quality of the impact wrench?

Do you charge this or must it be connected to external power source when using?

For a tire change, you probably don't need jack stands. Any maintenance where you're getting under the vehicle, never take the chance.

Ugh, reviews are all over the place. (US Costco)

Looks like the main issue is the hydraulic fluid may leak depending on how lucky/unlucky you are. I'm not so sure this is the best of ideas given that problem as you could have the car drop on you....

Max height is 17.5", that's not high enough for CRV 5th gen

That, and in the long term, the chance of this failing is probably higher than a mechanical hydraulic jack. Traditional jacks will probably last longer.

As with everything you are buying these days... gauge your chances. Trolley jacks, manual screw jacks etc are not immune from defects.
Buying from Costco should protect you for some time at least.

And may be not necessary for changing tires, I use stands every time I can.

I have seen manual jacks falling, just make a trip to local junk yard and look for a manual jack. Many of them are bent.
In my personal experience my trolley jack failed, good I had stand right behind it. If you dont trust this one, dont buy it.

Assuming this doesn't blow fuses like some 12V air compressors/tire inflators do, looks like a decent product. 13A max current. I'd check what size fuse your 12VDC port can handle. I think 15A is standard.

Keep in mind guys this is designed for roadside emergency use. Keep it in the trunk and use it instead of the scissor jack vehicles come with. The notches on the lifting point look to be fine for pinch weld jack points. The only reason I would use this at home for regular, non emergency use is if I didn't have a proper floor jack.
