46lbs for all steel construction.


The Arcane 3-ton Aluminum jack I believe is more heavy than this.

Ive been eyeing the “Torin 3-ton Professional-grade Low-profile Rapid-lift Floor Jack” from Costco for $149.

Tempted with this deal, can anyone vouch or comment on this floor jack?

Edit: Max height on the Torin is higher vs this one. I guess I’ll pass on this. Good deal though.

I personally wouldn’t go with Torin - recently their hydraulic jacks have gone downhill. Also wouldn’t risk a no name jack to jack up my car. Sure there’s a warranty but that doesn’t cover your car falling.

Usually you just jack your car then secure it with candle (jackstand, sorry my english isn't that good). If it fail while your jacking it it should drop on his wheel so no harm, until your do your work ONLY on the jack, which is DANGEROUS

Candle? Use jack stands. Also wheel chocks. I’m discussing the quality of the jack and not doing a DIY tutorial.

the one you have posted starts about 1/2" lower (if you have a low car, and it has a longer 2-piece handle) and goes up to 18"+
the one in this thread goes higher 20"+ with the extension, and saves over $50 after tax than the other one, and free shipping so you don't have to go to the store ;-)

46lbs vs 59lbs. Definitely lighter. Is this supposed to be enough? I will only use jack for changing tires 2x year and I have a sedan.

From decades of experience; People put their lives on the line all the time using hydraulic jacks of sorts with no safety supports in case the jack/s fail and they occasionally do fail. The reason I'm weighing in on this subject is first of all I experienced first hand an incident in high school auto class where my 1972 Datsun station-wagon had a jack failure caused by bleeding down slowly--I was under vehicle and didn't realize until it was too late where i got pinned and squeezing occurred--I managed to yell out and students in class ran out to lift car off me--I took an ear full and deserved it-- instead of taking a few seconds to put safety stands under vehicle, I took a chance---lesson learned- never again. A more recent incident; our vol fire service received a emergency call for someone trapped under vehicle-- the wife came out of her house to call her husband in for lunch and noticed him pinned under vehicle; it was already too late--typically you succumb to suffocation. He failed to take a few seconds to place jack stands, that were sitting close to vehicle, under it for some unknown reason.

Again from experience working under vehicles for decades- Try to work on level area to start; wheel chock as many wheels as possible and note that once you lift a vehicle where the wheels are part of transmission parking, the vehicle is free to move (even if just 1 wheel is off ground); jack vehicle on solid ground--if soft, put support under jack--nothing worse than a jack starting to lean while jacking and falling sideways--damages jack and possibly vehicle--- Once you get vehicle safely off ground, place jack stands (on secure ground again) under vehicle by reaching under (without putting your body under) by arm's length only and place jack as tight to frame as possible. Keep jack stands as equal height if possible to keep vehicle level. Before crawling under vehicle, lower lift jack a bit till frame is secured against jack stands--leave jack lift in place as well if possible with pressure against vehicle. As an added measure, I will slide a wheel under vehicle just for added comfort--- so now you should have vehicle on level, solid ground, chocks in place unless all wheels off, jacks stands secured, leveled against frame/jack points, and lift jack left in place, under some pressure, if possible. Oh and make sure jack stands are in good condition (no weld cracks, etc.) and proper tonnage rating for vehicle you're supporting. Getting under a vehicle being held with a jack lift only is gambling with your life and playing Russian Roulette. Have a safe, happy day! :)
