    3-ton - Is that the weight limit? Or how much each one weighs? :p

    Those will save time. And built in safety for the ones who just don’t use jack stands!

    Can't find the length of the stroke on the jack in the specs. That would be the maximum amount you could actually raise something. They seem handy for many things. Not sure I'd replace my floor jack and jack stands with them just yet but there are times when they'd be a better option and they are definitely more versatile. I like the idea about lifting floor joists and such with it.

    If you get a couple, do a tool review for us if you would. I'm curious if you'd like them for automotive work.

    I ordered them. There range is 11 inches to 21 inches. The jack has a 6.25 inch ram. So it can lift from 11 inches to 17.25 inches net...

    I thought they would be go for leveling trailers...

    You don't know how right you are...

    The are heavy at 20 LBS each. I got two and they work great. Very stable, unlike a bottle jack. I'm always concerned with bottle jacks on uneven surfaces and slipping off the lift point. The base is great and the lift saddle will fit a round axle or the frame. They offer plenty of lift...

    The only negative at this point is the weight and they are hard to carry around because of the shape. Maybe I'll attach some kind of handle. There is also no return spring, so you have to push them down manually to fully collapse them like a bottle jack. I believe they are a little over design which I like. It would also be nice if there was someway to attach the two handles to the jack...

    It will be only a matter of time before HF comes out with their version. Don't think I would carry one around in the Jeep because of the weight and size (won't fit in to the tool compartment), but I will carry one in my trailer and use them in the shop...

    (y)(y)(y)(y) out of five... :D
