    Floor Jacks

    Wanting to buy a new floor jack. Which ones of the China Freight ones are supposed to be good? Any other suggestions?

    I've had harbor freight and big red ones. All pretty close. The big red seemed to be built better, but that also made it heavier. The HF ones come with a bit more thought like foam on the handles.

    Minus the lift capacity the HF aluminium ones are pretty nice if you have to move them around much.

      The Yellow Daytona far exceeded my expectations.

        Same here. Got a yellow daytona and I love it.

        I used a coupon from https://www.hfqpdb.com/ to get it a little bit cheaper.

        I've got a friend with a $800 Snap-On one and they're absolutely identical (they sued HF about it and lost).

          I rock the heavy black one from HF for the last 10 years or so - highly recommend, lifts anything easily.

          I recently bought the alum one and while it is nice and light I used it to lift the front of my full sized car yesterday and was surprised to see it struggling to lift it.

            Which HF aluminum jack? The 2.5 ton one I have is a beast. Lifts my F550 service truck front end with no issue at all.

              Another vote for the Daytona jacks at HF I have 2 of them and I'm satisfied

                I've got three different size HF aluminum jacks, they are pretty awesome for the price.

                Had one die a few years back, they replaced it under the extended warranty.

                    Not sure, I just put it away.

                    It struggled to lift the front of a GS300 so I know for sure it would not lift your 550.

                    My other one used to lift my F350 no problems.


                    **Edit**

                    This would explain it as this is the one I have

                      x4 on the newish daytona jacks, way better than the older ones

                        X Whatever for this jack. I bought a 3 ton low profile Daytona about a year ago and it will lift and hold my 7500# truck with ease and is still low pro enough to fit under my DD Kia.

                          X5. Blue version of the Yellow Daytona. Awesome jack!
